Default [GUIDE] Where's my CPU ID at, why you need adb and whats fastboot!!

[ UPDATE Dec 7 ]

Tablet "Write Protected - need to enter password
If you encrypt your data and forget your password - you must do a full data reset wipe to get into your system again
[ UPDATE Dec 7 ]

this is an excellent guide by Danny2 in using the BABSECTOR EUU to repair partition errors and flash an ics custom rom AND Bootloader ..... and reportedly works if you are stuck in APX Mode (black screen/ power led on) and recognised as an APX Device on yr PC -
if it helps you please head to this post hereand thank Danny2

Once you are able to write & format partitions again, you can follow various paths. The usually recommended path is TimmyDeans, or the HoneyComb 3.01 EUU from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1816560.

Both use the EUU method, both should work, Both take you back to HC, where you can follow the upgrade path on google play to get you back to stock 4.03. (It's a little more involved to get back to 4.03 with TimmyDeans.)

However, I found that I prefered to install this ROM http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1969887 directly after running Babsector.

Follow the directions exactly (including installing the correct bootloader) and you should be able to go from where you are now, (Only APX available) to a very nicely functionin ROM, in a lot!!!! less time than following the Stock upgrade path. (You
might make mistakes along the way, just start again, it will almost certainly work out.)

Coincidentally, this ROM will also give you OC, along with many other options, & is highly customizable, is still an ICS Rom, so doesn't suffer from the memory leak probs I believe affect all current versions of the hacked JB ROMS.





[ UPDATE OCT 9 ]

Couple of updates folks
Quote:

From user JDGM3NT4L - Want to return to stock? This is for you...
A500 Back to Factory Stock the easy way
- via stock HC update.zip method
- no cpuid required,
- use with or w/out patched bootloader.
- needs cwm installed
- full data wipe needed
- will un-softbrick most tabs
- looking for testers if "stuck in apx mode"
Quote:
also a heads up for when entering your uid's into the tool generators - a space counts as a character and will produce
an incorrect sbk!!! be careful - hat tip to


[UPDATE AUG 6 RE: NEW SBK TOOL]

Vaches new SBK Tool here OR

Have fun!

Also quick heads up to anybody wanting access to Vache's site in case you didn't see it elsewhere: you can generate your SBK from http://a500bootloaderflash.tk/sbkcalc/ No downloads necessary



[UPDATE July 30]

eracet has posted that he had all sorts of probs with the SBK
see his original post here

Even when SBK will be different. In SBK only the x is lowercase rest is upper.

I think this may be 90% of those who are saying that there cpuid is wrong.
If this can get posted somewhere else that would be great.

I am also glad to share my result.

[UPDATE JULY 8th]

afterOTA Tool now has a lite version which will backup all your important numbers uid, bootloader version etc to a handy text file on your pc. Download from the bottom of the OP

without rebooting, I flashed the v7 bootloader and recovery as per the bootloader thread; since the partition table was restored at the previous step, the operation now succeeded;
I rebooted the tablet in recovery, and proceeded to wipe the data and flash a ROM the usual way.

[UPDATE JUNE 25]

and for those who have tried all else and failed......check this out by eppeP
thankyou eppeP

You can also get the UID from the device in APX mode.
When in APX mode the device will answer the first read request with the UID.

A short description and some code for doing this with libusb-1.0 can be found here.

Since the Windows users can't use that I also made a variant for libusb-win32 with a visual studio project.
A snapshot of that can be found
here.

************************************************** ***********************

GET ME MY CPUID!!!

There are 2 different cpuid

ICS CPUID has only 13 digits/characters and is your "serial no." as reported in settings, on your sdcard cover and on the box

we are only interested in the 15 digit HC CPUID this can only be got:

(1) From a PC using Blackthund3rs A500 manager
(2) From your device using Terminal Emulator App
(3) From USBDeview must have previously used the Tab under HC with the PC you're using
(4) From a uid.txt in any Honeycomb-cwm backup in external_sd/clockworkmod/backup/"your_HC_backup" folder
(5) From adb devices if you're running honeycomb
(6) From cwm 1.7.2 via on screen display and a text file - great if you are on ICS already
(7) From a working system in /sys/firmware/fuse/acer_cpuid
- add a zero to the front!!!
thanks MasterEllis for the heads Up!!!

(8) Gersma's most excellent OTA Toolmakes most of this thread obsolete!!!! Thankyou Gersma for all you've done OTA Tool is all anyone ever needs....
Features :
HTML Code:
- auto sbk calculator
- saving sbk number for future reference
- one click flashing of bootloaders and recoveries
- one click flashing of custom bootloaders and recoveries
- return to stock HC or ICS through update.zip method
- unbrick your tablet if it gets stuck in apx mode
- root your tablet
- kernel flashing
- etc

Credits ( people who directly or indirectly contributed ) :
- Vache, Jasto, Civato, Scrilax and a lot of guides on Xda
(9) eppeP's method uses apx mode to retrieve your uid.
here is a guide by srbeen here

Code:
#include 
#include 
#include 

int main(void)
{
    unsigned char data[64];
    int received_length;
    int r = 1;
    libusb_context* ctx = NULL;
    libusb_device_handle* dev_handle = NULL;

    libusb_init(&ctx);
    dev_handle = libusb_open_device_with_vid_pid(ctx, 0x0955, 0x7820);
    if(dev_handle)
    {
        r = libusb_bulk_transfer(dev_handle, 0x81, data, sizeof(data), &received_length, 10000);
        if (r == 0)
        {
            if(received_length == 8)
            {
                printf("uid: %#016lx\n", *(uint64_t*)data);
            }
            else
            {
                r = 1;
                printf("Error: We got %d bytes of data insetad of the 8 bytes we expected...\n", received_length);
            }
        }
        else
        {
            printf("Error: USB read failed!\n");
        }
        libusb_release_interface(dev_handle, 0);
    }
    else
    {
        printf("Error: Failed to open device!\n");
    }
    libusb_exit(ctx);
    return r;
}
(10) a rollback to HC is the only other way


You'll find more indepth info on these methods below:


________________________________________________

Files you will need

You're gonna need a few files for this -
so while you do a FULL backup of all your data and apps you can be downloading everything you need.....
and though not needed to get your CPUID you will need these if you're flashing patched bootloaders etc

TOOLS

a500 Manager/apxFlashTool (see attached), icsRoot
civato's nvFlash package


GUIDES

there is plenty of info out there as well as some great guides
Your first stop should be the thread of whatever it was you flashed the rom, tool or recovery head to this thread and have a read -
if theres 500 pages then ALWAYS read the Original Post as ALL the info will be in there - then read thru the last few pages
and see if anyone else is reporting the same issue.

So here are some links

Civs Guide to flashing the bootloader

walkthrough using apxflash tool at Step 6
From Civato's OP of The Guide: nvFlashToolPackages

Skrilax_CZ bootloader thread and should be "required reading" for anyone mucking about in their tabs internals!!!!

Rollback to HC
jazzyjames guide here


APPS

ARI - Acer Recovery Installer: For retrieving BL & Recovery Versions, Installing Roms and Recovery Images
Iconia Root/gingerbreak: For returning to Honeycomb
Terminal Emulator
esFileExplorer
Have all these apps on your ext sdcard ready to go!

DRIVERS

Acer Support for Acer APX/Fastboot/Recovery Drivers
Android SDK for the adb/USB drivers - You can d/l a mini zip containing just the adb and fastboot drivers attached to this post "adb_fast.zip"

ROMs

ICS: Take your pick from plain Stock Roms pre-rooted, or
tweaked Stock, kernels,BL, custom recovery"

to our fab Custom Roms,
Flexreaper,
Taboonay,
Lightspeed
ezterry's stock ICS and custom "Public" recovery
ezterry OC kernel "ezT20"
and of course for you 501'ers Moscows "AlexandraIV"
Other model owners: Happy to add anything here for 100, 200, 510's etc

Rollback to Honeycomb

jaszzyjames guide here
timmydeansv4 - for downgrading to HC
EUU_SBK Official Acer Tool for downgrading all the way back to 3.0.1

CUSTOM RECOVERY

You can use ARI to install your recovery's once you have the patched bootloader OR
flash using OTA Tool,
civato's, nvflash package or
blackthund3r's apxFlash Tool

with your new unlocked v4-v8 ICS BL - you can fastboot install

Code:
fastboot erase recovery
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
fastboot reboot
done! recovery flashed!!

Full Wipe - needed as the old way using the rocker switch method isn't supported with the new bootloader

Code:
fastboot erase userdata
fastboot erase cache
fastboot reboot

BOOTLOADER

Able to be downloaded from Civs Guide, from Skrilax_CZ bootloader thread and as part of Blackthund3rs bundles package

"V8-Unlocked-ICS-HC-bootloader-MULTI-CWM.zip" is the latest nvflash version,

You have the option to install your choice of recovery - just open the cmd
prompt on the folder and type "v8.bat" or just click on the bat file
itself!!- be wary with your bootloader and recovery - only certain recoverys are
compatible with certain bootloaders and not all features of recovery are available.

"A500-V7-CWM1.7.a500apx" the latest .a500apx files for use withapxFlash Tool OR
Use the bundle market in the app with the option to choose yr own recovery version

- please check all the documentation regarding your bootloader, recovery and the rom you intend to flash

After flashing the bootloader I always flash my rom straight away again just for good measure....

When you are asked to do a Full Wipe AND /data/media then please do it
- more problems are caused by failure to do a FULL Wipe and Format than anything else
- if you're asked to do so then please DO IT!!!!


__________________________________________________ _________________________________________

ok back to getting your CPUID


(1) Use a500Manager to retrieve my HC CPUID

has been updated v1.0.4 with bct fix
Great way to get your CPUID and yr Bootloader Version
ALWAYS reboot your tab before running.
Shows what 'mode' you are in
It also puts you into APX Mode really easily
I always start my flash with this - once I'm in apxmode i switch over to nvFlash

a500 Manager also has:

HTML Code:
One-click APX Mode entry 
One-click Recovery Mode entry 
One-click fastboot entry for patched bootloaders 
Instant logcat viewer 
Instant dmesg Viewer 
Function which dumps the dmesg to a text file on the desktop 
Serial number extraction to make SBK calculation exponentially easier** 
Bootloader version extraction 
Links to ICS Root, A500 APX Flash Tool and two download links: 
(Acer and my mirror) for USB Drivers 
Shows what mode the tablet is in at the bottom
~ from Civs' Guide - thanks Civ


(2) Retrieve your CPUID from your Tab using Terminal Emulator from the market

Code:
dmesg | grep androidboot.serialno
some have reported this did not work for them but that this one did when they tried it:
Code:
dmesg > /mnt/external_sd/dmesg.txt
Run these commands AFTER you have rebooted your Tab..

NOTE: HC Bootloaders who are running an ICS build:

adb reports your device ID as your serial no. and we need your HC CPUID.

If you do not have a backup then try usbDeview:


(3) Retrieve your CPU ID from USBDeview

Suggest you extract to the same folder you used for your adb files,

USBDeview will only work when you have previously plugged your tab into the PC WHILE
you were running HC Rom and BL


1 If you haven't plugged your tab into this pc before, do so now, before you run the program. HC ROM/BL ONLY

1a Run the exe and you will be presented with a window of all the USB devices you have ever plugged into your computer.

2 Click on "VendorID" along the top to sort them

3 Look for the number "0502" under VendorID or 3325 "ProductID"

4 In the serial number column will be a 15-digit number this is your device ID

5 Write the number down and put a 0 in front of it and now you have your CPU ID!!!



(4) From your nandroid backup,

In the cwm folder on your ext. sd card - open one of your backup folders and look for "uid.txt" file.
if you havent got one then do one before you flash
cwm 1.7.2 and 1.7.3 will dislay your "uid" on the menu screen, and from memory TWRP does too.-



(5) Run adb devices in command prompt as long as its not the same number as your serial no. in settings

then you are good to go with your uid!!!



(6) From Custom Recovery

Most of the custom recovery's now have your uid displayed on the main screen of the recovery menu
cwm 1.7.2/3, twrp and I think public recovery does as well....if you're able to boot into recovery then this
method is a no-brainer!!!

(7) From a working Tab...

open yr file explorer, esfile explorer is a great one....
navigate to /sys/firmware/fuse/acer_cpuid - add a zero to the front!!! easy peasy


In Summary

Honeycomb Rom and Bootloader - from a nandroid or adb by far the easiest

ICS Rom but Honeycomb Bootloader - flash a HC Rom (no downgrade/rollback needed) and do a nandroid, usb deview, don't think dmesg works here, let me know if it does for you....

ICS Rom and Bootloader - a500, dmesg, usbdeview(if you've plugged yr tab in while running HC ROM/BL or cwm 1.7.2



I've done everything right and now nothing works! Help???


If you've gone thru everything here and not been able to get your uid, then there aint alot of choice left especially if you're on the ICS Bootloader....
you're looking at a downgrade

If you're currently running HC Rom and BL then there are some things to check if you cannot get a response from adb

a physical connection

- check data cables, micro-usb cable required
- plug in to another USB Port
- check you have the cable actually connected to both devices



USB debugging is not enabled in Settings especially when you have installed a new rom or have factory data reset/Hard reset, recheck all settings

Your PC OS can also be an issue if you have done everything above and adb still wont play the game -

the next best thing you can try is to use a different PC. Vista/Win 7 usually have no problems, XP can be twitchy and there have been a few issues on 64bit

If you are unable to retrieve your HC CPUID after all this then there is no other way but to downgrade to HC or use Linux

If you have adb working then there maybe a chance of bypassing the uid check

but you must have a working adb!!! - life would be very difficult without dear old adb -

The drivers are not installed properly, I can hear you all already!! I've done that over and over and its not working!!!!

sometimes if you fail to complete a nvflash you need to completely reinstall the Acer Drivers before it seems to want to finish

Its a real big pain ITA which can be avoided by taking 15 minutes to get adb set up once and for all!!!

In fact it shouldnt take that long even - you should just be able to plug yr Tab into your PC/Laptop and Bingo



It's a pain typing "my path" into cmd, can't I just type "adb devices"

Set adb as Environment Variable or call adb direct from command prompt

first, copy the path to your install - in your case:

"Path to adb" = C:\android drivers

1. Click on the Start menu

2. Right click on Computer

3. Click on Advanced system settings

4. Click on the Environment Variables button

5. Look for Path in the System Variables section. Double click on it

6. Go to the end of the Variable value box and put in a semicolon ;

7. Now paste your "Path to adb" after the ;

8. it should look like this in your case D:\android;

9. Now test it out - start - run/search - cmd - in cmd window type: adb devices

10. If you've followed the steps you will see your device ID - voila!!!!

Unhappy Stock ICS unable to access any of this...

Upgrading via an EUU/SBK method is dependant on a "successful communication connection" between your TAB and PC

If you cannot run "adb devices" and have it return your CPU ID then the flashing process will fail.

If you have a custom ICS rom AND on the HC Bootloader this number will be your serial no. please see note below

ok, lets go, you need the correct drivers installed to begin with:


1) go to Acer Support and download the Acer Drivers
2) run the Setup.exe to install them

You must also have the ADB drivers from the android-sdk (see attached zip)

3) Extract the adb files to your desktop
4) Open command prompt as admin
5) In the command prompt window type cd
6) leave a space after it
7) drag and drop the adb folder into the command window (This saves you having to enter the path manually)
8) Now, type adb devices and write your device ID down with a zero in front...done!!!

If you cannot get adb to retrieve your ID then the flashing process will not work as it should.

You need to fix this first....

*****Note: HC Bootloaders on custom ICS builds
adb will report your device ID as your serial number, which of course will not work for APX based flashing - thanks to tehdomil for the heads up
you guys will need your original HC CPU ID which you can get from the back up you made before flashing the ICS rom. For those that didn't - try usbdeview below.

*****How to retrieve your CPU ID from USBDeview
Suggest you extract to the same folder you used for your adb files, just to keep things tidy...you're bound to want these things again
1) If you haven't plugged your tab into this pc before, do so now, before you run the program.
1a) Run the exe and you will be presented with a window of all the USB devices you have ever plugged into your computer.
2) click on "VendorID" at the top to sort them
3) Look for the number "0502" under VendorID or 3325 "ProductID"
4) In the serial number column will be a 15-digit number this is your device ID
5) Write the number down and put a 0 in front of it and now you have your CPU ID


The adb guide will still apply as far as getting your tab and pc talking on the same wave length
Ok, followed all the steps. But cannot get my PC to recognise my tablet completely. MTP:yes, or Camera:yes, yet there is a driver missing which fails to load/install. Any ideas from you bright people?

I would like to access bootloader and flash recovery.

V frustrating.

For example, where do you find mtpfs and mount for Win 7 x64?

In device manager, I have a "Other devices" Acer Iconia A500 no driver installed, yet "Portable Device" Acer Iconia A500 is fine.

I can copy and paste files from tablet while in MTP mode. No difference with SD card mounted or unmounted.

Very frustrating. The last device driver I assume is "USB device" but despite mucking around with Acer USB device drivers 1.00.0524 and 1.06.1500 no luck.

sorry bit caught up at the moment
things to check first:

...1) That you do have USB debugging enabled:Settings>Applications>Development
...2) Win7/Vista work best; XP can be titchy
...3) You d/l the "Just_adb.zip" to install the adb drivers - you dont mention an entry for them in Device Manager
...4) Switch USB ports on your pc
...5) Try another USB cable
...6) Put the MTP thing aside for now, they have no bearing on this issue

If still no joy then if you can, try another pc
If thats not possible then uninstal and reboot both devices
then reinstall both acer and adb - acer ones mainly

ADB or USBDeview both tell me that my CPUID is 0123456789ABCDEF. Of course, if I get the SKB and use NVFlash to validate it, it fails with a message that says "USB device not found."

I found my CPUID (0x033c20c541a051d7) in an old nandroid backup and tried it but with the same results.

Any ideas?

Ok i'm amending the guide as we speak, just to be clearer.

The device ID as reported by adb is 15 digits long the (UID)
when we use this no. for an EUU based flash we add a 0 to the front making 16 digits (CPUID)
the one in your nand adds 0x to the basic UID 17 digits

the CPUID from the EUU is for Honeycomb bootloaders
Which I believe is different for ICS bootloaders
and different again for HC b/l on ICS Rom!!!

i tried the SBK generator last nite for the first time and entered only my UID
and had no probs
so give that a go (in the example you gave) 033c20c541a01d7
