Last Friday the new Jelly Bean (Android 4.1.1) update for the first generation CHT ( SKU) Padfone rolled out. But according to our forums it brings a lot of issues to the device. Most of these issues can be solved by simply factory resetting the device.

According to Asus Italy, the update will not roll out for other regions today due to these issues, but should still make it by the end of Q1.

Asus Italy wrote ...

Unfortunately we have to inform you that the verification phase that precedes the distribution via FOTA have a problem with the firmware "JellyBean" for the Padfone, which forced us to withdraw the update and carry out a review before the final release. This will slide the date of actual availability. So the update will not be distributed by February 6 (as originally planned), but later, on a date yet to be confirmed, but no later than the first quarter of this year. We know that the news will displease those who already thought they could test the new firmware from here in a couple of days, and we apologize for the unexpected. Our priority is to provide the best user experience and this decision was not taken lightly. We strive to minimize the delay and release the firmware update for owners of Padfone in the shortest time possible. Thank you all for your patience and confidence.

Asus also pulled back the full upgrade package from their official website.
