Acer Iconia A501 Tablet Upgrade From Telstra Firmware to Android 4.0 ICS

I bought the Acer Iconia A501 on special from Telstra for $200 a while back. It’s a good tablet and that was a great price for it, however I’ve been annoyed that Telstra hasn’t bothered to release the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update that Acer released for unbranded devices. Acer blames Telstra for not releasing it and Telstra blames Acer for not making it available. Bleh.

Fortunately it was not too hard to unbrand the device and upgrade all the way to Android 4.0.3 and presumably 4.1 when Acer finishes that update too.
