That's kind of what I'm waiting for. I don't want to go to all the time of fixing something that Acer may very well fix in the final ICS. If they release the final version and it's still messed up, I'll look into writing a script. Updating the LTO is not too much of a bother.

Let me know. Maybe we can work together to put together a working script into this package for everyone.

Currently, this works for a number of users but not for others. Could be we end up with a joint development that will work for all.

The genuine "official" date on which they will "START" pushing ICS to the Iconia A500 is last stated to be 4/27. Hopefully we'll start seeing some action then on getting the update.

I don't know if this will matter in your plans to create an automatically updating utility, but it seems ICS has "abandoned" some longstanding file transfer abilities, most notably being able to connect by USB as a "Mass Storage" device. In so doing, they are seeking to limit which files can actually be copied. I ran afoul of this issue in 2 different ICS ROMs which interfered with my weekly routine of backing up both Internal Storage and External SD. I know there is a project underway here on XDA to restore Mass Storage access to ICS on some phones, but it did not work for me on the A500. Hopefully it won't prevent what you would need to do to keep things updated for the GPS Fix.

I read on another forum that the ICS update has been posted here as a zip file, but I haven't looked for it yet in the index. Those who have updated OTA and mentioned the GPS say it locks much paster now. One member said he locked 6 sats in just a few seconds.

So for those using OTA's or OTA bases, I might finally be marginalized completely!

So you want someone to post some patch made by another person here? I'm confused.
