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.

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


The file name is
So, in my opinion, it is for Acer_A500_7.014.14_COM_GEN1.


After using this update package, the A500 system is rootable using blackthund3r's one-click root tool.

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?
