1. put a stock system.img.gz in the system_image folder
2. in my toolkit choose root, as if the system.img.gz was a rooted one

I'm so struggling today....sorry :(

Where do I find the system_image folder...I can't find it???

Also, do I need to take the word 'stock' out of the front of the name... stock.system.img.gz??

Again...sorry for my obvious noob questions

For the 810 KK update: it has two parts, the first is another JB update, wich prepares the tab for KK, Ehen u have this one, u should get another (over 200 MB, the first is just 1xxmb big) one wich is the real KK update. But mine just showing that the update service is unreachable (yes-completely unrooted)

I was on RV27RC03 WWGEN1 and downloaded the file (wich i uploaded a half year ago :D entonjackson addad it as stock image) and "rooted" it with prerooted Image. (/!\ You must have PTP mode enabled, with mtp i failed everytime) and it unrooted, but i cant get the update. (Error 1004) After a factory reset the update worked. Now Im on JB RV31_RC03_WW_GEN1. The Kitkat update must come soon for WWGEN1, because on some other Region Codes it rolled out already :)

I have tried to download the stock image twice in the last 2 hours and both times it fails in the middle of the download...

Are there any other mirrors?
Are there any known problems at the moment with MEGA @entonjackson?

Any other help appreciated in advance...thanks guys :)

Unrooting

The stock image is shared on uptobox ;) (at least the rv27 wwgen1 one)

Sorry...it's uptobox that keeps crashing mid download.

What do you need exactly, the Acer Tool Kit or what?

What i need is the stock system.img.gz for the A1-810 - RV27RC03_WW_GEN1

Can't wait to update to KK! And if they plan to drop support, I wish they'd just give us the tools to unlock the bootloader :'(

I'd really like to see L on this tablet, but I doubt they'd release it for us when it gets officially released

So which build number is the one with Kitkat for the A1-810? :confused: Also since I have the PA CUS version, can I install the WW version or just the PA CUS?
Actually the real question is how can i completely unroot? I have build RV26RC06_PA_CUS1

    Only use these methods if you are sure the device cannot be rooted using a custom recovery from the following thread:
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/andr...ax-b1-t2875894

    Intel based devices will not be supported ever by this toolkit! Only Mediatek chips are supported!

    At the moment the following features are available:
    • Root from scratch (Unix only / recommended)
    • Root with prerooted Image (see Download links at the bottom)
    • Unroot
    • Swap External <-> Internal SD
    • Odex ROM

    FAQ

    Q: I'm stuck inside a bootloop after rooting!!!11
    A1: The system.img.gz you applied, wasn't suiting to the firmware version installed on your tablet. Download latest Acer firmware update ( !!! if available !!!), copy it on a micro sd card, plug it into your Iconia, go to recovery by holding Volume up and Power button while device is turned off. Then choose apply update from sd card.
    A2: If you cannot apply any Acer firmware, because you always get a partition error while installing, you should do a reboot after you get the error. A user reported that this made her/his device boot into Android again, showing the new version in settings -> info. Good luck
    A3: If your device is really bricked you could try bring it back to life. Here you find help: link1, link2, link3, link4 (many thanks to Gilly10, drmad and Hamza91)
    A4 (B1-A71, B1-710, B1-711 only): Unbrick
    A5: If the A1 - A4 didn't help. Send back the device to Acer. Tell them you tried to apply an update from sd card and ended up in this bootloop. Sending device back to Acer over UPS is free. Good luck!

    Q: Successfully rooted, but still no root after rebooting!
    A: Have you installed Superuser App from Google Play Store?
    (B1-A71 only)Q: Cannot update, always getting ERROR: - Invalid partition setting; 17: fat 238e8000:888e8000; Instalation aborted.
    A: Download "Invalid Partition Error" Patch.
    (B1-A71 only)Q: I applied update from RV05RC05 to RV05RC06 but still it shows RV05RC05.
    A: There is no RV05RC06. It is the RV05RC05. It got on Acers Download section with a RV05RC06 named zip file. But the content is 100% equal to RV05RC05.
    Q: Toolkit fails or crashes for any reason and I don't know what to do.
    A: Run it again with parameter -d, e.g.: toolkit.exe -d and post the entire output here.
    Q: Root from scratch on Linux doesn't work because of Error message: 'No such file or directory bin/posix/64/adb'
    A: sudo apt-get install ia32-libs libstdc++6 libgcc1 zlib1g libncurses5 libsdl1.2debian
    Q: Can i flash a custom recovery?
    A: No, because bootloader is locked. You would brick your tablet.
    Q: Are there Custom ROMs?
    A: No, see answer above.
    Q: Is my data wiped during root?
    A: No.
    Q: Do i lose root after factory reset or wipe date?
    A: No.
    Q: I get an error in Engineer mode entering telnet command.
    A: If Swiftkey is installed / enabled try settings Google AOSP Keyboard as default.
    Q: How can I start telnet server manually?
    A: Try this.



    What you can do with root:

    Apply Supercharger V6 by zeppelinrox and significally speed up your tablet! [My small How-To]
    Install Adaway, an ad-blocker for webbrowsers and apps containing ads.
    Install ROM Toolbox and customize boot screen and other funny things.
    Install Titanium Backup to Backup, Freeze, Uninstall any App and more.
    Install Datasync to sync app data like save states between rooted devices.


    What you can NOT do with root on these devices:

    Change DPI
    Flash Custom Recoveries
    Flash Custom ROMs

    Ok, got the tab. I'm setting every thing up (USB drivers, ADB, finding where USB damiliarebugging is etc). I fired-up the tool and went through some steps to get familiar with it, then a question popped in my head: The choices are "root" "unroot" etc so to "root from scratch" do i select "root"? Do i still move the prerooted image into the folder or not? I'm confused cause i seam to have read somewhere that the tool can read the image on the tab, fix it, then rewrite it back to the tab (i may be totally mistaken).

    Basically, what does "root from scratch" mean? is the same as "root" in the tool?

    Again, Thanks in advance.

    2013-12-05 UPDATE

    Since it's already version 0.8.1, user can finish root procedure and R/W Workaround automatically with the latest toolkit for A1-810, A1-811. My instructions for R/W Workaround may be no longer needed.

    Even there's a system.img.gz for your device, I still suggest you do root from scratch by yourself to prevent any problem.

    OK, let's get started

    Q:The choices are "root" "unroot" etc so to "root from scratch" do i select "root"?

    A:When you open toolkit.sh in linux, choose A1-810->root->There will be two choices, one is root from scratch, and the other one is root from prerooted system.img.gz. You should only move system.img.gz to the system_image folder if you have one, root from scratch does not require system.img.gz in system_image folder.

    Q:Basically, what does "root from scratch" mean? is the same as "root" in the tool?

    A:There are two ways to perform root in this toolkit. First is root from scratch, this will take files directly from your device and root it. After the toolkit puts an su into it, it will put the files back to your device so your tablet gets root permission(Of course you have to install supersu for sure). If it's root from prerooted system.img.gz, it means you use others system.img.gz made by root from scratch, which you can just download it for toolkit, and gets root permission by it.

    Can you give me your device's version information, so I can give you some help. You can find it in "about tablet". Seems like you are already using Linux. You can use the system.img.gz made by others if you have the same version on device. A prerooted system.img.gz will both work for windows and linux, follow the instructions below. Root from scratch only availiable for Linux, follow the For Linux section. I highly suggest you to read the R/W fix part first, so you can use most of the root required apps without problems.

    First of all, do you have the same version of system.img.gz in your device's "about tablet". If you do have the same version, download the system.img.gz and put it into the "system_image" folder. With the system.img.gz, you can easily root under windows.

    For Windows:
    First thing first, download the system.img.gz you need and put it into system_image folder.

    1.Download the latest toolkit then open the toolkit.exe

    2.Choose A1-810

    3.Choose Root

    4.Follow the toolkit's instructions and finish root

    5.Unplug till the root opertion is finished.

    If there's no same version of system.img.gz compare to your device, do the root under Linux. I myself used Lubuntu with Oracle VM VirtualBox.


    For Linux:
    1.Open a terminal

    2.Type "sudo su"

    3.Type "chmod 777 your toolkit.sh" Example: chmod 777 /root/toolkit.sh

    4.Type "your toolkit.sh" Example: /root/toolkit.sh

    5.Choose "A1-810"

    6.Choose "Root from scratch"(Or choose Root from prerooted system.img.gz if you have it. It's the same as Windows. Remember to put system.img.gz into system_image folder)

    7.Follow the toolkit's instructions and finish root

    8.Unplug till the root opertion is finished.

    The toolkit's version is now 0.7.6, and R/W Workaround feature is now fixed again. With 0.7.6, users don't have to apply R/W Fixes by themselves. Use 0.7.4 instead if users want to perform root safer. The followings were done with toolkit 0.7.4, lubuntu, A1-811. This will also work for A1-810(Thanks to treetop777)

    In order to make a system.img.gz with R/W fix, follow these instrutions

    You can only do the followings when you are performing root from scratch. If you're using root from prerooted system.img.gz, download the ones with R/W Workaround. If there's no system.img.gz for you, follow the instructions and make one by yourself.

    First of all, cancel the operation of the toolkit when it's copying system.img.gz back to your tablet. We don't have to finish the whole operation yet.

    Download the su.tgz https://docs.google.com/file/d/0Bz5DDMjsS0KMdHpvbEk3Y1ZNVDA/edit?usp=sharing

    1.Open a terminal under Linux

    2.type "sudo su", you may have to type your password here.

    3.type "gzip -d your system.img.gz Example:gzip -d /root/toolkit/system.img.gz(if your system.img.gz is under /root/toolkit)", now you have your system.img

    4.type "mkdir /mnt/a1(mkdir means make a folder, so here it means I make a folder named a1 under /mnt)"

    5.type "mount -o loop your system.img /mnt/a1 Example: mount -o loop /root/toolkit/system.img /mnt/a1"

    6.Place the su.tgz under any folder (In this example I put my su.tgz under /root)

    7.back to terminal, and type "cd /mnt/a1; tar zxvf your su.tgz Example: cd /mnt/a1; tar zxvf /root/su.tgz"

    Edit, thanks to fREAST0
    7.5. type "chmod 6755 /mnt/a1/xbin/su; chmod 6755 /mnt/a1/bin/su"

    8.type "cd /root; umount /mnt/a1"

    9.type "gzip -9v your system.img Example: gzip -9v /root/toolkit/system.img", now you have your system.img.gz back.

    10.Congradulations, you have a system.img.gz with R/W Workaround now, put it back into /system_image and root from prerooted system.img.gz, finish the opertion and you device will be rooted.

    2013-10-23 Update

    If users are facing problems even if you have R/W Workaround, try to delete or rename the /system/bin/su to make the /system/xbin/su work. I'm not quite sure, but my root permission is working fine without /system/bin/su and I can update my su binary with supersu.
