There are only binary-patched kernels made from those included in Acer leaks right now (not counting not-fully-working GPL-violating ones which are not allowed to be posted here anyway ).
Acer is required to release kernel source after officially releasing ICS update for device but I don't know how long it took Acer to release sources previously.
The max CPU speed is a standard 1GHz just like in stock kernel (because it is basically a stock kernel).
Actually the not-mention-able, GPL-violating kernel works very well. Not here to cause trouble, but facts are facts.
That whole fight just bugs me. If certain unmentionable devs could play by the rules, and certain (this) forums could be less hostile then we might actually see a combination of efforts that would lead to even greater software for our devices. As it stands, we'll have to wait for 1) acer to release the ICS kernel source, and 2) devs to have time to work on it, because the whole cooperation thing doesn't seem likely.
flashed the cm9 for A500, got an error installing. took out that updater file, removed the first line, repackaged and flashed again, this time flashed without problems, tried to boot it - got stuck on Acer logo screen. I'm coming from ICS leaked roms, all booted without problems. Flashed the bootloader - still get stuck on the Acer screen. What am I doing wrong?
PS: I got it running. I thought I had the bootloader update installed but I didn't really look if it got installed or ended with an error. I ran it again and found out that it actually gave an error message the same that I got with the build install. So I had to fix the first line of the updatescript on the bootloader just like I did for the build and then it booted.
So, as far as I can tell, this rom doesn't work with the honeycomb bootloader. Could you make these instructions more explicit, or perhaps post a working version of this rom I can flash with CWM to my honeycomb bootloader. I want to try it but most people seem unable to flash it with the HC bootloader.
