Easy, fast rom

Postby scphill34 » 11 Aug 2016, 03:43

I need some help, can anyone suggest a rom that is easy for a newbie. I primarily use internet, word processing, you tube and playing music. My A500 is in need of some upgrading, I am tired of ICS.

Hello,

I guess you would like to have on of the latest ROMs installed. Then I would suggest you look through this topics.

OmniROM 5.1.1 A500/A501 - V12 Final:
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1690

CM12.1 5.1.1 A500/A501 - V7 Final:
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1859

Be aware that the installation is not that trivial. There are some pits to fall in ;).

For Example:
- Use the right/latest Recovery Boot Image; [BETA]TWRP based recovery REV 2.0 beta4 --> viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1490

- I also had trouble while running the installer of the ROM when choosing the extras like Acer Print, Kernel.org Wifi driver and legacy PlayStore.

- It was important for me to format file system with the type of f2fs. This is because of the PlayStore had trouble to download and or install apps with error 927.

- At last you need to be aware of the right rooting software which a link can be found at the beginning of the topics..

All the information is spread in the topics mentioned before.

What ROM to take is up to you. I have started a topic about it here:
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=2385

Good Luck and Thank you.

Greetings Dr.Allcome
