The ASUS Transformer Prime tablet, the first to be graced with the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update a month ago has now received a fresh OTA update. This one brings the slate up to version 126.96.36.199, kernel version 188.8.131.52 and WiFi to version 184.108.40.206. Also Bluetooth version becomes 9.26. The software upgrade is supposed to fix problems such as random reboots, screen flickering and app crashes.
It’s also supposed to improve the WiFi speed, but there’s also a downside here: it breaks root access. This OTA package is coming to everyone in the US, at least for now and I guess that people in Europe should also receive by the weekend. If you haven’t been notified about the update, feel free to enter the Settings area, then About Tablet and System Firmware update to manually get it. If you spot any other improvements and functions, feel free to mention them in the Comments area below.
In the meantime, let me remind you that the Transformer Prime was supposed to get Android 4.0 as an update on January 12th and it came earlier, on the 10th, a nifty surprise for all users. Till then another tablet also got the update, the Motorola Xoom and these, together with the Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus, are the single ICS devices on the market right now.
