Default Tutorial for Viewpad 10s

If you just bought a viewpad 10s like me, and you are already to put a custom rom (honeycom or ice scream.. thx to those who makes us nice custom roms), here is some help for beginers:

INSTALATION


Step 1 Getting ready

-You agree that I'm not responsible for any problem you could have doing what I say

-Get an USB cable male/male (internet, supermarket...)

-Get tablet drivers from here

-For honeycomb -> Download this rom
ModdedStock V2
Then VegaComb 3.2 Build 9n and VegaComb 3.2 Build 9n Update 3, puch this 2 zip in the tab

Now you are ready

Step 2 Flashing the rom

-Turn off the tablet
-Plug the AC and the USB cable (from the tablet to the pc)
-Push return button 2 seconds and while keeping pushing this push the button on/off 2s.
-Now install tablet drivers
-Finaly install the moded rom
-Now you got recovery, reboot to recovery
-Install zip in recovery, first viewcomb then the update
-Reboot
-Wait

Step 3
-It's should be ready

Step 4 (If you have screen issues)
Plug a mouse on usb, and run the application shuttile tools then calibrate your screen (thanks Tolriq for the tips)

RETURN TO DEFAULT SYSTEM
- Flash this as a rom here

USING USB KEY

-Set the device to usb host with shuttle tools. Plug an usb key. Now in the application eFile, you should find your files in
/mnt/usb//system_usb

KNOWS ISSUES OF THE VIEWPAD 10s
-Touchscreen have some issues
-Wifi ofen lose connexion after a while (the best thing to do is reboot)
-Some applications can do force close
-If you have more issues plz tell

Now I will complete this thread with what should be usefull for beginners like me


If you are unable to install apps from market

1.Go to

Settings
Applications
Manage Applications
ALL
select GOOGLE SERVICES FRAMEWORK
CLEAR DATA.

2.Reboot

3.Back to Settings
Accounts & Sync...
Google account & delete.
Re-enter your Google account

Choosing the application used to open a kind of file don't appear
Switch the tab from landscape to portrait...

Just a little information to help for the calibration since i get exactly the same problem

The tablet accept mouse on it's usb port much easier to configure and calibrate after reflashing the stock rom.

the viewcomb rom in your link is out of date. current version is 7.3 i think

btw. my GF got the viewpad 10s. i flashed viewcomb but switched back later to the updated orginal rom (version 1.11) and it runs much better than viewcomb. no FCs so far.

Link to the rom: http://ap.viewsonic.com/my/kbase/article.php?id=474

salut

j allais le dire

le 7.3 ne st pas encore downloadable :/

pour le wifi qui bug apres une veille ,je suppose que c est la faute des pilotes car sur vegacomb et honey ice ,ca reprend tres bien

j espere de bon nouveaux pilote en 7.3



hello
i went on to say

the 7.3 does not downloadable yet: /

wifi bug for that after a while , I suppose that is the fault of the drivers because in vegacomb and honey ice, it resumes very well

i hopes of good new driver in 7.3

Default Best rom for viewsonic 10s

Last Viewcomb works perfect. If you didn't try, try it now, you won't regret!!! First of all, the screen touch works perfect and all the rest, after few days, I got only one bug with google map.
