I guess I posted in the wrong spot, so I will post it here. Do we know the procedure for keeping the unlocked boot loader and custom recovery?

I haven't tried this as I'm running cm9 atm but, when I upgraded from the 009 to 012 leak I opened up the zip on my Linux box and took out the boot loader.blob file and any mentions of recovery in the zip, rezipped as update.zip and flashed through cwm, keeping my bootloader and cwm intact

Again I haven't tried this as I'm waiting to see if you can flash over the ics leaks/cm9

Thanks for the information. I am running CM9 also. I would like to test out the official rom for the touch screen fixes alone. Anyways, I guess we wait until someone tries it or we get the balls to try it ourselves.

I flashed this over the 1.0.12 leak and it is much better. Everything seems to work. The touchscreen is now fixed and random stutters are gone.

Looking in the Device information, this appears to be a release candidate? I see it says "RC3" in one of the image descriptions. Are we sure this is the release version? If not, it seems close enough anyway.

Went on a flashing binge today. Started with cm9 and cmw this morning. Flashed flexreaper r2 from cm9 with no problem.

Saw this release so I downloaded it. Open it with 7zip and removed the bootloader.blob . Used cmw to flash this and the zip without the bootloader. It flashed fined. However, it broke cmw. Once it finished installing, the power button will no longer work in cmw to select. Held down power button to shutdown and reboot. Came up fine with everything working. Reroot with zero null root method. Had to install superuser from market to get root to work probably though.

Tried to reinstall cmw recovery from ad but no luck. All you see when you go into recovery is the dead android with the red symbol. Luckily the touch recovery zero null posted works (ZN you are my hero on this forum).

Crossix's SD swap works fine in this update. Haven't played with it long enough to see of the touch pad issue is fixed.

You can probably go straight from cm9 but be aware that cmw recovery will be screwed up. I have not tried the Thor recovery so i don't know if that works.

Hope that helps somebody.

Edit. Looks like the touch pad issue is fixed. Shadow gun working properly now among other games.

I went from CM9 to this rip after removing the bootloader.blob and the recovery folder. I was using TWRP to begin with so I can't tell you if it messes with CWM or not. All went well, but I ended up going back to CM9. I missed a few of the little things the rom adds.

Whats the verdict on touch screen guys. There's an app called TouchUtil for testing. On HC and all other ICS the touch screen loses connection with your finger. The app will allow you to test this. Test needs to be done with tablet on a table or bed with just 1 finger on screen to test touch. Thanks guys

Heres the issue

I can confirm a few things..

The new Stock ICS rom (coming from a clean upgrade of HC) can be rooted using ZN's method...bootloader using ZN's method works perfect...and TeamWin Recovery works perfectly (so far)...

Is the camera error fixed?

And also, should i just flash this over the ICS leak (rename update.zip, boot into recovery, ect.) Or are there other steps I need to take first?

Thanks:)

    The decoded official version ICS for A100:
    Acer_AV041_A100_1.014.00_WW_GEN1

    Rename in update.zip. It is put through official recovery.

    Was wondering why we didn't get the Acer Ring and face unlock? I thought we will get Acer Ring with the official update.
