    for those who have problems with the link above. try downloading the updated ROM. on the top bar of the download page it should show 
    Files >> Firmware >> Iconia Tab A100 >> Acer_AV041_A100_0.002.00_WW_GEN1. click on Iconia Tab A100 and choose the latest update. i got it to work!

    thank you!!

    Just noticed the link on this page is adding a ; after the zip, so that’s why I got the green error. Be sure you save as update.zip

          Are you renaming the downloaded file to update.zip or not. You know, take care that your computer shows you file extensions (like .exe, .zip, .tar, etc.) of all filenames. Look for it and ON this option. Otherwise, you might rename it as update.zip.zip because file extensions are not shown by default. Or simply check file’s properties to get full name of the file.

            You are awesome sir! I feel ashamed that I was renaming it update.zip.zip

            Ah ok. Happens! Glad you got it working :D

          update. i got it to work. what i did was download the latest ROM from the link above. see my earlier comment.

    How does one revert to the factory image so as to allow the “corporate standard” upgrade once it is available?

    best thing to do is download the ROM on a PC, put your SD card on the PC and move the zip file (renaming it to update.zip) to the root of the SD card.  Doing the same from android can be confusing (it’s not always clear that you’re moving the files to the right location).  I had the same problem until I did that, and it works fine.  ICS is running great on my a100, with a few small quirks (that are sure to be fixed before it’s official release):  Camera preview, occasional response from touch screen (Angry birds), and Chrome Beta will crash when you hit “settings”.

      this is what i did. except used the data cable.. nothing yet.

    so i do everything as said and when its put into recovery mode i get the android symbol with a triangle and an exclaimation point in the center. after it finally starts up it is still running honeycomb

       Did you ever get it to work?  I’ve tried several times over the past week, and same issue!

    The SD card MUST be empty with only update.zip on it.  Great ROM; the camera preview (front facing) seems a bit fuzzy, but takes great photos.

    Worked great, thanks! Process took about 10 mins.
