Petpet Nulaosam: Hello. I have an Acer Iconia Tab A200, and I've tried to do a hard reset (Power on, Volume+, Orientation lock switch) but it says the following: Erasing Userdata... Erasing Cache... It then reboots, and does nothing. It hangs on the Acer logo.
TubeMeister: i get green android with yellow exclamation mark.
LaMouleQuiCoule: when i boot with the volume button, all i get to is a droid working and then he flips with a red exclamation mark, i tried everything including the update.zip think, nothing works
bensoflyyy: hey i have an acer iconia a510, running official 4.1.2 jellybean, i wonder how i can go to recovery mode cause i don't know how. i wanna install cwm then flash a custom rom in it but i dont know how to get to its stock recovery. thanks
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!
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
iOSTerminal: mines just dies when i try
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.
murmaider2: where did you get clockwork recovery for the a500, it doesnt exist
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: 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
vmd: Just checked Dave, is forum period tegraownerS period c o m Thanks for keeping the post up Best wishes always (still haven't got it but trying!
justin roberts: Yea its shows a dead driud
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: 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?
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?
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
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.
