Hi everyone, I'm completely stuck and need some help please with my girlfriends Advent Vega.
Basically, it's been useless out of the box since she had it for Christmas 2011, so I'm trying to get it updated so there's marketplace on there.
The other things I find on the internet and this forum regarding my problem are too technical for me to understand. I don't know what boot roms or r8 really mean.
I've followed Simonta's excellent blow by blow instructions (http://www.modaco.co...android-market/), and things were actually going ok, but now the tablet is stuck on a screen as per the topic title and there's nothing I can do about it as far as I can tell.
In my attempts to make this work, I've got to the stage where in Device Manager on the PC it has the driver as "NVidia Android Fastboot Device". I have nothing else associated with the tablet in Device Manager from what I can see, but I did have something listed as an Android Phone device before this issue happened, but I've since lost that, probably when I ran Audi trying to start from the beginning.
Turning the device on as normal has the screen saying "Starting Flashboot USB download protocol".
I do the recovery thing using the back button 2-second procedure as detailed in the instruction on myadventvega.co.uk and it will still show a "Starting Flashboot USB download protocol" screen, but I'm not sure what that is actually meant to do. I'm using a stopclock to get the seconds perfect so I know I'm doing it right, just don't know what the outcome is meant to be.
I'm used to Apple products where I can plug things in and they work, and upgrading the OS is the press of a button, so what I'm trying to do with this Vega is like trying to perform witchcraft; it's completely alien, so whatever anyone can do to help would be great please! I don't want to put this in the bin but I'm currently thinking that's where it needs to be. I just wish her mum bought her an iPad that worked and I wouldn't have wasted the day!
