    Just got a firmware update downloading, will report back soon. Though it seems to be large. I think its jellybean.

    Edit: Confirmed to be jellybean. Installing now!

    Second Edit: Installed successfully and ota rootkeeper restored root without any problems. Whole process took about 20 minutes.

    I have to say, after about an hour, it feels much snappier. Most of the lag that was in the ICS version is gone.

    Curious if the Netflix app is still super laggy or not.

    It's a little better once images are loaded. But while loading images for the shows/movies it is still extremely laggy and freezes a lot.

    Installed and putting it through it's paces now. So far the Stock Browser is faster to load the entire page and feels like it browses faster.

    Netflix is still frustratingly slow to load but I wonder if that will change if they optimize it for JB.

    Yep, just got the JB update over here in Thailand. Update went without issue.

    It's a bit late now, will try it out tomorrow.

    I've got it to in the UK.

    To be honest, I'm not seeing much improvement with lag. That could be because I didn't see much in the first place. Coming from an original Samsung Galaxy Tab (stuck with Froyo), the Infinity was a massive improvement anyway.

    Installing JB in Dallas right now. Upgraded home Wi-Fi last Friday to 58 Mbps down and 38 Mbps up. Life is good!

    I can't get mine to find the update when told to search for it. Any suggestions?

    just downloaded and went to install, goes to a black screen(screen on with nothing on it.) Went to bootloader and clicked wipe data, and i think it was Jelly Bean that started but then it just shut off on me and went to the black screen again. anyone else have the issue and/or know how to fix it?

    JB is faster and smoother than ICS. The new browser meant new passwords on all my bookmarked websites and ICS Browser+ is now dead. So are video sites using Flash, like PBS TV. There is supposedly a way to sideload and install Flash on JB. I'll have to research that. Face unlock works better, even with blinking. Google's "Search Now" is pretty slick, and so are the expandable notifications.

    Bottom line: JB is a definite upgrade.

    I downloaded JB too. There are some improvements but still see lag everyonce in a while. My Nexus S4 G has the same issue. JB on my phone is nothing to brag about for sure but it seems to work better on my tablet.

    Just upgraded to JB. Everything works fine except camera and gallery. Anyone else facing this issue? Any idea what could be possible reason?

    Mmmm...PB-JB sandwich is yummier than the Ice Cream Sandwich! Somethings still lag, but definitely smoother overall. Quadrant's I/O score still well below TF201's.

    I gotta be honest,

    I don't see a whole lot of improvement with the JB update. Not that I had much to complain about before. My infinity actually ran great before the update, and still runs great after. But I don't see a huge difference. Not looking forward to no flash, but I'm sure there will be a work around. I am excited about Google Now though.

    What other differences should I be looking for with Jelly Bean?

    Before taking the update, I copied the file from the cache folder. So, if you still can't get the update, and you have the US version (US version only!!!) then I have the update file:

    Again, this is the US Version!!!

    Just got my update yesterday, took about 15-20 minutes. Did one cold boot about half an hour after it finished. First impressions are that the tablet has continued to improve, even more than it did with the firmware updates. Everything is zippy and smooth with very little lag, but I haven't yet had time to test all my apps. Enjoyed playing around with Google Now. Siri, watch your back! :)
