I was making a note in a notepad app I can't remember the name of, it was an app that I downloaded within a few weeks of getting the tablet. however I didn't see it die when I went to use it later I found it stuck on the splash screen.
I'm thinking of trying the steps here:
unBRICK your ACER A500 ICONIA TABLET!!! Restore to 1.141.07 OTA UPDATE!!! - PPCGeeks
but I can't seem to get the files
