Cheers for the link OldGaf and for the upload + effort t_r_j

I am on build 7.014.15_com_gen1 and currently downloading this from here won't be able to install until late today. (heading to work now arghhhh)

just curious about a few things.

1. would i lose my data (apps/games) if i install this?
2. would the official ota done from tablet delete or retain my apps & games?
3. i am not sure why PA_CUS1 is in the build name now and whether I will get something similar if i do it over ota? I am thinking must be your region code? if so where are you located t_r_j if you don't mind sharing?

I did not loose anything with any of the leaks or this official one.
From what i have read the extension means nothing.
I was gen2 on 3.2, gen1 on all the leaks and now cus1.

Here is how I did:
1. Download and install Wireshark
2. Download and install Connectify Lite (so you can turn your PC with Wifi to a Wifi hotspot)
3. Use your PC to connect to the internet via LAN cable
4. Run Connectify, share the internet connection
5. Run Wireshark and start capturing packet from the LAN interface (make sure there are no software connecting to the internet)
6. Connect your Acer A500 to your Wifi hotspot on PC
7. On Acer A500: open Settings -> About -> System -> Check for update -> Click Download and Install
8. In the Wireshark window you will see many packets, you can stop capturing now.
9. Look in the upper part of Wireshark -> search for something like: GET /Acer_A500_4.010.40_7.006.03_COM_GEN1_1316137926088 _14fd4822.zip HTTP 1.1 ....
10. This is the file you want to download

Sorry for being late, but I mirrored the file anyway. My server has no bandwidth cap.

I'll take the file down in a week or two (this file makes my site backups too fat).

I just installed. My A500 was a GEN2 one, now it's a CUS1.

Almost everything I tried works as expected. Notes:
  • Tablet seems to boot faster than with 3.2.1
  • Autorotate and rotate block switch works for me (this is something everyone is complaning about)
  • Google maps didn't work in the first boot (app started, but only showed a black background, and incomplete menu) After a reboot, it worked fine.
  • Flash plugin and Twitter app upgraded (yesterday there wasn't any upgrades, but it can be just coincidence)
  • Videos in general (media player, YouTube app, IMDB app) start very choppy, after several seconds stabilizes and then they play smooth.
  • OMG I can install Chrome at last!
Now I'll have to tidy the mess of icons on my home screen. I was so sure to need a hard reset I didn't care.
