Dear acer a501's users, I read many posts about this build and A501, but now I'm a bit confused. Can someone write a summary of what kind and version of bootloader should I flash to use this last build JB-MR1(4.2) - v13 ?
Now I tryed some bootloader and system builds, with older versions my tablet will boot without problems, but with these lasts build it go in bootloop
My last few attempts have been with bootloader skrilax v8 and v9, with image 4.2-v13 and 4.1-v28. In all cases it goes in bootloop
Where did I go wrong?
Thank you all for the help!
I'll try to help you
Mine was A501 everything stock before flashing, OS was ICS, bootloader ver 0.3.14 (You can check your bootloader by downloading Acer Recovery Installer) from the Google Apps.
1)Root your device. For ICS, it can very easily done with this link (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthr ... ?t=1546593
) by follow the instruction and download the right file
2)Obtain your SBK number of your device. Step 3 in this link. (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthr ... ?t=1622425
). Very important.
3)Next, get an unlocked bootloader. If your bootloader is ver 0.3.13 or 0.3.12 and below, you might wnana try the method in this link (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthr ... ?t=1622425
4)Follow method in this link (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthr ... ?t=2400673
) please navigate to post #4, about the "babsector.rar" content. Follow the small instruction box there commented by other user.
5)You should now have a rooted and unlocked bootloader.
6)Next download the ROM installed and GAPPS file from this thread, BOOT into recovery (By now you should see a custom recovery) and install the files from sdcard. Install rom first then gapps.
You have now a fully customized A501. Hehehehehehehe...
