Totally new, here...Been working on doing this for an hour and just got it installed..Now I'm at the SuperSu step. How exactly do I install SuperSu from CWM?

Okay..Install the exact same way you install the other zip. This tablet wrecks my nerves, and I can't stand messing with it. I've heard so many horror stories of bricks and I saved for a long time to have enough cash to buy this thing.

Thanks for your work, I've finally got my JB rooted and can play with my emulators and screenshot tools again.

The boot ramdisk is based on the EMEA.GB Jelly Bean ROM but should work for all A700's

About the boot.img:
  • Patched Based on latest RV10RC01.EMEA.GB
  • IconiaN - Built from Acer Jelly Bean kernel source
  • Fully insecured boot.img
  • Full ADB access to /system

You need:
  • Acer Iconia Tab A700 with unlocked bootloader & already be running Jelly Bean
  • ClockworkMod Recovery - 6.0.1.5 or newer

How to flash:
  • Download zip and place it on your virtual or external 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 zip
  • After flashing process is complete, reboot the device

Alternative install for Stock patched kernel ONLY:
  • Reboot to bootloader
  • Extract boot.img from the zip
  • Flash boot.img via fastboot

How to get root:

(Kernel is unchanged from Acer other than a single "tag" line in defconfig, I will follow GPL and upload kernel source on request)

OK..don't want to sound dumb here. My bootloader is already unlocked. What steps do I need to do to get rooted? I'm not sure so I figured it was better to ask then to guess and mess things up! Thanks to all of you that do these things for us....

I'm sure it is a coincidence, but as soon as I finished, my external SD card became unreadable/unmountable. Trying it in my PC and it says it needs to be formatted. All my data was lost. (Well...Maybe...I'm trying some recovery stuff before I give up and reformat).

You can look in the install script, it never touches the external sd card.
I think a lot of these issues are still related to cwm, I'm looking at it a bit to see what's really happeneing.

I was able to recover all my files, but still had to reformat the card. Not too big of a deal.

Try the stock one. Source built may not have ntfs enabled.
Seems acer don't release the exact source they actually compile and release

Once I have moved house I will get everything setup properly and work more on the kernel

Hi,


this seem very attravtive, thanks for putting this together. I have a few questions for you. Bearing in mind that I start from a 100% stock JB A700:

- Will any of the install steps wipe data / settings on my system ?
- Will it prevent futur OTAs ?
- Is there there a way to go back to stock if we do this ?


thanks for your help!
