Hi guys,as you may know,if you unlocked your bootloader you won't be able to receive OTA's anymore so you have to wait for Asus to upload the firmware on their site.Or even better you can use your custom recovery to flash a modified OTA pack wich will update your device just fine.

Warning:
** I'm NOT responsible for any damage caused to your device by using these files so use them on your OWN risk.
** This update will also flash the Jelly Bean bootloader so if you are still on .26 bootloader and you didn't used the NvFlash tool yet,well,it's time to do it because after installing this update there's NO WAY to go back,yet.
** You Custom Recovery will be replaced by the Stock Recovery (You can install this CWM Recovery after installing JB)
** I only tested with TWRP but it should work with CWM recovery too
** Verify your MD5 checsum after download


Requirements

* Your device must be unlocked and rooted
* You need to be on STOCK 9.4.5.30 ROM with no modifications to system files (build.prop,etc) (no need to do the Factory Reset)
* Use OTA RootKeeper before installing this update if you want to keep ROOT

Installation

1) Download the file for your specific SKU
2) Move the downloaded file on your internal or external storage
3) Boot your device in Recovery
4) Install the update / That's it,wait for the install proccess to finish


NOTE: If you are getting errors and you are using CWM recovery try renaming the file (i.e TF700T WW_10.4.4.16-20120927 OTA.zip - - > TF700T_ WW_10.4.4.16-20120927.zip)

Download Links

WW_SKU --- > TF700T WW_10.4.4.16-20120927 OTA.zip ----- MD5 checksum: 9d4e1e91a08254256357eb2870d2df7d

US_SKU --- > TF700T US_10.4.4.16-20120927 OTA.zip ----- MD5 checksum: 4131cab5458153856185c43e05b67ebe

May I ask why we need to be on stock prior to flashing?

i think because this is not a complete rom. Its an update package. So if you gonna flash an official update over a custum rom your asking for trouble

Because the update will fail to install if some system files are missing or beeing modified.Please don't try this on custom firmware,but if you do,just don't complain about it in case is failing or even worse.
