Default Jellybean

Are we 101 users still on track to get jellybean at some point? I'm in two minds about trying to sell mine and pick up a newer tablet (Nexus 7 probably),but if it's going to land on my 101 then I might as well hold off for a bit longer.

It's rolling out to the newer tabs at the moment and I seem to remember Asus saying they'd get it first, then we'd get it eventually. I've not heard we're not on course to receive anyway.

I'm in the same boat, I was planning to sell once I got back from the latest RMA, but after using it again, I enjoy the KB and I'm looking forward to what JB will bring.

Honestly, even though Asus doesn't have to update, if they are thinking like smart company they will want to keep customers on an upgrade cycle for long term growth. That cycle is about 24 months for this type of hardware. So not providing relevant updates during that period is just going to hurt them in the long run. I for one probably wouldn't stay with a company that abandons updates after only one year.

My wife has a transformer 101 running ics, and i have just purchased a nexus 7 running jelly bean, which is great. But jelly bean does not support Flash, and adobe has dropped the ball on flash for tablets. There is supposed to be a work around using Fire fox, but i cannot find flash for android anywhere to down load and patch it in. So be cautious on what you wish for.

You can side load Adobe, and use Xscope Pro browser (works better than Firefox

Adobe Flash Player 11.1 (Sideload this)

Dolphin Browser HD 8.5.1 (Last version to support Flash. A little slow, but works well - Once installed, DO NOT UPDATE Dolphin HD from the Play Store or you WILL lose Flash support (in Dolphin, that is))

Firefox Aurora (Tested extensively with Flash, sorta slow and crashes randomly (not even flash related), but works well)

xScope Browser Pro (Tested extensively with Flash, works great- Fastest/Smoothest video playback)

Boat Browser (Tested extensively with Flash, works great)

Smart SWF Player Pro (Plays any .SWF file perfectly - I use this to play Cargo Bridge )

And, this one requires root, but is BY FAR the best option:
How to install AOSP Browser on the N7 [w/o flashing] (Easy to install, BLAZING fast, rarely crashes, plays Flash *flawlessly* - You still get bookmark sync with Chrome, so keep it installed and use the Chrome bookmarks widget, but the steps involved in making it work requires removing the AOSP browser's ability to sync bookmarks)

From this thread in the Nexus 7 section.

By dropped the ball do you mean, publicly announced they would no longer support mobile devices?
