CyanogenMod is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 4.1 (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!

Code:
#include 
/*
 * 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

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.

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

Did you--
wipe:
 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!

No, read inside the brackets ;)

The "CWM Recovery 6.0.1.0 for A700" has broken build prop and will cause the device check to fail.

Actually, I did read inside the brackets, but the CWM in the mentioned thread is not a touch version, or so I thought, that's why I asked.

EDIT: Now I realised that we were talking about the exact same thread title.

Anyways, I will flash this one, give it a whirl and read twice or more next time.

Jeez, where is my mind...

Thanks again.

does anyone else get e:Can't mount /sdcard/ ?
cwm tells me can't mount sdcard and emmc but data, cache and system mount fine (backup even stores on the sdcard under cwm folder)

I'm getting the triangle of death after flashing the recovery in the OP...

I had the other CWM you posted in the other thread which the tablet seemed to boot into just fine.

i'm running a a700 with the a701 rom from way back, is that my issue? :(

    Good news! I've just got my tablet back from repair (hopefully it won't break again). I don't have that much free time on my hand though, so please don't expect major improvements right away.

    EDIT: Another good news is that the new CM10 bootanimation will also come in a size format suitable for our high-res screen.

    Here's a temporary (and laggy) portrait mode fix by disabling transform hint. Push the apk to /system/app/
