    Got a super deal on an Acer Icona A500 tablet. Store demo at half price. Last in stock and they are not getting any more. The problem is.....
    This Droid was installed with a demo OS and it will not update. Every 2 min while you are using it, it reverts back to the demo slide show. Tried factory reset.

    Android Version = (honeycomb) 3.0.1.
    Build number = Acer_A500_1.109.20_PA_DEMO
    Model Number = A500
    Model ID = A501
    Flex Version = 02_PA_DEMO

    Take it back to the store and tell them to remove the Demo Version.

    You can't use it with that installed, and they should have known better.

    Chances are they are waiting for you to bring it back in, because they realize they forgot to remove that OS, and
    they know you will have to get it removed before you can make use of your tablet.

    Tried. It was the last A500, the demo, and TARGET is discontinuing this item. refund only. The price break I got the day after xmass brought it to $244.00 before tax. That was the end of our xmass fund. I be a poor man. $80.00 for a no-questions asked insurance that I cant afford. Guess I now learn to root and flash ROM. Trying to find a direct download of:

    busybox.apk,
    Thor A500 ROM v14.2 - Android 3.2.1
    and I guess clokwork
    all for the Acer Icona A500 running Nvidia Tegra 2, MultiCore

    Cant use the market, must be direct download. inks would be very helpful.
