    Upgrade to ICS / reinstall Android

    I'm considering buying my first transformer. Do you think it will be possible/easy to reinstall Android to change the language version from Chinese to English?
    And of course when ICS is released for it I will be wonting to install that too!

    Thanks in advance

    Hello and welcome to the Forum. If you go to ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- you can download the US or anyother version you want. You must unzip the file to the root directory od your SD card and restart the TF

    Thanks. One more thing - can I back up the original OS first in case I need to reinstall it if it needs to go back for repair? If so how? I'm in China and I'm sure it won't be serviced with an English OS on it.

    There is a free application in the Android Market called "App Backup" that will do a backup of your applications and data. You should do that first. Your Google account also backs up a lot of things.

    Then, in Setting -> Privacy, you have the option to reset the Transformer to Factory Data. This will probably wipe everything you have and reset to the English OS you installed (I write "probably" because I am not keen to test it.)

    Then, you would reinstall the original OS that you smartly downloaded from the link in the previous post at the same time you downloaded the English OS.

    But please note that this assumes that, whatever repairs you may need, your device still somehow works. This is not about the Transformer: any device that is totalled bricked would have to be taken to repair in whatever state it is.

    You can always download the CN version as well. Store it on your PC or Thumb Drive for when you need it

    Will the fresh install of Android from the Asustek website include Polaris Office and all the other tasty apps that come with the Transformer Prime?
