Default Kernel 3.0

I was just wondering if anyone planned on porting Linux kernel 3.0 to the iconia a100... since it seems that no one pays any attention to the development section..

You can't and the 3.00 Kernal is the same as the current kernal just with a different name. 3.00 Kernal isn't supported on Tegra 2 anyways.

Firstly, no developer would be able to make a kernel (at least a competent and GPL compliant one) until Acer has dropped the Kernel Source for the ICS update.

Secondly, it remains to be seen whether the Tegra 2 drivers indeed work with the v3.0 Kernel as the ICS update for the Xoom still uses a 2.6.39 kernel.

And for a bonus third, the 3.0 version of the Linux kernel is NOT the same with a different version number, it carries on with the same updates/bug fixes from previous releases for sure, but is not the same as previous kernel versions.

Thank you toy face. That is a more logical explanation. So there would be no way of porting?

Thank you guys. I was just a little curious. I was looking through the kindle fire development section and there was a Linux 3.x kernel for them so I had thought it was possible for us.
