Go back and try it again, you didn't follow the directions fully. It works if you do it right.

Im really having trouble with the APX mode..... I already powered down the device and start poking and holding the reset button + the power button , then release it after 3 seconds... then the reset button... I only see the ACER logo then it vibrates then turned off .... At first Iam able to start the apx...vuz its installing the driveon my computer but after i removed it it was gone....

I finally Made it ., it says PASS on my screen then i boot in to recovery do i need to install the A500-1.031.00-LIGHT-WITH_ICS_BOOTLOADER? or ist possible to go back restore to my back up? running HC 3.2.1 COM_GEN2? and recived official ICS UPDATE..... The thing is I cheated at first I installed COM_GEN1 ( 1.031 ww com_gen1) over my COM_GEN2...after that it upgrade automatically to ICS without connecting to my Wifi! And I thought it was not legit...

Not possible to go back to HC that easy , see in the guide I posted , there is a link to a thread on how to.

And you don't need to flash the light version A500 rom from the guide thread as you are already on the ICS bootloader because you flashed the ICS leak.
Just so you know that 1.031.00 leak is what Acer is pushing out as OTA so you are not missing any thing.
See this line of my guide:
You can also flash the full leaked version of 1.031.00 but then you need to get root so you can delete "recovery-from-boot.p" from /system before you flash the unlocked booloader and custom recovery.
If you feel insecure better to flash full leak that way you get the stock recovery.

civato as we are talking recovery's is it safe to just flash the ICS update as a update.zip with CWM still on the tab or should i replace it with the acer recovery first?

Thanks Civato,


I manage to go back to HC which I got a back-up file in my CMW in my SDCARD ....after I installed the boot thingy V3 I regain the CMW recovery...then I just fully restored to my HC 3.2.1 com_gen2. After that I still manage to retain the V3 thingy boot & CMW recovery... Also, i got the official OTA & I'm running ICS now . Thank you so much. xoxoxooxx
