"Step 1 Acer Iconia Tab B1-711 3G - Factory / Hard reset / Password Removal. Power off the tablet. Press and hold the Volume Up and the Power button. After 3 seconds release the Power On button but continue holding the Volume Up button." more on the web.
So I'm attempting to access the boot menu, which after some searching I can see is done by pressing vol+ and power button at the same time.
I've tried this many times, however it only takes me to a dark screen with "=> FASTBOOT mode..." displayed in the bottom left corner, the only way to get away from this is using a pin to reset the device.
Any advice on how to get into the boot menu or steps to take are appreciated.
