DO NOT UPDATE THE TABLET UNTIL AFTER YOU HAVE ROOTED!
Not a big deal for everyone, but for those who enjoy the benefits of rooted/jailbroken devices, I repeat: do not install the OTA (Over The Air) Jellybean update until you have rooted your tablet.
Once your tablet has connected to the internet, the Jellybean update will download, and you will be prompted to install it.
Unfortunately, the Android rooting community has been unable to find a way to root the TF300 without voiding the warranty, once Jellybean has already been installed. In order to root after the update has already been downloaded, you must use ASUS "Unlock Device" app. Once you agree to the terms of the agreement, ASUS will automatically receive the credentials (serial number, etc.) of your tablet or device. From then on, no matter what issue you have with the device (cracked screen, spontaneous combustion, etc.), ASUS will refuse to service the device at all.
However, if you root before updating to Jellybean, you can just reflash the device with the stock ROM, and you'll be good to go for warranty repairs and such.
I sense a class action suit against ASUS for these practices. They must prove that a modification caused the failure in order to deny the claim.
