    [ Solved ] Firmware downloaded but won't install

    My new TF300 notified me of the new firmware (Jelly Bean) and although I gave the ok to download it, once it was downloaded the tablet is not being updated to the new OS and I no longer see the download in the notifications area. When I check "About tablet" it shows it's running Android 4.0.3 and when I go to System Firmware Update and run a check it reports "There is no update available for your device currently."

    I've tried both regular and cold reboots but the firmware check still shows nothing available. Is there a way to trigger the tablet to either cleanly recheck for the new OS or to find the downloaded installation and run it? Unfortunately I don't have a microSD card yet so I can't install it manually.

    Thanks.

    Welcome to the forum

    Go to settings - apps - all Find DMClient and tap it. Tell it to clear cache force close, then find CMClient and do the same then restart and check again.

    Thanks, I tried those steps with both a regular restart and then with a cold boot but it still shows no update available and unit running 4.0.3.

    That is strange! You could go to the ASUS site, download the firmware that matches your location. Unzip the first file and put it on a FAT32 microSD card and restart. You may also be able to drop that file into the root of your TF and it should recognize it.

    I don't have a microSD card yet but I like your idea above. The only way I can think of to get the file from a PC to the TF is either Bluetooth or ASUS WebStorage...I'm going to try WebStorage first (Bluetooth is iffy on my PC).

    I have a link below that includes a number of ways to transfer files from the PC to your TF. That should put you in business. (The Master Guide)

    Worked like a charm! After I transferred the ZIP file to the root the TF saw there was a firmware update and let me install it. Thanks for your tips and links (especially Preparing for ICS - JB or other updates ).
