For A500 and A501 ICS[LEAK] firmware.

How to:
1. The tablet should be already upgraded to stock ICS for A50x (or stock ICS A10x/A510 for other tablets).
2. Download this archive on the computer. Unpack it to any place.
3, On a tablet: "Settings" -> "Applications" -> "Development" -> "USB debugging" switch on.
4. Сonnect the tablet to the computer (Before connection it is recommended to update the driver for a tablet from here: A10x, A50x, A510).
5. Open the directory with the unpacked archive. Execute file: for windows - runit-win.bat; for Linux - runit-linux.sh.
The root is received!
6. Now you will have to install the following programs:
SuperUser APK
Titanium Backup

ATTENTION!
Don't install Busybox! It is already installed and established! If you reinstall it, some programs will become unable to access root permissions!

Change:
The error of final check of receiving root is corrected (The messaging that "root" isn't received, though it was not so)
Support of A510 of tablets is improved

This method uses the 'mempodroid' exploit and some workings out by ZeroNull and vdsirotkin (4pda.ru).


PS: Command "Mount ro/rw" for directory /system (partition) - works perfectly!
PS2: Sorry for the Russian language in the old executable file, the archive has been confused

I wrapped something like this up into a GUI ages ago ;) Perhaps I'll make a linux & mac one at some point too. My GUI installs Superuser and allows the user to install Trebuchet, FaceLock (currently buggy) and other tweaks: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1520469

Ok. Read:
You are wellcome! And if possible help me grow here in XDA using "Thanks button" (it's free lol).

Well, about the root is the same here, I can see superuser and su, and can go to shell and call #
But, when I try (for example) create a directory inside system the message "ready only" appear.
:(

But it's my firts time trying to use root. Any help will be very glad!

Regards,
Simply fire up ICS Root and click "Remount /system rw" In the "Remount Tools" menu ;)
Once you get the success message, feel free to unplug your tablet and play around with the system folder as you see fit :)
My method work "as it should". ;)

I have installed Acer_AV041_A500_0.019.00_WW_GEN1 and aquired root using this method.

I will try to push CWM or RA recovery.

The root access works perfectly. I just deinstalled all acer bloatware and other stuff.

Edit:
The strange part was, I could not get the ADB interface working on my laptop. When I switched my Acer from MTP (Media Device) to PTP (Camera device), found in storage settings, the ADB interface showed up in my device list under Windows 7. Then after a driver install, it worked perfectly.
When I switch back to MTP, the ADB interface disappears again.

Maybe a reboot on the win system?

All other nvflash commands fail afterwards.

After this command, the tablet enters "Entering OS download mode" with the acer logo in the middle.

It didnt work for my acer, I meant it wasnt fully rooted. I saw superuser but when in Acer Receovery Installer, it says that Bootloader version 0.03.11-ISC is locked or something. Now I cant install any other rom as it got stucked at boot screen (receovery mode) with a message "Recovery verified failed". Anyone, please help me.

I need to use USB 3G on this tablet with this ISC or please help me downgrade to 3.2.1.

Many thanks

Take a look at my A500 APX Flash Tool with the patched bootloader, recovery and kernel package. That will get you ClockworkMod. To downgrade take a look at Timmydean's 3.2.1 downgrade package

    I know this is an old thread but having issues with the root here. Trying to update my Iconia having ICS 4.0.3, rooting and installing Jelly Bean. However, I am getting the same error which everybody has got which is:



    I've seen a lot of people ask the question but no answer. My drivers are up to date. I can access the internal drive through windows. I've tried with antivirus disabled but no love. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.
    Here's a link to blackthunder tools:
    https://www.mediafire.com/file/8q1190khi3i01wo/
    There is a program called ICS root in it. Try that and see if it works.

    If you want to unlock the bootloader(after you root) and a list of lollipop roms follow this thread:
