good evening to all

First of all, I am sorry for my English because I'm French.
acer a500 my tablet is stuck on ACER logo.

I tried different combinations of button but it does not work (stuck on droid logo acer yes slept with red triangle).

my tablet is original, I've never changed or been in the setting for USB debugging mode.
I tried different method that I found on the internet (website XDA, phonandroide, planet android ... etc)
the tablet is recognized by my pc in APX mode.
when I run the software PBJ20upgrade.exe, I follow the instructions and when I get to the update, the tablet turns on the Acer logo on the top left and "entering acer download mode" and the software will "sorry ! the process of setting a level failed, please follow the instructions.. "I follow the instructions but I still have the same problem.

many website tells me to facing you to find a solution to my problème.vous are my last hope before the tablet part to the trash.

thank you all for reading and I hope you can help me. :pray:
A +

Since you say your tablet is stock.(nothing changed). What I suggest is to flash a full ROM package. From the list on this thread.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthr ... ?t=1816560

You were stock before and flashing one of those files will put you back that way again.

I don't want to send you away from this forum but if you have not already rooted and installed custom recovery and unlocked the boot loader than the only way forward is really to go back to stock, first. From there you can do mods if you want.

Well I'm confused. At what point are your in the update. You said it worked then it got stuck in apx.
How do you determine update worked?
Did you use a full Acer ROM package from the link I suggested?
Please list the steps you took, it is important to know.

good evening

I'm using a rom acer pack the link you gave me.
I followed the tutorials from XDA, I put my UID then it starts updating. then about 10% growth tablet restarts and displays the top left "entering acer download fashion" and the software on the pc brand "sorry the update process was interrupted, follow the instructions"
So, I follow the instructions that are rebooted the tablet in APX Mode and try again.
10% of the growth and the tablet starts at the top left "entering acer download fashion" but the update completes normally and end "congratulation, the update is complete."
remains on the shelf "entering acer download fashion" but not as restarts in the tutorials.

after one hour, I cut it and when I started, it nothing happens .il are only seeing the power is turned on and a black screen.

Here are the steps I've taken. I try several rom acer package but still the same.

mrmazak thank you for taking time to my problem.

I think I understand the problem now. I think you are combining multiple methods together.

The ROM packages I linked you to do not require you to use the cpuid at apx mode.

Download one of the packages and put it on your micro SD card. Make sure the file is renamed "update.zip" no capitols and not ".zip.zip" at the end.

Put the SD card in the tablet and power it on holding the down volume button

That should be all.

good evening

I tried with the SD and the correct filename but when I power and low volume, the tablet power comes on but it does not vibrate and does nothing else.

Then please try the "euu" package from that link. It requires apx mode and the cpuid.

If that does not work "badsector" will be your next option. I do not have a link for it though. Freightyard, One of the gurus here on tegraowners has posted before he has a moddified version that will fix any bricked device and update the boot loader and recovery all in one.

good evening

So if I understand correctly, there is nothing more to do as Freightyard has not posted any change to "badsector."

and reinstall a new "bootloader" ... :shifty:
