dumb question, but if we are running the ICS leak and the a500 bootloader for root, is this safe to flash?

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.

I totally agree with you that the cooperation would be much more profitable for all of us. But forum rules are not at fault here. How anyone could cooperate with someone who doesn't release sources? It would be a one way "cooperation". I don't think that maintainer (because he's not its author) of this not-mentionable kernel is also author of every single patch and modification in it. Maybe some yes, but he also takes patches of other developers which are respecting GPL and release their source codes, but he does NOT give back anything to the community. And there's more to that: how anyone could tell if there isn't some kind of backdoor in such kernel if only handfull of people has access to the sources? I don't claim that there is such a thing in this kernel, but you cannot say that there isn't either.

On the matter if this kernel is fully working on a500 or not, maybe I was wrong. If yes then sorry.

And I'm sorry for an offtopic post, it won't happen again .

I get stuck at the noisy boot screen, both with twrp and ra. on a500, hc bootloader. it shouldn't be necessary to mount /system to flash a rom ,eh?

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.

it works fine with the honeycomb bootloader. install notepad++ for changing the update-script in both the cm9 zip and the honeycomb bootloader zip. flashes and boots just fine.

I used this Rom with hc bootloader it works just fine flash the Rom then the fix and it works I did have problems with getting back to my Rom of choice.. but I got back by flashing 1.7.1 recovery twrp had a bug of some sort where it would let me flash a Rom after cm9 but would get stuck on bootanimation.

So follow the op and enjoi

Once I actually remembered to follow the instructions, I am tickled pink. I flashed the ICS bootloader and all is well.

A side note: I already had working ADB & Bootloader access, so I did not think I needed the Acer drivers when I went to upgrade the Bootloader & recovery. I did. They are needed to get you into APX mode. Do not assume as I did - save yourself a couple of hours of headaches. Once I did that, upgrading to the ICS bootloader was a piece of cake, for those of you who are considering it.
