    A700 iconia system bar

    I got this tablet off ebay, suppose to be new in box store demo never used. When i booted it up the first time no system bar at the bottom of the page, no circle in bar, no status info in bar no bar at all. I thought i might have done something so i wiped it clean and started all over again, same thing no info bar at the bottom just full screen. I need to find out something so i can return this to the person i bought it from on ebay. Thanks

    since no one ever heard of losing system bar. I would like to ask, i have read about rooting, this tablet has 4.0.1 ICS on it. This tablet appears to be rooted and unlocked. It has super user in the apps and applied, it also says when u boot up in the left top corner "boot loader ICS-MRI 7173de1 (unlock mode) so from what i read it means it is rooted. Now is guess some one rooted it then set it back to factory thru hard reboot and lost the system bar. It has the original 4.0.1 ICS in need to upgrade but if you try Acer it want take it i guess because it has been rooted. My guestion can i go ahead and try to put all the drivers, and install all this other matter to enter a rom like 4.4. kit kat or something without knowing what has been done to this tablet. Some one let me know where to go to find out read something looks like i am stuck with this tablet. Every thing works as new on this tablet except the system bar missing which is the main thing u need to navigate. Thanks ahead of time

    I bought an Acer A700 tablet off ebay, was supposed to be new unused condition. Booted it up and it had no system bar at bottom of page. That means you can't get out of any app you have to reboot, useless. Thru reading on site and exploring this tab i found out it has super user installed on it and on bootup in the left hand corner it reads "boot loader ICS-MRI 7173de1 (unlock mode)" every thing on the tablet seems to work except no navigation bar, no circle in center, and no status info no bar at all full screen. I have played with this thing been on Acer chat and they say hard ware failure. That is before i new it was rooted, i guess that is the reason the update he wanted me to try did not work. I don't know if i try a new OS system if that will even work. I am 68 years old and this is my first android tablet, new ground for me. Most every thing i read is above my knowledge, would appreciate any advice i might just try it. thanks ahead of time

    maybe
    Under the circumstances I would send it back. It is unlikely a demo unit would have been rooted so it seems someone wasn't telling you the whole story.
