There is no word if Asus will ever be releasing Android 4.3 jelly bean for the Asus TF101 Transformer tablet but we were XDA will surely do so and today is the lucky day. A ROM called KatKiss ROM has been released for the TF101 and it runs buttery smooth on our tablets. Here are its features.
High speed and responsive oriented (in its current state it’s already faster than 4.2.2)
High performance KatKernel included see dedicated KatKernel thread for more info
Compiled with the Linaro Toolchain with linaro optimizations
Full Dock keyboard Support with special keys
CIFS, ext4, NTFS & Exfat support
Native 4.3 FSTRIM + Manual scripts for Database optimization and fstrim.
Yes, as you can see, the ROM is pre rooted, so you will not have to follow grueling steps just to get your tablet rooted. Here are the steps on how to install it.
Download the ROM from here and backup everything.
Go to recovery (volume down + power button simultaneously).
Make a full wipe / factory reset
Flash the rom
Flash optional kernel

That is it. You now have a TF101 running Android 4.3 operating system.
