Hi,

I updated my A500 from 3.1 stock to Taboonay 2.0 HC 3.2. For some reason I decided to revert back to HC 3.1 Stock but in trying to do so I messed up and lost both CWM and Root Access. Now I can still boot into Taboonay 2.0 HC3.2 but I cannot access CWM and I cannot flash any other ROM as I do not have Root Access. Also due to lack of Root Access I cannot install CWM.

Can someone please help me regain control of my device??? Please!!!

Already tried it and the previous version for it. It seems that they only work HC3.0 & 3.1.

Thanks for the advice though.

Acer recovery installer also requires a rooted device to perform all of its functions including installing recovery.

Acer recovery needs "root" access....superuser can be seen in the list of apps but it is denying permission to all apps despite setting "allow" to all apps on default!

What to do?
Tried iconia root....."denied root access"
Tried Acer recovery....."needs root access"
CMW can't be booted into as somehow it is not there!
Tried factory data reset......no change in problem!
??
Help/suggestions needed!
