hi mikhail, sorry for not replying to your pm before now, I have been away for the last week.
have you managed to get a firmware version from you touchscreen and the tputility?
the tputility.apk wont do anything if the firmware on the touchscreen controller is corrupt.
If the firmware is showing as 126.96.36.199 then the firmware is corrupt and the controller is probably done for.
I only know 2 ways to get new firmware onto the the touchscreens but both ways fail if you have 188.8.131.52 showing in the tputility.
The first way teo update the firmware is with the tputility and the firmware and config files. I have these files (extracted for a viewsonic rom). To use the firmware put the fw and config files in the root of a formated sd card on put it in the vega. then use the tputility apk and select fw upgrade to execute the update. If it works it take about 2 minutes to complete. the charger needs to be plugged in for the update to work. dont touch the screen or be temped to reset it because you think its crashed.
The other way is to install viewsonic's stock rom (version 1.09) and go through the setup and then install the viewsonic rom, version 1.11 this has a touchscreen update at first boot that will update the touchscreen if needed. if it fails to work you will see te message tp upgrade for a split second just before selecting the language, blink and you will miss it. If the upgrade works you will see the tp upgrade message of about 2 minutes.
make sure the battery is charged and plugged in or the update will fail. And dont touch the screen during the update, infact if it looks like its working dont touch anything and try to hold your breath.
I honestly dont think this will help if you have 99. firmware showing. I have tried these methods over and over on several screen that show this firmware and it failed on them all.
Infact I have seen the tp firmware upgrade fail a couple of times (on screens that where temperemental before attempting the update) so its not a good idea to try the tp upgrade unless you have no option. That is why i havent posted the firmware and config fies I have publicly and have only given it to people who have asked for it as a last resort. It could potentially cause havok in the wild and break more screens than it would fix.
That said if anyone wants the firmware files just ask.
Hello, first post I think. Sorry but my English is poor.
I was flashing VegaCream Beta3 (coming from VegaCream Beta2.1)
And the touchscreen stopped to work. I tried a lot of ROMs and TS doesn't work.
Installing ROM from POV I could run TPutility and shows FW 184.108.40.206.
I tried the method of this guide, but I'm not able to make work USB mouse on VegaComb.
Anyway if I understand your post there is no way to solve the issue with FW 98... showing, that's right?
Can you send me the FW files to try to fix it with TPutility fw upgrade?
