Well, I tried their steps (up to the point where I should have gotten "Erasing Userdata" [sic]

I got the vibrating when I'd held the vol up and power long enough, and it went to the
ACER screen. That's it. How long (in minutes) does it take, holding the vol up AND
trying to turn the screen lock switch on and off (which is difficult for me, since I have
large hands)? I kept going for a few minutes with nothing to show for it.

I never got to a point where it said anything about update.zip, an external SD card that,
as I already mentioned, I don't have right now, or USB, etc.....

Suggestions? Thanks,
