New System Update tonight (6/1) !!!
Picked up my A100 this evening - and on the screen was a notification of a new system update !!!
I was already on ICS 4.0.3.
Image Name: Acer_A100_AV041.RV16RC02_WW_GEN1
Downloaded the update, it unzipped and installed, re-booted twice, it optimized 113 of my applications and I was told the update was successful.
After the update:
Android version: 4.0.3
Kernel version: 126.96.36.199+
Image version: Acer_A100_AV041.RV16RC02_WW_GEN1
So far the only thing that has been effected is that it seems to have been un-rooted (bastards!).

yeah i just noticed i have been un-rooted..(grumbles )
I got the update as well.
I scream you scream we all scream for ICE CREAM!
I got it last night (5/31/2012) around 8:00 PM Central. It almost appears that despite the fact that people were upgraded to different image versions with ICS initially rolled out, that we may be getting the same Image Version/Build Number with this update? Just a wild guess...
....still no acer ring and I cry on the inside a bit.
Has anyone noticed ANY difference at all? Until I learn about some benefit, I'm not going to do this update. I would rather not bother going through the re-rooting process unless there's a reason.
My A100 is running fine and no one seems to have any clue why this update is coming out.
(Okay, I heard one report of lots of additional languages I don't speak, so that's just taking up extra storage space on my tablet.)
And, btw, I was notified late last night on my rooted tablet. This was originally a Gen2, but updated to Gen1 to get the first updates to ICS.
Based on the size I was hoping this was going to be the promised "Acer Ring" update with a few bug fixes. Alas, still no ring, and no idea what was "fixed". I will say that my tab seems to be a bit snappier waking from sleep, and perhaps ever-so-slightly better battery life, but can't say for sure with only one day under its belt.
Ti backup did notice some newer versions of several stock apps. But the tab feels the same to me.
I also saved my update and posted it in my thread on the subject, if anybody wants to look at it. Also my update was 51mb.
New ICS update available
Get it too.
Ait was really better
Very less freeze, dans keyboard appear quickly
Thé update to ics was horrible, now it come back to the good stability of honeycomb.
Thanks to acer
Re-rooting went well after this new update btw.
Phew. I feel 'free' again.
