24/Jan 2.5.1.8: ClockworkMod for the Advent Vega

232 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

a very simple method to get clockworkmod on your vega, mobii or viewpad 10s is to extract an original rom like 1.09 extract it and replace the recovery.img with the clockworkmod version. double click lvds.bat and let nvflash do the work for you

This seems logical. Once ive replaced the recovery image (clockwork) can you explain the procedure from there. do i run it whilst connected to pc etc etc. Thankyou :D

after tablet had booted vega rom download vega recovery from market (or modaco) and place the custom vega rom on your sdcard in zip format

execute vega recovery and if everything went wel clockworkmod is loaded.

clear al cache, reset default, and wipe dalvik then choose zip from sdcard and execute. wait few minutes and reboot and again if al went wel you have now a custom rom, and be as happy as me

if you have any questions you now where to find me B)

I cant go any further, ive tried everything but am unable to install the usb driver (on win 7 x64) Ive read through all forums, and cannot locate the vega in device manager at all. without this usb driver i cant go foward. Edit ive managed to get the usb drivers install for the vega, but i go into recovery mode, and vega is connected to pc, run the softwareImage_v1.09_Vega_Final (with clockwork image in) and application just shuts down ????? ie vega stays in recovery mode, and does not update

are you shure you are in recovery mode? somethimes it helps to press back button about 4seconds instead of 2 and then press power for 3 seconds and release back after 3 and then release power after 3 seconds. Also do you use an original vega rom extract it replace it with the right recovery.img and started lvds.bat ? Also i had problems with win7 64 bit and used a laptop with 32bit win7

If you still have problems i can give you an url of a custom original Rom from my site (i have my website hosted @home so not publishing the url here :D

Good luck

Nvflash started

UnKnown device found

Press enter to continue:

Im guessing the device unknown is the issue here.

In device manager the vega is liisted as Nvidia composite device. If this is the problem, its says the best driver is already installed.....

did you use the original drivers from the vega? my best bet is to do a system restore (before the nvidia driver install) and try the original drivers your device has to show up as a pbx device

Shows up as a pbx! Now that would be interesting...:D

No need for system restore or anything so drastic. Simply replace the drivers. However, as I have said soooo mannnnyyyy times, do NOT try update drivers. it will usually fail.

In order to flash the Advent ROM, you MUST be in recovery mode and you MUST have the Nvidia Recovery device driver loaded. Nothing else will work.

Not sure if it happens when you copied the output, but there seems to miss some / in your command.

It should be:

adb push recovery.img /data/local/ not adb-windows push recovery.img datalocal

Have you tried restarting your machine and the Vega? Also have you added the details to Path in System Properties/Environmental Variables C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\tools;C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools (bold depends on where you've installed the sdk tools to).

Thanks I was using the adb files from the modaco download so I altered the commands to match, I tried the Google SDK with no luck (ADB could not fine the device but the ADB server started fine). In the end usbdview delete, disconnecting the PC from the network so Win7 did not auto install dirvers, and Vegatools let me get Clockwork working, 4mins later on CyanogenMod 7!!

Hello, I have installed MCR r8, on top of the latest advent ron. Everything is running fine. I bought Tom manager from the market, flashed the latest cwm, went to reboot in to recovery, but it sticks at the android and box logo.

Any ideas

thank you, reverted to stock rom, used vega tools, and am now in recovery mode, jackpot. I have to admit though, I am considering returning the Vega, cant quite get used to the viewing angles, and the strange way the colours almost bleed on the screen.

Hi all,

Very new to Andriod and have been trying to install Clockworkmod using Vega Tools 3. The install went well but when I boot into Clockworkmod and try to do a Nandroid backup I get the following message:-

ClockworkMod Recovery v2.5.1.8

E:Can't mont /dev/block/mmcblk3p1 (or /dev/block/mmcblk0)

(No such file or directory)

Can't mount /sdcard

I have tried a couple of hard boots (press & hold power button until Vega reboots).

I have a 16GB class 10 SD card but this has not given me any other issues.

I am running r8 Modaco ROM.

I have read all the posts on this thread and this seems to be unique problem - any help would be greatly appreciated.

STOP PRESS

I have fixed the problem. I had to backup my SD card onto my computer, reformat on the Vega, copy the data back and hey presto Nandroid backup works :)
