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

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.

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?

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?
