Acer A510 Iconia Tab AIO Toolbox
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
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.
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.

All thanks go to ZeroNull for the exploit

Possible Additions in the future:

Choose-able list for Mass APK install
To INSTALL the Program on your PC:
