    So, I'm new to the Android "scene." And by new I mean I'm planning on getting an Asus Transformer Prime soon. If I wasn't going to get this I would have got the Xoom, and it's nice to see that is getting support for 4.1. Does anyone know how good Asus is at supporting their products long term? Or will I be stuck on 4.0?

    From what I'm reading ASUS is one of the manufacturers that does their updates relatively quick, all the places I'm reading say they'll be shocked of the prime doesn't get 4.1.

    I'm going to laugh when hackers port Jelly Bean to my HP TouchPad months before offical Android tablets receive the update.

    Devices could possibly receive this update relatively quick due to the new PDK that Google has put together.

    By the way, if you are wondering what's new in Jelly Bean compared to ICS, it's mostly cosmetic touches like Project Butter which makes the UI "iOS smooth", a better notification system, and what I believe to be a Siri killer.... (I may have forgotten a few things(

    Which is Google Now... Just take a look at what this beast can do. ;O;

    One of the most ignorant statements I've hear in quite awhile, yet it doesn't surprise me since it's coming from you. The TouchPad camera is shit to begin with so that's not even worth mentioning since it is the only major 'feature' not working. Everything else works very, very well.WiFi. Bluetooth, Mic, HW acceleration, games, and anything else. I could go on but I'll just leave a few pictures of one of the best looking Android games available running on my TouchPad... (Oh and I'm making the game think it is running on Tegra 2 Hardware so I get tons of special effects... Something cool you can do when you know what you are talking about)

    Har har har yoo so funneh.

    Last I checked, which I'll admit was a while ago, ICS didn't have HW acceleration, had crappy wifi drivers, and I couldn't give 2 fucks about the camera. I'll have to head over to rootzwiki to check the forums again.

    Someone told me they stopped developing ICS for the Touchpad because it was becoming outdated. I never really bothered to check because I was fine with CM7.

    Try XDA, honestly Cm9 is as stable on my touchpad as it is on my Xperia Play and Xperia U. Follow the news ;)

    Lo. If I had know that I would have given you a much harder time. All of those things are pretty much perfect now except the camera.

    Development has slowed down a lot since the main developer got a Transformer Prime, but we still have the genius that is jcsullins, the developer responsible for recently making the Mic and Audio work, the creator of MOBOOT, and other awesome stuff. As long as we still have him nothing can stop us. ;O;

    I'd recommend you go flash the latest nightly. You'll shoot yourself for all the cool stuff you've been missing out on. ;)

    That's what I get for listening to the unknowledgeable :rolleyes:

    Some really really recent readings suggest CM9 will be finished first, then CM7 and CM10 will be worked on simultaneously.

    That is true. There will still be some work to polish up cm9, then on to cm10, while keeping cm7 for devices that cant run cm9/10. TouchPad will probably receive CM9 updates for the next month or two, while receiving some experimental Jelly Bean images to play with in the weeks to come. Then when CM9 is all nice and shiny we can move onto 100 percent Jelly Bean. Very excited. :)

    I thought if I would post something about Android for once rather than iOS, there would be less fights. But it seems even Android users hate each other almost as much as Android users hate iOS people.

    Please take your arguments to PMs or something.

    Generally speaking, Android devices get updated once or even twice and that's pretty much it

    That being said, Nexus devices get it straight away since there is no TouchWiz, Sense, or any of that bull crap that some manufactures slap on to it on top

    I gave the leaked Jelly Bean rom a go on my brother Galaxy Nexus; it was great but a load of applications don't work with JB yet :(

    That being said, expect a HUGE increase in battery life. I can't be sure, but from what i read after googling about it JB goes into some sort of underclocking mode like a PC would when not on full load thus saving a LOT of battery life

    The battery was much better, i had been using it all day, with some standby time and the battery just got down to around 40% (i'd usually be in the 10% region if it were ICS)

    So yeah, good job Google

    I personally own a Blackberry now (yes i know i'll be taking some hate for this lol) had a HTC sensation; but i do have in mind buying a Galaxy Note upon my next pay check / can't live without that androidness.

    And if they don't, someone is bound to make a Jelly Bean ROM for just about every device possible.

    And given that ASUS offers a bootloader unlocking tool for the prime, it'll be relatively simple to set up.
