    Lightbulb FIRST TRY... Edited system.img (KERNEL 2.6.36.3 only!!!)

    WARNING: ONLY USE THIS IF YOU HAVE A BACKUP OF YOUR /DEV/BLOCK/MMCBLK0P3 IF YOU DONT HAVE ONE YET, MAKE ONE BY USING THIS:


    IF FROM ADB:
    ADB SHELL
    SU
    IF=/DEV/BLOCK/MMCBLK0P3 OF=/SDCARD/SYSTEM.IMG

    IF FROM TERMINAL EMULATOR:
    SU
    IF=/DEV/BLOCK/MMCBLK0P3 OF=/SDCARD/SYSTEM.IMG

    THIS IS A FUNCTIONAL FILE SYSTEM, I AM WORKING ON A CUSTOM ROM WITHOUT HAVING TO HAVE THE BOOTLOADER UNLOCKED.

    THE ONLY THING THAT HAS CHANGED ON THIS SYSTEM.IMG IS THE BOOT ANIMATION (INSTEAD OF "ANDROID" IT HAS THE HONEYCOMB BEE) AND THE FONT HAS CHANGED ALSO...

    AGAIN, THIS IS JUST A TEST, IT IS THE FULL FILE SYSTEM TO BE USED ON A DAILY BASIS BUT DOES NOT HAVE ANY OPTIMIZED FILES AT THIS TIME.



    Alright, now that you have read the warning... download this file here:
    LINK = MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service = LINK

    You can then push the file through ADB by typing:

    dd if=/sdcard/blk0p3_sys.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p3

    Post if it worked for you or if it did not, this will help me troubleshoot...

    PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR FILES FIRST!!! THIS FILE IS BASED ON USA MODEL 1.104.05_GEN1 ACER A500. I RECOMMEND TO TRY ONLY IF YOU HAVE HAD TO UNBRICK YOUR TABLET BEFORE. I DONT WANT TO MESS UP YOUR TABLET!!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!! JEJEJE



    Please post if it has worked for you or if it glitched, I am currently in trial and error so... my tablet gets bricked 1-3 times a day because I am testing different things on the system images... hopefully, I can find a way to have root on the image or at least include:
    1. File manager
    2. ROOT or at least the Gingerbreak.apk already installed.
    3. Terminal emulator
    4. Custom background upon boot


    As stated, it works for me but I have only 1 tablet so if you are daring enough, please dont hessitate to help me in getting this up and running...

    I AM NOT A DEVELOPER SO PLEASE BARE WITH ME AS I AM TRYING TO LEARN AS I GO... JEJEJE
