Full stock ROM 6.1.A.2.55 for Acro S with ROOT and CWM

So, its the easiest way to get last stock rom with ROOT.
Installing wintout unlocking bootloader:
  1. At first you need previous rom with ROOT and CWM.
  2. Unzip archive and flash ftf file via flashtool wintout any wipe!
  3. Copy StockRom_6.1.A.2.55+root+cwm.zip mirror on your SD Card and install via CWM. (If you want clean ROM, wipe all before installing)
  4. Done

You can change the order of steps 2 and 3

*#*#7378423#*#*

Rooting Status:
Bootloader Unlocked = Yes

means my bootloader is unlocked right?

can I still flash this ftf file via flashtool? (I heard unlocked phone must not run the OTA update... so I wonder if this has the same effect)

thanks

I finally buckled up my balls and proceeded with flashing this...

but I lost CWM by flashing the .ftf file (I got my CWM previously from this kernel http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1834129), so eventually I guess - after replacing the kernel(?) I lose the CWM...

so I flashed that kernel with CWM by cobrato again to flash the ROM, it went well

even though I now have .55 ROM + Kernel + Root + CWM & everything, I realize that the kernel by cobrato is slightly older than the one posted by OP

cobrato's 6.1.A.2.55 Kernel Version:

3.0.8+1.0.21100-30145-01956-g43358ca
BuildUser@BuildHost #1
SMP PREEMPT Mon July 30 13:29:45 2012

but OP's 6.1.A.2.55 Kernel Version is:

3.0.8+1.0.21100-30145-01957-gc34b591
BuildUser@BuildHost #1
SMP PREEMPT Fri Oct 5 01:14:38 2012

so without hesitation, I flashed OP's .ftf file again, losing CWM but.. the kernel is newer....

I started with stock 6.A.2.45 with root and CWM, flashed the OP's ftf file without any wipe and CWM still there, then apply the zip and done!

ashy, you have CMW in kernel...when you flash ftf file you flash stock kernel and lose CWM. My way for people with locked boot + stock kernel and CMW in ROM!
ngonchan, you have CWM in ROM and don't lose it
