Did this video help you?

John VE: spyware bullcrap downloader

PerspicuousLoris: It doesn't seem to be recognizing my A500, it's definitely running 4.0.3 and I've triple checked I have USB Debug on and I reinstalled the drivers, nothings working

Mirza Kharrasov: baidu root

Denis Skibin: freaking crap, not working, not reboot!

Александр Плыкин: i really suppose where your hands begin if u couldn't press a few buttons on your pc and set a tablet

La BabY ChuLa: with the new app is taking a lot of time it hasnt started rooting yet :/

daveyjones music: mine says done but it did not reboot

La BabY ChuLa: i cant install the ICS root tool in my computer for some reason 

K Smith: Hmmm seems I'm not the only one to get the "no A500 with USB Debugging Detected" message. I'm not too sure what it could be. I tried running as administrator and even tried running in compatibility mode. Still no joy :| Anyone have any ideas on how to remedy this?

Djoldie777: руки трясутся как у мудака

popicu: did you by any chance do a version of ICS for Windows 8.1 as well? :D Dunno if that's the prob, but i get the same no A500 was detected kinda message :|

vali kote: it isnt rebooting

Seamless Oo: Mine won't reboot just says done and nothing happens

Jacob Green: The app says "No A500 with USB Debugging Detected!" PLZ HELP!!

rslh: Gaah, now you tell me. :-)

blackthund3r Channel: @HaxinatioN hehehe thanks ;) I do like my iOS but the opportunity to produce this was too hard to not seize and IT WORKS! :D

blackthund3r Channel: Reinstall the firmware :)

lokii2000100: I know more about all this crazy hacking stuff now cause I rooted my phone and overclocked :) but I dont think cmw works with ics 4.0.3? i cant find any that work. im also having trouble on finding compatable kernels.

blackthund3r Channel: @mrhappysad and yes it will work with the OTA :)

blackthund3r Channel: to unroot, download the Android Update ZIP for your version (probably 1.031.00 or 1.033.00 - see settings), copy it to a MicroSD Card, rename it to update.zip then boot your tablet with power and volume down and it will go back to stock :)

blackthund3r Channel: Use the A500 Root Tools app to remount /system read/write or use ICS Root 7.1 and install the remount patcher :)

Keshia Gibson: My friend actually rooted my tablet and I'm totally clueless when it comes to electronics.. I don't even know what firmware is.. lol.. I'm also needing to know how to unroot so if u could please email me instructions on how to do it cause I'm literally an electronic illiterate thanks

MasterShakeIII: make the camera shakier, I LOVE motion sickness

blackthund3r Channel: A510 uses different methods. See the appropriate XDA forum for that :)

Frailing Sosa: Please help me, how do I install the tegraowners v170 ROM on the Acer a500 that has been rooted with method

Lady Minnie: I get the message that no a500 was detected :(

skins4thewin: Yes, I want to know about the official release too! And I read something about that this will only work with certain firmware versions... what exactly is the difference between the version of android and your firmware? Im a newb, so if someone could point me in the right direction id appreciate it

Slavoj Alois: Will I be able to install CWM on this newer Version or be able to unlook bootloader? I have already upgraded to ICS through the Play Store, and rooted it but can not install CWM or get into recovery. I want to upgrade to Jellybean. After spending God knows how long on this I am happy to have found your Video. Your the first person to explain why I can not install CWM. I not sure now what root I used, it took several attempts. Please help? I'm not sure what to do next down grade and start again

blackthund3r Channel: It does :) There's TWRP and ClockworkMod by thor2002ro - both are on that repo. They're both very good recoveries. The TegraOwners ROM is very nice and has overclocking ability. There is also the FlexReaper ROM which has an overclockable kernel and is a very nice update to the stock Acer ICS ROM. There's loads to choose from if you know where to look ;) TegraOwners and the XDA-Developers A500 Android Development section are very useful.

jose manuel gomez casasola: please traduction to spanish :$

Alejandro Pavón Ruiz: Hey, two things :S my tablet doesnt reboot, and the program for rooting is different from the video, yes I downloaded it from your link, advices?

Felix Martinez: dude wtf u have android 3.2.1 not 4.0.3 what a liver

blackthund3r Channel: driversssssss

gnexus01: It says it's rooted, but the tablet is refusing to let me remove all the pre loaded junk that came with it.

Xeronage96: Perfetto!

8218521DJ: NVM got it...

aniu8835: I just have a question, I thought that your program installed CWM but I guess it doesn't? Cause I tried to boot to recovery to make a backup and I just get a little android guy laying down with a red triangle out of it's chest with an exclamation point. I'm assuming this is the standard download mode? So how would I go about putting CWM on here to make a backup of the tablet? Thanks.

blackthund3r Channel: should so

connor and curtis zuccotti: how do i get back to honeycomb

Mario Vizcarra: hey! this is great thanks... but I have a problem... in linux i get this message: mv: can't rename '/system/recovery-from-boot.p': No such file or directory I beg for help

mwmany2: it says "no a500 USB debbuging detected"

blackthund3r Channel: @mrhappysad not to worry v6 is just a large update and it will work w/ the OTA :)

blackthund3r Channel: @charpego Ensure USB Debugging is enabled and that you have the latest version of ICS Root (I'm pushing out an update every 0.5 ~ 3 days at the moment to handle new leaks and add new features)

hamitoumohamedmh: i have win 7 when i connect my tab it tells me plz connect ?????

romez2703: got usb drivers from acer.com ...running fine so cheers mate. but wat is bash that installed with root. sorry I'm a compete novice lol

james sims: Awesome. Works a treat. Was really worried about rooting my Acer. Now worries what so ever. Thanks.

lokii2000100: cool. i dont need a rom i just want a new kernel with overclock and r/w. right now im stuck on ur vid when u need to go to the link and put in ur cpuid.

FikusHilton: suka

Fredrik Dahl Larsen: I can't get this to work. I've installed the USB drivers, put the a500 in debugging mode, but the root tool is saying "no a500 with debugging connected". any ideas?

blackthund3r Channel: Use device manager to check that the ADB device is connected
