Acer Iconia A500 Ice Cream Sandwich Update Rolling Out Now

Last week we learned that Acer was planning to rollout an Ice Cream Sandwich update to both the A500 and A100 by April 27. Well, it looks like they may have started 2 days early, as one of our readers received Android 4.0.3 today. If you own either the A500 or A100, be sure to cruise into Settings>About and check for the update. You may be able to pull it a few days earlier than planned. 

Cheers David!

    Make sure you download and install the latest version of the Update Enhancement, which I did per numerous suggestions here. Once you do that, go to System Update in settings. This allowed me to (finally) get the ICS update for my tablet.

    is ics avialable for a510 tab ?

  • ldoro

    mine got update a few hours ago and it’s awesome!it’s not ‘laggy’ at all ! there are a few changes for sure they should’ve add the ‘ring’ but whatever it looks good and it’s way way faster! – Montreal

    ps: it took about 7 mins to install…

    Anyone still waiting on the update:
    Check the Play Store and search ‘Acer’, there’s an update for the systemupdater controller that is necessary for the ICS download.  I installed the “ICONIA TAB Update Enhancement” application from Acer Inc. and the next thing I know the device is detecting the ICS update being available.

    Give it a shot. Certainly couldn’t hurt.

      Joe I have “ICONIA TAB Update Enhancement installed. No ICS being detected, do you think I should uninstall and reinstall to see if it will recognize the update for ICS. Your response will be greatly appreciated.

    Installed the ICS update this morning and it went into a reboot loop (every 1 minute). After an hour I gave up and did a factory reset. Now I need to find the time to re-install and reconfigure 153 apps. What a POS.

            A500. Still no ICS update here in Taiwan.

          • DBarni

            I purchase A500 from Amazon to find out that it was shipped from Taiwan. Chatted with Acer Support and gave them the snid number and they said that they could not find it even though I registered with them. I am in PA and no ICS as of today 5/21/2012. Need help or any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

  • Dan Treacy

    I put the leaked version on my girlfriend’s A100 months ago and the performance improvements were so great I almost considered picking one up for myself.  Great job Acer!

  • Smeckle

    Can the reader confirm that the OTA A500 ICS build will not have Apps2SD? Honeycomb did not.
