    This doesn't apply anymore !

    I made this post at the beginning of the month, shortly after ICS was originally released for the A100.

    Now, at the time of writing this, 2 weeks later, Acer started rolling out updates for the other models as well.

    I think today, the updates started rolling out for "gen2". Before I did those steps, I never had any updates pushed to my A100, and ICS was also already pushed to all the "gen1" A100's.

    It was likely a way for Acer to spread the load on their servers.

    I didn't either. But I'm still under warranty so I'm not gonna take the chance of doing any modifications n bricking it so I just waited.

    I have been getting updates over the last few days on and off (I haven't been using my tablet much). Today it said there was a new iupdate which I applied, and that installed ICS.

    Hi Chris,

    My original post was at the beginning of the month, just after ICS was released for the A100.

    People with a gen1 device were already getting the update, but mine came with a gen2 firmware version, and I was not receiving any updates at all.
    After I did the fix, my A100 got the updates and ICS within minutes.

    I am sure that if I would have left it alone, I would have gotten the update this week as well, but of course, thats almost 3 weeks later.

    I am still on 3.2.1 gen2 and waiting for ics. Customer service has been useless, even level 2. I will try your fix as waiting has yielded nothing.
