Homescreen Customisation is acting up

5 posts in this topic

Hi

I am running VegaICS Alpha 3 on my Advent Vega Tablet

However, it seems impossible to customise my home screen...

When I long press on an empty space, nothing happens - any other launcher I have used on my HTC Desire HD, this brings up an option to add a widget or an app.

Also when I longpress on an app, some open instead of moving - it's very hit and miss. I have tried Nova Launcher and although it doesn't have the same issue with opening apps instead of moving them, I am still unable to add new shortcuts

As I stated in another thread, I used this video to install

But I couldn't get the last bit to work, so now the device has been flashed, my computer cannot see the device, either on the Native Mac OSX (can't see it at all) or the Windows Xp or Windows 7 installations via VM Ware fusion (recognises it as a Vega, but can'a access the SD Card

Can anyone help, it's very frustrating, there is a great support community, but the info is tricky to find sometimes, and the advice conflicting

Thanks

Try Apex launcher from the market, also you are running an old version of VegaICS as Beta1 has been out for about a month now, check out Tabletroms for more info

Thanks for that, have installed APEX and although the way of adding things to the homescreen is different from what I expected, at least it works now.

And thanks for the heads up, think I am going to stick with this version of Vega ICS for a while, just until I get used to my tablet and get a bit more familiar with flashing roms

To test if your touchscreen is playing up in ICS go to settings, developer options and tick "show touches" and "pointer location". you can now see the location of any touches and if there are any dead areas, phantom touches or double touches when you should have a continueus touch.

A very useful tool for the vega owner :rolleyes:

It does sound like your touchscreen is playing up, try this fix

You can also add widgets and apps from the app draw. just sweep to the right until you see the widgets.

Just to add... there is also MultiTouch Visualizer 2 ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.metalev.multitouch.visualizer2 )

GED.
