CyanogenMod is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

WARNING: I've bricked my tablet into APX mode around the 10th time of flashing this ROM (recovery froze and it rebooted into APX). The new (Update 1) recovery should be safer than the old one, but flash at your own risk!

 * 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. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.

Device-specific source code for the Acer A700 are available from https://github.com/CyanogenMod/android_device_acer_a700 and https://github.com/CyanogenMod/android_kernel_acer_t30

Do not submit bug on CyanogenMod issue tracker

Latest Nightly: http://download.cyanogenmod.org/?device=a700
Google Apps: http://goo.im/gapps

  1. Install CWM recovery from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1791165 (note that the old touch version will not work because of incorrect default.prop from CWM builder)
  2. Do a Nandroid Backup!
  3. Install the ROM using ClockworkMod Recovery
  4. Optionally install the Google Addon
  5. Wipe data if coming from stock

A rough changelog is (will be) available here:
http://changelog.bbqdroid.org/#/cm10.1/a700 or http://10.1.cmxlog.com/?device=a700

Reporting Bugs

You are allowed to report bugs only in this thread.
  • Grab a logcat right after the problem has occurred. (Please include at least a few pages of the log, not just the last few lines, unless you know what you're doing.)
  • If it is a random reboot, grab /proc/last_kmsg. (Do not bother getting a logcat unless you can get it just before the reboot. A logcat after a reboot is useless)
Remember to provide as much info as possible. The more info you provide, the more likely that the bug will be solved. The following is a useful format to follow.

What is your--
Phone model:
Radio (baseband):
CM version:
CM Download url:
Gapps version:

Did you--
 restore with titanium backup:
reboot after having the issue:

Are you using--
a task killer:
a non-stock kernel:
CMSettings/Performance settings (other than stock):
other modifications:

Provide any additional information (observations/frequency of problem/last version it worked on/etc) as needed:
The CyanogenMod team would like to thank everyone involved in helping with testing, coding, debugging & documenting! Enjoy!

Note to Official JB Users

Jelly Bean bootloader is only supported on 201212023-EXEPRIMENTAL and later NIGHTLIES.

Creating a new thread since CM 10.1 is significantly different from CM 10 and there will be different bugs.

So far i got the OTA update from your preview of CM10.1, no problems...


- Move softwarebuttons to border to reach them easier with hands on the side of the tablet
- Shrink the quicksettings tiles

One question about the lockscreen, what does a widget need to appear in the lockscreen widgets list ?

Is there any way to switch to the pre-4.2 tablet UI? (as opposed to the new phone-like UI)?

I`m on the first initial release from pawitp and the battery life is absolutely awesome. 2% lost in 2days and 9 hours Standby with 10 Min Display time. It could be a little bit smoother though. Could we set the CPU clock a little bit highter with an easy echo command? I have experience with Arch and Gentoo, but I don`t want to brick my device with modifying the kernel myself.

So that means battery life is better than JB stock?

After my first impressions: Oh hell yes! But I have to test it more with screen-on time and maybe a newer nightly.

My experience show slightly reduced battery life time ... about the smoothness its like 4.1 for me.

If you want a video go to youtube for it, theres nothing different for 4.2 on the a700 as on other tablets.
