m.k, 12 Nov 2014They keypad not working properly not even displaying to type anything aft KitKat update pl help....I've also encountered that issue before after upgrading from Jellybean to kitkat. You can download a third party app like swiftkey...that's what I did before and it worked.
Yesterday I received a new update from Asus via OTA, and my phone is now running on WW_user_220.127.116.11. The new update that I installed fixed the 'lost keyboard' issue. Once you received the newest update from Asus, you just need to go to Setting>Language & Input>Choose Asus Keyboard and set it as your default keyboard.
I just also found out earlier that my issue with USSD/mmi has been fixed after installing the new update that I received from Asus (WW_user_18.104.22.168).
The only problem that I have now after receiving the new update from Asus are:
1. Battery still draining relatively fast compared to my other phones
2. Weak rear speaker even with audio wizard turned ON and set to Music mode....still weak if I will compare it to my previous phones.

Virenh83, 12 Nov 2014Thanks for the info Amit. Appreciate it.hey viren did u get a prompt for this (T00J_WW_user_22.214.171.124_20140903_9870) update or did u search for it manually and then update it? I too am from India and my phone is on 40.9 i was wondering if i shud download the file from asus site or wait for my phone to prompt me to update
The only two things that i dont like about this phone are camera and battery ...
But thats fine if the camera is not at its best .. i also accept the fact that battery drains fast cause of the intel atom processor but if theres only a way atleast to conserve battery..
I dont play games often.. i checked and browse internet once in a while.. i still notice the battery drops from 100 fast even without using it.
I tried to stop some services like what i saw on the previous posts but some features or work of some apps will be comprised.. or maybe i just dont know which are the services that can be stopped .. so
If is not to much too ask of u guys .. can u please list down all of the service that we could stop as long as everything will still work properly and that will be highly appreciated.. thanks
Ps. I dont go on rooting yet, since the phone is still under on 7 days replacement period.. hehe..here inthe philippines..
i installed some games like riptide gp2 and asphalt 8 and noticed that they run fine for 1 day but start crashing 2nd day onwards. Read online that its because they are made for arm architecture and zf5 has intel processor so they arnt compatible. any1 else face the same problem or have any solution?
