Today a firmware update for my Asus Transformer Infinity TF700T Tablet was available. I got the message on my tablet that an update is available. The popup screen showed the option to postpone the update for a few hours. But I was only able to postpone the update once. After 3 hours the pop up comes once again and at this moment I installed the firmware update. The only option was to cancel the update or to click it into the background. But I installed it after the second message.
The kernel version before the update was the version 184.108.40.206 android@Mars #1. Now, after the update my tablet has the kernel version 220.127.116.11-00003-g9b43cdc android@Mercury #1 installed. The firmware has now the version. I did not released any changes so fare. The tablet works very well before the update and also after the update.

After I installed the update the tablet rebooted. The first message I saw was that the update will be installed. The second explained that 62 optimizations will the installed. The reboot and installation toke a while. I think it toke about 8 minutes. After this installation process the tablet worked very well.
The android version is the same one. It is the version 4.0.3. I am looking forward for the android version 4.1 Jelly Bean. I hope it will be available soon for the Asus Transformer Infinity TF700T.
