I've tried the latest rom manager from the market and tried flashing this recovery, but it still doesnt seem to work for me - just get the "android next to box" screen.
When I look here (clockworkmod recovery downloads) I find recovery-clockwork-22.214.171.124-vega.img amongst many others...
Does this mean version 126.96.36.199 is 'officially' supported by Koush and the status on the Opening Post in this topic is outdated?
I went ahead and asked @clockworkmod on twitter about the clockworkmod recovery 188.8.131.52 for the Advent Vega.
Here's my question and the answer:
So it looks like the latest recovery is more or less an official clockworkmod recovery for the Vega!
Is there a specific order to do this or not? i.e. Flash 1.06.5 formware and then clockwork and then r5 MCR+PP??
Currently I've done it as 1.06.5, then r5 MCR+PP, then clockwork.
