    Question TF101G (3G) Update to ICS?

    Hi Guys!
    Ok, now I am thoroughly confused! After days of doubt and reading about the problems with the upgrade, I finally decided to be the ultimate optimist and do the Upgrade from HC 3.2.1 to ICS. Found the firmware and did a last check on the Forums to set my mind at ease .... just to find that there MIGHT be an issue with the 101g (which I have). Somewhere on this Forum (I cannot find the thread again), it was suggested that 101g owners should wait for the 3G-specific firmware and that the present upgrade is not suitable for 3G-equipment. Rather than going through days of doubt again, can someone please give me the truth on ICS and the 101g - is the present update suitable?
    Thanks in advance for the answer(s)! Hopefully no conflicting information ...)

    My advice -just be patient a little longer & wait for an OTA update. We are hoping for one sometime this week.

    The TG101 firmware will work fine, but 3G will not.

    If you need 3G you will have to go back to HC and wait.

    OTA?

    Is that a fix for other issues as well?

    OTA = over the air
    FOTA = firmware over the air
    IE the standard way you have got your firmware updates in the past.

    Hopefully this new firmware will address many of the glitches experienced by some in the initial release. Exactly the same as happened with Honeycomb as it progressed from 3.0 to 3.2.1

    I have updated to official ICS for TF101

    Hi I have made the mistake to upgrade with the wrong firmware.

    If you use the official firmware for TF101 you will be able to "upgrade" your TF101G to ics.
    BUT, you will not have 3g and you will have a reboot EVERY TIME your TF tries to enter sleep mode.

    Besides, I have contacted Asus support and they have no solution to revert to Honeycomb but sending the tablet in for repair.

    I will wait for the new firmware hoping that I will be able to "upgrade" to the 3g ICS.

    Bottom line is: Don't upgrade before the 3g firmware is released.

    I've made exactly same mistake with the same outcome.
    Although, 3 in-the-raw factory resets help things to "bed in", but 3G remains unreachable.
    Went back to HC with ViperMod Option 1, CVM Recovery and WW version of 8.6.6.23 firmware from Asus site.
    It even overrides the root, just need to WIPE DATA on reboot; otherwise TF gets stucked on ASUS logo. Takes only 10mins cca. to revert.

    Here is a nice guide one of our members wrote to flash to a different firmware if you need more detail than what kifla posted.

    In Part 0 just download the 8.6.6.23 firmware for the TF101G.
