Hi Jean luc
I posted the a fix for the sd card issue over on tabletroms it is as follows but I have only tested this on win7
MTP Driver Install Troubles:
Open Device Manager and find the offending MTP device.
Right-Click and choose Update Driver Software
Then choose Browse My Computer for Driver Software
Then click Let Me Pick From a List of Device Drivers on My Computer
Then choose All Devices
When that list populates choose Standard MTP Device followed by MTP USB Device
Click Yes to the warning and VIOLA!
Credit goes to Fosser and Jaybob413 as I found this elsewhere on the net
As for your problems seeing apps on your SD card I really not quite sure what it is you are expecting to see can you explain more.
Hi mytoza - another tick in the green box for you my friend!
The MTP driver fix works! (Update: Vega now shows up in Win7 Control Panel>Devices and Printers as 'MTP' with a pod/music player icon, and in Win7 Control Panel>Device Manager as 1.Android Phone>Android ADB Interface. Means there is easy GUI access to files from laptop. Cool. ).
I'd tried it several times before but never dug down into the un-automated levels of the driver install wizard.
It's not exactly explanatory is it!
I've spent hours and hours reading 'fixes' that involve installing ADK, SDK, JAVA SE BLAH V.93XXX with binaries, emulators, busyboxes, platforms, Bridges for people who Develop Android etc etc. Not good, eh? Horribly complicated.
And there's your miracle MTP fix
which is just about as simple as it gets! Wow, just wow! Every Android owner should have this tattooed on their PC desktop! (Can we flag this fix again for other confused newbies?)
As for the invisibility issue on Settings>Device>Apps>On SD
Card, let me see if I can explain it better:
1. All the right apps are already on the SD card (previously backed up via Nandroid function on CWM).
They can be seen by PC via USB (see MTP miracle stuff above) and by Vega via e.g. OI File Manager, File Expert and most every other 'android assistant' app.
2. On Vega, open Settings>Device>Apps>On SD Card
= shows nothing
3. To get any apps into Settings>Device>Apps>On SD Card
I must navigate to a folder containing backed up .apk files using e.g. OI File Manager or other file manager, choose the app I want to use and reinstall it individually to Vega AND re-save it to the SD card.
4. Then it shows up in Settings>Device>Apps>On SD Card
and I can use/manipulate it in the normal way.
I mean, there's a workaround but it seems rather convoluted. I guess I expected the new ROM's Settings to automatically see and use the apps that I'd backed up.
Thinking it through, it's probably a failure of my understanding of the connectedness between the SD card and ROMs (...and there's another whole bag of tricks! ;-)
