today i decided to root my a500 running stock 3.2.1. it looked like rolling back to 3.0 or 3.1 was a little to involved. then google showed me a link Forum TegraOwners • View topic - A500 Guide: How to flash unrooted 3.2.1 OTA to ICS ROM . i followed those directions to acheive root only and used acer recovery for a modded cwm. so far so good. p.s. i am not a dev so icant help you if you brick your tablet. PLEASE read, then reread and read again and follow all directions to the letter.
