Thanks: 13

My partner has a bricked A500. It will NOT boot so any utilities


utilising adb/dmesg fail. I can boot into fastboot mode (v0.03.11ICS) but fastboot returns USB write errors stating invalid
partition format "." So, I assume I have to use nvFlash to re-write
the partition table but this still requires the SBK that I can not
generate as I do not know what my CPUID is.
I have read so many threads all offering tweaked variations of
the same process but I haven't found as yet a definitive how-to
on re-creating your CPUID/SBK on a bricked device as they all
assume you either know your CPUID or the tablet stills boots so
you can retrieve it easily.
Does anyone have any links to resources to assist? I currently
can boot into fastboot and APXmode. Attempts to factory reset
seem to kick off OK but then fail with errors erasing data/cache
etc... I have both windows/linux and the tablet is recognized in
APX/fastboot mode on both OS's.

MOST THANKED

ALL-TIME

SUCCESS!! I finally managed to unbrick my tab,

software center )
4- drag and drop the APX.c file in your desktop
5- connect your tablet to the computer (through mini USB) and
put it in APX mode
6- Now on computer fire up Terminal and type this code
Code:

cdDesktop
sudosu
gccapx.coapxlusb1.0

Put your device in APX mode, manually. Then get it.
Sometimes, if you leave it in what you think is APX mode, for a
certain amount of time, you may not be able to connect to it.
So do it fresh.

Hmm thanks.. Meanwhile I did the code tweak as digested here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2331151
And got my cpuid as 0x00000042dfd497
Hope this is what I needed? Although the characters are 14 if I
exclude 0x?
Thanks again mate!

Well, if I'm not mistaken, it should be 16. You can try it either
way.

SUCCESS!!
I finally managed to unbrick my tab, SPECIAL thanks to
@Moscow Desire, @eppeP, @civato and @srbeen.. here's what
i did, thought it might help someone else like me!
Booted my PC in Ubuntu, to extract the CPUID, as i didnt have it
saved. for that i used instructions from this post:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1751978
Nevertheless, i couldnt completely follow it till unbricking, as
somehow things didnt quite work out as expected. Expecially,
the UID i recovered was as i quoted above, filled with many
zeroes.. i got the correct one after tweaking with apx.c file as
advised here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?
t=2331151 because i later realized i was using a 32-bit system.
After recovering my UID, downloaded the "V8-UNL-ICS-HCbootloader-MULTI-cwm.zip" thing, given here: http://forum.xdadevelopers.com/show....php?t=1622425 .. its a simplified form of
nvflash, and is easier to operate for less techno ppl like me.
Booted to windows, downloaded and extracted it, and edited
the v8.bat file to remove any cls commands and see what this
thing does. Then, opened the command prompt with

Administrative rights, and run the V8.bat file... Once my tab was
unbricked, i could easily flash any update.zip package i wanted!!
Sounds easy! but believe me, its easier said than done! took me
over a week to complete the whole process as i tried almost
EVERYTHING as anyone suggested in ANY post to unbrick my
tab! but nevertheless, got the result finally and thats what
matters!
