How To Boot Into Recovery Acer A500




What do you think about this video?

Randy Kennedy: Just picked up my a500 from 3 years ago. Don't know the password on it, trying to boot recovery gives the green android guy with a yellow triangle and an exclamation mark. Any tips or tricks? Just want to re install the OS

sskhaliq: hi Dave. Can i still do this if my device is not rooted? I've forgotten the password and the tablet is totally stuck. Any guide how to get around this would be highly appreciated. Stuck for the last 3 weeks!

murmaider2: where did you get clockwork recovery for the a500, it doesnt exist

james willson: spent hours looking for how to do this, noone else mentioned holding the extra side-button with the power button when booting!

Vicki Brown: The problem with this video is that it assumes that rooting the device is equivalent to installing CW Recovery. They are NOT identical.

iOSTerminal: mines just dies when i try

yudhaagustya pratama: Hai , william brown i think your iconia have problem with hardware M/B not software , you must to fixed your hardware first , or you can buy new hardware to replace your M/B , after that you can installed new firmware ICS for your iconia , If the led power on but cant display i think part bios component is broken / dead , you can replace that component first , then check the vibrator component , if didnt work cek component part one by one , surely will take a long time or you can fix in PLACE to repair M/B 

volcom101122: I did the first part of this where you hold power and volume down, the words came out then it went to a little android character with something moving around in a circle at his stomach, and then it went to an android who is laying down with like a flap on his stomach open and some areas inside him that looked like square buttons and ontop of that image was a red triangle with a " ! " in it...do you know what this means?

Dave Here: @chochodepancho Is your phone rooted? If not look at my how to root the Acer video and let me know.

Dave Here: @Joester818 it sounds like you haven't rooted your Acer yet. You can watch my how to root an Acer A500 video as long as it's not updated to 3.2 but version 3.01 or 3.1

mrliniutalobo1: first of all did you install clockwork mod ? O.O

Dave Here: @bluephi96 I haven't done it in a while but you need to install clock work recovery and flash it from the app itself.

Dave Here: @bluephi96 no prob, just go to the market and search ROM manager. Download and install then click the flash clockwork mod recovery button. Let me know if that works or not. Good luck

manny7010: I followed step by step on your video but every time I got an android with an exclamation point! Please help

prettymama1968: Have the same problem with Acer iconia 500, problem with recovery.

Dave Here: @TheHoot7 Nice video man, left a comment and a thumbs up

Javier Sosa: what do i do when i get the android with an exclamation mark?

Mark M: NOTE - It's not "power down" it's VOLUME DOWN and power.

Darlene Barni: I got to the first screen with the messages, Erasing cache before SD update SD Update CMD Recovery Update package SD Card update Zip Booting recovery Kernel Image. Then the Green android show up on the screen for a short time then he is laying on his back with a big red triangle with an ! in the middle. Can you help me as to what is next, throwing this Acer Iconia A 500 in the dumpster. You Help is much needed. Thank You

vmd: DITTO.....forgot pattern. Went to "sign into Google" screen". NOT rooted. Purchased NEW. Have TWO google profiles (1 year >), only one google profile still has same password. Have pushed buttons (ALL - ALL ways). Tried usb keyboard to which "esc" did bring up another locked screen. Got dead Android, got Safe Boot, and of course the "sign into Google" to which NOTHING is effective. STILL locked. Downloaded a bunch of files I know absolutely NOTHING about to attempt a "hack" to my own A500 tablet.

Richard Ryan E. Gonzalez: i get stuck at the ANDROID LOGO WITH AN EXCLAMATION MARK... cant geet into recovery. please help

Jez Nario: stuck at what seems like a dead android with that red triangle with a black exclamation mark in the middle. what does that mean?

Dave Here: I've been working so many hours I haven't find the time to make a video of the newest root method. I have looked into it and it seems very difficult. I will try to work on it when I have a half a day to do so. Thanks

Rod Ski: Thanks for getting back to me,it wasn't rooted.everything was factory.thought I was doing a regular update let a few times before.but thanks anyways.

Rod Ski: I can't get my A500 to do anything but show acer,it happened after an update.how can I recover?

TheHoot7: Sup Dave hey check out my first video on Acer a500 video if you get a chance

Gavin Foyle: whenever i do this after the ota ics update, it takes me to a screen with an android guy laying down wth his stomach open like surgery or somthin lol

Dave Here: @bluephi96 awesome! No prob bro.

bluephi96: @SSDave4 i got it Dave, thanks a million !!!!

Dave Here: Doing an ota update with a rooted device isn't good... Lol, I would either check xda or Google and see what others have done. Sorry I don't know what else to do.

Big Joe's Mobile Reviews: Can you tell me what is wrong with my acer A500. All i get after i hold down the volume down and power button it shows an android with an exclamation in the center. I do not get the same menu as you. Any help would be appreciated.

justin roberts: Yea its shows a dead driud

bluephi96: I tried this same method and it gives me the android with the triangle and exclamation point.. I am rooted because i have root explorer and it asked for super user rights and i granted them etc. etc. I am running 3.0.1. You don't have to install clockwork mod or install or flash a recovery first ?

chocho pancho: after i hit the power buttons and let go after the white text, only a little android cartoon comes and i'm stuck there....i have the acer tablet...it looks exactly like the one u have

Benjamin Caban: i get an android with an exclamation logo to

Joey22688: People getting the android with explanation sign, you have to install a custom recovery first, most popular are CWM touch and TWRP, but there are also others. Also you must install the v8 unlocked bootloader by skilax_cz. You can use a very easy to use application called "Afterota" which will pretty much do everything for you with a click of a button (unlocked bootloader + different recovery choices).

vmd: Now three months later . . . same status. Trying netgear wireless usb router in hopes it will grab signal but still don't know what I'm doing. Have seen some other processes to reboot with a bootloader? Have the mini sd card in the PC now to download files to it but nonetheless, the pc doesn't recognize the tablet as having files, only as a camera. I tried to install another driver but "it won't start/failed to start". Thanks everyone, perhaps someone will provide instructions?

Alfredo Cardenas: Hola, tengo un problema con mi iconia a100 no puedo seleccionar nignuna de las opciones para poder resetear mi tablet, debido a que olvide la contraseña el patron que utilizaba para entrar, en fin, me dice (No such file or directory) update.zip no se a que se refiera, no se si tu puedas ayudarme!!!!!

bluephi96: @SSDave4 you have a link for clockwork MOD for the acer. thanks for the quick response

TheNerdVoice: When I try this, I have a dead robot with a red triangle and an open belly flap. No idea what to do.

TheNerdVoice: Also, this is AFTER I've done recovery.

Terri Hamilton: I am having the same problem as everyone else. End up with an android dude on his back with a red exclamation logo. Has anyone ever figured this out?

Pericles6117: same thing here:HELP!

chocho pancho: my acer after the letters pop up i let go then a triangle and the android thing pops up not way pops up in urs can u help me

Dave Here: @chochodepancho Did you root your tablet? If your not sure then you probably haven't. Check out my other video to see how to. It's easy unless your running 3.2

vmd: Many others' have similar issues. Personally have posted on every site I've been fortunate enough to locate through other's efforts (thanks Alex). Have read and re-read instructions. Haven't been successful in installation of anything. Was in process of a download of some sort when froze. Took for ride around town hoping to pick up WiFi signal to no avail. Will PAY for successful instructions (step-by-step). Anyone?

Dave Here: I haven't kept up with the Acer. You should check this forum and site out forum period tegraowner period c o m

Perry Eastham: I have a A 500 that wont go past the part where it is saying, " booting recovery kernel image. Any thoughts on why it wont go one so I can reset the tablet?

geminitiff71: I got to the screen where you can see 'wipe data/factory reset'. but when I press the power button to make a selection, nothing happens. I have the acer A100. Is it very different from the A500 ??

polskatour: my power button doesn't seem to do anything
