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 th. . . READ ON »

Tablets often present a conundrum for many users. While most tablets feature internal storage of 16GB or 32GB, there are some out there with 8 GB or less. And when you’re using that internal storage for your apps, music, movies, and more; it can get full pretty quickly. Many tablets simply run out of space, and even those with expandable storage like the Acer Iconia A100 would be better off using external storage as internal storage.
This is a problem that XDA Senior Member crossix, who’s brought other interesting developments to the Iconia A100 before, is aiming to fix with a mod that switches the internal and external storage. While the mod itself is relatively easy to apply, there is a warning . . . READ ON »

Device tear downs can be the difference between a user fixing their device and simply selling it at way beneath its value for spare parts. Additionally, some tear downs have even helped fix long standing problems with other devices. However, at the end of the day, sometimes it’s just fun to take something apart and see what makes it tick. For users of the Acer Iconia A100, not only do you now have a guide for fixing a broken microphone module, but also a pretty thorough guide to tearing the device itself down.
XDA Forum Member Metallica 4 Life has taken some time to tear down the Iconia A100 when a microphone module broke and needed replacement. With all the screen shots and proper tools listed, the user not only c. . . READ ON »

With Team Win updating their new recovery to include a touch interface and new features to what has been dubbed TWRP 2, developers for devices that weren’t initially supported have been working on making the new touch recovery a part of their device’s repertoire. While most haven’t received the touch enabled awesomeness just yet, those carrying the Acer Iconia A100 have, and they can flash it immediately.
XDA Senior Member ZeroNull has ported the now popular touch recovery to the Iconia A100, which makes it the second Iconia tablet to receive the touch recovery after its cousin, the A500. The recovery, which is actually based on the A500 version, is relatively easy to install. However, . . . READ ON »

Acer keeps on making its way into the hands of people by trying to release newer models with different characteristics of their up and coming Iconia tab series. The A100 made its debut not too long ago, and it seems to be a more economical version of its bigger brother. The tab sports a 7 inch screen as opposed to the 10.1 inch that its big brother has. It also carries a Tegra 2 processor, 1 GB or RAM, Honeycomb 3.2, and it comes in 8 GB and 16 GB versions, which is unusual to see in a tab. Other than that, the specs are pretty much up to par with other tabs of its kind. However, it is worth mentioning that there are not too many tabs at 7 inch that are loaded with 3.2, so this is a bit of a breakthrough in a market where the smaller sized t. . . READ ON »
