Hi Guys,

Very new to the Verga and am reasonably good with tech. Paid my dues for all your hard work B) . Just need to know how to get the "Click to bake"? The big picture at the bottom to appear? All I get is something about premium users?

OK as if by magic it appeared, so have baked and saved to the Vega SD card - now stuck using the instructions below. How do I restart the device in recovery mode?? Then what about perform a nandroid backup from the menu, I assume after the restart from recovery I will see that in a menu?

Sorry for the newbie questions - I did do a search honest guv :unsure:

To install this ROM using ClockworkMod Recovery:

  • Download the zip file of your choice from the links below (or the online kitchen) and copy to your SD card
  • Restart your device in recovery mode
  • PERFORM A NANDROID BACKUP FROM THE MENU
  • Select the option to apply an update zip, and select the zip file you copied to your memory card

Cheers,
Steve.


Search for "clockworkmod easy installer". Nandroid backup simply means a complete backup of the ROM NAND (the flash memory where it's stored). In clockworkmod on the main menu - Backup/Restore.

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!

I have not used my Vega for a long time.
I see there are new roms from advent vega.
But I assume,that when I install them, the modaco rom is gone.
Is it handy to install first the latest rom from advent and then re-install with the modaco rom, or is everything reverted bij de modaco-rom ?
I have the R8 on the system all the time.
I have the clockworkmod and things like that and nand backup, so Am I still up to date ?

Hello

First off, thank you for the effort you've put into this ROM and the continued support on here - to all of you!

OK, I am running Vista and trying to upgrade using the install-windows.bat from the command line. It returns the following error:
'adb-windows.exe' is not recognised as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

I have loaded the usbdrivers from the extracted files. Even tried to uninstall and reinstall - but still getting this error. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

"adb-windows.exe" should be in the same folder as "install-windows.bat".

If it isn't, I've attached a zip of it anyway.

Heya! I was having a poke around in the zip in an effort to improve my understanding of how ROMs are distributed (ultimately I want to drop my own custom kernel onto my vega), and upon examining the boot.img, I can't find any kernel command-line... how does that work? Doesn't the kernel need at least mtdparts= to find the partitions? Also everything I've read suggests that usbcore.old_scheme_first=1 is required with the up to date kernels.

I figure there's a few possibilites:
1) The commandline and relevant information is actually compiled into this kernel (I still couldn't find any mention of mtd via strings(1) though)
2) This kernel doesn't need a commandline
3) The boot image tools I'm using look in the wrong place for the commandline (they pick the commandline out with "od -A n --strings -j 64 -N 512 boot.img")

Any hints?

Just a thanks from me for supplying the ROM. The standard one wouldn't work with the Android Kindle app, this version does and is faster. Great stuff.

A quick note though. I had trouble getting the install to run from Ubuntu, until I thought to run the install script using 'sudo'. Maybe a line in the instructions to let users know to run the scripts as root?

Also I was going to contribute as a thanks, but I'm not really interested in a recurring subscription. Is there a 'donate' button anywhere?

I can't get Wi-Fi working after installing the r8 MoDaCo custom rom, I have tried erasing all my settings then installing but still no Wi-Fi. It just keeps coming back with error when I try to select it. I used the ClockworkMod recovery method from my SD card to install it, as it would not find the device from my PC.
