When you flashed the recovery and boot files, which did you use? I changed the bootloader on my A500 over the weekend and used V8 (with Thor's Touch recovery).

Once you've done that, you should be able to boot in to recovery (power on + volume down) and flash a ROM from the SD card (think you'd prolly have to put a ROM on the SD card using a card reader).

I realize that you may not want a custom ROM on there, but it'd do until we got the tablet back to life
I've used several different things so I'm not sure if I had the wrong combination or not.

Some things I read said it all depended on using things that all 'fit together' with whatever is on the tablet.

Problem is I don't know what is on the tablet.

And a custom rom is more than ok, just not sure what to try to flash.

Also I tried a hard reset and all it did was boot loop
