Will The Acer Liquid Metal be getting Ice Cream Sandwitch (4.0)?
Only through custom ROMs (specifically CM9, Maybe Miui 4)
I'm running out of room for apps, and my phone is constantly low on memory
The liquid metal has two hardware weaknesses, one is the camera, the other is the low internal memory.
See k0zmic's guide on rooting / formatting the SD card for link2sd/apps2sd for info to increase your storage.
My Battery is stuck at 84% charge!
This is a known bug in the 1% step kernels. There are a few ways around it.
1) Reboot the phone. Sometimes this works
2) Try charging the phone from a usb port on a computer
3) Install a 5% kernel (see Technolover's kernel)
Where can I get the newest gingerbread firmware?
Short Answer: From the Acer website. www.acer.com
Long Answer: Some regions still don’t have default access to the latest firmware. You can always go to another country’s site and download it. (4.000.13_EMEA_GEN1)
How do I restore my phone to stock?
Easy way: Flash the latest firmware from the Acer website using the SD card download mode.
Extract the acer_ug folder from the website rom and place it on your SD card.
If that doesn’t work: Download the “Acer Download Tool.” Use it to flash the firmware.
Doing either of these will replace any custom recovery you may have installed, and you will loose root. If you have to return your phone to Acer for warrantee repair, you MUST return your phone to stock.
If this still doesn't work check out the BIN collection sticky. Try flashing one of the old FW first.
My Data doesn’t work on CM7 or MIUI!
This is a known issue for certain carriers. KPN (Netherlands), "3" (Italy), Vodaphone (Italy) and Rogers (Canada) are known to be a problem.
For Rogers customers;
Toggle airplane mode and / or data enabled on and off and check the APNs in the network à
mobile network settings. If you see APNs choose one. Your data will work after that.

The Camera sucks!
Yes. Try a 3rd

AmonRa isn’t seeing my sd-ext! You said it would!
Add an “sd” directory in the system folder. Then try again. You’ll need a root explorer to do this.
