Hello there,

I really got a big problem.
My A501 is stuck somewhere in a bootloop (I only see the acer-logo and then the android logo and nothing goes any further)
I can bring it to APX - mode, but no tool doesn´t work...I´ve tried it with NVflash, which keeps stuck somewhere when formating partitions, I´ve used the APX Flash tool, which also keeps hanging in there forever at step two!!! So there is no way, i can use those tools properly (which, I guess, would solve my problems) .

I tried installing Acer_501_4.027.15_COM_GEN1.zip

with the result:

Quote:

Not legal !!!!!!! abort
Error: The blob package is not official, the update is failed!

sometimes I get a little green droid with an exclamation mark in a yellow triangle in front of him.

Before all that I had a:

Acer Iconia A501
ICS 4.0.3 stock, no root, locked bootloader

Now I have spent endless hours with nothing
I just would like to have a A501 with a custom Rom / CWM.

Can anyone please help me?! Thank you very much.

edit1: I put the
- update.zip file from the decrytped Acer_A501.0.000.00_4.017.03_EMEA_CUS7_131372152736 7_dc802d69.zip
onto my sdcard, booted with Power+Volume DWN, Droid Machine with those clockwork wheels and a progress bar, then it was stuck at about 95%, rebooted -> Boot Loop at "android"

edit2:
- decrypted update.zip from Acer_A501.0.000.00_4.037.01_EMEA_TMPL_131606968376 2_98ed1d97.zip
- Acer_A501_4.027.15_COM_GEN1.zip

edit3:
Is there any way I can get my fingers on an UNTOUCHED stock ICS rom for my A501 and then start all over again?

edit4:
- Acer_AV041_A500_1.031.00_WW_GEN1-FULL-ROOT.zip
Droid with yellow triangle infront of him with an exclamation mark

edit5:
- decrypted file from ACER_A500_7.014.14_041_203.01_COM_GEN1_13334447371 991.zip did some change !!!!
I´m back in my system...

Now: how can I change all that?

Modelnumber (now) A500
Android Version: 4.0.3
Kernel-Version: 2.6.39.4+
Image Version: Acer_AV041_A500_RV03RC01_WW_GEN1

I really would like to install CWM, but now I´m really afraid of doing it wrong again.
How do I proceed step by step?
Thanks!


E - D - I - T:

everything is fixed now...all my partition tabels were crushed to pieces...i had to fixed them via the way Moskow Desire (hope i got the name right) posted here in this forum.
after that, i was able to use all the programs mentioned before!

thanks any way
