Default Acer Recovery Installer on A100

OK, in case any of you are wondering if the Acer Recovery Installer app from the market works on the A100, the answer is no.

At least for the moment it doesn't work.

I downloaded and ran it on my rooted A100, then selected the option to install Clockwork Recovery and ran it.

I then asked the app to reboot me into the newly installed recovery but I just got:

Recovery verified failed ...
Spin forever

So, if this happened to you, don't panic. Just power off, then back on and your device should boot right up as normal.

If at this point you hold the volume up (instead of down like the A500) and power up, then it seems to try and boot into recovery or do something but then just errors out and gets stuck again.

Anyhow, I sent the info to the developer and I am still experimenting. More info as I have it.

... well i found this over at XDA http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1615881, except just as you mentioned above, on the A100 vs. the A500 you use the Volume Up key to make a selection (when doing UnLock) hold it and press the On Button on top to reboot.

You need to unlock the bootloader before you can flash the recovery.

Ive never had this problem but I think you get hold of Google support and they can reset it for you.. I'm not sure where i heard that or what i just remember something along those lines...
