The update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for the original ASUS Transformer tablet has been a little rocky thus far. It was even delayed a few times but today ASUS brought us good news. This morning we reported the update for the OG Transformer was starting over in Taiwan but the official @ASUS twitter page just confirmed it will begin rolling out in the US starting tomorrow.

ASUS tweeted that the official Android 4.0 ICS for the Transformer was ready and will start rolling out over the next few days, then they confirmed that it will start for the US tomorrow and all users should receive it within the week. Hooray! I’ll be checking for updates manually later this evening to see if it drops for me. I can’t wait to have ICS on another tablet.

Obviously we all should have a pretty good idea of what to expect with the Android 4.0 ICS update. The new user interface, awesome cyan blue colors and all the improvements to the browser and more. ASUS has also posted an official change log you can see here. Like usual, don’t wait for the update to land on your device. You can check manually by going to settings > about tablet > check for updates and give it a go as soon as it starts hitting devices. It should start rolling out late tonight and all day tomorrow so be sure and check back soon.

Let us know how the update goes for you, or if you run into any problems.

    Cool!  I’ll use it. 

    I’ve heard that there is spell check with that OS.  I really hope so.  It’s a damn shame that I can’t find a word processor for Android with a spelling checker.

    Hi there! I’m from Philippines and my asus original transformer had an upgrade to ICS but I’m wondering why it cant load images in my e-brochures anymore. Before the update, I could browse with it, but now, there’s a box with a question mark inside. Why is that?

    Thanks much.

    More power.
