the iconia root app doesn't work? I wouldn't know because I have the a500. You may want to check over at XDA, I think they might have a solution.
Do you have an idea how to root the Iconia A501 running 3.2.
I used all known methods but no chance.
Which version of ROM do you have? I used Gingerbread.apk on 3.0.1 and am sure, on 3.1 as well (it was a while ago......)
Try Google ('root acer a500') there's more than a few suggestions there, but here's the Gingerbread way
ROOTing the ACER A500 (Root 3.0.1 or 3.1). Easy as 1-2-3 - PPCGeeks
my version is 3.2 and i find in many site but i do not see solution to root ,maybe 3.2 is new
As far as I have seen, once you upgrade to the 3.2, you lose root, and there is no re-rooting method at this time. I'm sure it won't take long for the devs to crack it, though.
I am sure,it's in a few month......may be.........
Acer Iconia A500 3.2
You're not the only one... I'm sittingon the same problem... I'm waiting on a crack for this so I can overclock and run the fancy stuff. Hopefully a gingerbreak or something with pull through soon enough.
Same issue. Now the Iconia comes with 3.2 installed.
Far as I know, the 3.2 boot loader still hasn't been cracked. Only way to get root access is to revert back to 3.0.1. Here's a link:
Are we talking about ACER Tablet A500 or A501?
Please read the first query.
I have an A500 (2 units) and already rooted successfully and now I have a A501 also looking or finding a way to root but the same process in rooting the A501 is not successful as the A500 so if there's another way to deal it i'll be happy for that and appreciate it.
