Quote from the Asus Global website, on the tab "download" choose "Android" as OS, then browse to "Utilities" and download the bootloader unlock tool, it dates from 22 may 2012:

Just like with the Prime, by unlocking you agree to the fact that you no longer have any warranty and are not eligible anymore for official Asus updates. Sad but true.

Well, I guess from Asus you don't. I assume Asus thinks that people who unlock there tablet are gonna install a custom ROM on it and are thus not in need of official updates..

Well makes sense. But usually ROMs incorporate the updates.

Yup indeed, so there is no real use anymore from getting official Asus updates after unlocking it, since custom roms will most likely include the updates taken from the official Asus/Google source code.
