Been doing some work on Ice Cream Sandwich for the A500. It's still a huge work in progress but it is starting to work.



Things working and in the ROM:
Touch screen (Thank you again RaYmAn)
WiFi.
Bluetooth.
Live Wallpaper
ICS Bootanimation from JaeKar99
Root Browser (free version) from jrummy
Superuser from ChainsDD
Sound

Things not working yet:
Google Talk
Calendar Sync
Video
Task Switcher
Still has green overlay (shut off transitions to minimize this)
Bunch of other stuff.

Thanks to:
DJ_Steve - for initial system build.
RaYmAn
mrdeadlocked
fards
Zerofeel
Iced Cube
digetx

There is no ETA for this to be out and I might even get beat by another dev but it will happen sooner or later.

New version of AcerCream (12-7-11):

Gapps for AcerCream:

Please realize that AcerCream has multiple issues and is nowhere near ready for everyday use.

Update 11-29-11:
Still working on the freaking wifi (even while at work :-o). Hoping to get it at some point. Not sure what I'm doing wrong yet.

Update 11-30-11:
WiFi is now working!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Update 12-1-11:
Bluetooth now works. Thanks RaYmAn.

Update 12-7-11:
Audio now works thanks to digetx.
