    Acer Back 2 Basics (B2B) ROM 4.0.3 released 5/31/12

    Decided to make a stock Acer 4.0.3 ROM. The only thing added is Super User and Busybox. Everything else has been left stock (nothing removed). You will want to use CWM to flash it (I have not tried to use the stock recovery). You will also need to be on the ICS Bootloader for this to work right.

    PLEASE REMEMBER THAT ALL FLASHING IS DONE AT YOUR OWN RISK.

    Build Number: Acer Acer_AV041_A500_1.033.00_PA_CUS1
    Download: http://downloads.tabletroms.com/blaz..._ICS_4.0.3.zip
    MD5SUM: 2510914189df8ffb6ed55c47d82f2609


    Honeycomb builds:

    Build Number: Acer_A500_7.0014.02_COM_GEN2
    Download:http://downloads.tabletroms.com/blaz...tedbusybox.zip
    MD5SUM: a0e4f5da431562125b42436d09aa1e3f

    Deodexed Version: This has not been updated yet.
    Download:http://downloads.tabletroms.com/blaz...2Bdeodexed.zip
    MD5SUM:5dad8f77f851b6e141ddcda4dd5df51b
    Notes:MusicA and Tegrazone not included yet as I have not been able to get them deodexed. As soon as I get them done I will post up a patch.

    I tried this install with a wipe and without and it seemed to work fine. However, if you do run in to bugs it is probably best to do a full wipe and then install to see if the issue goes away before reporting a bug.

    Future plans: I want to create another stock ROM that is deodexed and maybe zip aligned. That will be added as a separate ROM.

    Please let me know if you have any issues.

    Blazingwolf:
    If you added superuser and dropbox, then am I correct to assume that this ROM is rooted?

    Edit: OK, I just noticed that the zip file includes the word "rooted"...
    But I still want to be sure before flashing.
    My tablet (GEN2 USA) has been pestering me about the 3.2 update for several days now, but I have been holding off on the installation because I wanted it tobe rooted, but there is no way to do it yet. I like my tablet to be as close to stock as possible, but with root for use with certain apps. That's why I am wanting to confirm this.

    I have added Super User and Busybox to the stock ROM which should allow all apps that need root to run. I have tested root explorer and Titanium Back up and they work fine.

    I have not tried flashing this from a completely stock state as I was rooted and had CWM recovery already installed.

    I'm currently running a rooted 3.1 ROM, but I have not removed anystock Acer apps. I also have CWM installed and two of my most used apps requiring root access are Titanium and Root Explorer... so I think Ill be doing almost exactly what you did, lol.
    I have not flashed this yet (will asap), but I want to say thank you now. Yours is the onlyROM I could find thatwas a GEN2 AND rooted AND had no apps removed. Please keep up the great work as people like me (and their tablets) really need you

    Wondering about difference between your version and the prerooted release at Downloads - acer-a500 - ClockWorkMod recovery,system backup,Offical ROM & etc........ - Google Project Hosting (the 4 .rar files with 7.006.003GEN1) -
    The one from link is newer?
    Since I was already rooted on 3.1, I downloaded the rar's, used 7zip to unpack them, wiped dalvik and cache and then applied the .zip and am on 3.2....

    I think you unknowingly answered your own question.
    The ROM you were asking about is GEN3 (Europe? Im not sure) and this one is GEN2 (USA).
    Other than that, I can't tell if the GEN3 one has all stock apps or not. This one does.
