Transformer Prime happens to be among the very few tablets that are in-built with NVIDIA Tegra 3 Kal-Ei processor and was supposed to come with Android 4.0 as told at the announcement. However to everyone’s disappointment,  it was shipped in with the older Android 3.2 otherwise known as Honeycomb operating system. US representatives of Asus have given their confirmation that the Ice Cream Sandwich update for Transformer Prime TF201 is on its way and has already been rolled out to the users.

Pre-Requisites:

Backup all the user data present in your tablet since chances of data loss or corruption are there. Having a backup will help you replace the lost data if any damage occurs. Follow the link posted below to backup and restore all your data easily.

Pre Upgrade Instructions for Rooting and Firmware Update

Steps to Update Transformer Prime TF201 via OTA:

This new ICS update brings in a number of improvements and fixes a variety of bugs. But Asus was silent on what type of bugs and issues would this update fix. It is pretty clear that it will primarily fix  issues related to Wi-Fi unable to connect and on screen graphics errors.

Check via Manual Update:

In case you do not receive any updation notification from Asus then, you can manually check whether any updates are available to you or not anytime from your phone. Navigate to your device’s home screen and click on Menu > Settings > About Phone > System Update then finally tap on Update. You must possess an active internet connection in your handset to proceed with the OTA update. We recommend users to update it via Wi-Fi and not to use their carrier data plans. When you are ready, tap on Update Android and all your updates will be installed automatically. You just have to follow the on screen instructions.

Thus you can easily update your Asus Transformer Prime TF201 tablet with the official Android 4.0 firmware by following the steps mentioned above carefully.
