Install Jelly Bean For Your Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 Now

Posted on Sep 10 2012 - 1:26pm by Brad Ward

Just last month ASUS pushed out an update to their ASUS Transformer Pad TF300T to install Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The update added a lot of performance improvements and some really cool new features such as Google Now and its own accompanying features. This update obviously left owners of the higher-end ASUS Transformer PAD TF700 a little bit sad as us with the TF300T bragged about it all over the internet. Thanks to XDA forum members Mystic Mgcn though, he’s come to to the rescue by instructing users how to use the TF300’s firmware on the TF700. According to his How-To post he wrote up on the XDA forums, the only two things not working with this update are changes to screen brightness and changing the DPI, which is set to 160. Screen brightness is easily fixed by using third party apps, but there is currently no way or solution on how to deal with the DPI issue. Still, if you want Jelly Bean that bad, you can get it now by following his instructions.

MysticMgcn’s How-To includes both instructions and files for rooted or unrooted devices, locked or unlocked bootloaders, and stock or custom recoveries. If you are one of the may users out there that owns a Transformer Infinity TF700, you may be interested in heading over to the forum thread via the link in the source at the bottom of the page. You’ll be able to read up on everything and anything you need to do to get Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on your tablet. As always though, if anything goes awry you are entirely responsible for anything that goes on with your tablet if you so choose to attempt this and take this route.

Has anyone tried the update yet? Is it working well for you? Let us know in the comments below!

    The official Jelly Bean update should be along before too long, so I’m going to wait! I love my TF700 too much to risk messing it up or have a partially broken version.

    I totally agree. I just bought the Transformer Pad Mobile Dock for my T700 and quite honestly, given the monetary expense of the combined items, there is no way that I’m going to roll the dice with a firmware update originally provided for the lesser T300. Just the snob in me I guess. ;)
