    Factory Reset Won't Work! Locked out of my a100 lost password. Going Crazy haha

    I have tried a hard reset with the volume up button + power button until vibrates then switching screen lock on and off. I see the Erasing user data...Erasing cache... come up then I let go and all it does is gives me the acer logo and proceeds to bootup like normal. I have tried about 100 times lol

    What am I missing here?

    Also I have tried sticking a small pin into the reset hole and doing it that but but it doesn't work either.

    I purchased the a100 with a password on thinking it would be easy to reset but not having any luck. I don't think this has been rooted although not sure how to check.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Thank You!

    If the factory reset isn't working (weird, normally it does), follow the thread for the stock ROM in my signature and reflash the OS.

    Tried that and all I get is

    Erasing Cache before SD update

    SD Update cmd: recovery
    --update-package=SDCARD: update.zip

    Booting recovery kernel image

    Recovery verified failed ...

    It sounds like somebody screwed up the recovery. That would cause the factory reset and the sdcard update to both not work. What bootloader info is displayed in the upper corner when it is booting? If it is locked, there might be nothing you can do.

    That is the unlockable bootloader, so it is impossible to flash the recovery though it. If you can get adb access with the tablet booted, there might be a way to get passed the lock screen. But USB debugging would have to been enabled by the previous user.
