Default [ROM] Minimalist 3.1 - Stock, Stable and Completely Deodexed

Another ROM you say? I've tried all the Acer-based 3.1 custom ROMs and none of them seem to suit my needs. They seem to add lots more bloatware and tweaks that made my tablet quite unstable.

So I went ahead and built my own ROM which essentially is a pruned-stock standard Acer 3.1 with only the barest minimal features to maintain speed and stability of the system. I've also gone ahead and deodexed most all of the frameworks and apps so feel free to mod this rom to add custom skins and animations if you so please. I'm sharing my work in the hope that you will find it useful.

The ROM can be downloaded here -

Please leave questions, comments and queries below.

*Patch update* - I made a slight error in the update script and didn't set the right permissions for Superuser access. Apply this patch to fix it if your ROM doesn't have a working Superuser.apk -

Stable ROMs are always welcomed. Never too many of those!

Anyone tried it yet? Thoughts? I have it ready to go, but would like to hear what others think before jumping in.

Muy buenas ,

Yo llevo esta ROM ahora mismo ya que a mi no me gustan las ROMS con programas de inicio me gusta poder instalar yo lo que quiera y de momento va perfecta muy buen rendimiento , buen consumo de la bateria , ningun reinicio ni cogelacion del iconia expontaneo ...

Saludos !

Thanks for this ROM. I had been deleting apps I did not want but could not get past the Vendor subdirectory. This is now my daily ROM.

Does this still have the annoying, battery wasting "screen on in standby" problem?

I'm going to try this now, I'm unimpressed with the acer 3.1 update, lots of FC, dhcp issue on wifi, overloaded ram (seems to have worse mm than 3.0.1).


looking forward to yours!
