    Before you install the rom you have to do this in apx mode to prevent bricking your device: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...6&postcount=26
    This will reformat all partitions of the internal sd and install unlocked v8 ics bootloader + clockworkmodrecovery 1.7.3. Then you can flash tegraowners rom and gapps.

    First look at my last post and do that.

    Now power off tablet. Go in recovery, select install from zip file, and choose the rom zip, when finished install gapps the same way. Reboot tablet, and you are good to go.

    Yepp. Download it. Then power off tablet. Hold reset button, and press power button for 3 seconds, until it lights up. Now your tab is in apx mode. Then star A501A.bat in dos prompt. When it finished, power off tablet, hol Vol- Button, and press Power until tab starts. Then you get into recovery. Go to Mounts and Storage. Ther format System 3 times. Power off tab. Go in APX Mode and run A501B.bat. When finished, go in recovery. Choose install zip file from SD Card. Then select the rom and install it. When finished, install gapps the same way. Reboot tablet, and you are done. Tegraowners ICS!

    So copy the zip files to the root of the sd card. not unzip or anything.

    Tegraowners_ICS_ROM_v170.zip
    BabSector.zip
    gapps-ics-20120429-signed.zip

    So this is going to work on my A500 as its has file names A501 in the badsectors file and on that site. Just checking

    Yepp. Filesystem is the same.

    Zip files of rom and gapps don't need to be unzipped.

    Hold reset button, and press power button for 3 seconds, until it lights up.

    tryed this and it just powers the tablet up as normal. no change or menu or dos prompt.

    also. tryed other power ons.

    hold power and volume up. it goes to the Skrillax_cz's Bootloader V6 bootmenu mode.
    Reboot
    Fastboot Mode
    Boot recovery
    Set boot secoundary kernal image
    Set debug mode on
    Wipe cache

    Hold power and volume down and it goes to a android lying down with red triangle with ! in it.

    Hold restart and power it powers on and loads into android as normal.

    Tablet must be off. Pick a needle and press resewt button, and keep it pressed, press power button for 3 seconds. When it lights up, you are in apx mode. The screen remains black. Connect it to your pc, it should recognize it as "APX".

    ok think i got it. turned tablet off pushed restart button in and held it and pushed power for 3 secounds and now the power button is light up white and screen is black / off. have pluged in usb cable to tablet and pc.

    But can not see it in my computer and nothing has popped up on pc or tablet.
