    Why is Jelly Bean taking an eternity to appear on the TF201? Are their specific hardware issues?

    My guess is that the Prime won't get it anytime soon and I'm not sure if it's necessarily up to Asus but it's google making that decision of when we get JB

    I am pretty sure it is actually Asus making that decision. Google releases JB to the manufacturers and then they do their thing with it i.e. customization, drivers, etc. Asus is probably holding back the Prime upgrade to concentrate on newer hardware with JB. They want us to buy a new tablet with JB rather than keep our older one that already received an upgrade to ICS. No money in it for them to upgrade us.

    Yea, this topic is the nature of every phone and tablet. Will we or won't we receive the update, I guess that's why rooting makes these type of conversations pointless;)

    That is entirely incorrect. Asus has already stated that the Prime WILL get JB, and that the Prime will be the next device that they will release the update for. On top of that, since Android is open-source software, Google has almost no say whatsoever in when companies release software updates. The make the code available to the general public, and then companies can do as they wish with it.

    Also, to the OP: settle down. It's only been two months since JB was even announced. Things take time, and two months is hardly an eternity.

    Asus is in a bit of a bind here. So far they have released several firmware updates for the TF201 that have been a bit rushed and buggy, so they are apparently trying to be thorough with this update, which is taking a while (but not that long, by the way; there are only three or four devices in the world at this point that are running JB officially) and people are getting impatient. Personally, I would rather have them take an extra month to totally test out and polish the update before they send it out.

    Also, as I have mentioned a dozen times before, if you really cared that much about getting Jelly Bean on your Prime, you could have done it almost two months ago. There are a number of AOSP-based JB ROMs available for the Prime. Personally, I use Baked Black Bean, and it's fantastic for the most part.

    Android isn't for everybody. If you are that worried about being able to upgrade immediately, then maybe you should buy an iPad and pay $100 more for 50% of the functionality.

    I bought my TF201 in the US, but living in Ireland. So will I receive it on the US timeframe or European / Ireland timeframe?

    yay for initial rollout of this. So looking forward to project butter.

    my question is though, when the 4.1 update is applied will the stock browser be removed completely?

    for me that streams videos through video players such as gorilla vid and novamov its the browser most likely to work with flash most of the time.

    can anyone comment on how 4.1 works with other browsers in this case with flash on any streaming players like this?

    Just want to let everyone know that the 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update is now live in the US. I just checked for the update not even 6 hours ago and was not available. However, it is now. I just received it here in Texas.

    I'm really enjoying it! Having fun playing around with Google Now and voice search. Very cool app.

    EDIT: I just thought I add that long pressing the home button no longer takes screen shots. Now when you long press the home button, it opens Google Now. To take screenshots you have to long press the Recent Apps button.

    Here's proof of the update:

    nice one, going to be downloading this when I get in if its available in the UK.

    If anyone can confirm its out in the UK I will be grateful.

    Also how is project butter working on the prime? much of an improvement?

    It's a huge improvement over ICS. All of my apps open instantly. They also threw in some nice window animations for opening and closing apps.

    nice really can't wait, just one more question does this actually remove flash completely? or is it just the stock browser that takes the hit.

    Install failed here. Wish I knew what the problem is.
    My Prime has been the most unstable computer I have ever owned.......in a very long list. Was hoping JB would give me some help.
