Here's an updated version from my earlier patch of thor's 1.7 recovery for the A510. This one has the proper mapping for the data partition (mmcblk0p10). I set the version number as 1.7b.

To recap:
Thor's 1.7 cwm recovery repacked with A510 stock kernel. itsmagic is disabled. overclocking does not work, since it's a stock kernel.

This is exactly the same as the one I repacked for the A200, but with the A510 stock recovery kernel and edited the kernel string to show when it boots. And also changed the fstab for /data to use mmcblk0p10.

You MUST unlock your bootloader before flashing this.

You can rename it to recovery.img and put it on your microsd card and use Acer Recovery Installer to flash it. Or you can use the following command in a terminal emulator or adb shell.
Code:
dd if=thor_recovery17b_A510.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p1
Give it a try and see if it works.

Cheers!

WARNING: If you downloaded the link I posted earlier that has MD5 of 1ded94b4b4f0522ca14b7070146d9a49, DO NOT USE IT! Download 1.7b above instead.

Edit: Updated to 1.7c to fix some mounting issues.

Updated OP with new image to fix some reported mounting issues. Please give this a try. Also remember, that I do not have this device, so I rely on you guys to let me know what doesn't work. So far, the only feedback i've gotten is from NoThrills (Thanks buddy).

LOL... And there I was fixing it myself this afternoon :) I think we both noticed that 1 line that was missing in the fstab ;)

You must have the ability to send adb commands to the tablet.

adb reboot-bootloader
fastboot oem unlock

Then follow the on screen instuctions very quickly.

Brother,
Is the above applicable to A500 OTA ICS 4.0.3 bootloader?

I thought this version of thors recovery was not GPL compliant. If it is not be careful, the angry hordes will decend on this thread and you will get banned. Even mentioning of the name of thor is enough to cause you grief.....oh wait, its recovery, not his rom, so those who have a bone to pick turn a blind eye...carry on.

If this is based on the work of a banned developer then I'm afraid we do not wish for it to be posted here.

I'd suggest taking an alternative recovery to amend.
