Is it possible to do a this from the tablet , using a file explorer? Or would I need to use another computer? Last time when I got the leak I used my laptop to download the leak and put it on the SD card, but I can't do that now.
I'm planning on flashing this over the other leak.

Yes it's possible, if you don't have custom recovery and unlocked bootloader.Just download the archive on the tab and rename it to update.zip, then move it ot /mnt/sdcard/ and boot as the same way when you flash the leaked version.

I didn't tinker with the tab other than the leak, so I should be ok with the Bootloader stuff! Thanks! :D

Awesome. I downloaded it on the tab, but it on the SD card, and it works flawlessly so far. Worth about 30 minutes of work! Things feel alot smoother, and Angry birds FINALLY works, scrolling though pages is easy now, and the browser feels faster :) great :D

So, if I want to return to pure stock, I just apply this on stock recovery? I saw a thread where someone posted a thread with stock recovery. Just wanted to know before I brick this thing by accident.

Question2, can I flash this in twrp if I wanted a one shot trip back to stock?

Flashing this in twrp is asking to brick. Only flash stock ROMs on stock recovery.

Now I am glad that I used the stock recovery download I found. Reverted to full stock and returned it. Now on an N7 and am liking the higher resolution display.

Can you post the instructions you fallowed to return to full stock? I have found a couple here in the forums but I find them all a bit too confusing. Thanks in advance.

I think all I did was to essentially:
1) flash the stock recovery in fastboot
2) flash the stock Rom zip by putting it on the root of an sd card as update.zip. Quick trip through the bootloader and you're almost done.
3) factory reset. I may have done this before step 2.

I really want too concerned if it had catastrophically failed, because I was returning it anyway. But it worked out ok.

hi guys.. i need some help here..

My iconia A100 acted crazy lately. Random restarts and after each restart most installed programs didn't start. My iconia was rooted months ago,but other than that no other change. I have tried to perform official updates but after downloaded each update the installation always failed.

I dowloaded the file from the first post,renamed it and placed it in the sd directory. I shut down the tablet and reopened it pressing also the volume button. it told me that upgrate has started and supposly finished (upgrading ups,etc),but the tablet can not complete the start up...it always reboots.a few times i got to the locked screen but when trying to unlock it ..restart again.

i am a noob in this area,can somebody guide me out of this?which actions and which programs should i download and run to make the iconia run again? when i downloaded this rom i thought it would solve my problems..but now i don't know what to do....

thnx in advance...

Edit: writing these lines from my mobile..the tablet started after hours trying..how can I ensure that the problem is fixed and this won't happen again..in next restart ?
edit2) it didn't last much. on an attempt to start an installed app,it crashed to restart...and a have cyclic restarts again... how can I solve this??

    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.

    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.
