Ditto on my wife's tablet. It would reboot on her while she was browsing the web or playing a game. I took it back to HC a short while back so we have not tried the new update to see if that issue persists.

I have never had any difficulties with RE or poor battery life. I have been running the OTA 4.0.3 upgrade since about 15 minutes after staying up for the first time. The notification of the upgrade availability was almost immediate.

I am getting to the point where root makes sense to me, though it doesn't appear to be an advantage to flash an alternative ROM at this point. Perhaps if my logic seems faulty, someone could make a suggestion.

There are many reasons why u would choose to flash a custom rom. IMO, the most common reasons are...some custom roms are not based on Asus builds, which will have cosmetic differences, allows more tinkering and customization, and more settings to choose from, which again enables the user to tweak more. The custom roms that are based on Asus builds tends to be cleaner (already debloated) and built-in optimized performance and improved battery tweaks. So u can think of those roms as optimized rooted stock roms. Its really up to u if u don't feel any of that is necessary. But that's The beauty of Android being open source. We have the choice and its why most of us are here on xda in the first place.

Default Better but not perfect

ever since ics first came out I've had RR and screen flicker and apps freezing. Since last update (.21) no RR so far screen flicker very rarely and very slight apps freeze every now and then, but if I push back then just go back seems okay. For now its much better overall. I thought I was going to just have to sell transformer and buy an iPad. Not really but I was very disappointed with it. Glad Asus is finally starting to figure it out. Hopefully they can continue to put out more updates, just not like .11 or .17.

I have ics on my Samsung infuse, my wife's HTC vivid and all 3 of our transformers with almost zero issues... Don't lose hope yet.

Has anyone had it do the reboots WHILE using the Transformer? Just curious now!

Since my initial ICS update, i've had a couple of reboots, whilst i've been using it. Just about acceptable IMO. I use my tablet twice a day, and switch it off between those times, so I've never had to many RR or SOD's, maybe once a week if i'm unlucky. Last night, I decided to leave it on for a few hours, just to see what happens. 4 random reboots later , two with battery drain, I can now see why some people are getting extremely frustrated.

My B90 TF101 is about as stock as you can get, no root, no dock, nothing special....

Same here, both our i9100 have ICS and the only bug/issue they have and share is WiFi crashing sometimes which forces us to reboot the phones. Despite that they run smooth and stable.

And the TF101 runs fine ,too, except for those random reboots which mostly cause the device to get stuck at the bootligo or bootanimation. No other issues with ICS and imho its much smoother then HC.

Default My view is most of the ICS problems are upstream

I see only occasional reboots from my Transformer. I need to leave it powered 24/7 to see the reboots. After the latest ICS firmware update (IML74K.US_epad-9.2.1.21-20120413) I note the frequency of anomalous behaviour is about 1/2 of what it was before ... but its still there. Typically on the 2nd or 3rd day of 24/7 operation I can reproduce a reboot. But leaving my Transformer powered 24/7 is NOT my nominal way of operation, hence if I were to operate my Transformer nominally (for me), I would never see the problem.

Glad to read your i9100 with ICS is doing better. While I see some users are happy with their Samsung and ICS (on this thread), I also note that people I know with Samsung and ICS are not having the same golden experience, and they are getting random reboots (which are NOT always easily noticeable) and also getting the WiFi crashing.

I've also read in other forum threads that other ICS tablet users (other than Asus with the Transformer) are also noting ICS instability.

This re-inforces my view that the ICS problem is to a large extent upstream.
