Source-Built Jelly Bean for the Acer Iconia A100

As the proverbial wave of Jelly Bean crashes against the shores of XDA, more devices are popping up with AOSP builds seemingly every day. We brought you news of the Acer Iconia A500 getting the first JB AOSP ROM which was released mere hours after the source was released. Now, the older sibling of the A500, the Acer Iconia A100 receives a piece of Jelly Bean ASOP goodness as well.

The initial builds of Jelly Bean for the A100 were actually SDK ports from the A500. After source was released, XDA Senior Member pio_masaki, with the help of some others, have made the switch over to source-built, and the A100 is well on its way to having stable Jelly Bean. When the initial port was released, it was pretty rough with a lot of things not working. In a few short days, however, the ROM has gained a lot of stability. Currently, the only things not working are:

Camera
Gallery
Sound (kind of)

Since tablet users don’t typically use their cameras, that makes this ROM pretty solid for anyone who wants to use it as a daily driver for the time being. Rest assured, though, that the bugs will likely get fixed, so expect this to be a perfectly solid build in the near future.
