    I've unlocked my bootloader by following the instructions in this post: xda-developers - View Single Post - Unlock bootloader

    Rooting using the instructions in this post:xda-developers - View Single Post - Full root for A700

    Will be removing my bloatware this evening, methinks.

    EDIT: Confirmed unlocked and rooted. Installed Busybox and my favorite screen tool RootDim (screen dimmer that makes for better nightreading and battery life)

    I'd hold off on that bloat ware removal for a while If I were you.

    This thing has been out for less than a week, and there is likely to be updates pushed OTA soon. There always seems to be a update fairly soon after any first release. (Although the number of issues are fairly small, I already reported some to Acer. (see below).

    If the past is any indication, removing bloatware cause the OTAs to be unsuccessful. So unless or until you get tight on space it might be easier to just Disable the bloatware for a while.

    What I sent to Acer Support:



    What I got back:

    The only things I deleted were Kindle and Zinio (and I backed them up just in case). Everything else I just disabled/froze. It's nice being rooted, though. Made a backup of all my goodies and blocked ads. Feels good.
