    I can't find the g-sensor windows update. Is this something you do via the "Change PC Settings" on the sidebar in windows 8? If I check for updates, all I get is a virus definition update, no g-sensor. Plz help.

    After flashing the bios 701, the tablet seems so much better.
    1. G-sensor works, rotation lock works
    2. Keyboard button works (it appears with the metro keyboard)
    3. Home button works (switch windows)

    I have the B121 and there is no update like the BIOS 701 for the EP121. I have emailed their support a handful of times inquiring, but they can't give me any info. "Not available at this time", "No ETA" Are you kidding me...... ERRRR... Irritated!

    The rotation lock is just a little bit buggy I'm finding. Sometimes I have to back-and-forth it once or twice to get it to switch.

    I've installed the 701 bios, and now all my hardware buttons work. Thanks for the great work guys.

    I can't seem to install the Intel video driver though pointed to at the beginning of the thread. When I click on the setup file, it only installs the turbo boost driver, and afterwards I still have the old 8.15 driver. What am I missing?

    I have all the functionality restored on my EP121 using only windows update. I do not have the 701 bios flashed.

    I am really impressed that ASUS/Microsoft followed through on updating the drivers for our tablet! I though I was getting along fine with only partial functionality but it sure is nice to have proper hardware buttons!
