    OK in a nutshell I own an ACER A500 that my kids use. Recently I noticed that the available space on it was full and it was running sluggish so I decided to do a factory reset which ran fine. Now that I have dine this it got me thinking that updating the ROM might not be a bad idea. The thing us I have never done this before so I started to do some research. Honestly I know my way around the block but I'm finding my self in unfamiliar territory. So I have a few questions.

    Do I have to root the tablet first before installing a custom ROM.

    Is there anything else I should do when I Root and or install a custom ROM (additional download and installs).

    What is a good custom ROM for the A500. I have searched around and can't seem to find a clear answer for this. Any suggestion would help. There is one by IconiaHD that seems to be a good fit but I'm not shore.

    What if anything will I loose when I do this. I already know rooting wipes out the warranty but the A500 is long in the tooth so I'm not worried there. I'd just hate to loose certain features on the tablet that I was not expecting to loose.

    Like I said I've done some research on this but I'm not completely clear on everything. So I'm asking for some advice.

    Did you ever get a rely to your question? My A500 is running ICS and I would lke to upgrade if possible.
