    However....I understand the TF101 Transformers have sold far more copies than the Prime or TF300, so, given the Xoom is getting it, would that make sense?

    In any case, they admitted in the article that this was simply their best guesses, and they have no official information. It's possible that an article like that gets picked up by a writer in another country, possibly taken as fact, and then repeated.....and consequently you start having an internet myth about what updates will or won't be done.

    Until ASUS comes out and officially says no, I'm going to cross my fingers.

    They were one of the companies who supposedly had that 18 month agreement with Google. The TF101 came out in April 2011....so 18 months would mean October 2012 before support ends. The fact that the Xoom will run it would make me very suspicious if they didn't.

    One question though....if there is no official port, does that mean that we couldn't root it, and stick whatever version of Cyanogen Mod onto it that supports Jelly Bean?

    That pretty much mirrors my information and assessment.

    The TF101 is not that old, and the PRIME and 300 are still going through their updated ICS girations.

    While I am not at all a proponent or believe in rooting any tablet...if this becomes necessary to get JB - that would likely encourage millions of other TF101 owners to do it (too).

    i think you need at least two confirming sources before you start to burn the Asus man in effigy,, i dont know what is for true or not but this is the latest blurb from German face book.. taken from XDA forum..

    Exclamation tf101 IS getting the 4.1 update
    Asus denies the rumors via their german Facebook page:

    "We need do deny this clear. Our colleagues from the Netherlands have made no statement about TF101/SL101, but merely confirmed that TF201/TF300/TF700 are going to receive an update to JB. The converse, that TF101/SL101 wont get an update to JB is not true. According to current knowledge, an Android 4.1 update will come for our users of older TF101/SL101.

    Maybe it's just me looking through rose coloured glasses... But Scuzzo's source seems to be the most credible. I hope so anyway. In which case there is no reason to stop crossing our fingers that our TF101 users will get a JB upgrade.

    Having said that my TF101 does everything I need it to do and then some, and it has been pretty stable. The benefits of using the TF101 have arisen from its connectivity and versatility, rather than whether it ran HC or ICS.... and many have found the ICS upgrade less than satisfactory. I suspect it will be the same with JB.

    We need to deny this clear. Colleagues from the Netherlands have made no statement about TF101/SL101, but merely confirms that a Jelly Bean TF201/TF300/TF700 update be received. The converse, that is not TF101/SL101 JB update will be false and pure speculation. According to current knowledge, and users of older TF101/SL101 enjoy an Android 4.1 update will come.

    The problem is that the "official" ASUS FB pages have provided conflicting information in the past (remember the ICS upgrade). The only way you will know for sure is when it happens or very close to that time. Until then we will get rumor after rumor and won't really know until they actually do it.

    In another post it was stated that the TF101 has sold more copies than any of the later ASUS offerings, this might actually work against us as many of us have stuck with the old TF101 rather than upgrading as it performs well and we already have sunk the cash. One way to gently push us towards a newer product is to NOT upgrade the TF101 to Jelly Bean.

    Good news regarding JB on TF101 (SL101)

    Hey folks, I have some great News!

    On their german facebookpage, Asus Germany denied the rumors that their first gen tablets wont be updated to 4.1! Only letdown is that they didn't announce any time periods for the updates to arrive. Only thing we know by now, is that every tab will get JB. So a big thumbs up for Asus, for keeping their entire line of tablets up-to-date and I hope they don't srew up like their catastrophic ICS update on the original Transformer...

    Here's the source: click

    It's german, but Google will translate it for you

    Oh I've overseen the thread... shame on me! It's been awhile since I've last been here and was too exited to post correctly! Only this time I'm waiting on some reviews first, and do not jump directly on the JB wagon!
