I have given up on the viewpad for now.

No matter what I do it just will not use the USB like it used to in viewcomb :(
found my dock last nite at midnight so will see it it works in that next week as im sooo busy right now.

I now using a Sumvision Astro tablet with 4.0 out the box 7" screen.
Down side is small screen and no support for USB hub like the viewpad.

Im sending my viewpad off for the touch screen repair early next week.
When I get it back (unless the reapirers can do it) anyone on here wanna take a look at mine for a small fee?

This forum has THE BEST support of any forum I use!

Hi elf69

I seem to remember that Viewcomb
created problems for those switching roms. You probably need to NV flash
Modded stock 1 or 2 before installing
a new rom after using Viewcomb.

Thank you.

Will download a stock rom then flash to ICS.

but will wait until my pad has been sent off and come back from repair as my touchscreen is doing my head in.

I installed VegaCream CR2 some time ago and today installed DroidMote Server on it. That doesn't work, whilst on another tablet it worked fine (so the client is okay).

In the description of said program it says it requires a uinput module to be available in the kernel. I guess this is not available in VegaCream? Can anyone that knows about the kernel confirm this? Is there another version for our vega's that does contain uinput? Or a loadable module somewhere?

After over a year and a half happily using Paul's R8 version of Froyo with no problems to speak of, I took a deep breath and flashed the Vegacream RC2 ROM. Having done that and rebooted I was stunned at the difference. My Vega is faster and seems to have lost the over-sensitivity problem with the touchscreen when charging from the mains that the early tablets had. The display is also much more crisp. Now, don't get me wrong, I have been using my Vega as much as my laptop, and I that is a lot. I was happy with Paul's ROM, but now I am ecstatic with Vegacream. I have yet to find anything it will not do for my purposes, and it seems to be rock solid.

All I did after the upgrade was install Titanuim Backup and restore all my apps and data. The whole process was remarkably pain free.

I wish to thank the developers for a truely brilliant product, especially since they do it in their own time.

*WARNING*
As you might already have read, some people have problems with their touchscreens after flashing a new ROM (this can happen with any ROM). In worst case their touchscreen has died. There has been an investigation into this problem and the conclusion is that there are bad batches of touchscreens that can die when they overheat. This is also due to a design flaw of our tablets. As a precaution it is strongly adviced to disconnect the power from the tablet when booting the first time after flashing a new ROM. This because after flashing a new ROM, the tablet needs to do a lot of processing and that generates heat and increases the change of overheating the touchscreen.

Installed recently and works with a wireless mouse & separate wireless keyboard whilst plugged into the docking station. Dock USB works on some memory sticks (reading NTFS as well) but not all. The on board USB does not register any memory sticks, even when I used the USB app from the R8 rom to change it over. (sneaked this on via ti backup)

Overall it is snappier than R8 & the vortex wallpaper is well cool off my telly. I love the fact that No longer have to mess around with flash players any more. Many thanks for this ROM. It's prompted me to donate to Paul for the sterling functionality R8 has given me. Who knows, if this ICS RC2 holds up, I may part with another tenner...

Will post any problems as they come

Thanks to all.

Update on ICS RC2.....
Bluetooth & Camera good. Have been Skyping & passing around photos to/from phone.
I-player, DVD file Daroon player & MX Player working very well.
A Kingston G3 Data traveller 8GB stick NTFS formatted works from the dock only, but files transfer ok. Haven't managed to get older sticks to work FAT32 or NTFS. The on board USB won't dig a memory stick though, even when utilising the R8 USB swap slave / Host app.
Advent wireless keyboard works a treat & automatically suspends the android pop up keyboard.
Microsoft wireless Arc mouse works a treat with a blue cursor arrow that pops up when I unfold the mouse for use. Just as well as I could not copy in the 'Cursor Fix' into System Framework folder (Read Only Folder, even with Root Explorer)
TI backup allowed me to recover apps & data from my R8 setup. Just awaiting a fast 32GB micro SD card before I retire the current class 4 16GB card with my R8 setup & go mad for apps.
Stock Browser & Chrome do work but I have experienced some freezing up where the 6 second power button reboot is the only way to get past this. (Shame that)... Turns out that is not just the browsers, reactivated ShadowGun (FPS) and got another freeze up during the 400mb(ish) Download. Another attempt was all it took & what used to graphically screw up on R8 runs like a dream on ICS RC2. Game on :-)
All in all a very polished experience bar the odd bit of freezing...

I did install the stock ROM NVFlash to reset from R8 before I NVFlashed the ICS RC2. Noting problems from other folk with CWM attempts I'm glad to have gone this way.

Any pointers on the occasional freeze up's would be greatly received.

Thanks again to all

R8 USB Host / Slave swap will not work with this ROM (and may well mess it up as that employs a mod to the kernel to work). I think there is an embedded app (haven't got my Vega with me to check) which allows Host / Slave swap. Maybe the use of the R8 USB Host / Slave app is the underlying cause of the lockups.

Use Shuttle tools for switching host / slave. It is indeed included in the ROM.
