Thank you to all the DEV'S who have made this possible BIG UPS TO YOU
This worked for me, and in theory if my instructions are followed carefully it will work for you.
However if your results are not the same I am in no way responsible for any dammage done to your tablet!

THE GOOD STUFF
This was tested on Acer A100 on the latest ICS LEAK found here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1510706
Also my PC is running windows 7 x64
(Follow install instructions carefully)

First install the latest ICS leak http://vache-android.com/v1/index.ph...files&file=148

Once complete do a factory data reset on your device from the settings/backup and restore menu on the tablet

When that is complete, Root your Device using the method found here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1531646
( again Follow instructions Carefully )

BE ABSOLUTELY SURE YOUR DEVICE IS ROOTED BEFORE YOU GO ANY FURTHER!!


Unlock your BOOTLOADER using the method here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1557445
(Really be careful here!)

This is where it gets tricky download http://forum.tegraowners.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=369 for your OS and extract recovery_thor17_403.img to the root of your platform-tools folder for instance mine is C:\android-sdk\platform-tools

Once completed on your PC open a command prompt as an administrator and navigate to your platform-tools folder from cmd prompt e.g. cd c:\android-sdk\platform-tools and hit enter

next type the following commands:
adb reboot bootloader

once in bootloader mode type:
fastboot flash recovery recovery_thor17_403.img
and hit enter you will see it flash to your device within a couple of seconds.

once complete with the tablet in upright landscape mode ( home button on the right hand side ) power the device down and power it back on while holding the leftmost volume button firmly when it vibrates you may release the power button.
continue to hold the volume button until you see Booting recovery kernel image on the screen.
if all went well you now have cwm on your device

now for rom manager!
boot back into android OS and navigate to the google market, search for rom manager in the upper search pane.
download the app and install
open the app and press ok
next press flask clockworkmod recovery
next confirm your phone model
a popup will say your device is not officially supported press yes
next confirm version 3.x+
and you should be good to go

Download the updated file from the above website, extract it to your desktop, and run acera200simpletool.bat and follow the onscreen instructions.

Once complete download the rom manager app from the market and install it.
Once installed open from manager and choose flash clockwork mod recovery from the top of the list, then confirm your device is Acer a100. It will say there is currently no recovery for your device and ask if you installed a custom one, choose yes and select the second option it should say 3.x.x or something to that effect. Again confirm your selection and tada you now have cwm and a working from manager. I have tested this and made a complete backup already. Cheers :)

hello masterpcker...Did you install anything else first? Were you just using the standard a100 root? Also, did you unlock your bootloader beforehand? thanks so much friend

Yes I unlocked my boot loader first, and my device was rooted so all I did was run the .bat file from the above website and choose option 3 install recovery only. I am about to try a modded a500 from and see what it does.

For some reason I followed the directions to install CWM and it doesn't work.

When I try to boot to recovery all I see is the android mascot on it's back with a warning sign. If I press the home button it brings up the Android System Recovery, which I believe is the stock recovery. I'm not even sure how to select the items. I can only highlight the menu items using the volume keys.

It doesn't look like the cwm that I have flashed on my atrix.

Any ideas?

Edit...

Btw, I did unlock my bootloader

I did, nothing still. I'm going to have to look at the batch file and manually input in the commands. Maybe that will do a difference
