Bricked AC100

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

I got the AC100 and tried to root it and install the Gapps (i needed Gmail and Calendar).

I messed around with the adb from Google SDK and i erased the files from "system/apps" by accident

so the device now got stuck on the startup screen (the android logo keeps flashing once per second)

I searched the web alot and found instructions on how to enter recovery mode

so know i have the ac100 conected via USB to my XP machine, and i have installed the nVidia USB recovery driver

(it showed up as APX in the Device Manager once i turned on the recovery mode).

Right now, the restore/update mode doesn't work anymore either (holding the HOME button while turning it on

doesn't show the 2 option update screen)

I have NVFlash downloaded and it sees the device (nvflash --sync displays info the way it should)

Can anyone please help with instructions on how to get my notebook working again?

I'll be pleased with the stock Android, i'd be happy with Cyanogen Mod.

Please help.

Thank you.

Good news

I finally got it to run. I used the backup partition imgs i found (along with the partition table txt) and rewrote all the partitions with NVFLASH using the rawdevicewrite method described here:


It's back to stock android right now.

I'll look into installing Gmail and Gtalk later on and MUCH MORE careful

If anyone can point me in the right direction, that would be great.
