    NO reboots since my hard reset- thinking this might have fixed it as I am past 48 hours now with no issues.

    TBH - I am glad I did it - I have a rule on PC's that I will not upgrade in place to a new version unless it is just a point release. I know we are supposed to be al "post-PC era" here but it seems to me that it makes sense to get a fresh start every year or so. Not saying this is an excuse for Asus - if they offer in place they need to support it - but for me the HR was just what the doctor ordered.

    Glad the HR worked for you. Didn't for me

    Me either. Doing the Factory Reset is a good practice, but it obviously has not worked for all of our devices. Meanwhile, ASUS has acknowledged that there is a problem with the ICS release, and said that they will provide an update to resolve it. I think we should all be encouraged by that.

    It is encouraging. I think I can give them two weeks to release a fix before I give in and root to get HC back.

    Update from my HR. Day 4. Everything is well and running well. Smoother nicier. Battery is awesome. 10% loss overnight or 12 hours, which in linear terms would last 4 days without charging, i.e. no gaming no browsing, just satdnby; and with wifi, alarm ON. No random reboot so far. So teh way I did the HR was to first back up my photos, docs etc in the SD. Do HR in the setting, and after reboot, install all my 100 apps from google server.
    I spoke too soon again. It happened again. Day 6 the reboot occured again. From 99% battery at 10pm last night down to 20% at 6.30 am today. I had to again do a hard reset.

    So after changing the WiFi sleep settings I ended up having a couple of infinite reboot loops, but over the last several days I have only had regular old reboots while idle a couple of times. Not sure what I may or may not have changed to get this result, but I figured I would throw the information out there to add it to the mix...

    I have not had any reboots in a few days now, since I uninstalled Plume.

    Huh - still no issues from mine since the HR - but after some of the other posts i feel like i am sitting on a ticking time bomb. Here's for hoping my luck sticks.

    Mine is still having random reboots and freezing during them. Never heard back about my ASUS support request beyond the initial "we received your message" auto reply.

    I have pretty much the same conditions, and also no response yet from ASUS since 2/28, but I'm not worrying about any of that anymore. They have acknowledged a problem, and said they are working on testing and releasing a fix, so I'm just in a wait and see mode, and keeping my TF on a charger or powered off whenever I expect to leave it idle for an extended period.

    If it goes past next week without an update, I will really be concerned.

    Question for all of you that have experienced problems since ICS upgrade --

    If you had just purchased your tab, would you wait to do the upgrade to ICS?

    Have there been any noticeable improvements to anything?

    TIA!

    ICS runs a little smoother and there are some UI improvements, that I enjoy. The downside is the bugs which have made ICS a nightmare. If you haven't updated yet, then wait for Asus to fix it first. The bugs were so bad that I went through the trouble of downgrading back to HC.

    Yes, I would wait. If ASUS' comes through with an update as promised, it should be just days, or at worst a week, or two before a clean update is distributed. They have always.been good with previous bug fixes.

    Yes, ICS is an improvement over HC, but not all that dramatic a change. I'm sticking with it mostly because I can use the Chrome beta browser, which I love, and also because I've never attempted a downgrade to the FW.

    For me, ICS is a dramatic change. I have lots of widgets on most of my home screens and ICS has completely eliminated the stuttering and slow response I experienced with HC ... it's smooth as silk now and kills the last (and only) "advantage" my iPad user friends liked to crow about.

    Also, the stock browser is MUCH faster (with no more white blocks while repainting), and there are dozens of little tweaks that make the user experience more pleasant.

    That said, I've experienced a few of the random "black screen" issues and one reboot that left my docked Transformer batteries dead. Haven't found a pattern yet (it's relatively rare), but once Asus gets around to issuing a fix, ICS will be pure creamy goodness

    Thanks for all of the replies! I just got my tab yesterday, so I'm still figuring everything out. (I upgraded from the ViewSonic gTablet.) I haven't run *any* updates yet, and based on everything I have read thus far and the experiences y'all shared I am definitely going to wait.

    Welcome to the community - you definitely took a big step up from the gtablet - and i think you are wise for waiting on the update. Even with HC this is a great device - it has served us all well for 6 months - and will work just fine a while longer.

    So how do you downgarde back to HC. I did my HR and when the TF reboot, it wnt backstraight into ICS. Anyway, I'm liking the ICS much better with the folder option, dication in polaris office (beter), app killer, smoother browsing. I am really counting on Asus to expedite the update / bug fix. I've beene xperienceing at least onec everyday random reboot. But the reboot just shuts down the tablet and no longer stuck before the home screeen. So it just dies off and no draining teh battery. Of course apps that are runnning liek alarm no longer works while it is off.

    1. root with ViperMod PrimeTime using option 1
    2. Install CWM recovery using Rom Manager
    3. Boot into recovery and install the official Asus zip file for V8.6.5.21
    4. Reboot holding volume down and choose change mode(select wipe data option)

    That's it, back to fresh install of HC

    My TF-101 is totally dead now. The ICS rebooting came back yesterday and this morning it got into a reboot loop where it would start up and reboot from the startup screen...after 4-5 times of this I held down the power button to try to get it to shut down and now it won't start up at all.

    Do you have it plugged in?

  22. hockeyhippie's Avatar
    Yeah, it's plugged in. Not sure what I did differently but it finally responded to the power button after an hour trying. I immediately forced a check for the firmware update and it's installing it now... whew! Hope that helps!

    Hey! It's 6:15pm on the US east coast and my EeePad just performed an update! I now have Build Number IML74K.US_epad-9.2.1.17-20123012. I don't know if that is a different number than the first ICS update but that's what I have now. I hope it fixes the problems!
