New advent vega - unable to flash or install vegacomb 3.2

9 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I recently bought the advent Vega

Have spent the last 7 hours reading various posts, downloading software, watching videos on YouTube and have been unable to make any progress with the installation whatsoever

Never thought of myself as stupid, and unable to follow instructions before, there must be something I’m not doing right?

Am running windows 7 64 bit laptop

On the Vega I have enabled the debugging on the device, have tried, tried and tried some more for 7 hours where following the turning off and on holding the back button procedure

This is as far as I have got, nothing happens on my laptop or the Vega following completion of the turn off and on procedure

I guess I really need an idiots guide or someone I can send my Vega to for it to have vegacomb 3.2 put on it

I naively thought that when I bought the tablet, having done a lot of research beforehand on the tablet, its lousy operating system wouldn’t matter owing to the alleged ease of installing the vegacomb 3.2 OS.

None of the post o videos seem simple and all seem to be aimed at people familiar with changing software and modifying OS

Any help people can give me would be of real help, am at the point of returning the tablet and getting a refund, the weekends away from work are precious; no point wasting the whole day of rest being driven mad by an inability to complete what is described as a simple task i.e. updating this Vega tablet to 3.2

Thank you in advance

I think your problem is that there are so many choices, it becomes confusing. Here is one method of installing Vegacomb 3.2 Build 9n Update 3.

1. Download the modded stock ROM to your PC.

2. Download Vegacomb 3.2 build 9n to your Vega tablet.

3. Download update 3 to your Vega tablet.

4. Make sure your tablet is fully charged. Then connect it to your PC (Laptop) with the supplied USB cable.

5. Follow the 'full software update' instructions from the download section at www.myadventvega.com. You don't actually need to download the latest recovery image, use the modded stock ROM image instead.

6. Fire up your Vega once you've installed the modded stock ROM, set the language, accept the licence, and set the timezone.

7. When the normal home screen appears, press the apps button and start up the recovery app.

8. The tablet will reboot into CWM 'recovery' mode. Be Patient, it make take a minute or so.

9. Using the volume switches, highlight "install zip from sdcard" and press the power button.

10 On the next screen, highlight "choose zip from sdcard", and press the power button.

11 On the next screen, highlight the 'download' folder, and press the power button.

12. On the next screen, highlight 'Vegacomb_HC3.2_Build9n.zip' and press the power button.

13. On the next screen, highlight 'Yes' and press the power button.

When the tablet informs you that it is 'all done', repeat steps 10 to 13, but choose the update3 zip file.

14. press the back button repeatedly until you see a menu begining 'reboot system now', and reboot by pressing the power button.

Note: You will see a very bright screen warning you about being ripped off, followed by the word 'VEGACOMB' exploding, followed by the honeycomb bee. The honeycomb bee will seem to stick around for a long time on first boot.

Note: Some people like to 'wipe stats' between installing the modded stock ROM and installing Vegacomb. Since installing the modded stock ROM wipes everything, I don't see the point.

PS. Sorry this took several attempts to post due to my poor keyboard skills.

I too have just bought a Vega. Does anyone know where else I can download these files from, these links are not working.

Thanks, Chris.

The original links point to a site that has been taken out along with megaupload probably because of the tendency to dual locate between the sites though there's no statement about this and unlike megaupload no fbi warning page, it's just dead.

Leaving aside the whole BACKBUTTON-POWERBUTTON-BACKBUTTON key press sequence... are you sure that you're doing everything else right?

The Vega should be wholly powered down - long press the power button (6 seconds) to guarantee this...

The Vega should be plugged into the mains via the charger...

Take a look at my walk-thru, here http://www.tabletroms.com/forums/vega-rom-development/3544-walkthru-latest-vegacomb.html'>http://www.tabletroms.com/forums/vega-rom-development/3544-walkthru-latest-vegacomb.html

... and my response to a question here http://www.tabletroms.com/forums/vega-rom-development/3857-help-reflashing-moddedstock-v2.html'>http://www.tabletroms.com/forums/vega-rom-development/3857-help-reflashing-moddedstock-v2.html

Assuming you have done all of this, I can only think that MAYBE your problem lies with your use of 64bit Windows; I am sure I have read somewhere that the FLASH DRIVER provided by Advent, causes problems with 64bit Windows.

Don't give up - there are people more qualified than I; post your question over at TabletRoms ( http://www.tabletroms.com/forums/vega-rom-development/ )...

What Dibbles doesn't know about AUDI is probably not worth knowing.

Yes.. I know.. only realised after pressing the submit button!

Scrambled around looking for a delete option... found none, and decided that silence was the better option.

Anyway... somebody might learn something from it... (that's my excuse - and I'm sticking with it)
