Android 4.2.1 ROM available for Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T

by: Kristofer WoukDecember 16, 2012


In the past, Asus has been pretty good about providing updates for the Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T, but if you can’t wait to get Android 4.2, there is a solution.

An intrepid user over at XDA Developers has released an Android 4.2 Jelly Bean ROM for the Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T, going so far as to rewrite the audio code from scratch to get it to work. This ROM, based on the official Android Open Source Project code base, has been around for a while now, but everything isn’t fully functional yet. Most major functionality is solid, but the GPS and camera are not yet working.

Assuming you’ve already rooted your TF700T and installed a custom recovery, the process is very straightforward. If you haven’t, you may be glad to know that we have a guide available that will show you exactly how to do that very thing. It isn’t a particularly difficult process, but be cautious and read the instructions very carefully to ensure you do everything correctly.

For the files you’ll need to download and instructions on how to flash the ROM, hit the source links below.

Have you tried Jelly Bean 4.2 on your Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T yet?

    Still not sure if I’m sold on ASUS or not. I believe they put out some decent hardware, but I heard a lot of bust stories from then hardware of the Nexus 7. We’ll see. Android still beats iOS, in my opinion.

      I’ve got a tf700t myself and it’s rather unreliable. When it works it’s great, which is most of the time, but at least once a week (or once a day if you use it a lot) it will freeze and if you’re lucky reboot itself after a few minutes. Often it just go blank and nothing will make it come on again, not even the little reset button you can push with a pin. You then have to wait until it runs out of battery, charge it again and do several rain dances before it will come back to life again. How long it stays on is directly proportional to how long you dance.

        Mine freezes every time I turn it on and only unfreezes when I start it up again. I would not buy any ASUS product again. My son is an aerospace engineer and told us ASUS was the best. Now he feels bad. We added a internet boost just for our tablets, but they still freeze. And I cannot play Bejeweled Blitz for Facebook yet, even though Popcap and ASUS told me they are working on it and be patient over 2 1/4 years ago.

      I have had my TF700T since Sept 2012 and I have had no issues with it at all. It runs like a champ. No lockup, no lag, and I use it daily for surfing, email, games, and anything else you can think of. It runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I like it so much I just got the keyboard dock 2 days ago and that just adds to my love for the tablet. I would be happy with a Galaxy tablet (the phones kick ass though) or any other tablet that is available because nothing out there has the resolution nor raw power. I would not even try to compare the Nexus to the Infinity as the Nexus is a budget tablet and does not have the hardware the Infinity does. Lastly Asus does update their software more than most of the other vendors I have used (Samsung is very bad at this).
