TnT Lite for the Viewsonic G tablet runs well on the tablet, I love the menu bar at the top, it looks amazing... BUT.. WIFI doesn't work.

I'll get onto getting WiFi working with the build and let you guys know if I get anywhere. Pulling ar6000.ko or bcm4329.ko (if available) from a Vega build and putting that in /system/lib/modules/ of the TnT Lite build should hopefully get us somewhere.

WARNING: Open the update.zip and replace boot.img with a Vega boot.img, USB Slave or USB Host, failure to do so will result in a Vega which fails to boot and fails to enter recovery and you'll have to reflash to stock using NVFLash.

Percy this seems like a good idea so perhaps you should PM Paul to ask if he thinks it's worth making this topic a sticky and agree how it will be maintained thereafter. :)

Nice one Mark (Percy25).

I wondered what you'd been up to - this is really useful and I look forward to updates as we move forward.

It'd be great if some Custom ROMs appeared here too.

When you run gscript for the first time you should get a Super User pop up warning - you are giving it super user rights? (You need to!).

I suggest to go to settings > applications > manage > select gscript and clear data and uninstall. The next time you install and run, the above message should appear.

Hope this helps.

Hi guys

I've been playing around with the TnT and VegaN-Tab ROMs to figure out new patches for the mcr packs.

Been a silly boy! Did a full flash and thought I'd replaced boot.img with an original but found out the hard way that I hadn't and now can't back into recovery - because of the incorrect boot.img.

I've read about using NVFlash to get back to stock but I can't find any docs for this.

Anyone know how to do it?

Cheers

Did you manage to reslove this? The stock 1.06.05 Rom flash update should work.

Hello all,

i have the similar Device POV Mobii Tegra 10,2". Does anybody managed to run the original G-Tablet Stock Rom 3389 on the Vega or Mobii? I replaced the boot.img with the Original one from POV and the Update went without problems. But on starting i only get FC for the TapNTap Welcome Setup... Maybe it is related to the missing internal SD Card.

Maybe one here have an idea for me, i really would like to try TapNTap :-)

Regards

Wiss911
