Everything good even though I was scared to death but the tablet is working fine, however almost every apk that I try gives me a "chrome has stopped", "game x has stopped", "youtube has stopped" "app store has stopped". The weird thing I was able to make whatsapp work just fine using the talkatone app and whatsapp those are working fine.

    Am I missing something like a super user or something to install the app store and be able to install youtube and games from there? this super basic table is for my son but since the stock version is really old and unstable I went to flash it thinking that it would be better and in performance is really nice but is not usable if I'm not able to install the basic stuff.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.
    There was something about Play Services not working well and forcing close apps. I would recommed you trying using the ROM without gapps and finding alternatives to some apps, like Uptodown to downlad apps, Firefox or another browser, etc.

    I think that development for this tablet finnished.

    Thank you for the answer, I will try later at home a google play services version that I found on the net that supposedly might help with this. I'll reply back and if someone else wants to jump in on this if they know more about how to tackle this with this old tablet would be great!

    I tried Google Play services and just closes out and chrome states that Unfortunately had to be closed. I downloaded superSu and install it to see if that made a change but no. Any ideas how can I get the Google play Services and Google Play Store loaded on this tablet?

    Thanks.

    Well, I actually downloaded the Gapps and that made a significant difference. Most of the time the app store works but sometimes it closes but that's better than nothing also youtube now works so that's cool. Thanks.

    The Team 'IconiaHD' is proud to present a new ROM for your Acer A500 or A501 tablet.

    This small team is composed of:
    - HenrikE: A200 owner, responsible for an unofficial CM-10.2 build for the A200
    - Doume: A200 owner, experienced linux developer
    - macia10: A501 owner, tester


    We have now modified our sources to support also the A500!


    Why Omnirom, and not Cyanogenmod ?
    Google , through AOSP repository, has dropped support for the Tegra 2 platform. The Tegra 2 does not support the 'neon' instruction set, and more importantly relies on a set of old (ICS) proprietary hardware libraries. AOSP has dropped support for both non-neon devices and the older hardware libraries.

    Cyanogenmod has decided to follow AOSP on this and has dropped Tegra 2 support since CM-10.2. With CM-10.2 the differences were not yet very big and could be overcome. But with CM-11 it has become an unreasonably large effort to add Tegra 2 support.

    Only Omnirom, for now, has included the forward-ported code in its repository to support machines like Acer A500


    How to install

    Recovery
    To flash this rom, it's necessary to have a recent recovery (at least CWM 6.0.4.4 or TWRP 2.6.3.1) having Selinux capabilities.
    Otherwise the flash operation fails with status 0 or status 7. There are also some problems installing GApps with Thor's recovery v.1.8.1.
    We recommend using CWM 6.0.4.5 by nelsontky: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2583710

    Flashing
    Boot in recovery mode to flash the KitKat Rom.
    First, don't forget to execute a 'Wipe Data/Factory reset'
    Flash the KitKat Rom
    Flash the Minimal Gapps
    Do a 'wipe cache partition'
    Flash the SuperSU zip file if you need it
    Flash the Netflix fix if you need it

    And reboot System !

    Be patient on first boot... There's a lot of background work to do, before coming to the 'Welcome' screen. Don't worry if you are stuck with a black screen for several minutes. Next boot will be much faster.
    After first configuration, it's recommended to reboot the tablet to avoid some unstabilities after 1st boot.

    Enjoy KitKat !

    NOTE: This is an untested build! If you try it, please report back on how it runs! The A501 version probably has the same stability problems as earlier builds, but please feel free to test it. It's at least possible that some update of the OmniROM sources has helped.

    GApps are here:
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2397942
    For the A200 the Pico package is the only one that is small enough so we generally recommend that. The A500 has more space in the system partition and should be able to use the larger packages as well.


    SuperSU is here: (needed only if you wish to have a full rooted access)
    SuperSU is needed for root, get the latest CWM flashable zip from here:

    Netflix fix for builds 1-4 (not needed for build 5) is here: netflixfix.zip
