Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum and in my 40s so please be kind. I have an Advent Vega with the following info in settings; Android version 2.2
EC version 1.9.0
Kernal version 2.6.32.9_p10_v1.10_20110218_DIX
Build number harmony 2.2 FRF91 20110211.101539

I bought it second hand and believe it had some sort of ROM update but with poor knowledge and messing about I messed it up.
I have now flashed the original image (I think) and its back to standard settings (I think)
Where do I get a new ROM ? Are they available from this site?

I'd like access to the market (kindle etc) and my device time and date keeps resetting.

Sorry for the long winded post.

All help much appreciated.

Regards
Martin

Do not worry, I am in my 40+ also. But what would you like to do with your Vega. If you want to have the latest android version, use vegacream and use the nvflash version.

If you feel VegaCream is worth it and would like to show your gratitude (the donate link is added on request):

AND also do NOT forget about ejtagle and brucelee666 for their great work.

VegaCream is available for download here http://www.tabletrom...obii-tegra.html and here http://www.modaco.co...pov-mobii-tegra

The nvFlash version is the easiest way to go; it's flashed the same way you flashed the Stock ROM.

Once flashed, you'll have access to Google Play Store (formerly Android Market) - though you will need to setup a Gmail (Google Mail) account if you haven't already got one.

ClockSync ( https://play.google....ClockSync&hl=en ) from PlayStore will take care of your time keeping problem.

edit: added MoDaCo link.

Well... it's scanno, ejtagle and brucelee666 you should really be thanking - these guys are the chief architects... (and most of the time, I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA what they're on about!)... I just point people in the right direction...

Any problems.. post back here... and don't be too hard on yourself. You know about nvFlash and that's more than most know... the first ROM (MoDaCo r8) I flashed, I softbricked my tablet... we all begin somewhere.

PS.. I'm 48 this year! ... and that makes me an old codger!

Enjoy VegaCream - I know I will.

GED.
