NTFS, CIFS, and some other kernel tweaks
New kernel based in Buzz
Patched against last malware (search xda for info)
CWM recovery added directly in the installation, and app to access it too.
Full Market working
Automount of FAT and NTFS devices
CIFS/NFS support (download cifs manager or Mount Manager from market)
VPN support (tun.ko module in /system/lib/module)
Sqlite3 exec for modify app databases
gps.conf updated for better fixing
apns-conf.xml updated for 3G dongles
Reboot option added to shutdown menu
Fix BSOD when reboot, no more black screens...

Ads blocked using host file. (If you have any problem with this go to /system/etc/hosts and delete any problematic line).
Performance fix, now in smartbech 2011 we get +3000/+2000 points !!!
Screen calibration app added.
Added a script to know if we are in host or slave mode, and GscriptLite that is needed.
Fixed problem with sd card and usb pens in host mode.
Some apps moved to /data to free space in /system
Updated Gallery3d
Added VTL.launcher
Added Wfi Ad-Hoc support, so now can connect to ad-hoc networks.
Added Notion Ink Keyboard. (not tested)


BEFORE MAKE ANYTHING, PLEASE READ THIS FULL POST AND DO A NANDROID BACKUP (WITH CWM). I WILL NOT TAKE ANY RESPONSABILITY IN ANY WAY IF YOU BRICK, EAT, OR SIT YOUR TABLET

NOTES
For enter usb host mode:
Press power button, once display get power (you will see the diference), press back button and hold until finish booting.

For know usb mode:
In Gscript Lite, we only need to create a new script and use "cat /data/var/mode" without quotes and with "Needs SU?" marked. It will return in what mode are we, slave or host.

For 3g Dongle:
Start in host mode (back button pressed until vega boots) with 3g dongle inserted.
Once started, extract and put back 3G dongle. If you have PIN it will ask for it.
Test dongle (mine green is working, light blue is detected, but not connected, dark blue is connected). If it stalls in light blue, you have a problem with apns, edit /system/etc/apns-conf.xml or pm me.

For Launcher:
In first boot you can chose default android launcher or default Gojimis's VTL.launcher. Set as default the one you like, or install another one.

For Links2SD:
In Links2SD you get an error first time you start it... reboot tablet and works ok.

- Didn't find any of my wallpapers on the SD Card, had to load "Dev Tools" and restart the media scanner and once completed everything was shown


SEMI-UPDATE (DO A BACKUP):
For the people with game problems, try this: http://vegantab.goji...ove.Gsensor.zip (Yes i know it says that is for the opossite thing... try it)
I test it with Raginf Thuder and works, but sometimes it goes crazy.

AS ALWAYS DO A NANDROID BACKUP BEFORE DO ANYTHING WITH YOUR TABLET.

Installation:
Using CWM (RECOMENDED).
Do a Full Wipe before flashing the rom.
Copy CorvusVegaRom.zip to sdcard and update like any other update.
Dont do a wipe after or the apps included in this rom in /data will be deleted.

Not using CWM. (NOT RECOMENDED)
If you ave CWM, use the other way, if not, use this.
Unzip the file and use install-x where x is your operating system. If windows doesnt recognize the tablet use the usb drivers that are into the zip. This is the way that Modaco ROM is installed so if you have problem, please go to its post to see how to resolve.
Once booted, go to Recovery Boot and do a full wipe. Once done, install the apps that are included in the second zip (data_apps.zip)

Update: Seems to have a BSOD with reboot... fixing it. Link will be up once fixed

Hi all

Here comes a new rom for AdventVega and clones

AS ALWAYS DO A NANDROID BACKUP BEFORE DO ANYTHING WITH YOUR TABLET.

Features:
ROM Based in Vegan-Tab done by Gojimi for Viewsonic Gpad
New kernel based in Buzz but with some little changes (it remains all his kernel features, see Buzz Kernel post to check)
Patched against last malware (search xda for info)
CWM recovery added directly in the installation, and app to access it too.
Market working (like Xoom)
Automount of FAT and NTFS devices
CIFS/NFS support (download cifs manager or Mount Manager from market)
VPN support (tun.ko module in /system/lib/module)
Sqlite3 exec for modify app databases
gps.conf updated for better fixing
apns-conf.xml updated for 3G dongles
Reboot option added to shutdown menu
And other little tweaks

Installation:
1) Using CWM. Copy CorvusVegaRom.zip to sdcard and update like any other update. Wipe data is recommended.

2) Not using CWM. Unzip the file and use adb-x where x is your operating system. If windows doesnt recognize the tablet use the usb drivers that are into the zip. This is the way that Modaco ROM is installed so if you have problem, please go to its post to see how to resolve.

Not tested:
3G Dongle. May work.

Still can't find Google Maps or the IMDB app on the Market with version 0.2.

Will try now doing a Wipe and Reinstalling it from scratch just to be sure.

EDIT : Just tried with a clean Install without luck. No Maps, IMDB or Facebook.

How is the switching from host / slave mode done ? Is this buzz kernel ported as is or vegan-tab related?

In terms of performance is there any difference from Buzz's rom / stock / other? Just looking for the most upto date nvidia graphics drivers etc.

Can you add a option to power options to reboot into host / slave mode (depending on first answer is it something dependent on buzz kernel)



Cheers matey
