You need to boot into APX Mode, to boot into APX mode:
1. Power off
2. Connect your tablet to your PC (via USB)
3. Hold down the Vol - and the Vol +
4. While holding the Volume keys down(- and +), Power on
5. The display should go black, and both LED's on either side of the home button should light up. You are now in, APX mode.

1. Extract the  contents to a directory (download from above)
2a. If using Windows, double click the "flash-win.bat" file
2b. If using Linux, cd into the extracted directory and run either "sudo ./" or "./" from a root prompt

When running this BAT file, it will do all the hard work for you, ones finished you will have Ice Cream Sandwich on your device.   You can thank khanning for his hard work, making this happen in matter of hours after Lenovo staff released the ICS but without the most needed apps (Google Apps).
