Sorry for what I'm sure will be a redundant question but I am having trouble figuring out exactly what I need to do to get my A500 updated and I just want to be sure so I don't brick it, especially since it's such an older tablet.

I have a stock A500 with HC 3.2.1 on it that has been rooted. I never did the OTA update for it and now it doesn't even come up as an option for me to do it anymore. What would be the best way for me to get my tablet up to ICS at the minimum or maybe even JB in the future? As far as I understand I have to flash the bootloader and recovery. Can I follow those tutorials with my tablet being on HC or would I need to get it to ICS first?

I was looking at this guide and I'm just not sure if it applies to my tablet that hasn't OTA'd yet.

Thanks a lot guys!

You'd better get ICS, unlock bootloader, get a new recovery (I'm using TWRP from, flash V9 bootloader and finally install your favourite custom ROM.
