I can't find one thread dedicated to finding out why we can't OTA or Unlock, or both. Hopefully somebody will be able to look at this list and figure out what's going on. Once we gather a significant amount of submissions, I'll be writing to Asus with this thread as reference. Please submit the following:

1. First 6 digits of your serial
2. OTA Update: Yes or No
3. Manual update: Yes or No
4. Firmware version: .21 .22 .26 etc.
5. Were you able to unlock: Yes or No
6. Root: Yes or No
If anybody thinks something else should be added to this list please let me know.

Mine:

1. C6OKAS
2. OTA - Unconfirmed, manually updated to .26
3. Manual update - Yes
4. Firmware : .26
5. Unlock: Yes
6. Root: Yes

UPDATE: Even with the limited number of responses so far there is already a pattern forming. It seems that if you can't OTA, you cant Unlock either. Sounds like an issue with Asus not communicating with our devices properly, as a few of you have guessed already. Please keep submitting so we can build a larger data pool.

UPDATE: As of 11:00pm PST, the unlock apk just worked. Been trying since the day it came out and tonight it just randomly worked. I urge all of you to check to see if it's working for you and please update with results.

Last Update 8/8/12: It seems that a good amount of us are now able to OTA and Unlock. Whatever the issue was it looks like ASUS fixed it.

The S/N doesn't seem to be relevant: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...795156&page=15
Edit: And the update process actually sends only the IMEI to ASUS servers, not the S/N, so unless they do another check on their side, it is even more irrelevant in this case.

Yes, I read all the posts on that one. It doesn't seem to be relevant, but it doesn't hurt to list it just in case.

Have you guys tried manually pushing the firmware to your tablet and updating it that way?

I also cant unlock the bootloader . Needed to manually update my tablet from .21 to .26
Rooting was no problem.

Will this ever get fixed or should I RMA my tablet??

Rumor is that it may be fixed. But that all rests on how asus is going to handle the problem.

I've done a quick search of the other sites and a Google search & haven't found anything new or useful.

Where'd you get this rumor?
