Hi iv been testing this for a while and iv gotta say ..... its amazing :-) the vega can do something the xoom cannot .... fastboot boot. Witch for a rom dev saves a lot of time :(

Ok this is relatively safe but is dev only thing so use with a little cation :-D as always dont blame me for a brick :)

You can watch this in action here



[GUIDE]
From recovery
1) extract the .zip from below and allow the fastboot binary to be executes
2) reboot to recovery
3) format boot partition in recovery
4) reboot (now your device will drop to fastboot)
5) it will do this every boot until l boot.img is restored

From NVflash
1) extract the .zip from below and allow the fastboot binary to be executes
2) boot into APX mode
2) format boot partition with nvflash ( ./nvflash --bl bootloader.bin --format_partition 7 -go )
3) (now your device will drop to fastboot)
4) it will do this every boot until l boot.img is restored

[OTHER INFO]
Seeing as the vega reports as a different vendor we have to specify this in the fastboot command :( some examples can be found below

./fastboot -i 0x955 -b 0x10000000 boot zImage ramdisk


./fastboot -i 0x955 -b 0x10000000 boot boot.img


./fastboot -i 0x955 -b 0x10000000 flash boot.img


./fastboot -i 0x955 -b 0x10000000 flash:raw zImage ramdisk

(This one is useful as u dont have to worry about a command line in normal cases)
