Hello, I have installed MCR r8, on top of the latest advent ron. Everything is running fine. I bought Tom manager from the market, flashed the latest cwm, went to reboot in to recovery, but it sticks at the android and box logo.
Any ideas


Clockwork recovery CANNOT be installed on the Vega with Rom Manager I USED Vega tools

thank you, reverted to stock rom, used vega tools, and am now in recovery mode, jackpot. I have to admit though, I am considering returning the Vega, cant quite get used to the viewing angles, and the strange way the colours almost bleed on the screen.

Hi all,

Very new to Andriod and have been trying to install Clockworkmod using Vega Tools 3. The install went well but when I boot into Clockworkmod and try to do a Nandroid backup I get the following message:-

ClockworkMod Recovery v2.5.1.8
E:Can't mont /dev/block/mmcblk3p1 (or /dev/block/mmcblk0)
(No such file or directory)
Can't mount /sdcard

I have tried a couple of hard boots (press & hold power button until Vega reboots).

I have a 16GB class 10 SD card but this has not given me any other issues.

I am running r8 Modaco ROM.

I have read all the posts on this thread and this seems to be unique problem - any help would be greatly appreciated.

STOP PRESS

I have fixed the problem. I had to backup my SD card onto my computer, reformat on the Vega, copy the data back and hey presto Nandroid backup works :)

Try this one: [mod] Clockwork recovery 3.0.2.4 [easy install].

Works very well on my tablet.

Quick note:

The APK installation can be also done with:

$ adb install com.modaco.vegarecoveryboot.apk

Hi,

got this:

Creating Symlinks...
Setting permissions...
Flashing boot image...
flashing boot from /data/mcr/boot.img
mtd: not writing bad block at 0x003e0000
mtd: not writing bad block at 0x00400000
Done, rebooting...

But it seems to be working. Any idea what was wrong?

1) Clean Vega 1.09 stock ROM
2) Botted into it, USB DEBUGGING ON
3) Downloaded r8, unpacked, connected, ./install-linux.sh

Hi All,

I do not know if it works on all ROM's but with the latest ROM Manager 4.2.0.1 or higher you can flash the CWM, flash ROMS and make backups. At least it does on the CM7 nightlies.

Just install the ROM Manager from the market and flash the recovery...

Can you get into recovery from a cold / dead Vega?

I have recovery back ups using ROM Manager 3.0.2.7 but cannot get the Vega to boot into recovery. The only way I can get into recovery is from the the Recovery app but this is not a lot of cop if you accidently delete a system file and your Vega dies.

Sigh.

There are 2 recoveries. One is clockworkmod or the built in Vega "software tool". This can only be reached via an app.

The second is built into the Vega firrmware and is not reachable via flashing so is always available. You can only get to this via the instructions provided with the Advent ROM update, the two second button press thing.

The Vega is not brickable and if you can't get into stock recovery, you just need to try some more and vary the timings a little. If you see anything on the Vega screen, even the backlight, you are not in recovery.

If I've helped you, you want to say "thanks" and you do not use Dropbox (it's enormously useful, especially with mobile devices), please consider signing up for it using my reference. You'll get 2GB of disk space for files available anywhere, any time on any device. They give us both an extra 250MB if you do sign up!

Sign up for Dropbox

Apple? I'd rather eat my own kidneys!

Anybody knows if the source for the "Reboot utility APK" is public?
I searched the github, but could not find it.

To be clear, I am not searching for the source of the ClockworkMod, but for the small utility that boots into the CWM recovery.

How do you install this????

To install the recovery image and flash utility, extract the first zip file to a directory, then enter the following (this assumes you have 'adb' on your machine)

need a little more then that.
