Updated to .14 WW firmware today.
Since then, can't boot.

The tablet is stuck in a boot loop, tried hard reset (pinhole), swipe data by holding Volume down + power ... nothing works

Any ideas ?

Thanks

Use this Method:
EP201_SDUPDATE.ZIP (Rename extracted ZIP-File)

CONFIRM:
Works ONLY with MicroSD CARD (REMOVABLE - ROOT).
Inernal Memory FAILURE - Search only for REMOVABLE RECOVERY

HOW TO:
Shutdown Device
HOLD LOWER VOL. + POWER
CONFIRM within 5 Seconds with HIGHER VOL.

Works perfect...think with this method you can flash every FULL OTA - FW from EVERY SKU (without ROOT ???)

not my from here

as strange as this sounds, my GPS is working better and better on .14! i wasn't able to get any sats before hence the testing but now, sitting in my kitchen, i am able to get 10 sats with 8 locks albeit it drops to 0 every so often but it goes right back into action in 1 to 2 seconds max. more road testing this weekend and it works like a charm on the road. no clips, no phone placement, nothing... just the prime working on it's own.


here's what I don't seem to understand about the complaints on this board: it seems BC and C0 or C1's has issues rather inconsistently. some do, some don't. I have a BB build which I can only surmise from the logical naming convention that I have what is believed to be a very first build Prime yet I have least amount of problems (from freezing, none, to app hangs to battery issue, etc). maybe I got one that was built on a Wednesday?

donwnload firmware from asus site (I think .11 will be better for you). Rename file to EP201_SDUPDATE.ZIP, and copy it on MicroSD. Then follow instruction in post higher

I've noticed better battery life improvements. And a smoother interface.

You don't need it to be rooted, just extract the zip file from: http://support.asus.com/download.asp...2&hashedid=n/a
Once extracted, you'll see another zipfile.
Rename the extracted zip file to: EP201_SDUPDATE.ZIP put it in your SD card main folder.
Follow instructions with the volume- (volume down) & pwr button.

Thumbs up
Just updated and did a factory reset as Id thought it would be best (i had been experiencing serious reboot issues in 11 which lead me to not even use the tablet for over a week)

So far its running brilliantly WIFI has improved, I cant say for battery nor BT nor GPS as I haven't really tested it yet... however I have given google market a pounding and a few run on some simple games tower defense etc and I have had a few "pauses" on google market, (im downloading 30+ apps) but apart from that no reboots in what 2 hours, it was every half hour or so (dependent on use ofc) previously

so far a winner !!!

oh from UK and serial is.... BCOKAS######
