What I found
After several tries and just booting the A500, I found that I had to hold down the down-volume and power buttons PAST when the unit turned on.
You have to hold them down LONGER than just when the ACER logo appears. That tripped me up. If you hold them down until you see the command text start to scroll in the upper left hand corner, then you can release!
Now I've got the "gears" and am hopeful the update takes.
'course, it would have been nice if Acer hadn't dribbled out the update with a digital eyedropper! everyone I know had it long ago. I wonder if it's serial# driven.

I did this too.
