When Paul ships his packs, he includes adb.exe but renames it to adb-windows as the pack includes adb for Mac and Linux - so just run adb-windows instead of adb. It will make things much easier if you have adb-windows on the path. If you know how to do this, great. If not, copy adb-windows.exe to c:\windows. You may as well rename it to adb.exe as well. Easier to remember and type!

Cheers


Ahh, that worked. I salute you sir.

Oops-a-daisy, when I installed the apk file and opened it, it said rebooting to recovery and went off with a blank screen and the backlight on.

I held the power button til it went off and started it up again....same blank screen with backlight.

Done this a few times now and it's not booting up, what do I do? :P

No button combination boots into recovery. You need an app to boot into recovery. The apk is included in the ZIP file from 1st post. Just install it as usual on the tablet. When you start it, the tab will boot into recovery.

Thanks I got it. Could you do the same with the Recovery image and flash utility? Assuming that it's not a huge file

If you're donwloading on the Vega, do it on your PC instead.

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

Was this from my 2 dropbox links above, or from the Modaco site?

Hi, I downloaded them from the dropbox. When opened ...

! C:\modaco\r4-vega-recovery.zip: Unexpected end of archive
! C:\modaco\r4-vega-recovery.zip: The archive is either in unknown format or damaged

I tried a few time to download, same error.

The power button selects the option.

I have pushed what is needed using the first two code commands, on a cleanly installed 1.08 R8.

However...

adb.exe shell chmod 4755 /data/local/flash_image

This step opens Android Debug Bridge on mine. It doesn't seem to do any more than that.

When I then enter:

adb.exe shell /data/local/flash_image recovery /data/local/recovery.img

I get a permission denied error. Any ideas? I am in an Administrator command prompt.

Edit: I must have missed something in step 3. When I started again and copied and pasted each step into my CP, it didn't open the Debug Bridge.

Now CWModded :(

clockwordmod is acting weird, when I try to select: apply update, and press the power button to enter it returns to the main menu:| there's no way for me to select any option!

I finally got the ClockworkMod recovery installed but couldn't get the adb method to work. So, I thought I'd share the details of my solution with anyone else with the same problem.

When I run the command "adb devices" I get the "error: device not found" message. Despite reinstallation of USB drivers and following the various suggestions in other posts, it still doesn't show my Vega. I originally had a similar problem with my Milestone, but an upgrade to the Android SDK fixed that.

Anyway, I ended up using a combination of the Root Explorer and Better Terminal apps on my Vega to perform the installation. I used Root Explorer to copy recovery.img and flash_image from the download location to /data/local/. The iFileManager on the Vega can't see the files in this directory, but Root Explorer can.

I then found that although Root Explorer can set Read/Write/Execute permissions, e.g. 755, it doesn't seem to be able to set the UID. So, I used Better Terminal to “cd” to the directory and, following an “su” command and agreeing to the pop-up regarding superuser privilege, did the chmod 4755. As I was already in the directory, the final command before reboot was just

./flash_image recovery ./recovery.img

I could have done all the above with just Better Terminal but there's less typing involved by copying with Root Explorer. I originally tried to use the free Terminal Emulator for the command line stuff, but it opens full screen on the Vega so you don't have the soft menu key normally available in the notification bar and there's no hard menu key (at least not on mine!). Whereas in Better Terminal the notification bar is still shown and the soft keyboard appears when you tap on the screen anyway.

[EDIT] I'd just bought my Vega when I wrote the above. I've now discovered that a long press on the back key acts as a menu key.
