What are nightly builds?
Nightly builds are automated builds from latest cyanogenmod sources. they are not tested in deepth like RC's or stable versions. In most cases they work without any issues. Thats because all patches get reviewed before they are merged into sources - this way, merging of bad code doesnt happen very often.

Since vega does not have official nightly status yet, i do semi-official builds for you on a semi regular basis. We will get official nightlies, once bluetooth is working - but that is a pretty complicated issue.

Vendor vega
The vendor vega is currently for Advent Vega and PoV Mobii devices. There might be more added later on.

Official nightly mirror
http://mirror.teamdouche.net/?device=vega

Update 31.05.2011
buildbot had a hdd crash, and it can take some more days until nightlies are back online. that long, i might post semi-official nightlies here.

Nightly changelog
http://cm-nightlies.appspot.com/?device=vega

Nightly install instruction
Coming from another rom?
  • Do a full wipe in clockwork mod recovery
  • Install latest nightly build from here
  • Flash latest gapps from here
  • reboot
  • do the first-time-run-setup wizard
  • if you dont use gsm/phone, reboot to recovery and flash attached vega-phone-removal.zip - saves battery

Upgrading from older nightly?
  • Just flash latest rom from here in clockworkmod recovery
  • No need to wipe or flash gapps again, if you done on first install
  • In rare cases you will encounter bugs, noone else encounters - wipe then and do a fresh install
  • In at least 99% no wipe needed - there are known people not having wiped for at least half a year
  • Doing a nandroid backup before upgrading is always a wise idea, in case something goes wrong
  • if you dont use gsm/phone, flash attached vega-phone-removal.zip - saves battery
  • reboot to your updated rom and enjoy

Overclocking instructions
use settings->cm settings->preformance->cpu settings to switch frequencies. optionally use setCPU and similar tools.

USB Host mode instruction
to enable usb host mode for keyboard, mouse and other support, power device off. power it back on. once the screen gets lit, press and hold back key until device is booted (you see the homescreen or lockscreen). now you can connect various usb devices.

clockworkmod 3 for vega
with nightly 61 and later, use rom manager to flash latest stable recovery.

List of known bugs
This is a list of cm7 bugs specific to vega - i wont cover cm7 general bugs here, since they are covered on other places. Feel free to discuss them here, thats what this thread is for.
  • no legacy a2sd yet - working on it
  • power->reboot->recovery doesnt work and power->reboot->bootloader should be removed

This seems really sweet!

I have some questions:

1) Can the soft buttons be placed further away from each other? Unlike the Nook Color, the Advent Vega has a screen with touch registering issues and it's probably easy to misclick buttons if they're in the normal disposition.
2) What's the "encore" release for?

Danke für die Anstrengung!

Same here. Full wipe of data, cache, dalvik cache.

Waited 40 minutes but system does not boot. Only arrow making circles. Restart did not help either.

Yes, I checked the file on my SDcard its the Vega file. I checked as well the build.prop and updater-script, it says definitely Vega.

When I am back home tonight I will reflash stock ROM to recover and retry flashing your ROM.

The Vega rom boots and runs nice. Its very odd having statusbar going from bottom to top but very cool. Nice work. Now back to testing

Just one question, why did you post Nook Colour rom here? Encore is Nook, right?
Maybe we could have multi language, would be nice

Edit. You answered before i posted, im to slow

Does the ROM require EXT2/3/4 on the SD card? I don't have it and this is the only thing I can think about at the moment which might be different.

The ROM comes with its own kernel? I had before installed [KERNEL] Buzz Vega | .32.35 | CIFS | TUN | EXT4 | SLAB | NOOP | WiFi | NTFS | HOST/SLAVE | 0.7, Updated 25/03/11 from buzzing bee. But that should have been overwritten when I flash your ROM.

I came from CorvusVega rom but as long as you wipe everything cache,dalvik,system,data,boot, it shouldnt be a problem. I hate that we cant get in to recovery from off position. If thats possible to do with some hack that should be the next big thing
