Sent from my HTC PH39100 using xda premium
Well I'm probably not going to be here when you are, so I made up a guide 
Enjoy and happy flashing

************************************************** **********
UPDATE MAY 23

Files you need to download

EDIT: see attachments at bottom of post for download

Ok first d/l blackthund3rs a500 manager and the apkFlash Tool, the apx files, (and icsRoot if u need it)
the acer drivers run the acer driver setup.exe, 
the adb/fastboot extract to c:/android and they should install automatically....


pls find a post or thread of BT's and Civs', press the thanks button, this makes them really, really happy!!! 


To Enter APX Mode MANUALLY - Turn your Tab OFF



Righto....You've followed civ's guide and done Steps 1,2,3 and 4 
and you wanna use Blackthund3rs A500 APXFlash Tool.....

The Flashing Process:
First download these 2 files:

The Tools - Blackthund3r_A500_APXFlash_Tool_v0.4.zip and a500 Manager

You've retrieved your SBK from vaches site OR use a500 Managher , and entered it into the window:


and arrived at the Options Window - here we are choosing the top one
"Use an a500 APX FLASH TOOL PACKAGE (.a500apx)"


OK for the next window "PACKAGE SELECT:" 
you need to BROWSE to the folder where you extracted the V3-APX-PACKAGES.zip. 

You want the .a500apx file not the .zip file!!!!



Choose your package!!!


we're almost there!!!! 

EDIT: In the latest 0.4 version you will see the BCT Selection window:
A couple of peeps have reported that the tool won't dump the bct and aren't sure what to do...
Blackthund3r suggestion was to hit the blue arrow and carry on....
If you are using the tool to fix format/partition errors you may run into troubs....
try using the nvFlash method a pictorial for that is here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1773323



To Enter APX Mode MANUALLY - Turn your Tab OFF

Up until 5 mins ago I'd never been able to get the auto mode to work...
but for the sake of some screenies i tried it again.....
and guess what, it worked!!!

There's a bit of a trick - Lets go: 

Click "Enter APX Mode"



you're gonna see the following from the box you clicked on
.........................extracting resources
.........................Starting ADB Server
.........................Enter APX Mode
.........................Wait 5 Seconds.....
.........................Killing ADB Server

If you look closely at the power light - it stays off - 
which means we aren't quite in APX Mode yet...

Now this is where the trick comes in......
where it says "Press to Run Again" - 
thats what we're gonna do - so Press it!!



You'll notice that the LED has come on now - woohoo - 
And the screen is black -
you know what that means????? 
We're in APX Mode!!!! 
You arent gonna see alot on your tab here
apart from "Entering APX Mode" 
But trust me, just wait it out here for a few minutes...
If you are watching your PC Screen you might see
"Entering the bootloader....." straight after this your
PC will begin the flashing process...

But wait...theres more.....

hhhmmm but what if the LED isnt on???what then???
If your LED light is not on then STOP!!!
Don't turn it off and try again - or worse, try something else
Just click "Press to Run Again" and when the LED is on

************************************************** **********

If you are having problems in finishing the flashing process, sometimes it helps by
switching over to nvFlash at this point - this is good for those who can get to APX Mode 
OK but just cant seem to get the rest of the flash to complete

************************************************** **********


Click the Blue Arrow
With any luck you should see the 
"Are you ready to Flash?" window:



Alrighty, we're about to enter "Download Mode" 
this is where all the magic happens and 
your 'bootloader' actually gets 'patched'.

You do get another chance to cancel at the next window 
but you only have a few seconds to do it... 

look for this "entering download mode bootloader........"



....your tab will vibrate and written on the top of the screen:
"Entering APX Mode" woohoo.....

On the PC things start going crazy, 
APXTool Flashing Kernels, Recovery images, System images...
loading this, formatting that... just let it do its thing.....
like this:


and this:



and....after 4-5 mins max....On your PC you will see the 'Done' Window
On your Tab in big white letters is PASS
and in red letters: Reboot the device
So, Press and hold the Pwr Button to Power Down
Now simply 'Power On'



tah dah......you've flashed that bootie and installed CWM!!!!!!
When rebooting yr tab you will see some white writing at the top fo the screen
This tells you what BL version you are running.

You can check this with ARI - Fire it up and check your BL and Recovery Versions.



Wasn't so hard after all, was it!!!! 

************************************************** ******
I hope this walk-through has made things a wee bit clearer for you...
Thinking of doing another for validating your SBK and using nvflash if time and energy permits
If you have any probs just ask away
