NOTE:This will be the last release of my hand , personal stuff like kids and wife are the most important thing in my life.
I hope you enjoy my creations and some of you may continue what I started.
I would like to thank THOR for all his help and a place like this.

Please wipe dalvik and cache , there have been structural changes in the rom !R9 base has no CRT animation and % battery any more due to the browser FC but there is still a mod available for crt animation and % battery but then you will have the FC on browser when using the "search on page" option.Circel Battery% mod andd crt animation for stock look if you can live with the bug in the browser: R9-CRT-Battery-mod-stock-lookINSTALLATION NOTE:
This is base rom ,form this one you start and add what you want ,
First you flash the base rom and reboot ! Then you go back into recovery and first flash the 3G if you want it and then the THEME mods.
There is no flashplayer installed in the rom , you can download latest from the market or if you want HULU you use the HULU installer.
People coming from FLEXSTRIKER R4 don't need to wipe anything , only need to install what they want , if yo already got HULU installed no need to reinstall it if you don't wipe data.
Market is 3.17 but will auto update to 3.4.4 after you used the market a few times
FLEXSTRIKER-R9.5 & R9.6 3Gusb support installer
You flash this over the BASE ROM , now you can use 3Gusb Huawei dongle and send text messages , mms app and 3Gusb restarter is also installed.
Energy tip: Not using 3G , put airplane mode on and wifi on if you need it , if you don't do that tablet keeps searching for mobile network.
HULU installer (mirror2)
You flash this over the base ROM . (thanks to Williamfold)
This installs a modified flashplayer 11.1 that alows to play HULU and it installs the HULU+app.
You can remove the HULU flashplayer from apps like any app , don't update the HULU flashplayer true market , you will get error or you lose HULU support.
FLEXSTRIKER ID changer to G100W ( if you want that your tablet is recognized as a PackardBell G100W , by default it is A500)
(flash with cwm after you flashed the rom)

Default app manager
Games: NFS ; LetsGolf ;Simcity deluxFlexspeed addON's with default icons (if you want more default system apps)FLEXSTRIKER-R8-R9-addON-FLASHER-release2 -Change in how to use , please read instructions.
-No more color icons , sorry to much work , maybe I upload just the icons and you can use a folder orginazer to use them.How it works:
-First download the "FLEXSTRIKER-R8-addON-FLASHER"
-In the addON-FLASHER all the apps are pressent so you need to delete the ones you don't want to have.
-You can open it (don't unzip) with winrar or something simular , go to system/app , there you find all the apps.
-Delet the ones you don't want and put the addON-FLASHER on your tablet and flash with cwm - reboot.
Apps that are in the "system APPS for use with addON-FLASHER"
3DPhotoBrowser/Acersync/AcerDNLA/Acerclockwidget/ApinAP/Aupeo/Books/AgendaWidge/calculator/ClearFI/DTG(documents to go full)/Dualclock/gameloft/ICSClock/LinkToFacebook/nemoplayer(acermediaplayer)/SocialJogger/TegraZone/WeatherWidget/XT9/Zinioreader.
(remember , some apps need a other app to work , example: clearfi needs acerDNLA)
If the connection won't start use the 3Grestarter or when you put the 3Gusb in after boot ALWAYS use the 3Grestarter.(3gusb icon turns blue in notification bar and mobile settings will be available in settings)
It is possible you need to change APN settings in the mobile settings.
(I got a Huawei E1552 and it is working supurb)
Had to follow this tutorial to make my 3G dongle ready :setting up your 3Gusb dongle
-Dont want 3G (and the sim card message) , you can delete the 3Grestarter app and mms app from system /apps without any problems.

-Polaris Office bug fixed when opening word or pdf document.
-2New wallpapers in Base rom-SwitchMe is added in data ,
very nice and good app for having multiple accounts on your tablet .What you can do with this app:Privacy -
the most obvious benefit is that you can securely share one device among multiple users, which gives you privacy and peace of mind.E-reading -
whenever you want to read on your tablet but dont want any notifications or need any connectivity, just switch to an ereader profile.Testing -
if you are a developer, you can use profiles as clean sandboxes to test your applications and their interaction with the system.Gaming –
with multiple installations of Android on a single device, you can now play online MMOs as different characters.Speed -
the games your kids play slow down your tablet, but with SwitchMe you can easily create profiles without games or instant messengers.Battery life -
when the battery is low but there are important emails or documents to edit later, switch to a profile which only contains these essentials.Warning for users:
Its critical to understand that incorrect use of this application can potentially harm your device. This can happen if you create and switch to a profile that
exceeds the available memory – switching into this profile will cause a boot loop as Android attempts to unsuccessfully build the Dalvik cache.
Before proceeding with use we strongly recommend that you perform a full nandroid backup through recovery.
UNOFFICIAL A2SD SOLUTIONS ARE NOT SUPPORTED, USE AT YOUR OWN RISK
The Dev of this app contacted me to put this app on my rom with the promise of 100% support .Support for this app can be found and asked here:SwitchMe support18-feb-2012:[/glow]

BIG thanks to Williamfold , Vache , ezterry ,Crypted , THOR .This rom was tested by 8 differend people and they did not had any problems with it . (xda app FC is the only thing , but if that is rom releated I don't think so , possible that some other random app don't work , but I don't feel like testing every app on the market. If you know any OS that is 100% stable please show it to me)
Please follow instal instructions !!!!!!!!!!!! BIG thanks to my testers : Biggzz ; iamtek7 ; Rainbowbright081 ; fgcchevy ; The.Yield ; manu33xtro ; garbagecanman .
Again I'm a noob at these linux things , and I'm planning on staying a noob , it's just I like to mess around for my own rom and I wan't to share it with anyone that likes it.
I almost bricked my tab testing this rom but he that is the price you have to pay , lucky for me I always got a backup so people always take a nandroid backup !!!
Civato 2012 the mixer. Family and friends come first !!!!!
