This will not work on newbie5 modded stock rom
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:
(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:
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.
Small Taskbar (For Advent v1.09 and v1.10 firmware only)
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.
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 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.
Since there are several post discussing this I have opened this thread instead answering the same on all of them.
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
- Press Clear Data (answer ok on the message warning)
- Press Force Stop
6. Reboot the device and run market twice (the first one you will get the error message again).
Thanks to demonknight9 for posting the original market_update.zip
