Hey ppl,

I got the update but after finished downloading an error appeared: Update failed, restoring conf to last version blah blah.

I rebooted the device but it says there's no longer an update available for my device.

My Tf300t is Rooted, i only disabled some system apps and removed the original Browser, could that be the problem?

Any ideas? Thanks!

if you removed any system apps it won't update. Also if you are using a modded build.prop it won't update. You need to restore the browser

Thanks for your reply jgaf.

It seems you're right, since I unrooted with Voodoo OTA Root Keeper, but still can't get the update.

How can I restore original apps (only Browser as far as I remember) without a factory reset?

Thanks!

I don't think you can, unless you made a backup of the stock browser using Titanium Backup or something.

That's why you should never fully delete system apps, always make a backup of them or freeze them.

On the topic of root access.. updated my TF300T to Jelly Bean... tried restoring root using Voodoo OTA Root Keeper. It says restored but I don't appear to have root access when using Lucky Patcher or any other app. Any ideas?

I am in the same boat as you are...thankfully I froze my apps so I have them still...but after unfreezing them I still don't get the OTA.... I heard once you download it once Asus won't push it to your device again...so manual update is the only way

You need that someone still on ics pulls the browser apk from /system/app the you will have to push it to the same directory and reboot. That should reinstall it. NOTE factory reset wont restore deleted apps.

Since only US Firmware are getting updated you won't get the update even though you are in the US.
