Twice now in the last 40 minutes since updating to ICS my screen has locked up in a browser and in a game and then restarted itself..... anyone else?


- Short and sweet so you don't have to read through 30 pages.

- If your Prime has this problem either
A.) Return to store for refund or exchange and pray you get a newer unit without the different hardware/firmware version
B.) Call ASUS RMA it and pray they can finally get something right.
C.) Sit on your hands while you wait to see if ASUS can somehow figure out a magical firmware patch that will play nice with both older and newer Primes..... all the while getting frustrated with a prime that can be used as a paper weight.

I recommend A I found a new prime from HHGregg and it works just fine and I am finally happy again but still pissed at ASUS for this huge quality control blunder.

update 1/31

here is exactly the reason you do not want to rma to Asus.

Mine is locking up non stop. I can't even boot to the home screen most of the time. And when it does it'll lock up after a bit and go into more boot loops

I can say that my TP is also restarting over and over again. I can't get anything done. Just got it in the mail today. Haven't touched it besides firmware updates.

Mine has been stable. The only FC I got was on engadget on their live feed from the nvidia presentation. Reopened the browser and everything was fine (including the engadget page).

I have been in both gmail and exchange, world of goo, tapatalk, newsrob, reddita, etc... with no problems.

Constant locking and rebooting here. Never rooted.

I've done the factory wipe twice. Still doing it.

This time I wiped and didnt sync with my Google account in case its some data thats being restored thats causing it.

Ive had no problems until the update

I updated to ICS last night and it rebooted at least 6 times in 1 hour. Couldn't take it anymore. I've only had the tablet for a week with no issues before update..Hope Asus didn't release a bad update...that would suck.
Thinking about doing a full data wipe and factory reset. Has anyone already tried this?

Just did it again with no apps loaded or anything. Every 20 minutes or so

I loved this tablet until now. I'm so frustrated
