Touch Enabled Amon Ra Recovery Ported to Acer Iconia A500

Users of the Acer Iconia A500 tablet have had ClockworkMod Recovery for their flashing needs for awhile now and it has done quite well as expected for the famous and widely used recovery.

However, more is always better and it’s in that spirit that XDA Senior Member drillisdee has compiled Amon Ra Recovery for the Acer Tablet so its users could have a choice. The Recovery is packed with a lot of useful features including:

Touch enabled UI
Can use usb flash drive or normal sdcard as sdcard to flash roms and to use in nandroid backup/restore.
Automatically runs itsmagic on boot
External sdcard mass storage works on iconia
Automatically backs up usb serial (uuid) and the start of mmcblk0 in nandroid backup.
Will not remove /data/media unless full ext wipe option is selected (off by default)

ADB as root user

USB-MS Toggle :mounts sdcard as mass storage

The Recovery can also be flashed two ways. One is via ADB using the program itsmagic and the other is a handly, much easier ClockworkMod flashable zip.

If you’d like to check out the touch enabled recovery, you can head on over to its original thread for the download links to both methods, installation instructions and a full list of menu options and features.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
