The Asus Transformer Prime is now getting another firmware update and reports are suggesting that Wi-Fi is working much better. The new software update brings a new build version number IM74K.US_epad-184.108.40.206-20120203. Back in mid-January, Asus rolled out the software update 9.4.211 to fix the GPS issues. The new update 220.127.116.11 bumps the Wi-Fi software version from v18.104.22.168 to v6.1.18. It looks like the update is a relatively major one and the changes that are coming along with the new software update 22.214.171.124 for Asus Transformer Prime are:
# GPS – v6.9.13
# Wi-Fi: v126.96.36.199
# Bluetooth: v9.26
# Kernel: 188.8.131.52-00001-g034d325android@MiuMiu #1
# Build: IML74K.US_epad-184.108.40.206-20120203
This update is also carrying fixes for screen flickering, app crashing issues and random reboots. But, the YouTube app is still crashing, though you can go to YouTube through the browser. Keep in mind that the real issue here is that the update breaks root.
The OTA update is in the process of being pushed to users and should make its way to all users. If you’re a Asus Transformer Prime owner and feeling impatient, you could check it manually by heading into Settings –> About Tablet –> System Firmware Update and then press the Check for Updates button –> If the update found –> Accept it to download and install –> Follow the on-screen instructions and let it to do its task.
