The stock launcher from Froyo doesn't like the N700... I recommend installing LauncherPro or ADW from the Market and using that (I'm using LauncherPro here and it's working great).

Yes..I've done files and folder compare but nothing really obvious changed..I assume maybe kernel version give the problem..

and for wifi obviously n700 are using different driver(maybe as ar6000_tcmd.ko is not avail in our mi700)..

So will this allow apps to sd? I'm thinking it doesn't, so is there anyway we can get this so we can install unlimited apps?

I can't seem to get ROM manager to work on this. I do have the clockword recovery but I'd like to be able to flash it through ROM manager so I can do backups and what not through the program. Also are there any custom kernels to overclock this a little bit? Also I can't get wireless tether or VPN connections to work on this ROM so any idea's on that and also I'm running out of memory already with not many programs installed. Is there a blank custom ROM with just the google apps that I can download? Also is there a way to get rid of the swype keyboard?

@Paul

Hi mate, I did another cook from the kitchen and the Freerunner App is missing, or at least it's shortcut is, which .apk should I be looking for, do you have one you could post up. I haven't used Freerunner yet but it might come in handy sometime - cheers :(

EDIT: Scrub that ... I should learn to google before I post - sorry, sorted ;)

Paul,

First, dude, you're awesome! I've rooted my N700, used your instructions to backup my device (Clockwork Recovery For MI700/N700/Viewpad 7/..) used the pre-baked ROM to see that I could actually do it. All went without a real hitch (forgot to wipe my phone the first time so I had to rerun the ROM.

The pre-baked ROM ran great but had stuff I did;t want or need. I'm in the states so I have no use for the mapping software in that ROM, and there were a few other things I want to do without. I have already pushed my tablet back to the original state. Now I am looking at using a custom ROM from your kitchen, but I am curious, beyond dumping some items that came with the phone that I really don't want, and the opportunity to get some new graphics and themes, what are the benefits that I am not seeing to a custom ROM?

I've satisfied my curiosity that I can do it (I'm not a complete noob, but I'm not really into hacking for the joy of it. What I really want is advancement. I wont get Flash, which I am actually ok with. But I want more speed, more power. I have SetCPU and it seems to be giving me some extra battery life. And I would live to see what else we can do to this device to make is more useful.

So I am looking for any thoughts on this...what will I gain by buying a new ROM from your kitchen in the long run (and that's not a challenge, just a real desire to see what your thoughts are).

Jack

Yes, looks like it works on viewpad 7. Although browser started crashing after flashing it so I had to roll back to the old ROM (the problem was the device was completely out of space, not the fault of the ROM itself). So before trying this ROM flash Clocwork recovery as per instructions on this forum - just in case.

And what do you mean by "if you can" run Froyo on it? Mine came with Froyo out of the box, in fact, I believe all new viewpads now have Froyo.

Excellent, I got mine in HMV, ex display so paid £144, and hoping this is as easy to install the Custom ROM as your Vega one was.

Cheers and thanks for all your hard work.
