    [Solved] updating my tf300t

    This weekend i bought an Asus TF300T. It had android 4.03. I noticed the webbrowser sometimes crashes and I read this problem can be solved by updating to android 4.1.
    I used the option "system updates" in the settings menu, but no updates were found. On the website of Asus I can find updates, but I don't know how to download and install. Can anybody help me?
    Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum!

    First, the easy way - go to Settings - About - Updates - Check for updates. Then check the notificaitons (popup by the clock) to see if there is an update.

    If not, go to Settings - Apps - All - DMClient - Force Close then Clear Data. Repeat for CMClient.

    Reboot

    Settings - About - Updates - Check for updates. Then check notifications.


    IF THAT FAILS:

    Go to the Asus support site. Download the firmware for your SKU (WW, US, JP, DE, TW, etc). Unzip the file ONE TIME. It will still be a .zip file.

    Place this file on a microSD formatted for FAT32 and place it in your tablet. It may pop up with an update notification, or it may not. Reboot by holding the VOL DOWN and POWER (buttons on the tablet, not the keyboard dock if you have it) until you see some white text (about 12-15 seconds). Release both buttons and tap VOL UP within 5 seconds and it should go to RCK. You will see an Android with his stomach open doing the upgrade. If you get the red exclamation point, it failed. If not, you will have 4.1.

    If it failed, check your SKU and also check to make sure you unzipped it once but that it is still a .zip file.

    Thanks.
    I tried all the ways you suggested. I cleared CMClient and DMClient. When I used "check for updates" the tab says "Cannot download the file, wit and try again later".
    After that I went to the asus site and I downloaded firmware Version V10.4.2.19. There was no notice on the site that this was for any specific SKU. I unzipped the file called CN_epaduser_10_4_2_19UpdateLauncher.zip to an SD card. The file on the SD card was called CN_epad-user-10.4.2.19 zip. I put it in the tablet and unfortunately the update failed.

    Do you have a suggestion what I did wrong?

    PS also tried the update V10.4.2.18 for the WW SKU, but that failed also....

    You downloaded the CN or China SKU.

    Check your Build Number, it should have 2 characters after the epad that are WW, CN, TW, JP, US, DE, TB.

    Then go look for the proper SKU for your build.

    Most likely you have a US SKU if you are in the US, otherwise it is probably a WW (WorldWide) but check the build number to be sure.

    If you are still unsure, post the entire build info (letters, numbers and special characters) from Settings - About - Build

    Thanks X 2

    Thanks also...I was quite confused about how to upgrade from ICS to JB. My unit also did not indicate that an upgrade was available. So I manually loaded it on the microSD as you described and "voila"...JB is installed!

    Please help out before I ship back this new tablet.

    I just purchased this tablet TF300T android 4.0.3 built ILM74K.US_epad-9.4.3.30-20120604 and I can't install any of the 3 versions from ASUS's website I downloaded. The installation fails on all 3 files US_epaduser10_4_2_17UpdateLauncher.zip and the same for version 18 and 20.

    I did try all the above but nothing helped. I did format the sd card before a new version of the launcher was copied to the sd card.

    I'm totally stuck and very frustrated with this product. Please help

    [Solved] updating my tf300t

    Welcome to the forum!

    Did you unzip the firmware files once? They will still be a zip file.

    Frederuco, Thank you for the quick reply.

    I did unzip all files once. The files were added to the sd card one by one, the sd car were formatted in between, and all files were detected by the tab. The system alert showed that a system update were available. About 20 seconds into the installation they all failed.

    Hello,

    I see this thread is marked as solved, but what's with Ameridanes problem? The reason why i'm asking is, I got the same
    I've got nearly exact the same situation.
    Version is 4.0.3 built ILM74K.US_epad-9.4.5.30-20120907

    Downloaded some other US versions, 10.4.2.20, 10.6.1.27.5, copied to micro sd card. Message is displayed "new update found".
    Every version is recognized (I tried other sku too - despairingly -, but they are not recognized).
    So, every recognized version I tried, reboot my tf300t, starting the update and after a little while the update failed.
    The tablet reboot itsself and displays the message "the update is incompatible with my installed version".

    But I have US sku and just before the update was recognized like I described above.

    So what can I do?
