Asus Transformer Pad Infinity
Upgrading to CM-10.1.3

Jim Carter, 2013-09-29

I initially set up the TF700T with CyanogenMod 10.1.0-RC5. Now I have some time to put into I.T. maintenance, and I have upgraded both my Android devices to version 10.1.3. This is the final version for 10.1.x based on Android 4.2, and the developers will now turn to CyanogenMod 10.2 based on Android 4.3 Hyper Jelly Bean. The next major release will be CyanogenMod 11 based on Android 4.4 KitKat.

Here is the announcement of the general release for CM-10.1.3 posted 2013-09-23 by CyanogenMod. Comment poster Blaise Petric asks, do I have to do a full factory reset, from CM10? Kelly Cook replies: CM10 didn't have the builtin updater so you can't use that. But you don't need to wipe everything. Save the 10.1.3 zip and 10.1 gapps ( (2013-08-23 I think). Boot to recovery and install both zip files. Settings will be saved.

This point is reiterated in this forum post on updating: Between the same major version, e.g. CM-7.1 to CM-7.2, you do not need to wipe anything (e.g. Dalvik cache and/or cache partition). You do need the right gapps package, for Android 4.2/CM-10.1 The Android 4.1 gapps won't work in 4.2. See

Posted comments do not suggest any nasty hidden dragons in this upgrade, except for one set of complaints about 10.1.3-RC1 and RC2. In this forum thread about CM-10.1.3-RC2, all comments dated around 2013-09-05, DaRealDJHeat tried 10.1.3-RC1 and RC2 and "Google Services" eats battery. HaPel replies: purchase the app "Autostarts". In "After Start" find "Google Services Framework", and within that, disable$Receiver . With this fix his Galaxy S3 uses 3% battery per 10 hours (!) Guywmustang says, foce stop Google Services Framework once, and it will cure the problem permanently. Ruben Schmitt-Fels has the same issue on Asus TF700T.
