CyanogenMod is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 5 (Lollipop), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

Code:
#include 
/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
 */
CyanogenMod is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. CyanogenMod does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

All the source code for CyanogenMod is available in the CyanogenMod Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to CyanogenMod, please visit out Gerrit Code Review.

These unofficial builds are based on the CM t30 Kernel available at https://github.com/CyanogenMod/android_kernel_acer_t30

All my specific device tree can be integrated in the CyanogenMod project.

Requirement
  1. An unlocked Bootloader - JB Version
  2. CWM recovery or TWRP recovery
    version 6.0.5.0+ with LVM Support (Look at the CWM thread) or TWRP with LVM Support (called bigsystem by Elibl)

Installation
  1. Do a Nandroid Backup!
  2. Wipe data/factory reset if coming from another ROM or version of CM. If you are already on CM11 or CM12, just make Wipe Cache & Wipe Dalvick-Cache for a proper upgrade.
  3. Install the ROM using Recovery
  4. Install the adapated Google Apps (I recommend minimal Gapps 5 on my website gapps-lp-20141109-signed.zip but you can use Latest Paranoid Gapps for 5.0.x
Note: The partition layout of CM12 is identical to that of CM11 with LVM and thus you may use CWM with LVM to backup/restore.

Bugs & FAQ
Known Issues:
  • RIL not compatible with A511
  • Flashing L might take a while in recovery (please be patient)
  • First boot might take a while too !
  • Frequent random crashes
  • Bootanimation crashes after a while (but the boot process continues normally)
  • Setting brightness to minimum while on auto brightness may cause the screen to go completely dark with no way to set it back except for guessing where the brightness setting is or using adb to force set a higher brightness.
    If you have a black screen at first boot or after bad settings manipulation, use this commande in adb :
    Code:
    adb shell "echo 255 > /sys/devices/platform/pwm-backlight/backlight/pwm-backlight/brightness"
    If it doesn't work, push power to enable your screen and try the command again.
    If the bug comes with auto-brightness enabled, you can put your sensor on a light to force it to level up the brightness.
  • SELinux not in enforcing mode
  • Bluetooth may not work properly

I'm not sure, the t30 kernel is very Acer specific on many driver part.
We need a good Kernel dev to manage to make it "clean" and remove all the Acer specific code, that would be great in order to properly upgrade the Kernel next.
Actually, we're stuck on 3.1 Kernel version because of these Acer code.

But I'm not this person, I'm lacking kernel skills (and also free time) to do this.

Unfortunately we had only one kernel dev.
But we lost him, because he has no tab anymore.


CM12 ist running on my A510 since 0:45 (in germany) without any problems, except brightness minimum.

I wiped system, cache, dalvik and internal memory (to delete all data from older installations)
Than I flashed CM12 and Gapps with TWRP.

I didn't tested Bluetooth.

CM12 isn't rooted?

It's no problem, I flashed SuperSU 2.45 to get root.
