1. The kernel I use, is RichardTripps 3.4. It is a Honeycomb kernel.
When you use Overclocked kernel, you have to be careful of voltage to the system board. Too little votage, and you have 3g lock. (tab freezes). Or, the tab will have SOD (sleep of death). It WILL NOT work with ICS.
2. No. The current GPL kernel for ICS, is for a500 only. It does not have the necessary code to make it work on the 501. This includes Thor's kernel. And his Device tree is different from the ICS "leaked" roms. His, is ASOP, so it WILL NOT work with the current ICS release.
3. You cannot port another device kernel. Not easy, as the 501 has the only3g internal. Other kernels, use different hardware drivers which Acer has not released.
Acer, is never going to release the source code for the 501. They are too busy sleeping in bed with ATT and Rogers network. Ain't gonna happen.
