Root, Recovery, and ROM for the Acer E350
The Acer E350, otherwise known as the Liquid Gallant, is one of those devices that sits squarely in the middle of the road. While more than capable of running Android 4.0.3, its specs aren’t really anything to write home about. This coupled with the fact that Acer’s devices aren’t particularly renowned for their developer support means that the E350 wasn’t given it’s own dedicated forum. That however has not stopped those with the device from providing it with that all important trio of root, recovery, and ROM that no device should be left without.
XDA Forum Member jaapstreepjan posted a thread detailing exactly how to go about gaining root access and installing a custom CWM-based recovery to the E350, as well as a simple tweaked stock ROM to be flashed from your shiny new recovery. The ROM includes some enhancements such as Google Now, init.d support, and a less bloated /system partition among others. The root method is courtesy of XDA Forum Member Bin4ry, and the recovery via XDA Forum Member erlucky.

Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
