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

Removed Themes
To save space, we had to remove the two cm included themes. If you want them, just download them here and install like any other app.

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.

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

encore = nook color
vega = vega + mobii

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

new build, new features, new links - updated first post.

Got the ROM finally working, maybe during 1st flash something went wrong.
Its still the old version, new version is still downloading (terrible slow connection here in China).
I installed it on a Viewsonic Viewpad 10s, which is the Vega but with build in 3G card. Unfortunately the card is not working. when I go to the settings -> Wireless & network settings -> Mobile networks, I can enable data communication, but he does not find any provider and the signal in the task bar shows no signal.
In the stock 1.09 ROM its working without any problems.

Will download latest version, test again and report here.

Does this means we can do the switch to host mode by the back button trick?
Can anyone try?
Thanks!

should work. feel free to flash another kernel over this. changes are not kernel related.

current build got some minor bugs which I fix when I get back tonight. mainly the new soft button. check nook color thread for details

Morsed by hitting a plastic pipe with my Desire HD. Excuse typos.

Great Rom!! Thanks for sharing your work & time with us.

Thinks I like.
CM7 Booting image
CM7 look & tweaks
CM7 Table tweaks, especially bottom bar.
Host mode working. N1!

Don't like:
The bar buttons. Really don't like them.Any change of changing them? I know it's a silly thing but them seem huge to me.

Bugs I found:
Default Keyboard going on and off every time I press a key. Annoying.
Wifi disconnecting randomly and not reconnecting in a while.
Touch Screen not responding until I change orientation. Weird.

Thanks!

We are all diffrent i like the soft buttons. about keyboard going on and off try moving soft buttons to right side and remove quick notification button. That fixed it for me. The buttons can be changed back later than it will work as it should. But i think theres some strange behavior from quick notification button, for example when pressing it it shuts down the screen it dont answer to any touches only on soft buttons, so i have to press the statusbar up and from there press the back button then it wakes up. I dont know, maybe its supposed to be like that.

Very nice ROM. Flashed it last night and seems to work nice. The buttons work great.
However i have a performance issue. A couple of minutes it works very smooth and then it freezes for a while and then continues. Still have the problem after a couple of reboots and after using it for a few hours.

second i installed the gapps that are available for CM7 (the metapackage wich should also work for tegra based devices). I can download apps, but then i cannot see in the market as downloaded.

I came from Modaco r8 and did a full wipe before installing.

Keep up the good work.

EDIT: When the screen freezes only the statusbar and the buttons are responding on touches. The rest of the screen does not respond. The screen will respond again when i change the orientation of the screen (i.e. from landscape to portrait and back to landscape).

    Here it is: :)

    CM7 Nightly Testbuild from 06. July 2011 with functional 3g and GPS for Tablets with the embedded HUAWEI EM770W card.

    This should also work with many Huawei USB-Dongles except GPS.

    why no new nightly updates?
    well, for one, bumble-bee is still figuring out the bluetooth issue. i guess he has help from fun_... i myself got sick of it and remembered, why i prefer coding instead of hardware modifying... so i start to work on tablet tweaks again... doing this, i will post a test-build each day, which is also a nightly build. was busy the last days (busy weekend), but am looking forward to code the first part on monday - then i will build test-roms for all 3 tablet devices.

    so its no use to build a new nightly today?

    regards

    In the last few updates in the My Apps section it shows no downloads. If I clear data for the market in settings - Applications then its ok for a short while but they eventually dissapear again. Does this happen for everyone?

    sorry, I noticed when I fixed market purchase issue, I removed necessary line :(
    please try to add following line to /system/build.prop
    Code:
    ro.sf.lcd_density=161
    it should be fix asap...
    3
    I hope you find some time to include the necessary code changes soon :)

    I hope the same...

    Sadly the link is down for the hacked nightly, can someone upload the 3g-test release somewhere please!?
