How to: Unroot acer a500 back to 3.2

*****WARNING THIS WILL UNROOT YOUR TABLET*****

Copy this file to the root of your mini sd memory card, reboot while holding volume down and watch the magic.

As with any method you do this at your own risk. It took me a while to find a untouched file, hopefully it will help someone else out as well.

Assuming CWM isn't installed. Otherwise the zip will have to be installed from CWM (just a helpful side note :) ) otherwise thanks for this

I just tried this and it still didn't fix my problem...

I was running one of Thor's ICS roms and wanted to unroot and go back to stock to get the ICS OTA but that process has hit a wall. I reverted back to stock recovery and installed the 3.0.1 unstable build but now I am stuck at the Android screen and it just loops that screen over and over. I tried installing the rom in this thread but it didn't make any difference...
Anyone have any tips?

Thank you

Use APX mode to go back to buggy 3.0.1 again if you can
