So I've heard a lot of people reported that after the Jelly Bean update their devices got a lot of problems (like constantly reboot, can't connect wifi,...) some even want to go back to ICS.

So please list your issues here that you notice AFTER the update and DID NOT notice when you were in ICS :D. This will hep other people make their decisions on weather update or not.

Only thing I've noticed that might be considered as a bug is that, now when I connect to dock and move the cursor around the launcher, the cursor has less framerate...

Rear camera

Hello!
My first experience with JB, was that my "rear" camera became messed up. The camera itself seemed to work (focus, zoom, shooting etc.). When saving/rendering, however, every 2-3 images became solid green or what looked like "double exposed" with distorted colours. I shot some pictures only a few days before the rollout, and the pictures were just fine. The front camera was OK.

After having read a few threads about tips on how to do a FW upgrade in general, I ended up doing a factory reset. After that the camera now seems to work fine; I have shot about 15-20 images without issues.

Another detail when it comes to the camera; the nice, little shutter animation is gone under JB.

I am on the WW-version (Sweden), stock ROM, no ROOT - so nothing strange. I got JB OTA friday 2012-08-24.

Random reboots here, even led me to factory reset just in case, but n this morning it has happened again, seems to be connected to when the screen sleeps but really cant tell.

Not a HUGE issue but somewhat annoying. Still better than ICS

Same problem with mine. It has started doing a reboot and sometimes even a "sleep of death", where it won't turn on after it's gone to sleep and I have to hold the power button in for some time. I had no problems before JB.

At first I had a boot-loop causes by EZoverclock,.. so make sure before you update to unintstall ezoverclock.

After factory reset (I know now that it was possible to uninstall ezoverclock during boot-loop:silly:), cold booted...
i reinstalled my apps, and found that MX-Player doens´t support hardware decoding with 1080p MKV files anymore! (Worked with ICS!)
I can only selected the software rendering. Going to try other players now, but hardware decoding seems a problem with JB.

I also can´t get Nova Launcher to work. Not with normal installation(error -24 during installation) and also not as a system app.(app crashes)

anyone else with same problems ?

I've had a few application crashes that whilst I can't say is because of JB, I don't think they happened (or as often) with ICS.

Here the same issue,
when i am using sleep timeout (30s, 1m, 2m, 5m). But only when i connect the keyboard!

When the keyboard is not connected the screen times out just fine.
When the keyboard is connected, I use sleep never... for now.

Same Issue with mine ... :(
As I use the device in a learning environment I prefer it to sleep now and again, preventing battery drain. It seems I cannot use that for now.

I have sent technical request to Asus. Awaiting their response.

try under Asus setting 'mobile dock power saving mode' and see if that changes anything.

I think if it is not checked, then the tablet will stay awake if on the dock and not closed.

(General statement)

Baffles me why any one who is rooted would try to force the OTA. Just be patient. You'll get an update via ROM.

For those who didn't wait and are now complaining about the end result, you should have read up on what an OTA could do to your device and waited.

no issues at all. It's been rich solid for me and way better than ICS. Current up time is going on 132 hours (prior to that it was like 7 days and I only had to "reboot"cause the stinking battery died) with pretty much constant use. I keep it on performance mode 24/7 and its fast fast fast (although I do notice it is slower than my Samsung Galaxy S3 which is running CM10 and overclocked). Practically everyone that touches it comments on how fast it is...

The answer from ASUS
Thank you for your email.

From your email I understand that the Eeepad isn’t working correctly after the update. This is very inconvenient and shouldn’t be the case.

i advise you to reset the Eeepad and to check the firmware if there is another new update.

You can reset the Eeepad by switching the device off. Once the device has been shut off, you push the volume minus button and the power button at the same time. As soon as you see something appear in the screen, you push the volume plus. This will reset your device. Please back up your data first, because a reset will remove all data which you have installed yourself.

After this, you can update the firmware. You can update the firmware via: Settings --> About tablet --> Firmware update.

If the solutions which are written above didn’t solve the problem, please contact us again.


I don't think this solves the issue, as I can not see any new firmware when I check now. Then again I am doubting whether a factory reset will solve it. Anybody tried a factory reset after the JB upgrade ?

Applied the blob from the website. Guys, is it just me or the sound volume is now much much lower? I'm talking especially about headphones, I have to raise the volume much higher to get the same sound as on ICS.

    Upgraded to JB last week and I very much regret it, on its own it runs more or less the same as ICS, much of the new features of JB ASUS has not even put in the JB update and the UI is basicly the same besides the animations which aren't "buttery smooth" as can be, it is ok when used as just a tablet but when using the dock its laggy for me, more so then ICS, when using HDMI its really bad, every few seconds when moving the mouse I get a freeze which is driving me nuts, I get strange artafects on the screen when specific menu styles are opened, and browsing on it with HDMI and mouse and keyboard is a pain! I mean its like using a single core pentium 3 (which would prob work better), I can't use it on my monitor for internet, its so slow, for watching movies its ok all around but on ICS it was much better,
    I even did a full wipe of the whole tablet using the ASUS wipe menu on boot which wipes the sdcard as well and it only helped a tiny bit, still pretty laggy and slow though

    the biggest most annoying thing that ASUS did was the new bootloader, I understood the risk of unlocking and losing my warrenty and accepted it, so why punish me more by preventing me to downgrade (using signature matching) and preventing me from using other roms not based on stock (although this may be a kernel issue), its so annoying!

    I own a galaxy s2 and I must say samsung are much more easy going, never had to unlock the bootloader and I can downgrade or upgrade stock as I please to any version in any region, I hope someone fixes this soon so I can downgrade, no JB for me until ASUS release a decent less buggy version

    How they managed to make it so much worse and annoying beggars belief.

    I had a sony ericsson x10 mini pro, a nexus s, a galaxy s2, ive upgraded, rooted, "romed" the s**t out of them. This is by far the worst upgrade ive experienced on a device.

    The reason it is so noticeable is because on ICS it was sooooo much better.

    I've been contacting Asus about issues but they keep suggesting RMA

    RMA? But most of the problems are software related not hardware

    I may have found a temporary solution to the laggy preformance of JB and universal SD-CARD read write issues

    this is what I did:

    1. installed the latest 'Hydro-JB' ROM (which is great I must say, no bloatware) LINK

    2. Downloaded SD-Booster from the play store (link)
    Installed and set to the maximum cache rate

    3. downloaded swapper2 from play store (link)
    Set it up (replaces swap with a more optimum version on sd-card)

    4. Changed CPU governer to 'preformance' (will take more juice out of your battery!)
    Changed other CPU setting from whatever it was to NOOP

    5. turned off JB animations and transitions (developer menu)

    6. set the CPU preset under ASUS to performance (instead of the default 'balanced')

    ran a benchmark test using antutu and get just under the galaxy S3 and over the transformer prime (keep in mind, no overclocking, as there is no ezoverclcok tool for JB yet)

    ran sd-card speed test and got 12MB/s with almost no delay during the whole 300MB write and read process, before the tweaks the sd-card test would get about 9.5MB with it pausing to cache every few seconds, this time it only did it for about 1sec maybe twice

    browsing using dolphin browser seems much smoother with less lags, in fact the whole browsing the tablet seems much better, shame I had to do all this work to get it to work like it should.

    things left to test that had issues:
    HDMI out with dock + external keyboard and mouse (this was a major issue before, couldn't move the mouse much without it lagging)
    Downloading a file on usenet or some other download tool and trying to multi task while doing it (an issue even in ICS, not sure if this will help or not)

    but in closing I recommend everyone to follow the steps above if your having issues with the new stock JB

    (note: you must be unlocked and rooted to use it with the Hydro rom, or at least rooted to use the other steps in this post)
