update/12\09\2012

NEW
FIXED IO issue here
More roms (Awesome)hereCM10 l/s/k hereIM-a830l 1.38 update and this is how to get it.Best rom for now;Latest software update for the PVR2 a830L here and here for explanation(explanation has a different rom which is my daily driver rom) stock rom for PVR2 A830s here and here for help on a830sCM9 for S here ,k here and for L here(wifi,nfc and other major bugs)
-Installation bare bones simple just put zip on extsd card wipe data,cache and dalvik cache and install zip from sd card.
  • With thanks for our xda member Borisov we have another rom here.(But be careful as u may run into few bugs like music player,power amp&motion controls are not working).The rom promises u high level of free ram to operate with.So thanks again to Borisov for this contribution.(He found the rom on a chinese thread an decoded the hard language to give us this rom from there)
-Plug ur device to ur pc with the micro USB cable.
-Install android sdk.(optional)
-Download this file, unzip and run Root_RC2.bat (if using Windows 7, please right click and select Run as Administrator).

-Press any key then ur device reboots and wait before pressing again.When ur device finishes reboot and u can see the lock screen press any key for step 2.Now ur device should reboot and be really slow but wait until u see the lock screen again and press any key for step 3.
-At boot ur device is rooted and check if super user is installed.

-For cwm connect ur device and run set up(note that this doesnt install a permanent cwm(5.8.4...) but rather triggers it by sending the necessary files over to ur phone which are deleted at reboot.So this is done every time to enter cwm mode)(Cwm needs SD card >3gb to work or else u'll get mount err.)
-The new cwm can be optained in fast boot mode.After triggering the first cwm above download this then put ur device in fast boot mode( by holding volup+down+pwr buttons)and selecting fast boot.Connect to pc and install drivers manually by choosing device sky adb drivers in device manager in the android phone section.Run cwm fast boot bat follow instructions and u get cwm.
-Nandroid backups tend to get stuck at last stage of backing up data.Never tried to restore but if there is a courageous tester u'll be welcome

Great! I think I'll be getting one of these when I move to Korea in a couple weeks, but only if I can root it.

Info 2 80-character SMS limit and how to fix it

Hope this helps anyone who is running a stock ROM on this phone and is frustrated with the 80-character SMS limit.
You may have tried an app such as ICS Messaging (available from the Play Store), but found that it won't send any SMS, though it might show received SMS.

This phone's stock SMS app (mms.apk) sends each character in double-byte to accommodate Korean characters, so the 160-character SMS limit is halved.
I found that if you save your own phone number to the "My Number" area on your SIM card (which is not done by default on many newer SIM cards), this somehow allows third-party apps to work, and allows the sending of SMS up to 160 chars - and more, if your operator supports it.

1. First, find an ancient phone, one that can write to the "My Number" area. Get a really old "dumbphone" such as an old Series 40 Nokia. BlackBerries work very well (I used a Curve). Or you could try an iPhone. (I'm sensing a joke here...)

2. Put your SIM card in and power up the phone.

3. Now, you need to write your own number to the SIM card.
On the Curve I went to Options > Advanced Options > SIM Card.
On the iPhone, it should be in Settings > Phone > My Number.
In the My Number area, enter your full phone number, including the country and area codes.

4. Exit and power off the phone. Put your SIM card back into the Vega Racer 2.

5. Go to the stock SMS app and try sending an SMS, preferably to a friend who is on a different network operator.
If it works, proceed to the next step.

6a: If you have root: Use Root Explorer to browse to /system/app and rename Mms.apk to something else, say, Mms.apkOriginalBackup.
Then install ICS Messaging from the Google Play Store.
Check that it works and that you can now send SMS longer than 80 characters. (N.B.: As I mentioned above, make sure your operator hasn't imposed any limits on SMS length.)

6b: If you don't have root (I didn't test this): You can't get rid of the stock messaging app, so just disable its notifications from within the app. Then install ICS Messaging from the Google Play Store. Check that it works.

If this solution helps anyone else please let us all know. (Also if any other messaging apps, such as Go SMS, work for you.)
