My Iconia A501 is already upgraded to HC3.2, and I'm still trying to find out to root it without downgrading it.
I found this thread on here, root for 3.2
It says that it can root HC3.2, but I'm not really understand how it does.
And by the way, on your ROM link, it says that it's not stable. What kind of bad things I can have if I install this ROM, instead of rooted?
Thanks a lot for your information.
Bro, yup that seems to be an option, you can follow that thread, i dont see any downside to it... just check with sm1 on the thread if the procedure will wipe your stuff.
To answer your second question... this is the process in my video.
1. You are on 3.2/3.2.1 (which is unrootable)
2. We Downgrade to unstable 3.0.1 which crashes a lot (just for 10 mins)
3. We use the unstable 3.0.1 to run a root program and install cwm (cwm is what will help you install any rom you want)
4. We use CWM to install 3.2 stock ROM (thats the link3 ive given... if you want to use anything else you can too
I hope I was precise and helped clear stuff up.
Please leave a msg if there are any more issues
Have a nice day and good luck
