Mine updated without problems, but did take 8 minutes to restart... I do wonder why some have experience bricked updates... could it be instability caused by a certain combination of installed apps? is it important to do a clean reboot first before applying the update? (postpone , then reboot and apply?)

If we could try to identify a cause for the bricks, then perhaps we could at least have a "best practices" before applying any updates.

Just a thought... since this could happen next time to any one of us.

I got 3 updates, two firmware, one camera, the screen sensitivity is much better, that makes me really happy cause it was missing quite a few presses sometimes especially when it's really cold and dry out, low humidity

I am going to go and get some food and calm down before calling tonight.
I feel your pain.


If my Prime comes in perfect tomorrow I will likely skip these automatic updates.

I got 3 updates in total- the first one was the main update, after accepting, it rebooted on its own and I got the green robot with gears spinning... this went on for a few minutes-

Then , I got the ASUS logo- it sat on this screen for over 7 minutes.

then it finally reached the login screen.

I logged in, and there was a firmware upgrade available- I accepted, and it downloaded and installed. It popped up saying that update was finished. It did not ask me to reboot. I did not reboot.

Then I received another update notice. (third one) This one was for the camera. I accepted. It downloaded (took a good 2 minutes to download) It installed and popped up saying "update complete"

Thats where I am at. I have let the screen sleep but have not yet done a full shutdown and restart.

Hope this can help others.

people who got mulitple updates were most likely on older versions than a good number of people. as the different versions that people had were a lil fragmented and some were on older cam and build versions than others. I only received the one system update to put me at .33. as my other component versions are up to date already.

IPAD- 32GB WiFi ver. 4.2.1

Transformer Prime 32GB(Retired)

NEXUS 7 16gb Unlocked & Rooted JB 4.3 CleanRom 4.0 Faux Kernel

Galaxy Note 10.1 32gb- Hyperdrive Rom w/ Zeus kernel AMAZING!

Samsung Galaxy SIII - JB 4.1.2

Lg Optimus G Pro- new 1080P 5.5in. Display w/Snapdragon 600 Andreno 320

Microsoft Surface Pro 128gb. Full HD Display 1080P Windows 8 HD4000 Graphics Type Cover

Yeah my first updated fine. But once I hit to upgrade the 2nd eeepad update the screen became unresponsive for about an hour. Didn't show update complete in background.
