Hi, this is the first android device I have played with so naturally I managed to mess it up.

The problem is with an Iconia A510, wrong forum but didnt find a Q&A for A510 so I tried here instead.
I rooted and installed CWM recovery. The custom firmware I have tried or stopped during boot and rebooted the device. Booted for 10-20 seconds, I see the animated logos before it reboots.

I upgrade with:
  1. wipe data/factory reset
  2. wipe cache
  3. advanced -> format /system
  4. advanced -> format /data
  5. advanced -> format /cache
  6. install zip from sdcard -> external sdcard


Am I doing something wrong with the upgrade? Can I upgrade CWM from inside CWM so I can try the latest Android version? Is there a firmware version that will work?


Info:
Files from: acer shreps fr
CWM version: CWM Recovery v6.0.1.9 by NoThrills for A510 tablets. Apparently can try KitKat with it, so only tried older Android.

All installed OK but stopped during boot:
  • 7comp-JB-a510-Nightly-20130808
  • aokp_a510_jb-mr2_unofficial_2013-12-05
  • cm-10.1.3-20130925-UNOFFICIAL-a510
  • cm-10.2-20130826-UNOFFICIAL-a510
  • cm-10.2.1-20140201-UNOFFICIAL-a510
  • pa_a510-4.1-BETA2-20140315

did you try to wipe data or/and dalvik cache after you installed the rom? (DONT WIPE SYSTEM!)
sometimes this will work for me.

Thanks for the tip. I tried wiping the usual suspects, flashing a CM rom and then flash data and dalvik cache. Same thing; started booting, the CM logo comes up and starts spinning before it freezes and reboots.

I'll play around a bit more. Tried the 'fix permissions' in CWM recovery, no go.

Solved it. Formatted everything except external_sdcard, flashed with AOKP and booted fine. Magic!
