Here ya go... worked fine for me but no guarantees.... as usual, use at your own risk.

update.zip <- will work for a bit again (as of June 2 2012)

Lets see how long the bandwidth lasts!

Big thanks to t_r_j for sending me the file.

So you just did:
1/ rename the file as : update.zip
2/ place the file on the micro sd card
3/ turn off the tablet
4/ press the down volume key and the power button at the same time untill the tablets turns on
5/ the iconia will start the upgrade process by itself.

To install this one? I wonder if it will work on a com_gen1..

Thanks a ton! I had the WW_GEN1 leaked ICS from March and wasn't receiving the OTA. This installed perfectly using the method described

Thanks for t_r_j & OldGaf!
This image file really helps.

Compare to ICS COM_GEN1 image file, PA_CUS1 did not bind EC firmware update in it.
Maybe it will (or won't? ) cause some problems and we will know it later.
