  19. My Acer b1 730 is not rotating display is this hardware problem or os problem because this is upgraded to 4.4 KitKat.

    1. Is not a kitkat problem, maybe you disable the rotation of screen take a look in settings...

  20. Gracias por todo me salvaste.

    Y un consejo para todos es que, detengan y deshabiliten el windows update durante el proceso entrando en SERVICES.MSC porque la pc va a querer instalar el driver de la tablet y les va a interrumpir el proceso de formateo del tablet. Mil gracias

      I ended up doing myself (with cmd.exe) all the fastboot commands wrote in the flash.xml

      And then it worked! :)

  44. Hello
    I think my 730HD have chip problem, but not sure. Can not wipe ii from recovery, can do factory reset but solves nothing. Stuck at Acer logo.
    Tried this, first part of flashing OK, after restart stuck at acer logo - 11%. No go to proper mode.
    When manualy tried to flash for example recovery, boot and system image, it goes to droidboot mode.
    Tried with two comps, same thing.
    Then, I got idea, used both computers. First flash to 11%, shen tablet stucks, I dissconect it, power off, put on other comp, tried flash recovery image only to go to droid boot mode - it works. Revert it back to first comp, flasher continue, but stops at 26%. OEM partinioning failure.
    I think that chip is defective.
    Is there anz other solution, command, maybe change flag to force things and solve first restart?

    1. It is only drivers problem. Before you install the drivers must disable drivers signature check on windows and better use usb 2.0 ports... You need
      more help just send a email im able to help you
      with teamviewer if you want. Pozdrav

    2. Had similar problems also had problems with some installs that just screwed up the display. Thanks to vampir74 (Captain Awesome) got it all sorted in couple minutes. Just a tip: Win 7 and above gives a lot of crap with the drivers due to digital signature. I installed XP on a Virtual Machine and didn't have any further problems.
