Nearly 8 weeks since ICS first dropped, yes. 4 weeks since Asus actually acknowledged the problem and started this thread. I'm almost shocked to hear myself say this, but it doesn't feel like its been that long, while obviously for some of you, it probably feels even longer!

Considering that I still use my TF101 daily, I would not label that as "hopelessly unstable". Unstable? Yeah, I'd call it that, but certainly not "hopeless". I have previously posted that I've gotten a whole week of total stability out of my TF101, so that's definitely not hopelessly unstable, at least not in my book. Should I always get that much stability? Yeah... and more. I think I almost never had to reboot under 3.2.1 -- it was that solid. I haven't had a reboot and hang for nearly two weeks now, and save about 3 or 4 SODs and a few apps misbehaving, I've been quite lucky as of late. What's bugging me most are the video issues -- the screen flicker & generally poor performance in stuff that runs butter smooth on my Galaxy Nexus.
My brother tells me that he's gotten news that Acer intends to release ICS for the A500 and A100 on April 27 (he owns an A500). If they get a stable ICS build before we get our issues at least semi-fixed on the TF101, I think I'll be abandoning Asus as my tablet maker of choice, keyboard dock or not. My tablet is certainly useable, but it sure worked a lot better with 3.2.1.
I still think Asus needs to pull the current ICS OTA builds until they have addressed the issues being discussed here, but leave the images up for manual download. If I want to be a beta tester, I'd volunteer -- I don't particularly appreciate being forced into it just by owning a device.
Now, come on Asus, tell us something or push out a fix. March 20 through April 17 and the only thing we've been told is that they're working on it (and to think, how many people I recommended the TF101 to, man I'm glad they didn't all buy it! I'd feel a bit awful right about now ...)
