Thank you for this. I am already rooted using your easy method, but I am sure this will be a lot of help to many others.

Большое спасибо.

Light mod stock firmware ICS for A101

Acer_AV041_A101_0.004.00_WW_GEN1-root.zip

It is flash through CWM or TWRP Recovery.

Changes:
Official bootloader removed
Updating to official recovery is disabled
Rooted
Added app: ES Explorer and Superuser
All the rest is left without changes.

Thanks a lot for this, however, I'd rather try the actual leak file for now (not really bothered about my bootloader etc, which I unlocked but never got around to flashing a custom recovery).

I've found the original Russian forum, and the original leak file, but the instructions really aren't being translated very well by Google... There seem to be 4 update files in the archive, should they all be flashed, one after the other?

Hi I tried using the steps below to flash, no luck going to ICS.

Anything i might be doing wrong, i change each of the 4 files to update.zip and flashed it one by one, rebooting after each flash.

Flashing through official recovery:

1. Download this archive. Unpack it. The archive contains 4 files numbered in the order of updating.
2. Rename update1.zip in update.zip and place it on the SD card. Flashing through official recovery.

Thanks for the replies, I manage to get the update to ICS using CWM method, and almost bricking it, because I was on HC.

But all is good now. Thanks again

Any new ICS leaks

Hi, I am just curious if there will be any custom ICS roms for the A101 in the near future, or more leaks

Thank you

    It still shows up as HC 3.2.1 with wallpaper and desktop settings still intact
    You can look here:
    Applications -> Setting -> About tablet -> Build number - firmware version?

    I had that initially. The actual ICS ROM is in update4.zip. You MUST do each one in turn. If you don't get the update, you did it wrong.
