[Download] Asus Transformer Prime TF201 Jelly Bean Update Now Rolling Out In Sweden

Asus Transformer Prime TF201 Jelly Bean Update

In late July, Asus has announced is Jelly Bean plans for the Transformer Prime, Transformer Pad Infinity and Transformer Pad 300 tablets. Later, the manufacturer has upgraded both the Infinity and Pad 300 tablets with Jelly bean build. A few hours ago, Asus has also started seeding the most awaited Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for the Transformer Prime tablet, starting with Sweden.

Announced on its Swedish Facebook page, Asus noted that the new firmware update will wipe out the Adobe Flash support from the Google Play Store and it will also remove Wi-Fi Direct support. Good news is that Asus has provided a link for the users to download the Flash player from Adobe website. Jelly Bean build brings Google Now, expandable & actionable notifications, automatically resizable widgets, a better HTML5 video experience with improved rendering speed, offline voice input, improved keyboard typing with better and more accurate predictive input and many more features.

Those who own the Transformer Prime TF201 tablet, will be forced to download the Jelly Bean OTA update. If you are yet to receive OTA notifications on your device, you can try to grab the update now by heading into Settings > System Firmware Update > Check Update. If you’ve unlocked your Prime TF201 tablet with the Asus bootloader unlock tool, you may need to wait until Asus provides full Jelly Bean firmware on its official website.

Unfortunately, it kills Wi-Fi Direct support on Prime, so you may want to stay on Ice Cream Sandwich build till Asus fixes it in the next firmware updates. There is no word on the international availability of the JB update for Transformer Prime tablets. We are also not sure when can we expect to see it on the TF101.
