Default A500 update to Status

Just so you all know, I have confirmed that this update is OFFICIALLY on hold, and that is why nobody is getting it pushed to them. It was pulled according to Acer due to continued issues with HC3.0xxx and they have determine the release of HC 3.1 this month will fix the issues still existing in the update. This is from Level 2 support. They will confirm a target date of "sometime" this month.

So stop holding your breath and returning units for new ones!

I got that update awhile ago Acer_A500_1.141.07_COM1_GEN1.

It did create an issue. Taking picture and having it save on external sd; after a reboot they get deleted from external sd. However if you rename it then it will not get deleted upon reboot.

I recently got the 1.139.04 update OTA last week I think, after having waited a month for any update at all and now the damn thing freezes every time I unlock the screen, the browser crashes with every second web page I load and the Android Market won't stay open long enough for me to download any apps. =/ I know this is a thread for the 1.141.07 update but I didn't want to make a new thread about update issues. I just hope that 3.1 fixes all this mess because these things aren't cheap in Australia and I don't want to switch to the Transformer like a lot of other people seem to be doing. I need that USB port. =(

Last tuesday (June 6th) I emailed Acer in the Netherlands why I am not receiving my 1.141 update. Yesterday I received an answer stating that I will receive it on June 15th.

Unhappy Updates?

Can you explain to me how are made the updates at Acer for Iconia?
Because my tablet is late on the updates and I do not understand why.
Thank you
