Will need some more info to help.
Which Rom did u d/load.
Which Rom and bootloader was on the tab (GB , HC or ICS)- settings>about. You will need the correct rom for the flash to work correctly.
Is tab still bootable.
The android and exclamation point is Acers Stock Recovery - it should also show a yellow status bar?
You will need the tabs CPUID. There's a guide in my Sig on how to get this. First post halfway down are 8 different methods u can use depending on which android build u are on.
Also myt wanna have a look in the root guide too , get u up 2 speed with drivers an other info u need to know. It can be rather daunting but working with the guides following each step to the letter will get u where u want to be
