Strangely, 'reboot recovery' and 'adb reboot recovery' don't actually get you to recovery.



Time for a Clockwork Recovery mod ? B)

Paul,

In your considered opinion, worth every penny of the £250 or not?

How easy would it be for a newbie to Android to buy and route and then get all this working on the Vega?

Regards

Dave

Alrighty, flashed my device to 1.0.3 now so i'm working with the latest version.

Now have Live Wallpapers showing properly in the market (they weren't before).

Getting there!

I think it's pretty good for the price personally!

I'll make sure the process is newbie friendly... B)

Legendary! Truly amazing!

Cheers Paul for all your hard work. I will definitely renewing my MoDaCo subscription when it expires. I've sourced all my information and roms from MoDaco for all three of my devices (Blade, Pulse and Vega).

Thank you!

Nice idea, BUT... we don't have a way to boot into recovery yet!

I haven't found the key combination...

So the sequence from the full_system_flash_instructions.pdf :

Place the Advent Vega into recovery mode by:
o Turn the Vega off by holding down the POWER button for 6 seconds
o Once off, hold the BACK button down for 2 seconds
o Then, whilst keeping the BACK button held, press and hold the POWER button for 2
seconds
o Then release just the POWER button but keep holding the BACK button for a further
2 seconds
o Release the BACK button

does not work then (my Vega has not arrived yet, so I can't try)?

It does, but that's not recovery in the conventional sense (that we can use).
