[Q] problem with Acer Iconia Tab A100

Search This thread


Apr 2, 2013
Hello all!

I'm french, sorry for my English, I use google translation :s ..

I have a problem with my Iconia Tab A100, 1 week ago in normal use (no root or another have been made, everything is original, I'm running android ics) it is blocked, then s' is on again .. But it is blocked on the acer logo white x(

The warranty is finished for 3 weeks :'(

So I decided to fix it myself. I tried to put the latest version of ics on a sd card (found here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1591235) and reboot in recovery mode but I get the android logo with a "!" .. When I press the menu button (the house), but the recovery menu appears impossible to select with the power button. Yellow at the bottom, there are inscriptions (see picture;))

So I tried apx mode and restore with EUUs (http://vache-android.com/?dir=Tablets/A100 found here). I found my cpuid thanks to this tutorial http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1751978. But when I get the cpuid in EUUs it does not work x(..

My tablet is dead? There is a solution?

Surprise, Az
thank you for your answer! at least I'm set ..
How much compensation?

Hard to say how much they are, if you get a new one it's more then the tablet is worth getting as a refurb, and used will likely hit the same issue pretty quickly. As it's out of warranty I would suggest selling it for parts and using that money towards something less likely to randomly die. Nexus 7 if no sd isn't a problem, galaxy tab 2, or wait for the next generations of 7" devices which is probably within the next few months.

I'm sure others can chime in on devices to get to replace it.

ok, thank you for your information. I do not think succeed in selling this unit for loose parts passing through a buyer, I must pass by a professional. Could you indicate of sites able to redeem my Iconia?

Otherwise, you know other tablets including Dolby mobile?

thank you!
