Appears that a lot of posts have been cleared out. Lenovo has released the S2901 which appears actually be down-featured tablet compared with the K1, except that it has ICS. So we know what the SW folks at Lenovo have been working on. Interesting though, if you look here http://www.lenovo.com/news/mp/en/2012/03/thinkPad-K1TabletUpgrade.html there is an announcement that ICS will be available for the K1 starting "This coming spring 2012". Spring is over, at least in my time zone. So Lenovo is probably thinking that if you want ICS, just "upgrade" to the S2901. But if they continue with the current track record, then those who buy in will probably not be able to upgrade to whatever comes after ICS. Check the S2901 specs carefully before jumping on board. In my opinion, the K1 is superior, even without ICS. I have been very happy with my pre-ICS K1, but will look at other brands more seriously in future purchases. I know that I can't expect a product to keep current forever, but would expect a company like Lenovo to be at the top in providing support to keep a product current for at least 1-2 years. I expect this post won't stay around long but am submitting anyway.

Nevermind I figured out why. The server the files are hosted on is complete junk and is very slow. It has crashed a couple of times. So may I suggest somebody uploads them to rapidshare or google drive.

My issue is this, evertime I flash it using the nvflash method it is extremely unstable upon boot. Sometimes it gets stuck on the CM9 boot logo, or it boots but then freezes upon a couple of taps on the screen or it just sits there and freeezes. And when it freezes it restarts and it's one long boring and irritating cycle. Unfortunately the server that host the nvflash file is a POS and is extremely slow. Can someone upload it to another server???????? I believe my problem is that the zip file is corrupted or incomplete and doesn't download all of it. There is my freaking issue!

I downloaded the zip and the checksum's didn't match. So it's possible the upload is corrupted. When I installed this ROM I used the CWM method, and I reccomend you do that as it gives you recovery and allows you to install zip fixes.
In any case I've downloaded and reupped the file to MediaFire. I'll post the link when it's done.
