    The update has been moved back because or glitches in the early release. Aussies will get it on the 16/17th of May. Not long to wait for a stable release...patience, my friend...you'll get your icy goodness soon enough.

    I'm not sure why you posted this in the Introduction section, so I'm moving your thread to the Acer Iconia Tab A500 Forum forum for you, where more people are likely to join the discussion.

    Still seeing peopel getting it in NA. Claire got her's this am (1am). Servers have ben throttled back due to congestion and using one server to distribute. It did take longer then it should have to download however.

    As far as AU or NZ that's seperate. THe NA release is goign fine. EU release will be rolling stronger in the week. Canada after NA. Spoke with Acer HQ in California and they will be cuing in regional order. NA (Southern states no issues currently) Then out from there. EU, AU, NZ is handled seperate.

    They really should have more then 2 distribution servers world wide. Especially for regions far from them.

    Just make sure you have the market place update first. (it was updated).

    I think it is better to receive an stable update than just receiving one just because you want to...please don´t be mad at the Mayans when you realize that the world will not end in 2012...

    The update wasn't pulled. IT was thorttled back, and a new check sum put in place. There is 2 worl wide sistribution servers running, which isn't goign to push to everyone quickly. RIght now it's rotating in North America.

    As logn as you haven't isntalled leaks, custom roms, and changed the boot loader, you should be fine when it is offered. If you have it should check sum the builds to preent issues or stop the install.

    A majority do not have issues. I have 2 tablets here, 3 other family members have A500's, and at least 4 firends, and all but 1 have the update with no issues. The other isn't using his tablet right now so will wait and see.

    THere was a mis release in EU regions on the updater pre released. It doesn't affect the NA release. Right now mostly Gen 2's are getting it.

    "There was a mis release in EU regions on the updater are released. It doesn't affect the NA release. Right now mostly Gen 2's are getting it."

    Just curious.....what is it that determines whether a tablet is Gen 1 or Gen 2?.....

    I'm Gen 1 & live in northern Canada....still waiting patiently......:D.....

    If you can't see the difference it might not have updated. You can go to settings and open About Your Tablet to see what system you are running. Also, if it updated, you will no longer have the + sign in the upper right hand corner. My wife's A100 did not update either.
