Actually, it seems to me that the last two ICS releases (.21 and .24) actually INCREASED the volume output noticeably - but like someone said, it's kind of subjective....

FYI - Current uptime with .24: 32 hours, 19 hours deep-sleep - VERY promising!

I would also like to see a detailed change log of fixes, issues resolved and several other of these beta testers results before I take an update.
What am I, chopped liver?

I thought the .21 release fixed the ”ICS sound is too low” issue.

It's funny you say that - I've noticed the same thing on both my Frankenformer setup and the new .24 release - I too hold my breath every time that slight delay appears!! :)

But, it always does come back to life!!

By the way - where are all of the other beta testers?? It seems that only me and @rxnelson are reporting anything....

.11 was the first ICS that was buggy I believe (I forget what was initially wrong, RR's and waking up I think)

.13 was meant to fix it but broke the volume

.19 Fixed the volume but not the reboots

.21 Didn't fix anything, it made everything that was wrong, worse

I agree. Someone leak the beta so more of us can help.

RE the volume thing. I don't have any objective reading on that, and I haven't tried to carefully compare it from one release to another, so I wouldn't take my previous comment too seriously.

I've always felt that the volume on my TF is anemic, one of the very few negatives on it.

Interesting that as I was reading the first post on my laptop about the TF volume being too low, my wife handed me the TF (it's technically hers), with the complaint that she couldn't hear her videos on YouTube very well, which is when I installed and set up the Equalizer app, then posted my response.

Heh, spooky

The volume problem was not system wide, and it didn't seem to effect everyone, it was media files such as videos and mp3's that had about 10% of the normal volume making it impossible to watch a movie and too quiet to listen to music

The Gmail issue is not an isolated issue:

The problem can also extend to several of Google's own apps, not just Gmail. There are scattered posts on the subject.

my B60 TF101 9.2.1.21 becomes worse.. yesterday it was reboot every time it goes to standby.

So, using nvflash, I flashed my B60 TF101 WW back to HoneyComb 8.6.5.13.
No reboot anymore, no SOD. So I guess, there are no damaged hardware / overheating.
Seems to me that the problems caused by some memory leaks / infinite loop / others bug somewhere on the unstable firmware, not the hardware.
