This is an extremely simple ROM modification to the standard Advent Vega 1.10 system image that only alters a couple of things. These are as follows:
  • /system partition size increased from 128mb to 155mb. (The reason for this will be explained below)
  • su and SuperUser.apk added - You can use root apps as standard now.
  • ClockworkMod Recovery built-in.
  • Added Pauls simple recovery reboot app to get into CWM recovery.
That's all! No google apps, nothing else, just these simple changes. This isn't intended to be used as an everyday ROM (although there is no reason why you couldn't).

The main reason for this, is to be used as ROM base for VegaComb (and any other ROM you wish to use). I have been struggling with the Vega's default partition sizes while trying to port Honeycomb, and rather than spending tons of time trying to make stuff way smaller than it was ever intended to be, this seems like the better option.

So, flash this in nVflash recovery mode (exactly the same as the stock 1.10 image) and off you go. Done. No need to do anything else. You can use this base with any ROM, the ONLY downside is that 30mb of storage has been re-allocated from /data to /system, which most people won't even notice.

ALL future versions of VegaComb will require that you use this modded system image as a base (as they will require more than 125mb of /system space). To return your partitions back to the way they were, just re-flash the stock 1.10 image from www.myadventvega.co.uk (this is the ONLY way to restore your partition sizes, restoring from a Nandroid backup will NOT change your partition sizes back). You DON'T have to return to stock when you want to switch from using VegaComb, all other ROMs should work perfectly fine on top of this base, including Corvus5 and CM7.

Also, it's handy to have this in case you brick your Vega as CWM is pre-installed :P

AS ALWAYS MAKE SURE YOU NANDROID BACKUP BEFORE FLASHING ANYTHING!

Good work, Love the idea of a bigger /system..saves a lot of messing around moving apps to /data. Cheers. Paul

Question Flash without usb cable?
Is there a way to flash this ROM without using the USB cable and recovery mode since my VPAD10s is giving a huge pain with windows 7 and the driver so I can not make it work.
Is there a version to be used with rom manager?

Thanks guys.

You need to use your PC because this ROM changes the partition sizes in the internal memory, and you need a PC program (nvflash) for that purpose.

Hope over to the Modaco Vega forum and search for YAUDIG and AUDI. They'll get the drivers installed for you.

Thanks simonta, already tried AUDI´s soft but no luck.
I´m starting to think that the issue might be with my pc/w7.
