VegaICS Beta 1
Fourth release of ICS for the Advent Vega and Shuttle based Family..
Im not usually one for OP's so excuse the lack of pics or other niceties you'd expect.
But a video of installation and basic usage can be found here, thanks gadgetoadicto ..
sorry for not posting the other vids out there .. seems i have a limit of 1 video per post...
You can find the build here :
VegaICS Beta1 MD5
1a5ed3243f147c3d25c0caa1a7568862 - VegaICS-Beta1.exe
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
HDMI Sound/Video 720p
HQ video (YouTube, Netflix, etc)
Camera (resumes from sleep, no workarounds)
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
Remove G-earth / GMaps (you can download them)
Add a file manager
Recovery reboot app
tun.ko added for VPN
Latest Gapps 120dpi supported
Browser settings modified showing settings advanced -> uagent
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
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.
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
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..
Backup current files / data as this image will wipe it all

Anyone else i spoke to i missed here (Sorry and a BIG THANK YOU)
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 !!!
