    Full root for A500/501 ICS 4.0.3[LEAK]. Simple methods.

    WARNING! By going ahead with this process you acknowledge that you are doing this at your own risk and you will not hold me or this site responsible for any damage you may cause to your device.

    Original article is published over at XDA Developers and created by ZeroNull and vdsirotkin (4pda.ru), I just copied and pasted here for everyone's benefit so please give them your thanks

    For A500 and A501 ICS[LEAK] firmware.

    How to:
    1. The tablet should be already upgraded to stock ICS for A50x (or stock ICS A10x/A510 for other tablets).
    2. Download THIS archive on the computer. Unpack it to any place.
    3, On a tablet: "Settings" -> "Applications" -> "Development" -> "USB debugging" switch on.
    4. Сonnect the tablet to the computer (Before connection it is recommended to update the driver for the tablet).
    5. Open the directory with the unpacked archive. Execute file: for windows - runit-win.bat; for Linux - runit-linux.sh.
    The root is received!
    6. Now you will have to install the following programs:
    SuperUser
    Titanium Backup

    ATTENTION!
    Don't install Busybox! It is already installed and established! If you reinstall it, some programs will become unable to access root permissions!

    Change:
    The error of final check of receiving root is corrected (The messaging that "root" isn't received, though it was not so)
    Support of A510 of tablets is improved

    This method uses the 'mempodroid' exploit and some workings out by ZeroNull and vdsirotkin (4pda.ru).


    PS: Command "Mount ro/rw" for directory /system (partition) - works perfectly!
    PS2: Sorry for the Russian language in the old executable file, the archive has been confused


    VVV///SECOND METHOD\\\VVV

    If I'm not mistaken this is supposed to work with it.

    What is your built number? Did you updated the drivers from the Acer site? Which drivers did you downloaded, there's two on the site? You should have the most recent one.

    I used the latest release. Interesting though, the application finishes without the drivers loaded, starting it is rooted. Does this meaning clearing and resetting?
