Hi Paul - should I completely remove Xposed and its modules first? Or wipe its data? Should it be added to the exclude folder? I've used the procedure above, and Xposed is surviving reboots but not surviving switches. I'm only activating it in Sense.
Synced Google calendar data seems to disappear with each switch, and has to be synced each time in both instances. I have multiple Google accounts syncing, and the calendar data comes from one account.
I think the point is that Honeycomb is a strand of Android designed specifically for tablets; phones would be expected to follow the alternative strand (Gingerbread), with specs more suitable for a small screen.
From a commercial perspective, these specs make perfect sense, and will appeal to manufacturers; none of the current crop of devices support this resolution, so Samsung, Viewsonic, etc. can get busy selling new tablets to people who've invested in premature technology, rather than having to release updates to 'old' technology, which generates no new revenue for them.
Indeed - got there in the end. My own finding was that the generally given instruction to envoke recovery mode by holding back / power + back / back for two seconds each was inaccurate, and in fact the timing is around a second for each action.
It's clear that cwm isn't exactly dangerous, but as it can't be invoked without an operational rom installed, its value is limited. As it also appears to cause an instability, its value is even further degraded. Certainly, I'd be disappointed if Paul chose to release future ROMs in a format that required cwm, at least in its current form.
Okay, based on what has been said so far, as I understand it, the dangerous aspect is specifically around losing data, the irony being that CWM offers the best solution for restoring in these circumstances. Presumably, however, there is a genuine and real of bricking the Vega in a specific set of circumstances: if the BSOD happens while rebooting the Vega to USB-Host mode, presumably you won't be possible to communicate with the Vega in order to re-install the system image.
For what it's worth, with a bit of experimentation I've now had my first BSOD after maybe 100 reboots since installing CWM. A pain, particularly as I don't have easy access to a Windows PC, but definitely not the end of the world.
