Acer Iconia A200, poor network coverage error, won't update

lillienorrislillienorris Posts: 1Member

I have the Acer Iconia A200 tablet and I'm trying to make sure that it is updated. It has become very slow. When I go to check for software updates I receive the error: "Network Coverage - Network coverage is currently poor. Please move to a location with better coverage to continue." When I first started receiving this error, I only had 2 signal bars on my WIFI so I moved to the room that my WIFI is located in. I had full signal and still received the same error. I did a factory restore on it and went through the setup process and still received the same error. I can get online, download games, etc. Granted watching things like Netflix or anything it is extremely slow and takes a very long time to load. I brought the tablet with me to work today to see if maybe it is just something with my WIFI. I logged into our network here and I am still receiving the same network coverage error. Please help! Thank you in advance!

    it's an error message about Acer server not reachable.

    simply Acer shutted down the old update servers, so now the only way to update or check the latest version, is using the Acer support website:

    I realize this is three years old, but I was wondering why I can't find something later for software. Is this an end of life thing? My image is
    <Acer_AV041_A200_1.073.00_PA_CUS1> Is this the last update?

    Yes, they haven't updated those models in years, and will not update them any longer.

    I downloaded the zip file but don't know how to run it on the tablet. Do I copy it to a Micro SD Card? If so, what's next?
  • billseybillsey Posts: 7,079ACE Pathfinder
    You should place the zip file in the root directory of a SD card that's formatted FAT32. It will be recognized when you boot into diagnostic mode and will give you the option of installing it.
