    Hi all,


    it is not possible to install a bootable image in my a510 anymore. The log says:

    I: Can't partition non-vfat: datamedia
    I: Can't format unkmown volume: /emmc

    No matter what I tried. That applies to all the stock images.

    Here is what I did. To root the device I followed this howto:

    Android-Hilfe.de - Einzelnen Beitrag anzeigen - [A511] Root - Diskussionsthema (German)

    That worked without problems. After that I had, and still have, a working CWM-Based Recovery v6.0.1.9. Next step was installing a CM-image (instead of doing a backup first, silly I know). It was the cm-10-20121111-UNOFFICIAL-a510.zip. The result was a system which doesn't boot. I just tried that again. Everything looks fine and then it hangs at the Acer screen for ever.

    After that I tried to flash stock images. No avail, see list of images.

    I did this already:

    -reset button
    -vol up power lock to do a wipe
    -images:
    OS_Acer_Acer.AV041.A510.RV28RC04.EMEA._A40I_A.zip OS_Acer_RV28.RC04.EMEA.DE_A40I_A.zip
    OS_Acer_Acer.AV041.A510.RV34RC05.EMEA._A40I_A.zip recovery_nothrills.img
    cm-10-20121111-UNOFFICIAL-a510.zip OS_Acer_RV28.RC02.WW.GEN1_A40I_A.zip
    cm-10-20120919-UNOFFICIAL-a510-bis.zip
    -inst from SDCard
    -inst via sideload
    -in fastboot mode: fastboot erase userdata
    -all kind of wipes
    -fix permissions

    So, the Acer images do not install at all and the CM ones install but do not boot.

    Any ideas? :smokingsomb:


    Thanx,

    esheep
