Not really, you will have to use Timmy Dean's Rollback Tool.

Basically it's an EUUS 3.2.1 ROM that will reset your partitions. The only advantage to running TD's tool, compared to a regular EUUS, is that TD's tool installs it "pre-rooted with a CWM recovery".

Either way, you are going to have to go back to 3.2.1. No way around it.

And... you will need your CPUID number to do it. I hope you had a custom recovery installed, as it should have this number. If not, you will need linux to get it. Neither tool will run without it.

I used these update.zip's to upgrade my 4.0.2 to 4.0.3. Great, but I can't get adb to recognize the A500. Is there a trick to this?

My A 500 has not been modified, but I too had no result, or at least no positive result. Do I also need to use this Timmy Dean's Rollback Tool? I also don't have my CPUID number. I do have a laptop loaded with Ubuntu 14.04, so can I use that to get it?

Get your CPUID here, using Ubuntu.

Download the following Timmy Deans 3.2.1 rollback tool and extract to your PC;

Run the PBxxx.exe and use administrators rights, Wait till it gives the pop up to put your tab in apx mode and do it and connect. Enter uid number.

Hope it works. Remember that acer no longer has ota servers, for a year now, so you will have to do a manual update.
