In an interesting turn of events, ASUS has removed the latest OTA update for the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity (126.96.36.199) from its website. This means that some users who have been unable to download OTA updates directly onto their tablets have no way to upgrade to the latest firmware. This also implies that ASUS might have found a serious issue with this update that is causing the company to temporarily pull it.
Interestingly enough, unlike many past OTA updates from different manufacturers, there have not been any widespread reports of abnormalities or bugs with this update. To the contrary, users have been reporting better benchmark scores, smoother web browsing, and less force closes. Overall, users have been happy with this update, including me – I can definitely vouch for the fact that 188.8.131.52 seemed to be a decent step up for the tablet.
Hopefully, we’ll know more soon as to why ASUS pulled the update. But in the meantime, if you were able to get it on your Infinity, let us know if you’re experiencing any major issues.
