From reading the forums, I have found that I need to reinstall the stock Rom from Myaventvega.co.uk and then reinstall the R8 over the top, but after trying about 5 or 6 times doing the 2 secs back, 2 secs both buttons and releasing the power button, I am finding the device is just switching onto the black screen within a second of touching the power button. This means I cannot get it into recovery mode and therefore cannot apply the stock rom to get it working again.
I am now starting to freak out slightly as I read that this device is supposedly 'unbrickable' and was the reason behind purching this device over a few others. But now I find I cannot get it into recovery mode to fix the problem.
One thing I did notice was that when I plugged the device back into my PC (win 7 Home) it started up the driver install and did show up the adb in the pop up window and is also showing in Device manager so it is being seen by the PC.
I have also downloaded the latest full version on v1.09 from myadventvega and tried to install that however that says it cannot find the device - do I need to go through and reinstall the drivers found on that site?
