So like some other people I saw, I was able to download the new firmware but it failed during the installation. Tried with root. Tried without root. Nothing worked. Apparently if you mess with any of the apps/bloatware that come it may not work.

Here is how I fixed it:

Goto ASUS.com, goto SUPPORT>DOWNLOADS>Put in Transformer Prime. Select Android OS and then FIRMWARE. Download this: Eee Pad Transformer Prime TF201 Firmware: V9.4.2.7 Only for US SKU (Android 4.0.3)

It will be a ~300mb zip file. Once its downloaded, extract it, its a zip inside of a zip. Once you get the new zip, place it on /sdcard/ and power off your device.

Once I turned mine BACK on, I went to System, About Tablet and checked for a FW upgrade. It saw the file I put on and allowed me to reinstall 4.0.3 ICS, afterwhich I was able to get tonights OTA.

I know this isnt anything special, but trying to get info out of the current thread is tough.

If your device doesn't see an update after you put the zip on your tab, try powering off, holding POWER and VOLUME DOWN and then pressing VOLUME UP once you get to the screen with tiny text. It will attempt to update that way but fail, and youll get a message once you get back to your homescreen that a update failed and you can attempt it again that way.

Will it navigate? I'm downloading now. I've always locked satellites, GPS-only, in the house. Won't navi though. Hope this helps.

Just updated through the regular Firmware update. It took a few tries, kept coming back not connected to the internet.

I got the update :S

Updated straight from HC to ICS 9.4.2.11. Kinda sucks though, because I can't root it now.
