Hi, guys. I tried this rom on my A500. It's great. With all the specific versions you guys told, I think everything I need is working:

Play Services (Beta)
Calendar
Chrome (49.0.2623.105)
Google
Hangouts
Maps (9.50.2)
Photos
YouTube

Thanks everyone!

Hi rhodan486, I suggest you do a fresh install. Please read my post and follow it entirely.... Your tablet will work OK again.
Please note that with this ROM version (5.1.1. V13) you must install GApps 5.1x pico from OpenGApps, the old GApps (5.0x) doesn´t work for me at all.
Hope it helps.
AxelTor.

Hi DavX, I don´t have an HDMI cable for my A50x, so I can´t test it.... maybe other user in this forum can help you.
Regards,
AxelTor.

hi everybody,
I am having Acer Iconia 500 since from the initial days of lunch. I installed Cyanogen Rom and everything was working well. Since about 2 months it is becoming weired. Browser and youtube stopped working. I did factory reset several times but in vain.
So I taught to install another ROM. I searched and landed in this forum.
I downloaded the above ROM. Did all wipes including system. Installed through TWRP. Everything went well. Tried to install gapps 5.0 but failed.

Then I booted the system. It showed '' Skrilax primary boot image'' and then it shows a screen '' tegraowners.com'' but not going beyond that screen.
I reinstalled with the same result.

Then I tried to reinstall cyanogen from backup. It also is stuck at ''Skrilax bootloader v8, Booting primary kernel image''.

I shall be extremely thankful if anybody come for help. I know this is an old thread but still I hope that somebody will help.

Thank you very much for your reply. But do you think that there is problem in the TWRP? I am already having TWRP recovery. Should I install This one?

I think you need Skrilax bootloader V9 too. Also check that the cache and data are formatted to fsf2 and not ext 4

yes it was reworked by thor to use on our tablets with his and other roms.
skrilax v8 is fine for bootloader
you will first need to do the formats as per N.Yu before proceeding with installation

Hi apple2005, as M.yu said, is a good idea to have the new Srylax V9... I´ve done a quickedit to my post (one page back) adding the suggestion of M.yu file sistem for data and cache (I´m a newbie hoping to help). I think if you follow my instructions completely you should get a fully functional and fun to use A500.
Please note you MUST install gaaps 5.1xx with this rom (V5.1.1), the old gaaps 5.0x doesn´t work for me at all on this fine rom, and don´t forget to do the "trick" to prevent autoupdate of google play services...
As a matter of fact, all my apps including play store, netflix, office, google maps, and so on still works on my A500!!.
Hope this helps.

try afterota.... Google it
If that doesn't work then maybe bad sector?.... I know you can use timmydeans euu and that will root it. Bu
t will also take it back to 3.2 honeycomb lol
I don't recommend euu unless you HAVE to..... It's hard on The ol' a500
If you use bad sector then make sure you have sbk and cpuid for your device...... U need cpuid in case something goes wrong.... It is the master key to your tablet.
About is for bad sector... Without it you won't be able to run it... And make sure to read instructions for bad sector
