    Just got my Asus tab and it came with 3.0.1, I know that 3.1 is available for this tab but when I click on the update button it says there is no update, what am I missing?

    thanks

    Some Transformers don't seem to be registering that an update is available and I haven't seen a reasonable explaination for it yet. That being said, the 3.1 update is on the Asus website (the link is in Phil's Transformer sticky: http://forums.androidcentral.com/asu...-software.html) - thanks, Phil. Just download and manually install (instructions for that are in the thread "I just got my Asus EeePad Transformer and I have a few words." on page 6 or thereabouts - #s 55 & 57). If you have the dock, make sure it is attached and it should then notify you of a dock update - if applicable).

    Thank you for the reply, do I need an external MicroSD card for the manual update?

    You shouldn't, it should be in the root directory - ie where you only see the \ - if you are using Astro, Root Explorer, or whatever, file manager. Don't unzip or rename the .zip file. Give it a try - it's pretty straightforward and will only take a few minutes (although the instructions say it make up to 10 minutes, it usually doesn't).

    Thanks for finding this and posting the link. This is a new procedure. ASUS must have realized that some people are having problems with the automatic updates and made some changes to make the manual upload a little easier. My hat is off to ASUS - while there still seem to be some issues with the Transformer (but what tablet is perfect?), ASUS seems to be very proactive in dealing with these problems and concerned about the company's users. Thank you ASUS!

    So did I. New update looks good, so far. Maybe ASUS quit pushing the original 3.1 update because this new one was imminent...

    I got the new (20110711 build) update this morning as well. I like that this makes the tablet seem a bit faster zipping through homescreens. Hopefully this is the precursor to the "we're testing it now!" real update (to Honeycomb 3.2).
