    i got fed up of waiting. did it manually using this method(found it originally on XDA forums) –

    no hacking required.
    uses the built in recovery mode, and a downloadable zip file of the official ICS update for a500

    i’m having no issues(like the problems people are reporting from both OTA and manual updating to ICS).. been using it for a couple of days.. runs smoothly.

    HI Chaitanya,
    First you got the update of Acer Update Enhancement app succesfully, then you receive the ICS update.
