Default Bricked Acer Iconia A500

Hi All
I have bricked my acer iconia a500 while trying to install ICS over rooted 3.0.1,
i had CWM recovery installed from market app...

I flashed ICS rom using recovery then the iconia started with acer logo and since then i could not see a single dot on my iconia, only when i power on power light starts and nothing else

When connected to charger it charges at least ....


Please help me
Thanks and regards in advance...

Have you tried holding volume down (left button on volume rocker) when powering up?
if you still have CWM recovery installed, this should take you back into it.

From there you can restore from a backup (assuming you have made a backup!)

If not restore a backup, then you should be able to wipe everything and then flash a new ROM back on your A500.

I only rooted a couple of days ago and had an issue when I flashed Thor's ICS on to my A500 - I hadn't wiped before flashing... I was able to sort it out by booting into clockwork, wiping and reflashing

I tried everything told on different forums but nothing worked,

Then used the following link
[TUT] Revert OTA 3.2 back to 3.0.1

I run this update after 5 mins it told me that couldnt detect tablet, please hard reset your tablet by pressing reset switch (next to USB port) using paper clip then press power for 3 sec while holding the reset button, then luckily I saw something on my tablet, "in download mode" and it started updating my tablet...

Back to 3.0.1, now looking to update to 3.2

Regards

Do you want to go back to rooted or not?

As you're on 3.0.1, then it is easy to root and then you can start running custom ROM's (if you want)...

I started using this one today [ROM] ICS 4.03 Icylicious Rooted, Busybox, etc. Added Stripped Version 02/29/12
I find it's fast, and pretty much stable (haven't had one error yet)
