    Hi,

    I've got the Acer Iconia a500 tab, running 3.0.1, I've recently had a System Update prompt (v1.139.05, 23.51 Mb) but it never works. It downloads, unzips and restarts then I get the 'droid with the exclamation mark and it eventually boots up and says "Update failed". I've tried a system wipe, no joy and I've tried the Power On + Volume Button reset method, this just
    Says its "Booting Kernel Image", I get a breif progress bar then get the Triangle Exclamation Mark again :-/

    The tab isn't rooted (I've tried Gingerbreak, but it just hangs at the last step) and Chains SU Update Fix doesnt work... and the tab itself works just fine so it's not bricked, but I'd really like to wipe, reload and put the update on.

    Has anyone seen this problem before and got a fix? I work in I.T but n00b to Android - any help welcome.
    Thanks,

    - Martin
