Don't mind this message, it's normal.

There's no way to root with this recovery.

Oh allright, i tought that you needed a rooted mobile to make a backup, but i should be able to make a backup right now?

Well ill put it in another way, my main goal is to delete some of the standard acer files that i don't use,

whats the best way to do this?

And maybe a silly question, but if you cant root with the recovery file, what the big advantage of this program?

I mean recovery was already a standart option on the acer.. (guess)?

METAL RECOVERY 1.0.1

http://vachounet.posterous.com/metal-recovery-101

I tried that, my device didn't boot for 3 times (i had to take off the battery) and the forth time it booted normally.

Maybe that's why vache didn't post that here...

I just didn't take time to post it here.

Flashing the recovery have nothing to do with your boot issues.

It's safe to use/flash it.

Can you share the log ?

There's an option in the recovery to export the log to SD.

Try this:

Boot in recovery, and launch the backup without doing anything else in the recovery.

Looks like there's something wrong with your apps/data/dalvik to SD.

I suggest you to do it again from the beginning.

Maybe cause you made a backup with a version og the recovery that didn't support data/dalvik, so when you restore your backup it's like a first boot cause there's no data restored.

I like the text selection box with easiest copy-paste and ability to move in the text without the need to have trackball or keyboard with arrows.

You can change font size with spare parts.Now i am running at 200dpi but sometimes i want bigger font size and other times smaller.

And i hope that with 2.3 user agent for internet will work correctly. These are the things that make me not to use liquid metal as basic device.

Nop you can't use App2SD with the recovery only.

You need a ROM that support it (including some scripts and a compatible boot.img)

Hi everybody

I´m spanish (Sorry for my english) and i´m new around here and with Android.

Recently i bought a Acer liquid metal and i´m trying to install AmonRa. I have just downloaded the archieves, set my phone on debug mode, and launch install_recovery.bat.

Then i have downloaded Quick Boot but an alert show me that i dont have root access.

¿What should i do?

Other question is a problem with Wifi. At home, i have a wifi conecction. At firs time i connect without any problem, but now i can´t connect. The wifi disconnect. After read a lot, i think is a problem with Froyo (my actual version is 2.2.2), but i don´t know if there is a solution while acer actualize to gingerbread.

Thanks in advance.
