Just an open question, does anyone out there do OS upgrades?  I have a 
Superpad III tablet, would not mind uping it to Android 3 or 4.  I would 
go out and get a new Micro SD chip for it, pull the old one out, so any 
problems just put the old one back in. One of those not so fun weekend 
projects? Thanks in advance T. James

Hi guys,
In case you haven't heard, there was an update to the 4.0.3 system 
emulator (4.0.3 r2) today. This update brings host GPU acceleration, host 
hardware feature emulation (including using your system's camera!) and 
improved CPU performance. More information is available on the Android 
Developer Blog, and the update can be downloaded Android SDK manager.


The system is way more responsive, even on systems with integrated graphics.
