[TUTORIAL] How to flash .bin files on Acer Liquid/E

54 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Nice guide and easy to follow, but doesn't mention Acer drivers.

I almost bricked my phone trying to install leaked Android 2.2 ROM. Ended up with Acer download tool stalled saying device 01 not connected and the Liquid showing USB fastboot screen with a flickering line across the top.

Disconnected the phone, tried to enter recovery but couldn't, screen was stuck on Acer splash screen. Then I installed the drivers from ACER's UK website; loaded up Acer download tool V3.1; and tried again. Thankfully the phone was recognised and it worked this time.

Sorry! :/ i completely forgot drivers.Now drivers mentioned and download link added. Sorry again! :P

I am stuck with the Download Tool, it says: Can remove USB Cable. Restoration is needed. And in some label below: [Error]: Fastboot is Failed.

Any idea?

[sOLVED!]: Tried again after entering bootloader (I think) with the spider-friendly button combinations and worked! So I have to change my device description :P

Did you download the .bin and move it to that folder? Well it isn't completely necessary to move it there, just nice to have it all in one place.
