Only tip I want to give is ,if you flash the full leaked rom 1.031.00 ( same as what Acer is rolling out as ICS release now so it seems ) is to open it with winrar or 7 zip ( don't unpack ) and delete the recovery folder in it. Makes it easier on the recovery part.
And that is how I did I it.
But again I will do wright up as I understand that for some it is kinda scary to do this.

Thank you civato you the man!

okay im thoroughly confused....I am running Taboonay 3.0.1 right now....I want to flash flexreaper and update to ics bootloader. I am confused bc I see guides if you are on the leaked ICS but I don't think I am right? I think I am still on HC bootloader.

Help please!

Thanks!

You don't need ICS bootloader to run FLEXREAPER-R12.5 , but I do recommend it.
FLEXREAPER got auto detection for what booloader you got , so it installs the correct kernel.

What exactly are the advantages to upgrading from the HC bootloader? I'm trying to weigh the balance since I only run flex reaper and don't need the bl to run it, kinda the same dilemma I have with doing that stupid "wire trick" to s-off my rezound when everything is fine without s-off

Main advantage is that you no longer have to worry about ending up in unrecoverable state, such as when on HC bootloader you corrupt both boot / recovery partitions (such as not running itsmagic etc.) - you can recover with fastboot easily.

Can only confirm this as I flashed and kinda bricked my tablet twice today (testing this rom I made for easy installing the ICS bootloader) but was able to recover it with fastboot.

I agree. Now that ICS is out, I think it's time to leave HC behind. I've been using the leaked version of ICS for weeks (months?) and have been very happy with it. Personally, I don't see much of a need for HC anymore. And with the new bootloader, like Skrilax and civato said, It's SUPER easy to recovery from a general uh oh.

I flashed this using civato's guide, and now I can't load any ROM whatsoever. I've flashed several through CWM (which does boot), but every one I've flashed hangs at the bootloader screen without proceeding to boot a kernel. Thoughts?
