What happened? One day my A500 was out of juice. I plugged it for charging and got impatient. Pressed the power button too soon and too hard it seems. The tablet wouldn't boot beyond android screen. Tried soft reset, then hard reset (Power, Volume plus, lock). It reached the cog working android robot with yellow triangle once, and on trying repeatedly, it is now stuck perpetually on the acer logo screen.
What do I do?
Do please break it down for me.
I do have an SD card.
Well, you can try this.
Go to http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1816560
Scroll down the list till you find the a500 ICS update Roms. Download a couple of them.
Then go here and get the acer update decrypter http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1869505
instructions for the tool are there.
You may not have to decrypt the Files. They may already be decrypted. You will know when you try to open them using 7zip or Winzip app.
DO Not Extract the files, just open it. Pull the update.zip to your PC desktop.
Copy the update.zip to your Ext SD card. Do not put it in a folder.
Boot your Tab holding Vol+ and PWR untill you see the package installation, then release buttons.
You may have to try 2 or 3 different update files, but one of them should work. They should be FULL Update files (300+mb)
It will install a fresh stock ICS, so if you had a unlocked bootloader, CWM recovery, and user data, say hasta la vista to them.
