I flashed this over rooted 4.010.10_GEN2 with Villain Kernel and it kept root and everything, as it should. :)

Looks like it updates the Flexrom, gyroscope, and wifi. See updater script below.

show_progress(0.400000, 0);
mount("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p3", "/system");
show_progress(0.200000, 0);
show_progress(0.200000, 10);
package_extract_dir("calibration", "/tmp/");
run_program("/system/bin/sh", "/tmp/calibration.sh");
unmount("/system");
show_progress(0.100000, 0);
package_extract_dir("EC", "/tmp/");
set_perm(0, 2000, 0755, "/tmp/EC_flash");
set_perm(0, 2000, 0755, "/tmp/ec.rom");
package_extract_file("flexrom.img", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p6");
mount("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p6", "/flexrom");
set_perm(1014, 1014, 04755, "/flexrom/fixwifi");
show_progress(0.100000, 0);
mount("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p8", "/data");
package_extract_file("apkinstaller.temp", "/data/media/apkinstaller.temp");
set_perm(0, 2000, 0755, "/data/media/apkinstaller.temp");
delete("/data/data/com.acer.android.dlna.services/databases/dlnacontent.db");
unmount("/data");
unmount("/flexrom");

Can anyone assist re this question regarding the "4.010.13" update. I received it OTA on 27th July and installed it same evening. Installation went fine with no problems including the fact (I think it has been mentioned above) that I did not unroot my A500, and at the conclusion of the update I was still fully rooted.

Looking at "Settings > About tablet > Build number" it shows "Acer_A500_4.010.13_COM_GEN2" which is what I would have expected it to look like. However if I look, in text view, at the system file "Build.prop" the following is shown in the initial lines, I have highlighted in RED what I feel is suspect and cannot understand i.e. why is it showing "4.010.01" etc.etc.

ro.build.id=HMJ37
ro.build.display.id=Acer_A500_4.010.01_COM_GEN2
ro.build.system.id=Acer_A500_4.010_COM_GEN2

ro.build.version.incremental=1309327721
ro.build.version.sdk=12
ro.build.version.codename=REL
ro.build.version.release=3.1
ro.build.date=Wed Jun 29 14:09:23 CST 2011
ro.build.date.utc=1309327763

ro.build.type=user
ro.build.user=hermit
ro.build.host=lion
ro.build.tags=release-keys
ro.build.sku=COM_GEN2
ro.product.model=A500
ro.product.brand=acer
ro.product.name=picasso_comgen2
ro.product.device=picasso
ro.product.board=picasso

Any help with sugestions re this will be gratefully appreciated - I accept the fact that I may be p****** into the wind on this and that the above script is as it should be.

Thanks. for some reason the OTA that I downloaded on the tab failed at every attempt, but your decrypted one went right in via recovery.

Yea I got it. Here's the update.

Everything is as it should be :) for instance, when i was on 1.141.07 my build.prop stated 1.141.01. In other words, that's normal, mine is the same way

My install log seems to have indicated a possible fix for the accelerometer (/tmp/GyroGain /tmp/calibration_wrong referenced in the update log @ end)

Yes, it did modify the accelerometer's calibration, as well as update the flexrom and implement the wifi patch. There are several threads already about this update, with all this information, and in a few of them I discussed my findings in ripping apart the update.

one thing I pointed out in the thread about the different naming conventions of the different codetrains is that Acer is very lazy when it comes to updating build.prop

You can edit the build.prop to show whatever build date you want....

No matter what rom I looked at I saw region US

Is this the latest build for retail U.S. devices or us there something newer that can be manually flashed? Thanks in advance for any useful info.

That is both unnecessary and ill advised.this is not laziness, but rather by design: it helps prevent fragmentation.maybe this can help explain:

As you may be aware, the purpose of a build.prop is to provide a version number so applications and such can keep track of compatibility. By keeping it as a single number for ask similar software versions, it helps prevent fragmentation.
