    Cool [PROG] Acer A510 Helper *UDPATE 5/20/2012*

    **************************
    Acer A510 Iconia Tab AIO Toolbox
    **************************
    By: marlopainter

    UPDATED 5/23/2012 : v2.3.0

    COMPLETE OVERHAUL OF GUI AND COMMAND ISSUANCE


    See Changelog at the bottom.

    Inspired by: Bay_wolf's AIO Vibrant Toolbox 2.5


    THIS IS INSTALLED ON YOUR PC, NOT YOUR MOBILE DEVICE


    DISCLAIMER:
    This is a Work In Progress.
    I'm distributing this program as-is
    and make no guarantee that it will
    not hurt your device. So, use at your
    own risk and don't blame me for bricking
    your device. I am to not be held liable for
    any outcome of the use of this program.

    Options are tested personally on my A510.
    It is written in VB2010, NOT C,
    and you will need the Framework from MS.
    I use Windows 7 - 64 bit, so that's why.


    What is this:
    This program will do many of the tasks in a few clicks
    rather than opening command prompts, etc.
    The routines are ALL visible and OPEN for inspection.


    -IMPORTANT-
    This program uses the SendKeys commands available in VB.
    This means a window will open and the info will be "auto-typed" for you.
    You will clearly see all the commands I am sending to your device.
    DO NOT CLICK YOUR MOUSE AND CHANGE FOCUS DURING A ROUTINE!
    The function doesn't care where the info is sent, it just sends it.
    Allow the function to finish before attempting to do something else.
    The functions take less than a minute, you will NOT be waiting long.



    Setup Your Device:
    USB Debugging MUST be ENABLED
    Connect the USB cable to your PC and Tablet
    Some options require root
    Use this program to root your device


    What can You do:
    At the moment, there are 9 tabs of options.
    They are divided up by functions. Similiar functions are grouped.

    **///NEW\\\**
    *** Menu Stip across the top for quick access to commands/tabs.
    *** Access Google, XDA, AcerTabletForum, and this thread with 1 click
    *** Send me an email
    *** Donate


    Tab 1 : Drivers : ONLY A510
    *** Download the USB Drivers directly from Acer.
    *** To save program weight, I removed the drivers from the package.
    *** Most people will have them already, or only need them once.
    *** You can also open the "Device Manager" from this screen if there
    *** are difficulties seeing your device with ADB.


    Tab 2 : ADB Connection : Any ADB Enabled device with USB Debugging Enabled
    *** Use this tab to check your ADB connection.
    *** It is recommended to do this before most operations.
    *** A link is provided with more info on ADB


    Tab 3 : Command Prompts : Any ADB Enabled device with USB Debugging Enabled; Root
    *** Open Command Prompts quickly
    *** Two options: Shell with SU; Raw CMD prompt
    *** Links for more info on Shell and SU also provided


    Tab 4 : Misc Tools : Any ADB Enabled device with USB Debugging Enabled; Root
    *** Mount /system/ RW with 1 click
    *** Clear dalvik cache with 1 click
    *** Link for dalvik info provided


    Tab 5 : Reboot Controls : Any ADB Enabled device with USB Debugging Enabled
    *** Reboot device into 1 of 3 modes
    *** Normal, Recovery, Bootloader
    *** Links for info on Recovery and Bootloader provided


    Tab 6 : Root : A10x and A5xx with ICS; USB Debugging Enabled
    *** Root your A10x and A5xx with the ICS Simple Method
    *** Link to ZeroNull's post and info on Root provided
    *** Unroot

    All thanks go to ZeroNull for the exploit
    and to Jesse6749 for discovering it works on the A510

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



    Tab 7 : Bootloader : Any Device in which "fastboot oem unlock" is acceptable
    *** Unlock your Bootloader and Reboot Out
    *** READ CAREFULLY


    Tab 8 : Backup : Any ADB Enabled device with USB Debugging Enabled
    *** Pull files and APKs
    *** Buttons to Pull from:
    ****** build.prop
    ****** /data/app/
    ****** /data/app-private/
    ****** /system/app/
    ****** /system/vendor/app
    ****** Custom Pull : Just type the file's address and click


    Tab 9 : Install : Any ADB Enabled device with USB Debugging Enabled
    *** Mass install APKs
    *** Simply place the APKs in the 'APK' folder in this app's directory and click.
    *** A list of APKs will appear, click to install the list.
    *** The list isn't 'choose-able' It's there more for debugging, make sure it sees them.



    Possible Additions in the future:
    Custom Push Options
    Choose-able list for Mass APK install



    To INSTALL the Program on your PC:
    *** Download the zip file [LESS THAN 3MB]
    *** Most of the weight is Superuser.apk and the Root Package
    *** Extract to desired folder
    *** Leave the file structure intact.
    *** Click Acer_A510_AIO_Toolbox.exe
    *** Version Number is shown on the Title Bar of the program
    *** Have fun!

    To anyone watching this or seeing this:
    Please report back any experiences with the app.
    I would appreciate any and all feedback.

    I have also started v2.0 with a new implementation of the commands,
    more options, more noob friendly, optional with/without drivers for tablet,
    smaller file size, etc.

    Stay tuned.

    Worked great for me. Thanks for taking the time to make this. I didnt have to install usb drivers but i've connected several android phones and used adb in the past so other people might need too. The only minor snag iseen was unlocking the bootloader seemed to be on a pretty quick timer. I had to get right on the volume key quickly to get it to unlock after a couple fastboot reboots to try and figure out what was going on.

    Thanks for the feedback. I appreciate it.
    The Bootloader Unlock is hardware related. You have to be quick on purpose.
    That way it can be proven you knowingly did it.
    Thanks for reminding me, I have to put that info in there for others.

    Stay tuned for v2 coming soon. Much friendlier interface with far more information and options.

    I tried to root my new A510. But it gave me "Not getting root" error. It installed superuser app but it fails on root step. I have all drivers installed, tested connection using ADB connection tab. Please help. Attaching screnshotrootError.jpg

    Are you using 2.0?

    That screenshot is what I got as well until ZeroNull released a new version of his root package.

    The updated package is in version 2.0.


    Another thing, the old root package only gave the A510 partial root.
    Even with the error you received, you may have still gotten root, but partially.
    If you were NOT using 2.0 and still got root, then you should unroot
    and re-root with 2.0. To unroot, use a file explorer and navigate
    to this directory: /data/local/tools then execute this file: delroot.sh

    This will delete root. Then reboot your device. Then re-root with 2.0.

    I apologize. I was made aware of an issue with the download button
    on the website. The issue has been resolved.
