Do an 'erase all content and settings' from Settings -> Software Tool, and once it reboots, install the ROM.

P

Argh! So this replaces user data etc? ie All apps and settings will have to be reinstalled? Or Will a backup and reinstall after R7 goes on save me the hassle?

not bothered either way, as I would rather spend extra time making sure it works perfectly - but would love to avoid the hassle of reinstalling apps 1 by 1 if poss!

Thanks.

Paul, after 30 minutes of use, here are my findings:

Performance: great!
Rendering Glitches: 99.8% gone!
Calendar: fixed! ;)


r7 should keep me busy until Honeycomb for Vega is released ;)

No? It doesn't... that was in response to ravemaster8210 asking me how to do a 'clean install'!

Hi Paul, sorry for the noob question but what advantages are there over the stock 1.08 that came with my Vega? I have installed Flash and maps and other apps for the various apks floating around. Is your ROM faster? Thanks!

Different kernel and updated graphics drivers, amongst other things.

Hi Folks

Quick question for dunce here I have only done up to R3 at the moment and had used the prebake want now to download R7 using the kitchen... don't have clockwork recovery installed therefore do i need a signed zip file when updating through the command line as I did with R3? sorry if I am a bit dense. Also does this mean I do not have to install 1.08 first can I go straight ahead with the R7 install. have original 1.04. thanks for your patience ;)

This ROM has transformed this device immeasurably! Thank you!

I can't believe anyone would bitch and moan about not getting "future updates" when you do so much for free, gratis, and for no personal benefit in the first place! If you can't afford the full cost of the Ad-free membership or you don't think it's worthwhile (how could you think that!) at least please consider donating to Paul's Leukaemia Research charity project. Even if it's just £1. With the number of visitors this site attracts that £10k target should have already been met.

Anyone who's used the original performance pack will tell you there's more to it than Quadrant scores! ;)

I got 2500 on Quadrant, so it seems somewhat variable.

You know what would have been cool? A custom MCR bootscreen instead of the stock advent one. ;) other than that tip top.. runs quick, no graphical glitches, transformed the machine. Muchos gracias!

Thanks for your hard work Paul and those guys that helped test the install.

Went flawlessly for me.

XP windows install.

It does seem a little perkier as well.

Calendar fix is excellent - pity there wasn't a decent Agenda Widget with the same look & feel ;) (using Agenda Widget at the min)

Paul, many thanks for your efforts with this.
I have learned so much from this forum, last week I didn't even know what CWM was and now I have used it to install this ROM.
Only getting 2157 on Quadrant so I may revert to a clean install to see if it improves it, as I installed over the top of 1.6.05

Really enjoying my Vega now so thanks to all the other people who have written instructions on here to help me learn how to do things.
