A "Must Have" Battery Extender for every WiFi Acer Iconia A500 tablet.
Extend the battery life of your WiFi Acer Iconia A500 tablet with this handy utility that will disable the processes that constantly look for a 3G data connection. Acer uses the exact same firmware on both wifi and 3g models, which leads to needless battery drain on the wifi version. There's no 3G radio, so why have a process running that's constantly checking on it? This utility effectively disables those processes leading to longer battery life per charge.
In the screen shots below, you can see how "Cell Standby" uses a significant amount of battery power. After using this utility to disable the "Phone", that process no longer uses any battery power, resulting in longer run time.
NOTE: When you disable services, you'll see a Force Close message just before the device reboots. That's the phone.apk that us Force Closing, not this app.
DISCLAIMER: This utility is only for the Acer Iconia A500 Wifi version. Although it would probably work on the 3G if you just wanted to completely disable the 3G data connection. This utility requires root access.
** USE AT YOUR OWN RISK **
Interphaze solutions is not responsible for any damange to your device due to using this software.
Q: Why does it say "Force Closed" as soon as I click "Disable Services"?
A: It's not this app that's Force Closing, it's the phone.apk that's throwing the Force Close. Then the app will reboot the device. This is perfectly normal.
Q: My tablet fails to install the acer update properly.
A: If any system files are changed (including these), the update will not work. However, that's what makes this app so convenient. Just run this app again and click "Enable Services". Then you can do the Acer update. Once the update is finished, run GingerBreak again to get root access, then run this app again and click "Disable Services".
Q: The "Cell-Standby" is still showing in my battery stats after disabling these services.
A: It will disappear after a full recharge cycle.
This application software is required for the ICS upgrade. Please download.

PLEASE OPEN A TROUBLE TICKET BEFORE LEAVING BAD FEEDBACK!
Open Apology: I have gotten severely behind answering emails while trying to get this newer version of the app completed. And due to the insurmountable amount of spam I'm getting on the support email address, I've setup a Support Ticket system to handle issues. If you have problems with the app, please open a ticket. This will make it much easier for me to track open issues.
This utility will allow you to install a stock or custom recovery image on your Acer Iconia A500. Great for making full backups of your tablet and installing custom ROMs.
It has ClockworkMod Recovery by thor2002ro rev1.3.4 built-in, as well as the stock USA 1.141.07 recovery image.
To install other stock or custom images, simply put them on your sdcard names recovery.img.
It can backup your current recovery image and allow to your later re-install it.
It automatically fixed the Checksums by calling itsmagic.
Premium Features (in app payments)
Backup/Restore (REQUIRES Micro SDCard or USB Drive) - This will let you initiate a Nandroid Backup or Restore procedure without having to manually boot into recovery. It will see all your previous Nandroid backups, whether they are on your Micro-SD or USB drive, and let you select which partitions to restore. The tablet will then automatically reboot to ClockworkMod recovery to do the backup or restore process, then reboot back to normal mode.
Download/Install ROMs (REQUIRES Micro SDCard) - This feature will allow you to download the various ROMs from the internet and initiate the install process. You have the option of having it autotically run a nandroid backup and/or wipe date before installing the selected ROM. Again, the tablet will reboot into ClockworkMod recovery to do the work.
Note about XooM based ROMs. XooM ROMs do not let an apps write directly to the Micro-SD card due to a premission restriction. So when the Download/Install ROMs module tries to download the ROM List or a ROM File on a XooM based ROM, it must download it to your /mnt/sdcard/download folder and then move it to the proper place on the Micro-SD card, which is in a folder called "ROMs". All other ROMs download directly to the ROMs folder of your Micro-SD.
Note about Virtuous ROMs. The author has not given me permission to mirror his ROMs on a server that can handle direct hot-linking. Therefore, the Virtuous ROMs could not be included in this release. Once the author gives me permission, or provides a way to direct hot-link to his ROMs, then I will include them.
Protected mode: Protect your notebook when you're away from your notebook in public place.

Works with non standard external SD like the Galaxy S3!
Be sure to touch the settings button just once to detect your sd card.
This widget displays free storage space available for two locations***. It does not move apps to SD. It updates only once per minute, or when you tap the widget to extend your battery life. This is a widget so you need to add it to your home screen.
Open the settings by finding extSDWidget in your applications list. Check any two locations (internal, system, sdcard, external sdcard) to display them. It will only use 2, even if you check more of them.
I have not yet tested on dual SD card devices but it should work for them also.
*** The widget searches your device for possible sd card paths and includes internal and system by default. If it does not find the storage you want just enter it into the "Custom Path" (i.e. /mnt/sdcard/external_sd )
Tested on Galaxy S3 and Droid Incredible.
If the widget works well for you, please send me a message so I can add your device to my list of tested.

AcerNIdus is an app to collect and report error message with user's permission.
Only errors from pre-loaded apps will trigger AcerNidus, and the actions will be:
1. Get related error info.
2. Send the data to server.
3. Kill itself.
== What is the purpose of AcerNidus? ==
AcerNidus could help us to find out some bugs that we missed.
We collect the bugs and then try to fix them in newer version.
Users could upgrade your app/image for those bugs fixing.
== Why enforce user to update AcerNidus? ==
This is the mechanism of Android market, not a policy of Acer.
As we know, in some versions of Android market, they will check updates for pre-loaded apps automatically.
By the way, newer Android market may correct this behavior.
This application simulates BOOT_COMPLETED action sending "sdexternalapps.EXTERNAL_APPLICATIONS_AVAILABLE_AFTER_BOOT" intent and sends "sdexternalapps.EXTERNAL_APPLICATIONS_AVAILABLE" intent when EXTERNAL_APPLICATIONS_AVAILABLE is received.
Because Android OS does not send BOOT_COMPLETED nor EXTERNAL_APPLICATIONS_AVAILABLE to applications installed on external SD.
How to move application to External SD?
Moving an application to external SD must be allowed by the application itself (Although some ROMS allow force moving all applications).
If you want move SManager, or other application, to external SD you should press:
Home->Menu->Settings->Applications->Manage applications-> Locate SManager (or your preferred app) and select it->Press move to SD card
The application must be prepared to use SMExternalSD. Installing it does not allow move any application to external SD.
Nowadays only SManager uses SMExternalSD.
The main purpose is allow install SManager on External SD, but feel free using it in your application.
If you want use this app please send mail to devwom at gmail to get more programming info.

Problems? Use the EMAIL DEVELOPER link in the Play Store.
Today some apps store big files over the internal SD card (e.g. games, podcasts, offline RSS content, pictures, videos, offline navigation software). Typically users have a small internal sd card size (~16GB) while the external SD is a lot bigger (~32-64GB). Most of these apps users download from the Play Store save their application data in the internal sdcard by default and don't have an option to use the external SD card to store data so they starve your internal SD card memory. FolderMount is the solution to this issue. This app has the ability to link folders in your internal sdcard to folders in your external sdcard thereby populating the internal sdcard folders with content that really exists in the external card. This helps us free space and have multiple games/apps with big data stored simultaneously without the need to uninstall. For Nexus devices with no external sdcard, this application should help link folders to a usb flash drive for example.
Features of FolderMount:
* Mount internal SD card folders to external SD folders.
* Move content from internal to external when a pair is added. (Dialog prompt)
* Support for Android 2.3 - 4.4.
* Holo themed throughout and an intuitive GUI design.
* It will check SDCARD mount status and remount if necessary.
Limitation of the free app:
* Only 3 mount pairs allowed
* File Explorer does not list the sizes of the displayed folders
* Some restrictions apply on the on the type/path of source folder
Purchase "pro" from within the app to unlock these limitations.
* Add a folder pair. Source is the internal sdcard and destination is your extSdCard
* After adding, FM will offer to move the files for you. Click yes.
* Wait until the move operation is done then click on the PIN. If PIN turns green, you're all set.
* The files will exist in both the source and destination after mounting. This is expected and is normal. The files you see in your internal sdcard actually reside in your external sdcard now and if you "unpin" the pair, you'll see that your internal sdcard is empty again.
There are other apps that do the same functionality but this is the first to bring you support for Android 4.2 with a Holo themed app and an intuitive interface.
Special thanks goes to Androidizen for creating the video promo of this app.
Have fun :-)
