Thumbs up Problem & Solutions with the Pad

hi
well this was a problem i faced today and got a solution for the same wanted to share the same

Problem
well after flashing a custom Rom today i read about a apps2sd which was available in the market i downloaded the same to my pad installed the APK on my pad its some application which said it will enable JIT i clicked on it and the phone restarted and then i had just a blank screen ie it was on but blank

i kind a got a heart attack as my pad is only around a month old but then life is about taking risk right or it wont be fun
solution
i remembered i did some thing similar to what is given below long time back with my old gene aka HTC 3400 win Mob i just tried the same & it worked for me

hold the volume buttons both of them & power button & while holding these two u need to restart by inserting a pin in the restart small hole available next to the mike
on doing the above u will be able to got to ur CWM and u can re install the os u want again that what i did

just sharing my experience in case u get the same problem
thanks
hari

Thumbs up OlivePad VT-100 Root,Clockwork & Working ROMS

hi
recently got an Olivepad VT-100 and got it rooted and clockwork Mod installed on the same and also backed up my rom .
So For those who have been struggling to get the same done like me here is a simple guide

1. Get to know that The Olivepad VT - 100 is the same as
these Models : Viewpad 7 Cherry Mobile Superion, Commtiva Linx N700, Spice MI700, and Camangi FM600( found this out the hard way)

for rooting it go here

[TOOL] Viewpad 7 Backup, Root & Recovery - By lakehousetech (thanks to his help i got it done)
Link : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1015005
one more link for the same : http://android.modaco.com/topic/3240...n700viewpad-7/

For recovery via Rom Manager see below link (note i have not used this)
Link : http://hucqim80.blogspot.com/2010/12...-recovery.html


the superoneclick did not work for me so for those who have the same problem
take ginger break APK from attached install it on ur Olive pad and bang it works with one click
IT worked for me
thanks to Nos0x for this find

Note : i did not use ADB for the commands as im not comfy with the same
i used Terminal emulator from the Pad for the commands


update : i also tried re flashing my nand backup via CWM it worked fine for me


This worked for me as i was willing to take the risk
so remember the risk is always yours and im not responsible if you brick ur phone or anything


Important : on rooting & getting CWM 1st do a Nand backup of ur original Stock rom before trying to flash any rom.So u are always safe & can go back to ur stock Rom

Hey, thanks for the speedy reply. I did try gingerbreak. However, though I can install ans use most root required apps, when I try to manually install busybox, it fails.. is this normal.

the bigger problem is, ever since I first tried to root my olivepad, I am not able to enter recovery mode at all. I am trying all of this just so I can use rom manager and flash into the default rom. ;-( any help here? is there any way I can restore the olivepad to stock. If I unroot the system, can I give it for service under warranty?

hi
if u successfully root & get the CWM installed u can do a nand back up and restore the same but when u root u have the risk of loosing ur warranty

but to my knowledge if u re install the OS and re install ur original image
u need to backup ur oringal via ADB or termemulator pls read lakehousetech thread for details i have given the link in the 1st page
u can do this via terminal emulator or ADB & remove the superuser
i dont think the service guys go all that deep in checking if u have rooted and if u dont have the super user on ur pad i Dont thing they will find out u have rooted ur pad . this is as per my experience in India with my phone

the risk is always yours Kindly note im not responsible for any issues u get into with your Pad

note ; read this too : http://android.modaco.com/topic/3240...n700viewpad-7/
it also has info on how to install busy box u can also get a busy box installer from the market

Hi Haree,
Thanks a lot for all the info. And honestly, I don't need to be reminded that me breaking my pad is not your mistake ;)
Well, I will sure look into the new link.
BTW, I needed a little help understanding something. When I saw the size of my OS partition, I realized there is only 32kb of space left. Due to this, I am unable to use oneclick to copy new files into the OS partition from the sd card. Could you please confirm whether this lack of space in the OS partition is normal?
And I am still searching for a way to force modify the OS partition using some other manual pc oriented means (not the exe's). Would be grateful for your suggestions. :)

Again, thanks a lot.
Regards
Milton

if so it is better to have more than 1GB and u can do this with CWM

im not a techie i just read and do the needful to get the rom flashed on my phone/Pad
