I have attached a zip the following thread, it will flash Pauls recovery and a more standard bootloader to the Vega so you can boot recovery from the more standard method of Power+Volume Up.

This was the original idea of Bumble-Bee,

You need to be in bootloader/brick recovery mode to flash this, please refer to other threads how to do this if you don't already know,

Enjoy

I might as well be first, how is this mod applied?

Is it done via recovery option to install .zip file from sdcard?

Thanks, So does this mean the Clockwork Recovery can be obtained by Power and Volume up? So DO I need the clockwork recovery on to flash it


Thanks

Thanks Adam this should be a great help :D. I'm curious if this is the bootloader from another device or did you rebuild it from source?

Perhaps I'm missing something, but how is this different from what we have in the "29/Nov 2.5.1.3: ClockworkMod for the Advent Vega" topic?

The recovery.img file is the same. The only different thing is the flashing method:

[codebox]nvflash --bl bootloader.bin --download 6 recovery.img
@set /p batuserinput=Press enter to continue:[/codebox]

This just overwrites the recovery partition, not the bootloader. Incidentally, I'm unable to enter recovery mode by pressing POWER+VOLUMEUP. I've even tried with POWER+VOLUMEDOWN and the "Boot into recovery" option from ROM Manager without success.

Maybe best to wait for Adam but I suspect if you followed instructions in this thread:

http://android.modac...-rom-installer/

Using Adams recovery and bootloader you may get the desired result. However, you'll lose your data if you don't substitute images from you're own nandroid backup.

Don't do this if you don't understand it. I probably wont have time to play myself untilled the weekend

Decent of you to do this for us Adam, I understand you are selling your Vega as you dont like the screen.

Wasnt too impressed with the screen when I got mine but really doesnt bother me at all now, think I was being a bit picky really. Would be nice to have a better quality screen but for the price I still think its a steal.

unfortunately I haven't been able to get this to work, tried flashing the files a number of times, and also lots and lots of combinations of power +vol up and unable to get it to boot to recovery, just loads up as normal. Also had my first ever black screen where it wouldn't boot. Also tried dropping the the bootloader.bin and recovery.img into the original 1.06.5 and flashing that, but the unit wouldn't even power on. I'll see how the thread develops and go back to the old method for now.

Think we need more info from Adam then. The nvflash command pasted above would not flash the bootloader. If you drop the bootloader into the Vega zip and modify the flash.cfg and drop in your the recovery image that should flash both. Having said that i tried something similar with the gtab bootloader and that didn't work either so we need to know where the bootloader came from and exactly how Adam used it I think

So does this mean it has installed the Clockwork mod now? Do I need to be worried about turning my device off for fear of the BSOD?

No :D

In the unlikely event it occurs, you could just reboot back into recovery, and if that doesn't work
boot into NVFlash
Reflash this
then reboot back into recovery

And in the highly unlikely event that doesn't work, you just reflash back to stock :P

Edit:
To avoid confusing, to your first question: yes, clockwork recovery is now flashed B)

Edit2:
That is when it's working. I'd advise not to flash this until it's fixed and confirmed to be working.

This simply isn't working at all. I have tried various methods to flash it, including modifying the original softwareImage_v1.06_05_Vega_Final.exe file's bootloader.bin with Adam's but no matter what I tried, my Vega just wouldn't boot, not even to a BSOD, with BSOD's the backlight comes on with a blank screen at least!.
