This is working fine to me:

Before lock the screen to set the tablet on standby, I clean the tasks using Asus task manager widget. It is working so far till now. But is not 100%, sometimes it get freeze on boot screen after a reboot on sleep status, but is rare.

It can helps till new firmware comes to everyone.

At this point if Asus gave me a file called trojan_malware_TF101_update.exe I'd try it.

Look for threads with the phrase ”screen tearing” and you should find info. An easy way to see it happening is to get about a dozen apps in the recent list, the list you get when you tap the icon next to home that looks like 2 rectangles superimposed on each other. When you tap to expand you'll get tearing of the image on the screen but it's just an artifact of the screen corruption issue which causes other troubles also.

I will be first in line to get it only because I'm confident it will be better than what we have now. Yes, I am gullible.

Sadly, so would I.

I'm not really a regular poster but I did get contacted by Gary to submit logcats. I am not a tester of the fix but I wish I were.

I hope they nail this down soon. I still get random reboots, frozen reboots and screen tearing.

Screen Tearing and Flicker Remain after System Wipe
Received a response from Asus advising me to do a system wipe. Seems to have corrected the reboot, hang problem. Does not fix the screen flicker and tearing. Hopefully Asus will find a fix... soon!

Just shows ASUS still have no clue, this entire thread proves wiping does not cure things, only slows them down

Wink Short term fix that works for me.....
Well, I understand what everyone says about Asus needing to fix the problem, and I agree, and thus far it looks like they are attacking it as they should.

On myTF101, Honeycomb ran without a glitch.... as in NEVER, and always worked like a champ. I did the ICS update and thought it was sweet until I got the random reboots and lock-ups. On another forum, I heard about a thousand different work arounds and I just hate doing a ton of things to make something work that should never have been broken in the first place....

However, one thing I have found which fixed ALL of my random reboots and hangups, is Wake Lock. Battery consumption is a little faster, but I have gone a month without any random reboots or any other problems.....

Not a solution by any means, but a bandage to get your tablet totally usable and reliable until Asus releases their official fix. After which I will uninstall Wake Lock and proceed as usual.....

Just a thought, hope it helps some of you who are frustrated.....

My TF101
It seems that every day when I get to work and pull the device out of by backpack, It is stuck on the Asus logo... Fine, hold power button for 10 seconds, reboot, no more problems the rest of the day.

Screen tears, happens quite a bit when I have used many apps in a short period of time, as long as I am able to switch between apps, not really a big concern for me.

I used to be one who would try all the little tips and tricks, found out over time, it just messed my device up more than it helped it... Waiting on Asus to send a fix. That is if this model is still in their sights... they may be pulling a Samsung and are now focusing on the Prime, 300 and newer devices...

Love ICS on it. Found that the support is a lot more responsive on google + and Facebook... they actually respond to some of my questions and comments. Appreciate this thread as I watch it to see what is going on. Thanks guys/gals.
