Recovery a 500

Postby Yourte72 » 25 Jan 2017, 06:37

Hello

I tried to explain in the shakespeare language. I have a old acer A500 honey comb 3.21.
I would like root it but it doesn't function.
This tablet is correctly recognise by the pc, but when i tried to extract the cpuid in the Apx mode nothing happen.

I also tried with emulator but didn't see any in formation about the cpuid.

Donc je sèche

Cordialy have a good day

I think you need to update to ICS first....the honeycomb boot loader is locked and in order to unlock it you need to go to play store and get acer iconia update enhancement app then get ICS ota.....
Another option is bad sector. I don't know if it will work on honeycomb bootloader......but in order to use bad sector you need sbk ....there is an app you can get....sbkcalculator is what its called.

As long as your pc recognizes it when plugged into usb normally then usbdeview (free) will show the serial no.
AfterOta lite should also extract the cpuid/serial no.

use the full AfterOTA version to root and update bootloader and recovery
https://docs.google.com/uc?id=0Bz4rH6yL ... t=download
then install latest recovery from this site if you are planning on using thors roms
viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1490
and bootloader from here
viewtopic.php?f=43&t=1143
then format data and cache to f2fs
install rom and gapps
that's all there is to it
BTW google search found all these links in seconds - use it to find things you say you can't find

hello

Yes ,agree it's ok for recovery 2.00 4 and bootloader v9

But, what i mean it's can you advice me about the choice of good rom.
Did i proceed carefuly step by step or for example directly on Omniron 5.1 or 4.4
or cm12 final
thanks for your answers and take your time to help me .

you need to try them out and decide yourself
That's the whole reason for doing all this
They all work fine and leave it up to personal choice
Just install one and if you want to try a different one than backup the installed rom before flashing a new one
It's easy to reinstall a backed up rom
This isn't an acer site that is just there for upgrades
It's for tinkerers to play with their tablets and learn how they operate a bit more.
And you need to follow the steps to prepare the tablet properly to install these custom rom.gapp packages as stated earlier
