Acer A510 Iconia Tab AIO Toolbox
**************************

By: marlopainter

I posted this here because there isn't an A510 Forum yet.
All the A510 people come to the A500 Forum.
Delete this if it's a problem.

Not all options are specific to the A510.

UPDATED 5/23/2012 : v2.3.0

COMPLETE OVERHAUL OF GUI AND COMMAND ISSUANCE


See Changelog at the bottom.

Inspired by: Bay_wolf's AIO Vibrant Toolbox 2.5


THIS IS INSTALLED ON YOUR PC, NOT YOUR MOBILE DEVICE


DISCLAIMER:
This is a Work In Progress.
I'm distributing this program as-is
and make no guarantee that it will
not hurt your device. So, use at your
own risk and don't blame me for bricking
your device. I am to not be held liable for
any outcome of the use of this program.

Options are tested personally on my A510.
It is written in VB2010, NOT C,
and you will need the Framework from MS.
I use Windows 7 - 64 bit, so that's why.


What is this:
This program will do many of the tasks in a few clicks
rather than opening command prompts, etc.
The routines are ALL visible and OPEN for inspection.


-IMPORTANT-
This program uses the SendKeys commands available in VB.
This means a window will open and the info will be "auto-typed" for you.
You will clearly see all the commands I am sending to your device.
DO NOT CLICK YOUR MOUSE AND CHANGE FOCUS DURING A ROUTINE!
The function doesn't care where the info is sent, it just sends it.
Allow the function to finish before attempting to do something else.
The functions take less than a minute, you will NOT be waiting long.



Setup Your Device:
USB Debugging MUST be ENABLED
Connect the USB cable to your PC and Tablet
Some options require root
Use this program to root your device


What can You do:
At the moment, there are 9 tabs of options.
They are divided up by functions. Similiar functions are grouped.

**///NEW\\\**
*** Menu Stip across the top for quick access to commands/tabs.
*** Access Google, XDA, AcerTabletForum, and this thread with 1 click
*** Send me an email
*** Donate


Tab 1 : Drivers : ONLY A510
*** Download the USB Drivers directly from Acer.
*** To save program weight, I removed the drivers from the package.
*** Most people will have them already, or only need them once.
*** You can also open the "Device Manager" from this screen if there
*** are difficulties seeing your device with ADB.


Tab 2 : ADB Connection : Any ADB Enabled device with USB Debugging Enabled
*** Use this tab to check your ADB connection.
*** It is recommended to do this before most operations.
*** A link is provided with more info on ADB


Tab 3 : Command Prompts : Any ADB Enabled device with USB Debugging Enabled; Root
*** Open Command Prompts quickly
*** Two options: Shell with SU; Raw CMD prompt
*** Links for more info on Shell and SU also provided


Tab 4 : Misc Tools : Any ADB Enabled device with USB Debugging Enabled; Root
*** Mount /system/ RW with 1 click
*** Clear dalvik cache with 1 click
*** Link for dalvik info provided


Tab 5 : Reboot Controls : Any ADB Enabled device with USB Debugging Enabled
*** Reboot device into 1 of 3 modes
*** Normal, Recovery, Bootloader
*** Links for info on Recovery and Bootloader provided


Tab 6 : Root : A10x and A5xx with ICS; USB Debugging Enabled
*** Root your A10x and A5xx with the ICS Simple Method
*** Link to ZeroNull's post and info on Root provided
*** 'Unroot'

All thanks go to ZeroNull for the exploit
and to Jesse6749 for discovering it works on the A510

ATTENTION!
Don't install Busybox! It is already installed and established!
If you reinstall it, some programs will become unable
to access root permissions!



Tab 7 : Bootloader : Any Device in which "fastboot oem unlock" is acceptable
*** Unlock your Bootloader and Reboot Out
*** READ CAREFULLY


Tab 8 : Backup : Any ADB Enabled device with USB Debugging Enabled
*** Pull files and APKs
*** Buttons to Pull from:
****** build.prop
****** /data/app/
****** /data/app-private/
****** /system/app/
****** /system/vendor/app
****** Custom Pull : Just type the file's address and click


Tab 9 : Install : Any ADB Enabled device with USB Debugging Enabled
*** Mass install APKs
*** Simply place the APKs in the 'APK' folder in this app's directory and click.
*** A list of APKs will appear, click to install the list.
*** The list isn't 'choose-able' It's there more for debugging, make sure it sees them.



Possible Additions in the future:
Custom Push Options
Choose-able list for Mass APK install



To INSTALL the Program on your PC:
*** Download the zip file [LESS THAN 3MB]
*** Most of the weight is Superuser.apk and the Root Package
*** Extract to desired folder
*** Leave the file structure intact.
*** Click Acer_A510_AIO_Toolbox.exe
*** Version Number is shown on the Title Bar of the program
*** Have fun!

Have you tried nvflash (i.e can you get SBK out of the serial number)?

Try another system or install a virtual machine with Win7.
The support for Win8 is not given yet

I actually need help with that. Anyone can recommend some links/resource/best programs to have a Win7 VM?
Note that this is my 1st time trying to do it. Gimme noob links. I'm on an XP 32-bit machine.

I think you use Win7 and not XP?

If you use XP, there will be no problem.

Otherwise...
Install VirtualBox:
https://www.virtualbox.org/
Than you need a Win7-Image. You can start the Win7-Image in this virtual machine (if you see it, you can handle it ), install the Acer-drivers and use the adb commands.
