The Asus Eee Pad Transformer (the original tablet, the Transformer Prime‘s predecessor) has just received a software update. And it isn’t going to make your tablet run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, sadly. But if you own a Transformer, you really shouldn’t lose hope. That’s because so far Asus has been the best when it comes to Android tablet OS updates, so there’s no reason to think that the original Transformer won’t be the first (or second, if its successor has a say in this) tablet to be updated to ICS. Perhaps all that’s needed here is a little bit more patience.
Back to the update. It’s a minor affair, containing bug fixes and various performance enhancements. After you apply it, your tablet will be on software version 22.214.171.124, and Android version 3.2.1.
If you have root access on your Transformer, it’s best to refrain from updating until your favorite developers verify that you won’t loose root by doing so.
The update naturally is of the over-the-air variety – no computer needed to download and install it. If you manually check for updates, it should be there waiting for you even if your tablet hasn’t yet notified you that it’s available.
