    Here is the 3.1 update.zip for the Transformer.

    File removed per ASUS' request - Phil


    To flash,

    1. Extract EP101_SDUPDATE.zip from the above .tar file
    2. Place it on your SD card
    3. Make sure the Transformer is plugged in or has at least a 50% battery charge.
    4. Power off
    5. Press the volume down key and power key at the same time and continue to depress both until you notice a ROM Boot screen that advises you to press the volume up key within 5 seconds to start the ROM update process.
    6. Press the volume up key and the unit will update and reboot. It should take about 3~5 minutes
    7. After a reboot, a user notification should arrive in five minutes or so that the docking station has a firmware update available to version 0209. Please follow the instructions and update the docking station and then complete another reboot. The 0209 firmware offers improved typing speeds, mouse tracking and USB compatibility.


    Enjoy.

    Yes, this is a leak of the Official OTA. Don't flash this if you are rooted.

    Edit: Ignore this.. some reason it decided to wipe my data and reflash 3.01... checking now

    Any chance that you have an MD5 Hash for this file? I'd hate to accidentally brick my Transformer.

    Ok so:

    The available time for upgrade is really short. how it works is you follow the instructions above, but when the upgrade screen appears you have 5 seconds to hold down the Volume up.

    If you delay too long, it will skip past this part and offer to do a factory reset for you and this will NOT install the update.. that's what I did the first time

    The good news is, if you hit the update on time, it WILL NOT wipe your data. Still trying to test it out.

    Do I have to place this on a SD card or can I just put it on the internal storage?

    worked for me too! One thing though - can't resize asus widgets - wonder if this isn't an eariler version. Can only resize gmail widget and google widgets.

    You'll need to put it on an SD card. When the device reboots it won't have access to the internet. And remember, you're sideloading the update, so you can't use the normal "install from internal memory option."

    The update is pretty small. a 1 gig card would do. I used my old 2gb from my old feature phone.

    On MicroSDHC
    mkdir ASUS
    mkdir Update
    ren decompressed .zip from tarball to US_epad-user-8.4.4.5.zip
    insert MicroSDHC in TF101
    Look for alert showing system update detected.
    Done!

    No hard resets, or system bootloader tricks. Just Update from Honeycomb
    Of course make sure you are at 50% still.

    im also on the ww-firmware. if you put a folder on MicroSD named ASUS and inside another one Named Update and put the update in with the following name: WW_epad-user-8.4.4.5.zip - then remove the microsd card and put it back in your tablet -> your tablet will recognize it and show the exclamation mark. but i'm too scared ^^

    if you wanna try, just let me know

    Just uploaded an untarred EP101_SDUPDATE.zip file to a mirror: File removed per ASUS' request - Phil

    Will save you some time having to untar it - not sure why it was tarred in the first place.
