Default GARY: Firmware .14 freeze-reboot thread - .15 beta Firmware

I'm Starting this thread for everyone who's having this problem.

Lockup, freeze then reboot while doing normal task.

I have tried everything possible but it seems the new OTA is the problem with a small % of us.

Factory reset (no app install)
Hard reset(no app install)
revert back to .11, update to 13, then update to .14

NOTE: This problem does not occur while living the tablet in standby. It only happens when you start playing with it.

Same freeze-reboot problem. Tablet is useless cause even typing, apps, setting, market..... anything would cause this problem.

Serial # BCOKAS11XXXX

.11 works perfect

GARY was PM with this thread so please if you have this problem post here with your serial number (BCOKAS11XXXX)

2/21 update from Gary:

"I will contact several of the listed members privately to try a new beta patch from NVIDIA tomorrow that should address the users who downgraded from .13 to .11 and then skipped to .14, were on the leaked 11.1 (never use a leaked version) or had a problem going from .13 to .14. I am out of the office for a funeral today and please do not contact me for the beta patch directly. I will initiate the contacts to ensure a proper test group and if it works, then a quick firmware update will be released next week."

2/22 update
Today Gary will contact several members in the list for private beta testing patch from NVIDIA. I have updated the list including the serial numbers provided in this thread, this way Gary can pick members with different serial #(BC,CO,C1)

Update from Gary
I have sent instructions to the first control group. Hopefully everyone will be able to test the patch and not leak it. If it is leaked, my ability to provide test releases or additional support will stop for the foreseeable future. If the typical 70% do not respond to their PM and patch instructions then I will create a second control group tonight.


UPDATE FROM GARY .15 FIRMWARE BETA TESTING
"I will expand the control group tonight. So far, 60% of those I asked to participate have not replied to my inquiries or acknowledged the original PM. A little better than the normal 70% who do not respond so I will take that as a positive. For those who tried and replied, my thanks and based on results so far the users actually experiencing this problem should thank them also as it appears we can release this patch shortly"

Late 2/22 update from Gary
"I expanded the group tonight. If all is well in the morning then I will start increasing the size of each group tomorrow. It appears based on today's results that I will give HQ the go ahead to release this patch to qualification testing so we can get it in the release cycle for next week"

NOTE: PLEASE DO NOT LEAK THE BETA PATCH THAT GARY HAS PROVIDED US.

.15 BETA FIRMWARE IS NOT AVAIL TO PUBLIC, ONLY PRIVATE INVITATION FROM GARY. DO NOT CONTACT GARY FOR INVITATION.... AGAIN DO NOT LEAK IT


Update on .15 beta firmware
"So far so good 2 days zero freeze-reboot or force close. Fastest and smoother rom i have tried (.11,.13,14,15). Excellent battery life"

I have the same problem. Firmware .11 run great for a day, than I installed .13 and got a couple of sudden reboots for a week. After .14 I got a half-dozen of reboots just during a single evening! Too bad I didn't factory reset, though. My serial # is BC0CAS

Default Worse results

I just updated to the .14 update yesterday and now I am getting random freezes while in any program and then a reboot. I can hardly use my prime now, this is very frustrating What can be done? I hope Asus will find a resolution soon. Anybody else having this issue since the latest update? And my serial number begins with BCOKAS.............

Then just stay on .11 or whichever ota works. Not like there is anything magical about .14.

BCOKAS here as well.
My Prime worked great out of the box. .11 worked great. .13 random shutdowns. .14 works great (so far).
I'm really starting to think this has to do with Asus software and Nvidias CPU control software. I had 3 shutdowns with .13 while changing performance modes. I think Asus and Nvidia need to work together if they are not already.

Having the same issue as others with the freezing and then random reboots.
Today alone in less then an hour my prime rebooted 3 times.
.11 worked great except for the GPS, .13 had battery issues and with .14 it is almost unusable. I can not use it for more then 5-10 min and it reboots. It is now becoming a $500 paperweight

Wish I could got back to .11 and stay there.

Same here. .11 works great for me. .13 had the sleep of death issue. .14 fixed the sleep of death issue for me. But now the tablet randomly freezes then reboots. So frustrating!
