What's working:
Because it's based on the original and official Acer stock JellyBean firmware all should work flawless!
 
Known problems:
as of version 1.1: None!
 
 
Installation:
  1. You must have an unlocked Acer S500 => HowTo
  2. Use TWRP 2.5 or CWM to select ROM zip file and press install. No need to Wipe data, system or cache. The installer will determine if it's necessary.
  3. AROMA will fire up and guide you to the installation
  4. A clean install is recommended....
Update/Modify ROM
You can try to install RECA ROM over an existing installation. e.g. an update from Cirrus ROM to RECA ROM should give no problem. Choose "Upgrade or modify" in installer menu. If you experience problems with upgrading, re-run the installation and choose for "Clean install". 
 
 
Troubleshooting:
When you do an upgrade you can expierience some strange problems with already installed apps. A good solution is to go to "Settings=>Apps=>App name" and clear data and cache. In many cases this will solve your problems.
If your problems persist, the only thing you can do is a "clean install".

Yes you can install it over stock. If you expierience problems when doing so re-run the installer and choose "Clean install"

GPS works because it's a modified stock kernel with modified stock firmware.

Installed it over stock 4.1.2, works like a charm. It could be placebo, but it also feels a bit faster than stock. Only downpoint (though it hasn't even got anything to do with the ROM itself) is that the Notification Toggle app keeps a permanent icon in the statusbar. You can set it to transparent, but I would like to just get rid of it.

 

Great ROM!

Hi, bobbes!

You said that this ROM is based on original Acer_AV051_S500_1.063.00_WW_GEN1 Acer JellyBean Firmware

Please, answer me to this questions:

1. Is possible to install your RECA ROM over stock EMEA_ORGROD firmware (Acer_AV051_S500_1.034.00_EMEA_ORGROD) ?

2. If is possible, do I have to root my phone before install your ROM (my S500 is unrooted and has stock bootloader and stock recovery) ?

3. If I install RECA ROM do I loose my installed apps (see screenshot) ?

Thank you very much!

Dan.

Thx! Kernel is stock kernel, so RECA speed should be the same as Acer stock. I only disabled some safety features in the kernel which Acer had implemented.

1. I don't know. Try it, make sure you backup your phone first so you can revert back to original firmware.

2. ROOT is not needed. The ROM is rooted. But make sure your bootloader is unlocked!

3. Not if you choose for Upgrade/Install in installer menu. Again, make sure you backup everything before upgrading. use CWM or TWRP for backup.

If it is so, please post your opinion!

Thx in advance, Dan
