    ICS OTA Update Fails on Rooted 3.2.1

    Hi All -

    I have a rooted A500 with:

    Android v3.2.1
    Kernel v2.6.36.3+
    Build number: Acer_A500_7.014.14_COM_GEN1

    I also have ClockworkMod Recovery rev1.3.4 installed (through Acer Recovery Installer v2.74).

    I downloaded the ICS update several times since it became available yesterday (4/25) and the update fails every time after the reboot.

    It always fails the same way: After the reboot, the acer logo displays briefly then a bee with a progress bar comes up then stops with an red exclamation mark inside of a triangle.

    I made sure the device was plugged into an AC power source during the installation process, but this has not resolved the issue.

    Any thoughts on how to get past this?

    You can't flash a stock ROM in a rooted tab, you need to revert back to a stock ROM before updating.

    since your rooted try a custom ics rom like thors or flexstriker, operate with far less problems than OTA

    Thank you all for your prompt replies.

    The way I got past this was (as suggested) to restore the stock recovery image from Acer (through ClockworldMod recovery).

    Of course, I lost root and the ability to install custom ROMs, but I'll work with the factory config for a while and see what it's capable of.

    Can you tell me where you got your stock image? I'm having a similar problem.

    I think if you look for it on XDA forum you find. Pay atention for the versions. The best way is recover the system w/ CMW runing the update.zip tha contains a STOCK rom, ithink. I did like this and i recovered my tab

    Hi, I've got the same problem,

    version = 3.2.1
    kernel = 2.6.36.3+
    build = acer_a500_7.014.14_com_gen1

    only difference is i'm not rooted, I switched back to this rom as I think it is stock?
    But i'm also getting the failed update problem.

    Any ideas on how to fix?
