As I mentioned earlier it did mess up the recovery in CMW. The touch recovery works fine though. Would be a better idea to flash the touch recovery first before flashing this update.
As to the link:
1) enter captcha and go to the next screen
2) uncheck the little checkbox (seems to disappear if you translate it)
3) Click on the link to download.
Good to know. I'm still playing with Civato's ROM while I consider the options. I'm using CWM but it's the one that comes with Acer Recovery Installer. I've been sticking with it because I'm new to Android(not Linux) and it seems to use the external SD card as default and I read something about incompatability between the format twrp uses vs cwm. No idea if it matters. I just try to be careful since I couldn't afford to replace my device if I brick at the moment.
Did you remove "/recovery" from the update when you removed "bootloader.blob"? I wonder if that's could be what happend to your bootloader.
What happened with your bootloader and what did you do to recover?(feel free to just link post if I am missing it)

I was going to try installing the Acer Ring apk from sd card and maybe some of the other acer apk files included in Civato's ROM eventually if nothing else. It's good to hear they will be adding it. I like that feature allot.
I suppose once you make a good backup you could just try getting it to work that way. I used the apk files out of various ROMs to get some of the apps I wanted without a backup.
