    I have rooted my a500 and unintalled a few pre-install software. I have heard that Acer will released android 3.1 update in June. I am not sure if my rooted a500 can upgraded to 3.1. Or i have to unrooted it. Thx.

    Hi,

    As long as you have not deleted stock system apps you will still receive the 3.1 updates. After the update is completed you will lose the Root and you have to Root your Iconia Tablet again.

    cheers :)

    Hi,

    Download, use Root Explorer and copy the Clearfi.apk and put it back into the system folder where you deleted it --> /systems/apps then reboot your tablet.

    cheers :)


    Clearfi.apk <-- here

    So no need to unroot the device first before update?
    I have received notification for system update today (size around 21MB)
    Is this Honeycomb 3.1 update?

    Asus Transformer already received Honeycomb 3.1 update
    So I think Acer shouldn't be far apart

    yes, really look forward to 3.1.
    it seems 3.1 will be a high dose of adrenaline to boost my A500.
