Same here,

No issues thus far. I made sure to do a factory reset after I updated to be absolutely sure because in my experience going to a major release pretty much always warrants one (there's always an app or a setting that just doesn't sit right with the new firmware).

After letting my apps all come back from Google Play (I haven't tested them all), I can say that I haven't experienced any issues yet and definitely nothing that some other folks are reporting. Time to go through and painstakingly re-install my Amazon store acquired apps.

Here's the pic I promised. I took this using ICS SS feature and then uploaded it to dropbox using the Gallery app:

GEN 2 N.J. installed with no issues.

Fonts nicer.
Camera a bit better.
App drawer tweak.
Settings page different.
No Lock Ring.
Smoother home screen.
Slight lag on app startups but seems to be getting better.

Not a drastic update but still better.

Checked and mine rolled in. New England USA. Going to dl it but I'm not going to install it if I can avoid it. Still lurking threads to see how it goes for those who do.

Got the update when I woke up this morning and installed. So far I am not seeing much difference. It feels a little smoother and it randomly vibrates for no apparent reason other than that I cannot see much difference in the controls and abilities as far as on the surface. Not sure exactly what new features it added minus a new look on the lock button on the lock screen and the native folder support which is a def. bonus.
Current Phones:
SG Note 3, Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom
Tablet:
Acer Iconia A500
Previous Phones:
T-Mobile Dash, T-Mobile Wing, iPhone 3g, Garminfone, HTC G2, MyTouch 4G, Motorola Atrix, Motorola Atrix 2, Samsung Skyrocket, HTC Titan, SGSII, LG Thrill, HTC Vivid, SGSIII
And a Long list of Stuff Prior to Smart Phone Existence.

It is official ICS update, at least it is from Acer update server. But after update, the version become WW instead of COM

Before: Acer_A500_7.014.14_COM_GEN1
After: Acer_AV041_A500_1.031.00_WW_GEN1



Edit:

The file name is Acer_A500_7.014.14_041.203.01_COM_GEN1_1333444737199_8ec8b991.zip.
So, in my opinion, it is for Acer_A500_7.014.14_COM_GEN1.


Edit2:

After using this update package, the A500 system is rootable using blackthund3r's one-click root tool.
Link: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1520469

The 6.0 version of this rooting tool also brings Acer Ring!!!

Big thanks to blackthund3r!!!
I tried this method but unfortunately I always get a "installation aborted" error message in CQM. I'm using a rooted Acer_A500_7.014.14_COM_GEN1. Also decrypted the file. Any help?
