Those of you carrying around the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity, it’s time to hit that update button! ASUS is rolling out another update for the tablet, bumping the software up to version 10.4.4.20. Android is still at 4.1.1, but that’s to be expected, considering the fact that 4.2 hasn’t even hit Google’s own Nexus 7 tablet yet.
For those keeping track, the WiFi version number has been bumped up to 188.8.131.52 (formerly 184.108.40.206) and Bluetooth to 10.33 (formerly 10.31). The kernel appears new, although it has the same version number (3.1.10).
The official changelog from ASUS lists these enhancements:
- Fine-tune Wi-Fi Direct connection behavior.

- Fix the issue that, during HDMI output, the output screen will get cropped after user chooses “HDMI” item in “Settings.”
- Fix the issue that there will be no items in HDMI setting page when output via HDMI Fix the issue that the screen may flicker when rotate the pad after adjust brightness bar in “Settings.”
