Asus Rolls Out New Firmware to Fix Reboot Issue in Transformer Prime

Paul Lilly

After denying a U.K. retailer's claims that there are problems with the Transformer Prime tablet, Asus today confirmed the existence of a "random reboot problem" and has begun rolling out an over the air (OTA) firmware fix. The new firmware isn't showing up online, but if you head over to Settings > About Tablet > System Firmware Update, you can grab the latest build, which is version

"New FOTA update is rolling out for the #TF201 Prime. Fixes the random reboot problem. Have you got yours yet?," @AsusUK posted to Twitter today .

U.K. vendor Clove said it was pulling its stock of Transformer Prime tablets after supposedly discovering an undisclosed mystery issue via internal testing. Asus was quick to release a statement saying it isn't away of any quality issues with the Transformer Prime, and then later told The Inquirer that Clove only received a single unit, suggesting its claims of "thorough testing" were hogwash.

Clove, meanwhile, told The Inquirer it received a "reasonable stock allocation" and said the main factors that drew red flags during testing were related to Wi-Fi and GPS. There was no mention of random reboots.
