    Sounds like the update did not complete and something errored during the process. I would contact support.

    I updated two days ago. No reboots since then (I was having them daily before the update). I'll repost if the problem returns.

    i dont get it... i have not had one single issue with my tablet, and i use it daily... not a single reboot.

    i had the stock rooted ICS on mines.. was able to flash the update on XDA for the US.... worked fine. even tho the tablet granted superuser rights to adfree, OTA voodoo rootkeeper said i lost root, but restoring it made it all fine.

    all good here, Stock Rooted ICS 3/13 version here with 0 issues

    I've had no random reboots during sleep since I update my tablet on the 13th. I also did toggled the "stay away" item under developers option, so it may be a combination of both or one.

    been following the thread with interest. i have out of the box transformer no rooting etc. yet mine won't update ota. That tells me it must have been pulled (yeah i can still download from the site). if pulled they must recognise there's a big problem.

    Just got the reboot issue. Looks like the update did not fix the issue.

    Just installed it yesterday, no reboots so far. Keeping fingers crossed. Overall speed seems better and the camera app does not crash any more when switching between front and main camera. But still no face unlock or gmail preview.

    I think ASUS doesn't want to deal with face unlock problems- so it won't be a Transformer feature.

    Ok so left the TF on, attached to the keyboard and plugged it in last night- this morning it was stuck on the bootup screen. Sigh.

    This appears to be an ICS issue as it is affecting other ICS tablets as well.

    Same thing happens to me once in a while, but no keyboard. Not happening much though, just once in a while.

    Most certainly is not fixed

    Installed it last night and found my TF dead as dodo this evening when I got home. Took several long presses of the power button to get it going again

    Not happy
