Upgraded on mine, but apparently not available on my dads a500. It keeps saying that he is already up to date.

It appears that the Gen2 is not getting the update yet.

My A500 is

Android version: 3.2.1 (stock)
Kernel Version: 2.6.36.3+
Build Number: Acer_A500_7.014.02_COM_GEN2

I'm in Johnson City TN. When I check for updates it says Your device is up to date.

I succesfuly upgrade a A500 to 4.0.3 today, but i found a problem in the screen... now when is not at 100% of brighthess, is seems like a flirk in all grey/black's colors (it's look very clear in al the background of control panel).

The "flirk" it's like what you see in CRT monitors when you not select correct refresh frecuency, or when you record with a videorecorder an old TV. That is the bad effect that i found in all system (games/video/gallery/etc). :(

Videos now are all HW decoded, and are completly smooth, all system are more smooth, but characters/font's are lees clear/sharpner because of GPU render.

Same for me here. I got the same build number. Still no update.
I'm in Brazil, by the way.

your image and build number are different from the latest leak version. There seems to be mix post of people saying the latest OTA is the same as the leak version that came out in March...

Can anyone confirm if the OTA is different from the Leak? thanks

Serious problems with ICS

My Gen1 is now updated in Spain. Be careful! I'm having serious problems with continuous reboot of the Iconia. I've detected the same case in another spanish user, with wifi disabled the iconia works fine, once enabled it starts to reboot like a batch process.

Sorry for my english

    Is this relevant to the A501? I have that and it says my device is up to date.
