> In reply to ake @ 2013-12-18 11:54 from Nw8a - click to readwhen you boot, its stuck to word android in screen? same thing happened to me several times. i followed several steps from xda. i used 3 processes. first, something to do with cpuid, which was difficult because of pressing the reset button, power nad vol+. second is flashing an acer rom. 3rd is rooting. you will lose all data in the tablet but at least you can use the tab again.

Actually Thor and DigitX makes a custom ROM for the A500 that is smooth and their latest 4.3 Rom adds features and makes my A500 super smooth with no issues yet (and its still a test version (the 4.3 Rom)) They have a 4.2 version also.

Take a look :

and this is for the 4.3 version

Dnt ever root your A500. Cos if u do it'll begin to have a glich and most times it freezes. I don't think its necessary to root your acer tab.

HUGELY DISSAPOINTED.
I really expected a functional instrument.

1. WiFi pickup rubbish
2. Browser closes and shuts all sessions often
3. Keypad typing malfunctions often. You can't see what you writing and it has mind of its own. Only way to reset is through all sorts of stupid actions like switching sessions or scrolling ... don't always work....
4. Delayed keyboard response... uuuurgggghhh
5. Does not display images in Google search when you drill into one
6. Youtube freezes. On my iPhone it works perfectly.

I am not a complaining type but this can't be better than some cheap rubbish from China. I am so so dissapointed. After a year I am switching to a product I can trust. Apple.

I am on latest version of OS. I have factory reset plenty. I give up.
I think it is partly to do with android.
What rubbish. In no uncertain terms.
