Yup indeed, so there is no real use anymore from getting official Asus updates after unlocking it, since custom roms will most likely include the updates taken from the official Asus/Google source code.

Nice! Thanks to everyone who signed the petition. Don't know if it helped or not but it couldn't have hurt.

I wonder you'll be able to install the updates from their website?

What I think what would happen when you try to install an official update from Asus on an unlocked tablet, is that you likely get an error message that the device is not suitable to install the update.

But try it and find out.. ;)

Wow. I can't wait to use this. Unfortunately, due to hardware problems with my first two tablets, I think I'll wait a couple weeks to make sure this new one isn't defective. That should give devs some time to get some ROMs and a recovery going on this thing.

That is, the auto-update functionality will normally be disabled by the Custom-ROM designers in case of changes that could brick your device.

Think of it like a car with a locked engine room, and the "Audi"-factory has the key:

By unlocking the engine room, you can start replacing anything you'd like. If you then apply major changes, there are no guarantee that OEM-parts will function directly in your customized engine. You can however replace everything back to stock, and will then again be able to apply OEM-parts to update your engine.

    Delete google account

    Hi everyone,

    I know it's an old post but I hope this will help someone who have the same problem.
    I add the same problem than you : my google password was always incorrect, even after registrating my TF300T. And finally, I found a solution : I deleted my Google account from my tablet and retry to unlock the bootloader ; it asked me if I wanted to unlock my device without a google account and I confirm. It worked !

    So how do you get the updates then?

    Sent from my VS910 4G using xda premium
    Well, I guess from Asus you don't. I assume Asus thinks that people who unlock there tablet are gonna install a custom ROM on it and are thus not in need of official updates..
