A500 ICS Full Update files Decrypted for bricked tablets- Links Valid
So for Stock A500 users stuck at the Acer Logo, or maybe some other strange issue with the tablet not booting, you may want to try this method first before rolling up your sleeves and moving on to getting your UID, which involves the use of Linux for the most part.
Download these full ICS Update files for the A500 (501 owners can try this also, but you'll have a 500, but that might can be changed later)
These files are already "decrypted" and are named differently as to keep them separate. Download them all to a folder.
Now, select one of them, rename it to "update" (end result is a file called update.zip) copy it to SD card, boot tab and see if it installs. If it hangs on the install, delete it from SD card, and do the same with the next. Hopefully one of them might take. You may have to try all 4 of them before one works. It's hit and miss.
Hope this gets you going.
