The main thread of the update got messy and my guide was buried there so I'm opening a separate thread dedicated for help with the JB update (my first real contribution to XDA!).

Recommendations! prior to updating:
  • Delete and re-create the Voodoo root backup, just in case.
  • Unfreeze all frozen apps.

I'm still gathering all the info from the previous threads.

For those who rooted but are still locked, and having issues with updating, here's something that might help (continuing from: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...ostcount=111):
This seems to help for those who unlocked as well.

There were 3 files missing from /system/xbin that were required for the update to work.
It was confirmed by several users that the same files are applicable for all regional software variants.

Missing files:
http://www.mediafire.com/?cqccrt70xyrxjwz

The US update file (thanks Wipeout and Bait-Fish):
http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?zzg4pjccz0od9uo
CRC32: 5F044C22
MD5: C7F2DDC50DB3E96673977E41CEB643D6
SHA-1: 6966DE005C9E83A968025673B187884E375BB680

The WW update file (thanks for kikistans for uploading):
http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?kzr30e1vufbgee9
CRC32: 954022CD
MD5: C5D117D05399281BAB243B2420D721A8
SHA-1: B063E4ECA70985C66128D81ADF5B4C48383C64FE

The TW update file (thanks for lineager for uploading, and for beckzz for notifying me):
http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?b3jt0m8f7427ix3
or
http://d-h.st/kks (Original link by lineager)
CRC32: 7C828B02
MD5: 9259363BC2A20558ABB635515E979076
SHA-1: FC339F2FB67693D642BC5425E2B0940E152D7D17

The Guide:
  • Extract the above zip and put the three files on the main storage.
  • Copy the dlpkgfile to the main storage
  • Enter shell:
  • SU
  • mount -o remount,rw /system
  • cp /mnt/sdcard/dexdump /system/xbin/dexdump
  • cp /mnt/sdcard/ps3bttest /system/xbin/ps3bttest
  • cp /mnt/sdcard/rfcomm /system/xbin/rfcomm
  • chmod 777 /system/xbin/dexdump
  • chmod 777 /system/xbin/ps3bttest
  • chmod 777 /system/xbin/rfcomm
  • mount -o remount,ro /system
  • cp /mnt/sdcard/dlpkgfile /cache/dlpkgfile
  • echo '--update_package=/cache/dlpkgfile' >> /cache/recovery/command
  • Exit shell.
  • Shut down tablet.
  • Turn on while holding the "volume down" key.
  • When it vibrates, release the power key and keep holding the volume key.
  • Three lines appear, hit "Volume UP".
  • Update starts!
  • Update Finishes!

Additional Notes:
  • Some users reported success after replacing the build.prop with the one attached here (ripped from the US .28 blob).
  • Reported several times: It appears that temporarily unrooting through Voodo increases the chances for the update to complete successfully.
  • Should an attempt to update regularly fail, checking for the update again may result in a "no update for your device" message.
    Clearing the app data for CMCLient and DMClient (Settings-> Apps -> All tab) and then checking for updates again is reported to force the update to re-download. Sometimes this has to be repeated for 2-3 times.
  • Here's a great guide by 1wayjonny for those who still face issues after trying the method listed here. It involves completely wiping the device, but it should also help for those facing the malformed /system/bin folder issues. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=261
  • 3/10/2012: Asus has released the full system images of Jelly Bean. If all else fails (try going through the FAQ first):
    http://support.asus.com/Download.asp...%20TF201&os=32

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1706588

My update is still failing! How can I get additional help?
Open adb, and type in the following:
  • su
  • cat /cache/recovery/last_log
  • Post the output here.
When posting, it's best to wrap the log in CODE tags, for easier reading.

Common issues found through the update log:
  • script aborted: assert failed: file_getprop("/system/build.prop"
    This is a case of mismatched build.prop file. Replace the build.prop, and try again the steps from cp /mnt/sdcard/dlpkgfile /cache/dlpkgfile onwards.
  • Command: "/sbin/recovery" | WITHOUT | "--update_package=/cache/dlpkgfile"
    The update command was not written successfully. Try the following:
    • SU
    • cp /mnt/sdcard/dlpkgfile /cache/dlpkgfile
    • rm /cache/recovery
    • mkdir /cache/recovery
    • echo '--update_package=/cache/dlpkgfile' >> /cache/recovery/command
    • Now reboot and boot to recovery as described above.
  • script aborted: assert failed: apply_patch_check("/system/bin/***
    Some busybox installers remove the original binaries from system/bin, causing the update to fail. The first to be checked is always gzip, but even after adding it manually the next binary (ip) is reported as missing.
    Call to arms! I'm looking for some help in trying to resolve this issue. See this message: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=104

Todo:
Complete FAQ
Looking for all other dlpkgfile for missing variants (TW etc.).

Thanks (in no particular order ):
Wipeout, Bait-fish, 1wayjonny, kikistans, beckzz turboman93, csetera and lineager for helping to form this thread.

Confirmation: This guide was written for the US variant. Does it work on non-US variants?

I can confirm it works, I'm from Malaysia and followed your guide, it work flawlessly. Thanks

Can you please check which variant you have? Go to Settings -> About -> Scroll to Build Number, the variant is the two letter code after the build name (JRO03C.**_epad).

Also, if anyone has modified or replaced any system files (ie keyboard.apk for multi-browser mod), or the build.prop (modified build prop for supposed performance improvements), they need to be replaced with the ORIGINAL files before you start the update. If not, it will throw an error and will tell you in the log what the particular issue was.

Cheers and good luck guys!

Pls guys, for your own safety: don't post full S/N in your Logs!

did you unfreeze all your apps?

I have no idea what DataBackup.apk is.

Ok, for both of you:
did you unfreeze all apps?
Have you any changes in the build.prop?

pls check your sku-version and if you got the right files...

---------- Post added at 04:24 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:22 PM ----------

Ok, just to confirm:

this guide works well for US and WW SKU, just checked it myself flashing back to .28 ww sku and then upgraded..works like a charm!
