    Camera Problem
    I got this Acer iconia a500 tab for christmas and stupid as i was i downgraded from stock 3.2 to 3.0.1 everything was fine until i realised my back camera wasnt working... so i got confused, and thought lets go online and see what other people have experiences, and nothing helped... so i tried to update it back to 3.2 hoping it would fix the problem, and it sais "No Update: Your system is up to date" which baffled me... any help?

    Wifi Problem
    so now about a couple weeks in with this 3.0.1 the internet has totally died, it can connect to my hub (BT HomeHub 2) but i cant get no data coverage at all, i click browser, it sais webpage unavailable and i cant sync my google account, so no market for me :( i have a usb stick if that helps i cant actually access a file manager as i have no coverage :(

    Tried solutions:
    i have tried factory resetting it for the wifi problem, nothing helped and ive also tried hard resetting it, nothing worked... i dont have a microSD yet but it should be here today in the post,

    P.S The reason why i downgraded was because i wanted to root it, but only caused dramatic problems...

    did work great but it appears to have been a rooted USA 3.2.1 rom.

    There is an even easier way to root as posted by ZOANDROID here:

    The ONLY reason I reverted back to the stock UK 3.2.1 rom was in anticipation for ICS

    I reverted back using this:

    BUT I lost root in the process.

    Glad it is semi-sorted. As I said before I believe this is the ROM you need to return it to stock:

    MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

    Just put the file on your micro SD and rename to update.zip.
    Power off, then hold volume down, then press and hold power until it vibrates,
    but keep holding volume down until it says Erasing cache before SD update.
    It will then flash the update.zip on the card.
    Hopefully you will be back to stock.

    When you have re-installed, registered etc.. You should get another system update to 3.2.1.

    Note: I am not an expert and only ASSUMED this was the correct one based on this post on XDA:

    xda-developers - View Single Post - [Q] naming of update files is confusing ! Help!

    Personally, I've seen various conflicting stories on it's release date.

    So, I have no idea! :)

    I am tempted to try out Thors' ICS rom :D

    see it in action

    According to the site, not working at the moment is:

    • Camera (I don't use)
    • Camcorder (I don't use)
    • HDMI sound (this is the only thing stopping me as I often watch stuff through my TV)
    • a501 3g modem (mines an A500 anyway)
