    Welcome to the forum!

    The final OFFICIAL Asus Firmware for the device is 4.0.3, released in July of 2012. The build number ends in .27

    There are LOTS of custom ROMS that go beyond 4.0.3. I have been running TeamEOS 4 since about December. It is Android 4.2.2 at this point, and is very stable despite being a "nightly" build.

    I have this thread that details how to install it as you will need to root and install a custom recovery.

    http://www.transformerforums.com/for...2-x-tf101.html

    There are other custom ROMs you can find at XDA and other sites. One of our staff members has a hybrid ROM that has CyanogenMod, ParanoidAndroid and AOKP features on one ROM. It is still a bit early for it, but he is working hard to get it fully functional. Curretnly the biggest issue is the keyboard dock function keys are not working, but beyond that it is fully functional.

    Welcome to the forum DCs, I retitled your thread from DCs to "Updating the TF101 to Jellybean," so members would know what it was about!

    I'm not the best when it comes to technical stuff, but i'd like to try and update the software version on my TF101 if possible.

    Is there a step by step guide available anywhere?

    Yes, it is right in the Development forum for the TF101. Have a look: Frederuco's Guide to Root and ROM the TF101

    I would highly recommend either KatKiss 4.2 or KatKiss 4.3.

    If you are on 4.0.3 you are up to date. If you want to move to 4.2 or 4.3 then you will need to root your TF and install a custom ROM.

    Nice one ..... Thanks

    One of the reasons i was thinking of upgrading was to use Sky Go on my TF101, but it seems like this isnt possible on this device.

    Any info on this?

    Sky go won't run on rooted devices. It's not the device that's the problem, it's the restrictions imposed by Sky.

    Still worth upgrading though - I'm running Katkiss 4.3 - my tablet is faster and smoother than ever.

    What benefits we will acquire when we update our 4.0.3 to 4.2 or katkiss4.3?? once we update it, can we still go back to 4.0.3? Or no more turning back? I really wanna update it because it has poor animation but im afraid to mess up.

    Welcome to the forum...and the "the afraid to mess up rooting and updating" club! From what I gather, besides some navigational perks, it will be a lot snappier! I guess if your warranty is expired, it's a no-brainer, but if you do mess up, the members and mods are very helpful at rescuing bricks here. I'm all talk, though, because I'm a member of the club, too
