I can't seem to get ROM manager to work on this. I do have the clockword recovery but I'd like to be able to flash it through ROM manager so I can do backups and what not through the program. Also are there any custom kernels to overclock this a little bit? Also I can't get wireless tether or VPN connections to work on this ROM so any idea's on that and also I'm running out of memory already with not many programs installed. Is there a blank custom ROM with just the google apps that I can download? Also is there a way to get rid of the swype keyboard?

@Paul
Hi mate, I did another cook from the kitchen and the Freerunner App is missing, or at least it's shortcut is, which .apk should I be looking for, do you have one you could post up. I haven't used Freerunner yet but it might come in handy sometime - cheers :(

EDIT: Scrub that ... I should learn to google before I post - sorry, sorted ;)

Paul,

First, dude, you're awesome! I've rooted my N700, used your instructions to backup my device (Clockwork Recovery For MI700/N700/Viewpad 7/..) used the pre-baked ROM to see that I could actually do it. All went without a real hitch (forgot to wipe my phone the first time so I had to rerun the ROM.

The pre-baked ROM ran great but had stuff I did;t want or need. I'm in the states so I have no use for the mapping software in that ROM, and there were a few other things I want to do without. I have already pushed my tablet back to the original state. Now I am looking at using a custom ROM from your kitchen, but I am curious, beyond dumping some items that came with the phone that I really don't want, and the opportunity to get some new graphics and themes, what are the benefits that I am not seeing to a custom ROM?

I've satisfied my curiosity that I can do it (I'm not a complete noob, but I'm not really into hacking for the joy of it. What I really want is advancement. I wont get Flash, which I am actually ok with. But I want more speed, more power. I have SetCPU and it seems to be giving me some extra battery life. And I would live to see what else we can do to this device to make is more useful.

So I am looking for any thoughts on this...what will I gain by buying a new ROM from your kitchen in the long run (and that's not a challenge, just a real desire to see what your thoughts are).

Jack

Yes, looks like it works on viewpad 7. Although browser started crashing after flashing it so I had to roll back to the old ROM (the problem was the device was completely out of space, not the fault of the ROM itself). So before trying this ROM flash Clocwork recovery as per instructions on this forum - just in case.

And what do you mean by "if you can" run Froyo on it? Mine came with Froyo out of the box, in fact, I believe all new viewpads now have Froyo.

Excellent, I got mine in HMV, ex display so paid £144, and hoping this is as easy to install the Custom ROM as your Vega one was.

Cheers and thanks for all your hard work.

Good man! I'm sure you'll persuade more of us to sign up for custom bakes and hence recoup your very reasonable investment B)

I picked up the ViewPad 7 version of this device a few days ago, rooted it with little problem. I've been eyeing this ROM, mostly because of a few small quirks I've been experiencing. Here are my quirks, as well as the system info on my device...

Quirk 1 - The Orientation: Works fine when I use the default launcher (which is perfectly usable). In trying either ADW Ex or LauncherPro though, everything is fine when the device is horizontal (the assumed default position), but turning it 90 degrees puts everything on the screen upside down. Again, no issues like this with the default launcher.

Quirk 2 - Browser Scrolling: Periodically, regardless of which browser I use, the screen (typically in gmail) will not scroll at all, which is problematic. Yes, I know I can use the app version, but I want to have full access to downloads and be able to more easily copy/paste items.

Baseband version: PR3.7_125
Kernal version: Apps_2.6.32.9
Build number: 1008_3_240

Paul, would your ROM resolve these quirks do you think? Or is there something in the buildprop I could modify that would resolve either of this issues?

Much appreciation for your efforts here - I 'upgraded' to AdFree in anticipation of trying your ROM!

let's try this "manual"

1. Download the file "SuperOneClickv" from http://forum.xda-dev...ad.php?t=803682. Extract the zip file out into a folder.
2. Replace the adb.exe from SuperOneClick with the adb.exe from the Mi700 CDROM (this is the virtual drive created when you connect your data cable to windows).
3. Run SuperOneClick > and then click "Root"... it will hang after completing a few tasks. Do not worry. Exit the program.
4. Run the same program again... Click "Root" again and this time, it will finish the process and it would show that the Mi700 is ROOTED.
5. Install the ADB drivers from the CD ROM Drive that is specifically created when you plug the Mi700 to your desktop. Either double click on the drive to enter setup or using Windows Explorer, click on "Setup.exe".
6. Open a command prompt from windows, go to your adb directory.

[For those who have used ADB on other Android devices and have installed AndroidSDK]
Usually, it will be c:/AndroidSDK/Android-Sdk-windows/tools

[For those who are using ADB for the first time]

Open Command Prompt (Start > Run > Type "CMD", and press Enter). Then go to the directory where you extracted the zip file in step 1.

E.g. C:\Users\[your username]\Desktop\SuperOneClickv1.4-ShortFuse

7. Copy the file "su" (there is no file extension) from where you extracted SuperOneClick.zip and put it into your "c:/AndroidSDK/Android-Sdk-windows/tools" folder (if you have AndroidSDK), if not, put it in the same folder as the SuperOneClick extracted file.
8. In your command prompt from step 6, type:

adb push su /system/bin
and the file will be copied to your device.

9. If you had no problems pushing (copying the file) then go straight to step 9. If you get "read-only file system" error. Type the following from the command prompt.

adb shell mount -oremount,rw /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system

10. Important last step... you need to change the permission of the file so that you do not lose the root. Type "Adb shell"
a # prompt will appear. Type the following:

chmod 4755 /system/bin/su

and you are done!

Hi, This is an excellent step by step guide IMHO. Well done ;-).

Noticed however that the Internet icon on the bottom left on the new ROM layout constantly results in the following error....
'The application launcher (process com.android.launcher) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again.

Any idea's whether there's a fix to this please?

Thank you.

Hi Paul,

I'd upgraded to Ad-Free after seeing this post of yours, but have noted there's been no new ROMs as yet. Will you be adding a new one?

Also: do you know of any way of fixing the orientation issue?

Many thanks.

I'm sure you're very busy Paul but it would be nice to know if there's any update on this front, picked up a ViewPad 7 from iBood for £140 :)

Tried the MCR rom out today, runs nice and smooth but getting graphical glitches when using the rear facing camera (front facing works fine).

Anyone else noticed this?
