From what I understand I think you need to begin with this:

http://android.modac...ea-gen1-032701/

Then install a custom recovery:

http://android.modac...r-liquidmt-v22/

And then flash the ROM of your choice e.g. this one which seems to be rated quite highly:

http://android.modac...final-tl-metal/

There's always a chance that you could brick the phone but it's unlikely so long as you follow the instructions and just be careful.

I don't actually own the Metal (yet) so if any of the instructions above could be wrong, so could someone please correct me if that is the case.

Thank you

hi, everything's right for a metal owner :D
just follow the steps and you'll be fine with you new acquired phone.

About custom roms, you also have gingerounay 2.1.1, made by vache, kinda 'state of the art' rom : smooth, quick, and ready to use.

Welcome in Acer community :P
