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!

For newcomers. Screen shot intensive, step by step guides to installing the USB drivers needed to flash stock ROM and install the Modaco ROM on Windows XP, Vista and 7. Done as PDFs rather than a monster post which would probably be unusable.

Please feedback, especially if any steps didn't work, didn't make sense, seemed out of order or had different results to the ones shown in the guides.

Good luck.....


Simonta!

Thank you from all Advent/Android novices. I wish I found this guide when I started over a week ago. A clear, logical, well written guide. Should be included in the box with every Advent Vega sold! Well done.

hi i have followed this right the way through, and its the most useful guide on the forum but now iv got the point where you said that if the android phone icon didnt show up in the device manager that i couldnt load mcr? what do you mean by cannot load it? should i give up hope that the vega is anything more than an expensive lesson to in future go with the bigger brands? iv spent the entire day today trailing through the forums and am about to feed the vega to the dog.is there any other way i can get this icon up in the device manager? any help would be appreciated.
thanks josh

I meant that if you don't get the icon, installing mcr won't work. You only need it for the install.

If the guide hasn't worked, there are only 2 possibilities. Either you haven't followed the guide exactly or, one or more steps did not work as the guide said they would. Which one is true and if the latter, which step(s) failed?

If you do ask for more help, please be precise and provide as much information as possible. For starters, which OS are you using?

Cheers

Well im stuck...... Running windows vista home premium 32 bit and I cant get this to run at all.

Vega running latest stock, I have followed the pdf instructions to the letter but to no avail.


The furthest I have got is in Device Manager I have Android Phone and under that Android ADB Interface with a yellow exclamation mark and Android Composite ADB interface (no exclamation mark).

I run install-windows.bat and just get:

daemon still not running: starting it now on port 5037
daemon started successfully
daemon still not runningerror: cannot connect to daemon



Sorry, I installed stock rom, but I am trying to install MCR again...
I have managed to do this before on my old XP desktop, unfortunately that has now gone to see the big Calculator in the Sky.......

Not like you to get stuck extrememonkey!

Delete the "Android ADB Interface" and also delete the drivers if offered the option. Reboot your PC with the Vega connected. Do you see only "Android Composite ADB Interface"? That's where we need to get to.

Also make sure that you are using the mmc.exe run as adminstrator trick rather than running device manager directly. Alternatively, for the duration of your installation fun, turn off User Account Control in Vista.

UAC turned off, Android phone in device manager, under that only "Android Composite ADB Interface", update drivers with the one that came with MCR, Vega in Debug mode, run install-windows.bat - still getting my original errors, same as before!!!


Am I being completely and utterly stupid here, or is there a problem down the line somewhere????

Vega, MCR and Windows Vista dont seem to be keen on a menage et trois!!!!

I've seen this when I'm devving on Android but not on this forum.

1. Are you using the ADB drivers from the SDK? If so, replace with the ones downloaded with the mcr
2. Disable your firewall (for testing)
3. In task manager, click "Show processes from all users"
4. Confirm that adb.exe is running as System
5. From a command prompt:
adb kill-server
adb kill-server (that's right, twice)
adb start-server
adb devices

What happens?

Thanks Simon, ive tracked down a XP machine so will do what I need to do on that!!!

It really annoys me that I cant do it on my Vista lappy, cant for the life of me figure out why, and I really hate being out smarted and defeated by a bloody computer!!!! Im no dev or computer whizz, but can usually do anything that is thrown at me after a little research and trial and error, but this has truelly gotten the better of me for some reason!!!

hello im this weeks saturday noob :)

i have the exact same problem as extrememonkey

devmgmt.msc > right click run as admin (not mmc.exe ?)

17. Wait for the drivers to install. Your device manager should now show this. If you don’t see “Android Composite ADB Interface” under “Android Phone”, you will not be able to install mcr.

i get to step 17 and it all shows up BUT exclamation mark on android composite adb interface and running install-windows.bat results in it just hanging

im on win7 x64

It looks like a problem with 64 bit. I think that the drivers are not installing correctly. Please could you right click the device then properties->details and let me know hardware ids, inf section and matching device ids?

Thanks
