Same issue here. I'm running stock HC with a modified build.prop. I decrypted the posted updates, copies the Gen1 version to my SD card, restored my original build.prop file and rebooted. A second after the ROM flashing animation starts, it jumps to an image of the android with a yellow exclaimation point.
It reboots normally after that, but the update seems to be invalid. I've never used the decryption app before, but it seemed too quick. Approximately 5 seconds after starting the decrytion on a 193MB file, it says it's completed. Maybe that's normal.

The updates are incremental updates (notice the .p files), so the update files require the original version to be exactly what it is coming from (including build prop file). The update hasn't been released for the US gen1 that's available to us on the net. Just be patient or stick to a leak build although I wouldn't be surprised if vache gets a hold of a full gen1 software package soon either...

The COM update, is an update for this rom version:


acer/vg_gen1/vangogh:3.2.1/HTK55D/1331292158:user/release-keys
pre-device=vangogh

So, who can give me a link for the 3.2.1 HTK55D firmware, please?

The rom installed is:

acer/a100_aap_au/vangogh:4.0.3/IML74K/1334283555:user/release-keys
post-timestamp=1334283609

I was considering attempting the update using the EMEA_GB version posted by Vache but am nervous I might do some damage to my tablet.

My current unmodified build.prop starts with the following...

ro.build.fingerprint=acer/vg_gb/vangogh:3.2.1/HTK55D/<<long number>>

I was wondering whether the <<long number>> that comes after /HTK55D/ must match for the update to work or if it is just a personal identifier?


Thanks in advance for any advice.

To those who have the update already, did Acer end up including the Acer Ring launcher?

Is it Acer_AV041_A100_1.014.00_WW_GEN1 or a variation of 014?
