[/quote]

Good Morning acer- :)

Fastboot mode is "Volume +" + "Volume -" + "flash" + "power" Right?
If it is that, it still do the same problem...

Since it is always giving a "Read File Fail", i´m wondering if the problem is with the content of the folder...

If my memory card is storage "G:"
I have G:\acer_ug\

And inside acer_ug i have:
Acer_LiquidMT_4.000.13_EMEA-GEN1_03.32.01_F02C647B971554CA971B8FAD6438421A
and a folder acer_xx.

Inside acer_xx i have:
Acer_LiquidMT_4.000.13_EMEA-GEN1_03.32.01_1CAB66AF9E9E451A66B80272FF0AA8B6.

And i only have this on my memory card. Is that right?
I´m starting to panik a little :ph34r: lol

Try removing the folder from the SD card and then booting into fastboot or USB Download Mode or any other mode
If you get the same error then see below

Well.....
This is sad but I am thinking that when you first tried to flash via SD download mode [size=5]maybe[/size] the AMSS (BIOS for QC boards ) has been corrupted :( ([b]I THINK SO [/b])
But the device it not hard bricked for sure :)

Many people get problems while flashing via SD card and their devices get soft-bricked
I would recommend taking your your device to the Acer service center (if your device is less than a year old you can get it done for free )
Just tell them something like "" I tried updating to GB and my PC suddenly got a BLUE Screen (common with Windows :P ) ""

Even better would be selling MT and buying a new phone everybody know MT is now an old phone
This maybe your chance to update to something new like Android JB or even WP8

So far i only found 2 ways to solve the problem:

1 Pay/Learn Jtag. But to learn JTag i will need to buy a item to do the "job" and that item cost 120 euros (plus the learning eforth...).
2 Send to acer. Acer told me to talk with the portugal support, and they told me the repairing price: 65 1st H and + 50 €/H if need more than 1....

So ... i dont rly know what i shold do...

And seeing a new rom site drive me nuts :\

If only I read this thread earlier, just updated an Acer Liquid Metal via SD card download method but it failed. Maybe it's soft-bricked now, because when I press key combination to get into SD card download mode again, it only vibrate once :(

He said he tried several .bins but no one worked, but in 1 forum, a guy tolde him to take the batery off for 1 day. And then use an especific .bin. Then, he would have 1 shot to do the recovery, because (for what i understud xD) the metal would release an especific part of ram that would be needed for the recovery. And he did it good. Now, lets the rom fight begin! :D
