This will not work on newbie5 modded stock rom

Hi All.

I have made this rom add-on to try to keep the device as clean and stable as possible. I could add custom boot screens, launcher (like launcher pro) and much more, but I have only added the essentials. As i think everyone has different tastes and the extras are easily installed. I have chosen to use the software tool which is part of the stock firmware, this insures easy installation on any os. No usb recovery drivers or clockwork mod needed!

V4 Rom Add-On includes:

Market (New)
Google Talk
SuperUser
3D Gallery
Google Calendar
Visionary
YouTube App
(removed titanium backup due to size restraint, can be installed through market)

V4 can be installed over the top of V3, titanium backup will remain


V3 Rom Add-On includes:

Market (Old)[Full]
SuperUser
3D Gallery
Google Calendar
Visionary
Titanium BackUp
YouTube App

If you cannot sync contacts or calendar. Please use this fix http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=131
I have updated the rom add-on now so if you use the version with -1 at the end, it contains the fix.

Optional .ZIP's

Small Taskbar (For Advent v1.09 and v1.10 firmware only)
Gmail
Contacts

Google Maps can be downloaded from the market

I highly recommend launcher pro, its available from the market. It is a lot better than the stock launcher, and the payed for version has some great widgets.

Button savior, also available from the market. Is also for me a must for the vega, it adds the missing buttons as on-screen buttons.

This V3 update is more of a clean up. There was a lot of confusion over the multiple .rar parts and some compatibility issues with v1.10 POV firmware. I have now removed the small taskbar and added it as a update, so now my rom add-on is fully compatible with the pov firmwares and does not require multiple .rars. Advent firmware users who want the small taskbar, simply flash the Small_Taskbar.zip. If you have already installed my v2 version there is no need to update, as i said its more of a clean up. There are a few added apps, but they are easily installed.

Install Instructions:

1 - Download the .zip you wish to flash. Copy the .zip to "software update" on your SDcard.

2 - Navigate to settings/software tool/software update on vega, and touch the .zip

3 - Device will reboot and a "out of a box" android will appear and install the parts.

You will not lose any of your apps/data from this process.

Please make sure you have sufficient power to apply Add-On, i would recommend 50%

Root Instructions:

Root is required for some apps. Eg Button savior requires this for it to function fully.

1 - Open visionary

2 - Touch "Temproot now" the screen will go blank for a few seconds and return to the visionary page. Then click it again. (i have no idea why it is required to do this twice, but in my experience it is necessary)

3 - Touch "Attempt Permroot now" After a few seconds a super user prompt will appear, allow the prompt. Then device will reboot and it should be rooted.

If Flash does not work, navigate to /etc/shuttle_data and run the flash.apk. That will reinstall the included flash version.

If all apps are not showing in the market please follow ice-mn tip. Many thanks to him for this.

To get all apps (at least all I have looked for ) you only have to follow the steps described.

1. Go to Manage Applications (in settings/applications)
2. Press the running tab and select market (if market is not running execute it)
3. Select Market from running apps. And:

  • Press Clear Cache
  • Press Force Stop
4. Go back and Select Google Services Framework. And:
  • Press Clear Data (answer ok on the message warning)
  • Press Force Stop
5. Try to run Market. You will get an error message.
6. Reboot the device and run market twice (the first one you will get the error message again).

Thanks to skyball2 and alphaola for supplying stock POV frameworks
Thanks to demonknight9 for posting the original market_update.zip

More gmail apps can be downloaded from the market. As demonknight9 says its very easy to install. No need for CWM.

1 - Download market_update0.zip file and put on storage card.
2 - Navigate to settings/software tool/software update, and navigate to location of market_update0.zip.
3 - Run the market_update0.zip
4 - Device will reboot and install the parts.

You will not lose any of your apps/data from this process.

It looks like flashing things to are vegas is easy, can be done from the software update. The zip is unsigned. More things can be added but i thought i would keep it simple to start with.

Hope its useful

I have made one with flash,spare parts and superuser as well, but it is larger than i can upload to xda dev. if anybody has somewhere i can upload i would be gratefull.

EDIT:I have added the flash.apk to enable flash, visionary to fully root the device and spare parts to disable compatibility mode for games to the attachments.

Good idea to add the bits. Why don't you upload it to fileape? Easy peasy to open an account. Just chose a username and a pass, no email, no confirmation just a plane doddle. go here; www.fileape.com

Which part is it hanging on, once run the device should reboot, then a picture of a box with a arrow appears, and the progress bar bellow turns orange. I have flashed this and different versions with no problems.
