    how to get into recovery

    Okay so I want to know how to get into recovery right now I am still stock. When I power off and hit vol down+power it does something but I think it puts me into download mode. It says erasing cache before update then it does something else and then I get andy android and he lays on his back with a red arrow coming from his chest. Then when I reset everything is still there no reset happened. So all Accoplished is wiping the cache. So can someone please explain to me what I am doing wrong? I would like to know just in case I cant boot up and I need to do a master reset.

    Thank you,
    CHarlie

    You were in the original acer recovery. With this you cqn only flash original acer roms when they are on the external sd and called update.zip.

    For factory reset when the tab is off, turn off screen lock switch. Hold Vol+ and Power button till tab vibrates. Then turn on and off screen lock repeatedly until screen shows erasing cache and erasing user data. Tab is doing factory reset.

    Wow thank you very ,such for replying. So with volume down+ power it is just to install Acer roms I guess that is the last fail safe if factory reset does not work and also for updates. Volume up+ power then switch back and forth That has to be one of the oddest ways to do a factory reset I ever heard of.anyway thank you very much.
