    Hello I recently got an android tablet that was a display and come to notice that when ever I try to factory reset it I keep getting all the stuff that was on the display tablet. Its as if I am still looking at it at Target or Walmart or something. Is there a way to remove the features that are on a tablet that is up on display? Or will I have to Jail brake it to get past this?

    It probably had a special recovery setup to restore the display instead of a fresh clean tablet. You will need to restore the factory recovery through jail breaking, which is called rooting in Android but you actually need to flash the recovery. Check out the Acer section of the forum to see if you can figure out how to do this.
