    Will 4.3 come to the TF201???

    Hi all ... does anyone know whether Asus will release Android 4.3 for the TF201?

    I saw a report from an Italian site claiming it will arrive in Q3 2013... can anyone confirm this?

    Thx

    To the best of my knowledge, the TF201 hasn't yet been updated to 4.2 - I'll stand to be corrected on that by a Tf201 owner, of course.

    With that in mind I would suggest that there is little or no chance of an official Asus update to 4.3 for the Prime.

    But to be honest, given that Android Jelly Bean exists in 3 incremental forms of 4.1, 4.2 & 4.3 but all three are still Jelly Bean - with the significant "project butter" update that JB had over ICS - and which really does make a difference to the smoothness & maturity of the OS, I wonder if it really matters that much.

    That's just my take on it, of course.

    Haven't heard anything, but judging from 4.2 news (first an update was announced, then complete silence untill they took it back), don't expect 4.3 update.
    And since they -might- keep the same dock, it is a chance to update to the new tf700.

    I believe there's a post somewhere here that shows a statement from ASUS that 4.1.1 is the last version for the TF201. Yup. Here it is: Asus confirms no Android 4.2 update for the Prime

    Transformer Prime TF201 - Dead in the water!!!

    "Thank you for contacting ASUS Customer Service.
    My name is Myra and it's my pleasure to help you with your problem.
    We apologize for the inconvenience in using our product and thank you for your understanding.

    Hi, we're very glad to help you. In order to enable consumers to enjoy the best experience, the original OS for ASUS Transformer Pad Prime TF201 is Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. And then we updated it to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
    In view of the Jelly Bean 4.2 upgrade, ASUS assess Android 4.2 will occupy larger hardware space. This will lead to insufficient storage space. And it need to remove a number of preloading software and function.
    In order to make the greatest experience, ASUS recommend users to use Android Jelly Bean 4.1 and will not provide 4.2 upgrade services. Thank you.

    If you have any further questions, comments, or concerns please do not hesitate to let us know. We will be more than happy to assist you.

    Have a nice day!

    Best regards,
    Myra

    This seems like nonsense, or BS if you want to be impolite - I don't know about 4.2 on the TF201 but people report on XDA Developers forum that they are happily running Cyanogen JB 4.3 rom with no issues regarding problems with storage space. 4.3 has also cured their tablets of lag and slow down that the last Asus offical Jellybean update introduced.

    Just this morning, I received and installed some form of OS firmware update for my TF201 Prime Android - seemed pretty significant in size, judging by time it took to download and install, with several tablet restarts in the process. System info still reads OS as 4.1.1, but build number seems incremented. In any event, got SOME form of OS update, but no clue as to what it provides - or removes...

    Any one else experienced this as of this date, 10/13/13 - or any clue as to what benefits might have been provided?

    I just checked for updates on my TF201 and there were none as of 10/14. There has been no update for me since November 22, 2012.
