Hi

This is a compatibility package for the Asus EEE Pad Slider SL101. It should be flashed with CWM on top of an ICS ROM that is compatible with the TF101.

Confirmed working!

If it fails, don't panic. Just flash the ICS ROM you were using again. If this is your first custom ROM on the Slider you should be able to go back to stock.

Don't use this with Honeycomb ROMS. If this one works I'll create another one for Honeycomb but I think someone already made one.

It should work perfectly with CM 9 and AOKP.

NB: the official update zip on the Asus website for the TF101 is fully compatible with the SL101.

Changelog:
v1.3: replaced updater binary
v1.2: replaced corrupt zip
v1.1: fixed updater script
v1.0: initial release (based on V9.2.1.17)

Features
Most of the TF101 ICS ROMS will work with the Slider without this but these files change some device specific settings:
-sound should be better (both speaker & headphones)
-battery life should be better
-support for more keyboards

Should be fixed, could you try again?

interesting, when I try to open the file on my computer, I get the error, "the archive is either in unknown format or damaged" Maybe a bad upload? I've downloaded three times now

I may not understand the purpose of this, but this package contains 100% the same files as ICS update for TF101. So what is "SL101" compatible here? Every ICS TF101 based ROM have already those files.

Or maybe it's only for CM?

The official update file contains these files and so does your ROM but these files are not included in some custom ROMs like CM9 or AOKP.

Asus uses one single update file to update the TF101, the TF101G and the SL101 and I even found something about the TF300T (not released yet).

Both speakers? LOL, it is true? Right now i know only one speaker the asus slider have (or just one is enabled?)
