After lots of hard work by a great team of people (listed at the end), we have finally made a working Root for the Acer Iconia Tab A110.

Warning:
Code:
*I, nor any of the people involved in the rooting process of this 
tablet are responsible for any damage you may cause to your device. 
*If you brick your device, we are not to blame.
*Your warranty may be void after doing this. 
*By using this guide, you acknowledge that you are fully responsible 
for any damage you cause to your device and the device accessories.
ACER ICONIA TAB A110 ROOT GUIDE 4.1.2
UPDATED NOVEMBER 13, 2013; Most Recent Version




You will need to download/install the following before starting:

__________________________________________________ _________________________

Once downloaded, extract the Android SDK to a known location, such as the Desktop. (Use an extracting application such as Winrar)

Next, install the Nexus 7 Toolkit.


__________________________________________________ _________________________
Once that is complete, you can begin the rooting process.

On your device go to:
Code:
Settings > Developer Option
Turn Developer Options on at the top, and enable USB debugging.

Navigate to your Android SDK folder:
Code:
adt-bundle-windows-x86_x64\sdk\platform-tools
Copy and paste the recovery file in this directory, and copy the SuperSU files to the Tablet's SD Card. This will make the process easier later.

__________________________________________________ _________________________
Bootloader unlock:


The next step will wipe all your data. Remember to create a backup of anything you want to keep before attempting this.

Open a command promt (CMD) window in the directory above by holding shift while right clicking in the window and selecting "Open Command Window Here."

Type in CMD:

Code:
adb devices
Code:
adb reboot bootloader
Wait for the tablet to load into the bootloader, then type:

Code:
fastboot oem unlock
Accept on the tablet via volume and power buttons.

Your bootloader should now be unlocked.

__________________________________________________ _________________________
Root:


Type:
Code:
fastboot reboot-bootloader
Wait for it to reboot, once again.

Next, type:


Code:
fastboot devices
Code:
fastboot boot a110-412-CWM-recovery.img
Wait for the "OK" notification.
__________________________________________________ _________________________

Now, you will be booted into the custom recovery.

Right click on the Acer A110, and select install driver. Choose to point to your own path, and point it at the path for the Nexus 7 Toolkit install. (Make sure you have include subfolders checked)

Now, the device should be recognized and the root can continue.
[/Code]

__________________________________________________ _________________________

On the device, use the volume buttons to navigate and power button to choose.
Select Install from SD.

Now type:

Navigate to the CWM-SuperSU-v0.99.zip file.

You should receive a complete message.

Once that is complete, on the tablet, navigate to reboot, select yes at the prompt, and the tablet will reboot.


You are now successfully rooted on 4.1.2!

Stock Recovery
Here is a link to the Stock recovery pulled off of my tablet.
Not sure if it works or not, but if someone wants to try:
Stock Recovery



Installing Applications/Games to the External SD Card

I spent a long time looking for a program that allows me to do this, and finally found one that fully works.

DirectoryBind works wonders.
Here is a link to the guide:

Enjoy your extra storage space!

There is currently no way to make a full nandroid. However, if you want to back up the contents such as apps and data, use an app like my backup pro or titanium backup.

Make sure that it saves on external SD, not internal or you'll lose everything.

Make sure you install all the drivers and follow the beginning of the guide.
