Title kinda says it all. I have an Acer A200 that is stuck in APX mode (I assume as this is how device manager sees the tablet and the visual state is screen off and power button led is solid white. No fastboot, No ADB, Only NVFlash and when you invoke any NVFlash command the device drops from the windows device manager until you press the "reset" button with a paperclip (or other similarly small object). I have tried several fixes that I have found via an extensive search on google, XDA, AF, and AcerTabletForum (rarely written for the a200, mostly for the a50x). I have created other threads (in the wrong section actually, whoops) that got a good bit of views, but no replies. I hope SOMEONE has a working solution for me. I know there is hope for this tablet. I just do not have the know-how to fix it alone.

Nothing, from anyone? I know we have some very talented people that have overcome way more difficult issues than this.

Well, not a lot of A200 users here Mate. Mostly 500/501

The APX mode of course, is waiting for NVFlash input. This requires knowing first your UID number, and secondly, converting that number into an SBK (Secure Bootloader Key).

Unfortunately, the SBK program we have, is only for the 500. I don't believe there's anything for the 200 that I'm aware of.

Now, if there is an RUU (or EUU) ROM for the 200, then there is a possibility of getting the UID number for your tablet via Linux. (These type ROMs are an executable) but even then, I would think the system may have to be booted to run it. Not sure.
