24/Jan 2.5.1.8: ClockworkMod for the Advent Vega

232 posts in this topic

Tried to flash r2, but I'm getting this:

[email protected]:~/Temp/Downloads/recovery-r2$ adb shell /data/local/flash_image recovery /data/local/recovery.img

header is the same, not flashing recovery

Tried just installing the updated APK, but rebooting still just reloads Android OS. Tried with USB connected and disconnected just in case that was affecting it.

VERY strange indeed!

I'll revert to stock again tomorrow and try again, but I already did that once! Confused!

Paul,

Okay. I'll leave it for now. I don't really want to revert my Vega back to stock 1.04 as I need it for the work commute tomorrow and can't be bothered to reinstall all the apps.

I'll keep an eye on this thread for any updates.

Have a good evening.

Do I detect a hint of sarcasm there? Full MCR coming soon? or are you just teasing us! Hehe!

flashed 1.04 again and ran the recovery flashing procedure

this time it worked and booted to ClockworkMod :P

i think it must be a problem if we already flashed the earlier r1 image

perhaps it might save wiping again if we just reflashed the stock recovery image before r2 ?

Cool. Thanks for working that out. As I said, I'll have to wait until tomorrow as I'm lazy and can't be bothered to reinstall all my apps right now!

Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet! :D

Koush has forked my device profile into the cyanogenmod repository, so the recovery image should be available in ROM Manager shortly! :P

you could always try pushing/flashing the stock recovery.img file from inside the 1.04 archive :P

Not sure why that would be the case! :P

did anything change in the recovery.img from r1 to r2?

No, I just fixed up the file structure in the archive (and flash_image was missing in r1 I think?)

Strange. "flash_image" was included in r1, but just in a different folder than "recovery.img".

So, is it worth me wiping back to stock 1.04, or could it be something else that is causing my issues.

When I load the "Recovery" app, I get the "please wait" message and then my Vega reboots. I get the momentary appearance of "ANDROID" in a fixed-width terminal font, then the Advent logo appears, then Android OS loads.

Nothing I'm missing here?

Koush is adding the recovery to ROM Manager now, so might be worth holding fire!

Okay. I'll wait then! Cheers for the quick responses tonight (and for sorting Clockwork out for us)

i think it's something in the r3 add-on now...

i can flash/boot to clockworkmod without the r3 add-on pack

my last screenshot was on plain 1.04 with clockwork recovery flashed. but after flashing the add-on pack i got a blank screen and the device wouldn't boot

so i booted to the nvflash mode and flashed 1.04 again, then ran the r3 addon (with skype/wallpaper/performance pack) and then tried flashing recovery again, but now it doesn't boot into clockworkmod

I just installed ROM Manager (v2.5.0.7) and under the "Flash ClockworkMod Recovery", it lists one device "Advent Vega" but the install fails. Does the ROM Manager app pull this "Advent Vega" text from the device or is it a sign that Koush is updating ROM Manager now?

The problem was indeed an issue with the performance pack.

Re-download and re-apply the performance pack and you should be set! :P

I'm talking to Koush now and he's updating!

He certainly is. The option now works and installed ClockworkMod, but I still can't boot into it. It just loads Android OS.

I think I'll probably have to wipe at some point!

No, read the post above - just reinstall the PP and you should be golden!
