Asus Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700KL) has just received a new firmware update (version 126.96.36.199) aimed to provide a fix for Heartbleed OpenSSL security issue (CVE-2014-0160) that, if left unpatched, can allow hackers to gain unauthorized control over system through MITM attacks. You can download this update for your tablet using the direct download links given below.
Alongside the PadFone Infinity A80, Asus has also pushed out Android 4.4.2 KitKat firmware update (version v188.8.131.52) for the Fonepad Note 6 (ME560CG) FHD phablet, bringing enhanced system performance, latest ZenUI, improved Modem stability, as well as a slew of feature updates and modifications for native Asus apps.
Specifically speaking, this update will bump off APP Backup, MyLibrary, Parental Lock, MyBit Cast, AO Link and Device Tracker apps apparently due to the lack of support by KitKat OS. It will, however, give you access to a bunch of new apps like MyASUS, Omlet Chat, Zen Links and Boost, What’s Next, PlayTo, Quick Memo, etc. You can download this firmware package manually using the direct download links given below.
