These were grabbed from my over-the-air update. They are full recovery images that wipes everything except the user data.

NOTE: These are only for 1.0.1 or 1.1 based stock versions. For 1.2 based stock versions, they will be hosted in the same location as my 1.2-based mods./[/url]

===================================


Instructions for use with the internal memory:

1- Mount your device to your PC

2- Download the ROM you wish you use, and save it to the root of the mounted drive. Rename it to "update.zip"

3- Create a folder on your mounted drive callled "recovery".

4- In that recovery folder, create a file called "command", and add this line to that file:

Code:
--update_package=SDCARD:/update.zip
NOTE to Windows users: If you use notepad, it might name the file "command.txt". That won't work. It cannot have a file extension. I would recommend downloading and using the excellent program "notepad++" as a notepad replacement.

5- Shutdown the device and then boot into recovery (Hold Power button and volume up key for a few seconds). If you are using standard recovery, the install should run automatically. If you are using clockworkmod, you will need to manually choose the update.zip file.

6- Reboot when completed (standard recovery users will be rebooted automatically).

Other note: These stock ROMs WILL flash recovery, as they are designed to do that. If you are using clockworkmod, that recovery tool will most likely be wiped out. Also, if you experience a boot loop post-install, you won't have clockworkmod installed to correct it - there are ways to install a clockworkmod image off your microSD, if necessary, then wipe your user data. Most times, these reboot hangs are due to incompatible data partitions between mods - this is especially true for ROMs like gADAM.

It's spotty with cwm - I've seen the same thing - cwm probably has an issue being overwritten, for some reason.

You might want to alter the ZIP and just rip out the line that's trying to overwrite recovery.

Had this error too

I removed this line from the updater-script file and CWM finished the install succesfully


assert(package_extract_file("recovery.img", "/tmp/recovery.img"), write_raw_image("/tmp/recovery.img", "recovery"), delete("/tmp/recovery.img"));

thanks again roebeet

should I be worried about leaving superuser on this if im returning it?

I don't think they'll catch it. Just don't leave your user data intact or anything in the internal memory!

deleting that line from the updater-script file worked for me with clockworkmod recovery installed.. if anyone is a noob here's some instructions..
unzip the vanilla recovery rom.. go into the "update-smb_a1002-2967-user\META-INF\com\google\android" folder and edit the updater-script file. I had to use notepad++ to edit it, regular notepad wasn't showing the formatting correctly. then just delete this line "assert(package_extract_file("recovery.img", "/tmp/recovery.img"), write_raw_image("/tmp/recovery.img", "recovery"), delete("/tmp/recovery.img"));" save the file, then zip up the contents of the update-smb_a1002-2967-user folder into an update.zip and copy it to your gtablet. make sure the inside of the update.zip shows the system.img etc files in the root of the zip and that you don't zip it up so those files are one folder deep into the zip. hold down volume + while turning the gtablet on and it should load clockworkmod and let you flash the new update.zip.

It's not in here -- 1.0.1 is a 100% vanilla ROM from Viewsonic so I did not touch it. Viewsonic even calls it 1.0.1.

For the command file, you can grab that in the homebrew 1.0.0 version.

I've flashed my g-tab back to TnT stock dated 11/22. Question: is it possible to get it back to the PRE-updated TnT stock? -- i.e. v.1.0.0 of roebeet's homebrew firmware?

It's a very long story, but I might need to return the g-tab and I need to get it back to the absolute original shape... MANY THANKS!

EDIT: I did tried the flash 1.0.0 on top of 1.0.1 but (not too surprisingly perhaps) nothing happens. I was able to get back to 1.0.1 from TnT Lite 2.0 so I believe I used the correct method.
