VegaICS Beta1 MD5
=================

1a5ed3243f147c3d25c0caa1a7568862 - VegaICS-Beta1.exe

Synopsis
========

This is the first Beta build of ICS for the vega and other tabs like it.
This should now be feature complete and deserving of an upgrade from Alpha status.
This is very stable and nice to work in from my point of view, nothing i can see
as major that will prevent you having a nice experience.

Work is based on Android 4.0.3


Features
========

Touchscreen
HW acceleration
SD card
USB host
Bluetooth
A2DP (fixed??)
Wifi
3G (fixed???)
Sound 48khz
HDMI Sound/Video 720p
Sensors
Sleep
HQ video (YouTube, Netflix, etc)
Camera (resumes from sleep, no workarounds)
Mic
120 DPI Launcher fixed
CWM recovery with no stale boot
Advanced Power Menu (some of it anyway ;) see not working for details )
Add the shuttle tools apk for usb host
GPS libs added
Calendar / Gallery Gapps
Dictionary added
Remove G-earth / GMaps (you can download them)
Add a file manager
Recovery reboot app
tun.ko added for VPN
Apps2SD Fixed
Latest Gapps 120dpi supported
Browser settings modified showing settings advanced -> uagent


In Progress
===========
Sleep problem relating to WiFi

3G, let us know if it works, if not provide logcat and dmesg. Should
work fine for data, voice and sms will require an Android recompile to
add those features, no time to do right now, will do later once 3G is
confirmed to work, i dont have it so cant test.

Slow sound in Skype, 48khz sound should fix it .. feedback required ..

Power menu options need fixed / removed


Strangeness
===========

Wifi should work fine now, a new library and framework has been created
to enable Wifi to work properly .. However .. Wifi is slow to resume from
sleep.. you may have to toggle Wifi off/on to have it resume .. If you wait
it returns no problems.. its just a bit slow.


Not working
===========

Advanced Power menu on shutdown has some options that dont work

Reboot to recovery
Reboot to bootloader
Aeroplane mode (does not come out of it as i seen)

Ill get to fixing / removing these at a later date


Installing
==========

This Beta build is in NVflash format only, i could not be bothered yet
to create a CWM update file yet as its still to early for me to care
for that.. Just execute this in the normal fashion from windows.
Or extract it and do from linux for all you penguin lovers out there..


Recommendations
===============

Backup current files / data as this image will wipe it all


Devs
====

Cass -- VegaICS and some other stuff.
ejtagle -- Fantastic kernel work /core libs and sage like advice


Thanks
======

Paul O'Brien from Modaco for the Vega when mine went boom
Lareeth for his reboot to recovery app
Shaizer for his VegaICS splash screen
Others who provided splashscreens .. thanks too .. keep at it i may use them yet
DVTonder for his Advanced power menu code
MrDeadlocked for his fix to make DVTonders menu appear on our tabs
the3dman via MrDeadlocked for the 120dpi launcher fix
MrGuy for the info on Mic sound duplex fix
Wooshy1/Areo/scanno for the recovery image (no stale boot on most tabs)
brucelee666 for the random reboot fix, ueventd fix
Scanno for the touch recovery

The community for all the feedback and testing
Anyone else i spoke to i missed here (Sorry and a BIG THANK YOU)


Features
=======

Most of the large dirs in /system are now squashfs files, this is to save on space.
You need to use squashfs with gzip support if you are to play with them. Kernel must
also have squashfs support included.

The dir that contains WiFi firmware and kernel module has been relocated to /system/etc/misc/
this is to ensure of the minimum file size of any update we make to the kernel and provide to you.. It makes not difference as its linked back to its proper place.

tun.ko for vpn can be found in /system/etc/misc/ too, linked back to the proper place.

For all other libs you need to add, add them to /system/vendor/lib, they will be picked up.

Enjoy !!! Feedback welcome !!!

Just brought one off eBay for £130 on the strength of the modding community. Used MoDaCo for baking custom HTC Desire ROM's in the past so just renewed my adfree (only fair if going to use this!) and when the Vega arrives tomorrow I'll slap VegaICS Alpha 3 with Update 2 on it straightaway and let you know how it goes.

Big thanks to everyone for doing this.

Oh - if there's any instructions on how to make a CWM package I'll happily spend some time in making it based on the Alpha3U2 build. Just need someone to point me in the right direction to get me started! :D

Is a full CWM image even a possibility, due to the partition layout would the user not require to at least nvflash the correct partition layout for ICS? An update CWM (of update2) would be fine, but is a CWM file of the whole ROM even a viable possibility?

Hi
I backed up ICS Alpha 3+ update via CWM and then tried to restore when running Modded stock 1.10v2 as a test.
All I ended up with was a boot looping initial screen before the IÇS logo. Alpha 2 restored with no problems but,
then 3 is a new build.
Just my observations.

Thanks. Have been looking forward to a really good smooth running ICS for Vega, and this is the best I think.
