Congratulations, it unfortunately can not test because I have an A510. Is the recovery from a510/a700 the same? Actually, the tablets are different only in the display, right? Has anybody tried to flash a recovery from an a700 to a A510? Where did you get the two files, especially the fstab?

Thanks!

Thanks, have you fully tested it ? We've had a couple of recos that managed to bricked tablets so far

Edit : you have not tested the wipe ? Those one bricked my A700 so be careful.

The boot.img was dumped from my device using dd, recovery.fstab was based on Nexus 7's and modified to suit our device. I'm not sure about the A510 since I don't have one.

Wipe works both from system and recovery itself.

Are you able to boot into fastboot? Are you able to boot into recovery using the orientation lock + volume down + power?

EDIT: Oh wait, this device has no way of booting into fastboot without a working system?

Yes fastboot and recovery mode are available. I can flash rom but they won't boot and whenever I use wipe/format on a partition the process will freeze.

Just checking procedure please....
I got the OTA update today to Image version: Acer_AV043_A700_RV07RC06_PA_CUS1 Build: Acer_AV043_A700_1.029.00_PA_CUS1

I had to unlock the bootloader and root again. ***OTA Rootkeeper WILL NOT keep the root! The bootloader is re-written and root removed***

I just downloaded the Recovery.img file and want to be SURE I do this correctly, so please forgive me if I sound "noobish"!

1. Copy Recovery.img to root of SD Card
2. Use ADB Fastboot to get tablet into flashboot mode
3. Once tablet has entered flashboot, Type -fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
4. Process should allow me to enter Recovery mode

Am I correct here? I don't want to brick my tab! I appreciate any input and thanks in advance!
