On the Wobbly screen issue that the guy earlier posted. I also am one of the only other people who has this issue on one of my devices. I have a prototype P10 (Vega) model in my posession from before it was officialy released, it has a 10-point multitouch screen on it that is different from the released models one. On all 2.2/2.3 ROMs (as in, with the old kernel) everything works fine, but using the new .36 kernel, it doesn't. I REALLY haven't looked in to this (although I should :P) but it seems to me that there are additional screens that the TP driver can be used for, and in the original kernel these device names are listed, where they are not in the newer kernel. I'm gonna have a word with Cass or Eduardo (the resident kernel kings) and see how obvious this might be to find and fix. But unfortunately, with the ongoing work with ICS and the relatively few people who have this issue (2, now :P) I'm not sure how much time they will be able to justify spending on the problem, but I'll see what we can do ;)


And that's all I can ask for (although it doesn't look too hot for running HC any time soon...)

Many thanks, Ian

Hello

Just installed vegacomb Beta 1.7 on my "point of view" (vega). The rom works like a charm exept for the most important thing! A google account. When I try to add my excisiting google account I get this error message:

"Can't establish a reliable connection to the server

This could be a temporary problem or your Android device may not be provisioned for data service. if it continues, call customer care."

Is there a way around this? As of know I can't download apps or check email...

why did you install vegacomb beta 1.7?

you need to search for the last version of vegacomb.. (you can also search for honeyice updates for vegacomb)

First post here so I am sorry if its in the wrong place!! I have bought a Vega for my wife for Xmas - I have installed Honeycomb 3.2 + the update (both 9n) - when I was on 2.2 my wifi was working but now it isnt. In settings Wi-Fi just says 'scanning' all the time.I added my network but it says 'Not in range'.

I apologize in advance if this has been asked before but I am trying to get it ready for her when she is at work and I am new to this all.

I've just bought a Vega for my son for Christmas. I've decided I want to update it to VegaComb 3.2 Build 9n Update3 and preload it with a few apps and media content. Is there some magical thread I haven't found which gives clear step by step idiots guide to backing it up (or is there a standard base reinstall somewhere?) I've seen references to ROOT and Clockworkmod, online Kitchen etc. but I'm lost in a sea of strange terms and don't have time to wade through everything.

If I pay for Online Kitchen access will that make everything easier? Will I get clear instructions then?

additionally, what are the 'Must Have' apps and games that will impress people? are they on other threads (links?)

Sorry to be such a pain but it's difficult until you get immersed in all this stuff.

There is a standard 'factory ship' install with instructions on www.myadventvega.co.uk

You don't need the Online Kitchen for Vegacomb and it won't make it any easier.

Hi All

I just purchased the Advent Vega today and couldnt wait to start making my own. I've only had it about 7hours and already ive put it onto this fantastic custom ROM. It's great to finally have a play on the Android 3 Honeycomb OS - I can see why Ice Cream Sandwich is so much like it!

Everything I have tried so far works like a charm apart from the screen calibration seems to be out slightly - is there anyway to recalibrate the sensetivity etc? And one more thing - I have downloaded the On Live android app (which i have for my samsung galaxy s and works like a charm) however on this ROM it is very grainy and the graphics of the games seem to be all like this - not sure if this is a ROM thing or an On Live thing - just wondered if anyone had similar issues?

Apart from that I am totally happy with this ROM - thank you all those guys that are involved with this - you certainly deserve a huge pat on the back!

Well, I spent 2hrs last night trying to upgrade :angry: I can't get into recovery mode and I can't get my laptop to install the USB driver. I know the Vega needs to be plugged into the mains, USB cable attached to both. I power it off by holding the power button for 6secs, hold back button for 2secs, hold the power button as well for 2secs, release the power button and continue to hold the back button for another 2secs. Nothing happens.:(

I'm running windows7 x64 on the laptop, this causes problems apparently so I will wait until I get back to my XP 32bit system and try again. I've also tried putting it in debug mode to try to force it to recognise the device and prompt for the driver, but to no avail. Also rebooted the laptop.

I'll report back tomorrow. If it works on XP I'll be struggling in future as my new desktop x64 gets delivered tomorrow. The XP box has a broken contact on the motherboard so the one fan doesn't work and the CPU one is whining so loud I have to turn the computer off to listen to the TV so it won't last much longer.

Further to my previous post! The issues with onlive was not ROM related so that's all good.

However now I have a really annoying problem whereby if I power my Vega down completely it doesn't turn on. I hold the power button for 2 secs and release and it lights up a little then a bit more then a bit more before going blank and not doing anything. Managed to turn it on somehow but now its doing it again :( anyone else experienced this? Many thanks.

Edit: I've searched other posts on here. I've tried the holding power button for a minute and recovery mode combo. But I just want it to turn on normally and it won't .


Edit again: I restored my Vega to the stock ROM and it now turns on no problems whatsoever. Does anybody know why this custom ROM would cause this problem? I really love this ROM and will probably stay on the stock ROM for now until I can find out any reasons - i followed a guide on here with a fine tooth comb and i'm quite flash happy with my other android device so I know what i'm doing. Cheers for anyone who can shed any light. Dan

I've been experiencing a problem with Vegacomb recently (9n, update 3).

After not having used my tablet for a while, I sold it to my dad. Booted it up fine, had a little trouble resetting to factory to delete my stuff but got there in the end. But after turning it off it wouldn't boot again, just got a blank screen with the backlight ('stale' boot?). I reflashed Vegacomb, even downloaded again to make sure it wasn't a corrupted download, seemed to install fine and works great until I turn it off, when it happens again and won't boot, at which point it's unusable until I reflash it. Not being able to turn off the Vega is, ironically, kind of a turn off for my dad, and I want to get it working for him considering he's paid me for it.

Anyone run in to this issue before?

Hi All,

I'm new and i bought my advent vega just four days ago. I use your rom MoDaCo Custom ROM for the Advent Vega with Online Kitchen and is really nice Thanks for your job!

But now i have a quick question, so i'm new in the tablet world and i would to know the differences between the Modaco Custom Rom and the rom VegaComb 3.2 that i would install.

So the question is can i use the rom in the same time? what is the defferences between this two roms, do you know something about the accelerometer because it not works properly.

For now thank you all and keep up a nice work! ;)

Roberto

Yep this is the exact same problem that I have with Vegacomb :( I tried stock rom, modded rom, cyanogen cm7 nightly rom and vegacomb last night and only experienced this problem with this Vegacomb rom.

I really love it and want to use it as a daily rom but when I cant turn it on I have to reflash again onto the stock or modded rom. Which then works fine. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!

okay guys not been that active lately on this forum so unfortunately having to catch up with latest developments within the advent Vega / honeycomb world :-) okay so pleased with my own Vega which "simonta" kindly installed this alternative rom on both my own and dads vega.at first everything was fine until unfortunately after several months off use the force shut down errors became a daily occurance.upon advice on here I started to use an alternative browser _opera mobile which all but got rid off the force closures . strange thing is dads Vega around the same time started to give more and more force closures obviously something was causing this as again neither off us experienced this when the Vega was first installed with the alternative rom,anyway advised him to use this alternative opera browser and he now reports things are fine.

still getting force closures with the Google maps /street view thou which is a pity.

regularly use a cache / browser history etc cleaner to tidy up any excess files etc and although this does work do still feel that the more the Vega is used with honeycomb the more niggles with the rom show up which again were not apparant at first.

occasionally now getting no internet access via wifi,finds the signal via scanning but comes up with disconnecting etc,have changed wifi channel so hopefully that may improve this particular problem :-) again strange thing is dads Vega showed the same problem within the last few days, again just seems strange that two Vegas both running honeycomb which was installed at the same time as each other should show the same problems around the same time. ??!!

okay not done any updates to the rom as for one I don't know how and two not sure if updating would cause any further problems, can it / will it ?

again 99% happy with the rom and thank everyone involved in making it possible just feel it would be great if the above niggles could be ironed out and it could be 100% right :-)

  • Download the following files: USB driver, Modded stock, vegacomb build 9n, vegacomb update 3 - unless you have download accounts with some of the mirrors, go make a cup of tea as they are somewhat slow, lol!
  • Plug in Vega with usb storage on, transfer the build 3, and build 3 update zip files to your memory card
  • Get your vega into recovery mode - back button 2 secs, back & power 2 secs, back 2 secs, release - screen will flash on a little, then go off
  • Plug in via USB - open device manager, find the yellow triangle, replace the driver - you downloaded it earlier
  • Once that is on, it should now show up as a vega in recovery mode, and you can launch modded stock
  • It should flash the vega, which will then restart
  • When vega boots, open applications, go to recovery, this will launch the recovery mode - use the volume to move up and down, power to enter a menu, and back button to exit a menu
  • Hit wipe data/factory reset - then confirm
  • Hit install zip from SD card - select the vegacomb 9n image and install
  • When done, reboot the system
  • Vegacomb should now load up for you - hit the power button with a long hold, select recovery
  • Once rebooted, you will be in clockwork recovery again
  • Hit install zip from SD card - select the update 3 zip file and install
  • When done, reboot, and you're laughing!!
Now, you probably don't have to do a couple of those steps (10/11), but this worked, so frig it. Someone else has probably detailed this elsewhere, but I couldn't find something that acutally laid out each damn step, so there you go. I wouldn't bother with the installer - couldn't get that to work for s***, the above seemed pretty foolproof by comparison.


First impressions - OMG, what an awesome ROM, spot on. My wifi is now working again (!) and the HDMI output is actually fine on videos opened with mvideoplayer - I can live with 3/4 screen on other stuff, as I don't use it for that. Games look lovely, the accelerometer is working a treat, all in all, fab stuff!



Just what I was looking for, I'd got as far as putting Vegacomb 9n on and thought the new interface was great, but I couldn't find the Recovery option (see 11) to put the update3 on it.

you guys have to keep in mind that vegacomb 9n u3 isn't 100% bug free.

someone at tabletroms had pickud up the work and started to make updates voor vegacomb, called honeyice. this will resolve much problems you guys have.

Ive read this forum you mentione and its great that someone has picked up where these amazing devs left off. However on trying every single way of flashing this rom (searched in about 5 different forums - even flshed the rom 7 times in one CWM session for good measure) the rom flashes okay however my vega will just not turn back on when i shut down using this ROM - all other roms flashed work fine.



I have noticed today that the only difference with flashing this rom and others is that when this rom is being installed - the bar on screen that usually fills orange for the progress of the install does not do anything - not sure if this is a problem or if the devs just didnt bother with it.

I have wracked my brain since xmas eve and flashed my vega approx about 25 times and Im just about to give up using this rom. I am going to have to flash another rom for the time being :(

I don't recall seeing anything suggesting that the work had been dropped here. 9n mod 3 is hardly old. I don't recall seeing that many issues with it either. I don't mind people going off on their own track but it would be nice if it was collaboration, not fragmentation. It's already hard for newbies deciding which way to go and some like to play but a lot just want a stable release with reasonable features. I know bugfixes are boring, but that's what people want. Your post smacks of someone jumping on an established bandwagon and saying I've taken his code and improved on it. I know I shouldn't complain as I'm just reaping the rewards of others labors.

you shouldn't complain indeed. i just pointed out that this rom still gets improved, just by another author. nothing wrong with that, since the honey ice updates are approved by the maker of vegacomb, and the updates are never without credits to the vegacomb team.
