iconiaN is a project I am starting to bring a unified stock rom to the A700 that will work on devices from all regions.
I will soon be making iconiaN a project on github in the next few weeks and will welcome contributions from you all.

About the rom:
  • Android 4.1.1 (Jelly Bean) - Based on latest available version
  • Multi-Region support - Choose your region while flashing (GB, US, DE, ES & FR)
  • exFAT and NTFS
  • USB Network Device support
  • CIFS Support
  • Fully working ROOT
  • Insecure boot.img
  • BusyBox
  • Zipaligned
  • Fully de-odexed
  • init.d scripts (BusyBox run-parts) support
  • All /system applications updated to latest available
  • Bloatware fully optional

You need:
  • Jelly Bean Firmware/Bootloader
  • Acer Iconia Tab A700 with an unlocked bootloader
  • ClockworkMod Recovery - 6.0.1.5 or newer

How to flash:
  • Download ROM and place it on your virtual (internal) SD card
  • Boot your phone into ClockworkMod Recovery (via adb or with a key combo)
  • In main menu, select "install zip from sdcard"
  • Select "choose zip from sdcard" and browse to the location of iconiaN rom
  • After flashing process is complete, reboot the device.
  • Make sure bootloader was not relocked during update if A700 fails to boot

I can't as I only have a A700 and would not like to risk putting something out on the internet I have not used & tested myself.
Maybe someone with a A701 will take up the task and do something similar.

Well, we will have to compare notes. I'm sitting on a fully de-odexed version as we speak

Just have to get the time.
