Asus posts patch for Prime random reboot bug

Tablet's auto-restart glitch fixed

By Tony Smith, 9 Feb 2012

Asus UK has posted a firmware update for its Android tablet, the Eee Pad Transformer Prime.

The new code fixes the fondleslab's "random reboot problem", the company claimed.

This glitch has tried the patience of a fair few Prime owners, and we wonder if it was one of the factors that persuaded UK retailer Clove to cease offering the product.

Clove wouldn't give explicit reasons when asked, but by this point the Prime's poor GPS pick-up had been addressed through a software patch released earlier this year. ®
