    Wink Thor A500 ROM v14.2 - Android 3.2.1

    Best ROM I've installed on my a500, & I've tested them all (HoneyVillain, Taboonay, Flexspeed, Lightspeed, etc..)
    If you know how to flash a ROM, get it!

    Thor A500 ROM v14.2 – Android 3.2.1 TegraOwners – Nvidia Tegra2 & MultiCore Tablets, Phones – ROM, Apps, News


    What did I notice improve?
    *The sound! tweaks to the sound driver made it much louder (to me this alone was worth the flash!)
    Youtube does not stutter! which has been an issue on past ROM's for my a500.
    Holding down the power button prompts Shutdown, Reboot, Recovery, Statusbar (hides bottom taskbar)
    Able to exit out of specific apps from the recent apps list (view 2nd pic)
    Setting you can switch on for taking pictures of the screen by holding down the recent apps button.

    & it's got an Ice Cream Sandwich theme, very nice..

    Notice the X on the recent apps




    For the Ice Cream Sandwich boot animation check out post #192 -> Publish Your A500 Boot Animation efforts HERE - Page 20 - xda-developers
    Rename file to bootanimation.zip & move to /data/local/

    Here's a video review of the Thor's new ROM




    Compare it to the new tegra 3 ASUS PRIME running on Ice Cream Sandwich, looks almost the same?

    For those on unrooted 3.2, read this -> [TUT] Revert OTA 3.2 back to 3.0.1 - xda-developers

    If you've never flashed a ROM watch this



    Warning
    : to all newbies, rooting voids warranty, you need to root to flash CWM recovery (download Acer Recovery Installer from the Market)
    Once you install CWM, your good to go, if you flash a bad ROM, you might get stuck in a bootloop but DONT PANIC, just go back into recovery & flash again! Always flash ROM's through CWM! NEVER flash a ROM through Acer Recovery Installer (or else...)

    I;m using this rom. it is excellent but there is a problem, maybe you can help me to pass that. usually I use oovoo to video chat with my relatives. oovoo on acer a500 is OK but on asus epad is not right. as you know, thor 14.2 is based on asus epad ROM HC 3.2.1 . SO what should I do? ask all of my relatives to use Gtalk????

    Hello,
    I'm new here so take it easy on me. I've been reading a lot and you smart people are kind of over my head. The short of it is my Acer Iconia A500 is brand new and has 3.2 on it but from what I'm reading I'll be better off rolling back to 3.0.1 then getting Thor 3.2.1 to take advantage of the list of feature enhancements. Is this similar to what people do with routers like Linksys wrt54g but obviously more advanced? Being new to tablets my comfort level with making dramatic changes to firmware is pretty low so a nudge is what I need to get me started.
    Thanks in advance for your sage wisdoms

    If I'm understanding your confusion correctly, what they're saying is that in order to root your tablet you will need to downgrade to something prior to 3.2... or I could be mistaken, but I rooted mine back when 3.0.1 was stock cuz I just HAD to have USB gamepad support, lol. Once you've rooted, you can definitely give this ROM a go.

    ...and it was very easy after I got out of my own way.
    My Acer Iconia A500 is currently running Thor 14.2 Android 3.2.1 and it has many obvious improvements in performance.

    Glad to hear you got it, & now that you've flashed it opened up a whole new world ICS should be out soon.. way before Acer releases update

    Not sure if it's just me but I have noticed a significant decrease in battery life. Same habits as before Thor, same apps. Battery drains faster, i.e. I used to get a solid 5-6 hours now it's more like 3-4. I'll keep testing to confirm what I can without rolling back to 3.2.
