How to install a Custom ROM
1.) Download Gingerbread: http://vache-android....php?fileID=124
2.) Extract the "acer_ug" folder from the zip file on your SDCard
(optional) : Reboot in recovery and wipe all/factory reset
3.) Power off your phone
4.) Boot to SD Download Mode with Camera / Vol- / Power (the phone will vibrate 3 times)
5.) Wait until it has finished, the phone will reboot
6.) Activate USB debugging on your phone.(How to)
7.) Plug your phone to your computer with your USB cable
8.) Download Recovery 3.0: http://vache-android....php?fileID=125
9.) Unzip the "RecoveryMT-3.0" folder from the zip file
10.) Launch "install_recovery.cmd"
11.) Download your custom ROM e.g. http://android.modac...y-301-05112011/ and copy and paste either files onto the SDCard
12.) Boot into recovery mode using Volume Up + Focus + Power
13.) Select 'Wipe Data/Factory Reset' (don't wipe the SD Card).
14.) Go back and select 'Install .zip from SDCard' and browse to the ROM file, confirm.
At step 10 Launch "install_recovery.cmd" when run the program is cannot see my phone. I note the first thing the command script says is "on your computer install Acer driver" but I don't know what this is.
If I skip step 10 then at step 14 I get
Install /sdcard …
Opening update package...
Verifiying update package...
E:failed to verify whole-file signature
E:signature verification failed
In post 106 akasma74 said "boot in recovery, go to "Other" and select "signature" (last string in Recovery 2.2), then go back to "Flash zip" but I can't see the "other" option. (I'm sure this is because I had to skip step 10 but I'm asking here in case it's not)
Update - I realised I had never installed Acer active sync on my PC thus it didn't have the drivers i required. Once I'd installed Acer active sync everything worked like a dream. Thanks to the OP for this thread.
