Can't wait to get this device rooted. I went ahead and install Roach2010's Prime 1.5 ROM. Original data & system was backup via CWM (solarnz-R3).
No way back to JP roms as no update released yet.Finally an update was released.

Issues with custom ROM
[1] Dock's keyboard layout screwed. I've made a CWM package for fixing the layout of Japanese dock.

Hi !

Do you know if it's possible to use a Jap keyboard with (in my case) an Eee Pad Transformer bought in Europe ?

I'm wondering if the Android in this Jap version has something different to handle the Japanese keyboard layout

A few guys at Japanese Q&A site tried the standard keyboard. They report that the keyboard layout remain as Japanese. The keyboard layout must be hardcoded inside the firmware. I have read somewhere here that you can change that file if you have root access. In your case I think it will follow your firmware layout. I'm not sure.

Man, I'd love to get my hands on one of those. As it stands, whenever I want to type in Japanese I have to remove the Transformer from the dock and switch to a different on-screen keyboard and use that.

Why Japan is always the last everytime?
Why the whole world has the 3.1 and japan doesn't?
Any news about a possible update? I bought the transformer for my partner and here in japan (the foreigner version is overpriced) and as it's not my toy I do not feel confortable to root and everything (as I did for my N1 and her O1).
Any hope for an update? I am really pissed off!

@ilcontegis: Same with me. The rest of the world will probably get 3.2 and we will still be stuck on 3.0 here in Japan (

@whirleyes: So except for the Japanese input with the dock, everything else is working fine with prime 1.5?
If you find a way to get the Japanese input working, please let us know. I want to install prime so that I can get 3.1 of android, but I don't want to give up Japanese input..
Really wish they would hurry up with a stock update

Same here

I will wait a bit more, let's say 1 month...if nothing comes up I will root. It is really annoying because the 3.0.1 is pretty laggy and I know that the 3.1 is a REAL improvement for the transformer!
