    How do I update my system?

    Hello everyone,
    I'm new to the Asus Transformer community, and to Android on general, and I mostly had one basic pondering:
    how do I update my Android version?
    I mean, I heard that a lot of the issues the Transformer is currently suffering from will probably be fixed when 4.0 gets released,
    but... how is it done?
    I mean, when a new version comes out, how will I install it on my tablet?


    And, one more thought- will more games run on 4.0?
    I see that there aren't many games fully optimized to the Android tablets...


    Thanks!

    System updates are usually done OTA (over the air). You will see a message that an update is available and it will install automatically.

    I updated manually. Downloaded the update from the Asus support site. Placed the zip file in the root directory of the sd card. The transformer picks it up and asks you if you want to apply the update.

    The zip might be in a zip archive itself.

    OTA update:

    Settings - About - Check for update (first option) and then it should appear in the notification area (lower right by the clock). Tap the update and it will download. Once downloaded, tap the update again and it should update.

    If not, go to the ASUS Support site and grab the update for your TF. Need to know if you have the TF101G or the TF101 (with or without 3G) and get the right build version. Instructions for getting this are on the support site. Grab the proper one, put it on the root of a microSD card and reboot and it should update.

    From my experience on this forum I think some people are expecting to see the Android Market symbol for a firmware update but on my system it has appeared as a separate small arrow pointing down. Just an fyi.

    Welcome to the Forum. ICS has not been released yet. We will probably know more about the release date next month.
