Hello guys,

www.tabletroms.com user cass has made a ICS rom for the Advent Vega.
The download and the installation stay in the discription.
All credits goes to him!!:D


Thanks!


You can find the build here :

VegaICS-Beta1.exe

VegaICS Beta1 MD5
=================
1a5ed3243f147c3d25c0caa1a7568862 - VegaICS-Beta1.exe


Synopsis
========

This is the first Beta build of ICS for the vega and other tabs like it.
This should now be feature complete and deserving of an upgrade from Alpha status.
This is very stable and nice to work in from my point of view, nothing i can see
as major that will prevent you having a nice experience.

Work is based on Android 4.0.3

Strangeness
===========

Wifi should work fine now, a new library and framework has been created
to enable Wifi to work properly .. However .. Wifi is slow to resume from
sleep.. you may have to toggle Wifi off/on to have it resume .. If you wait
it returns no problems.. its just a bit slow.


Not working
===========

Advanced Power menu on shutdown has some options that dont work

Reboot to recovery
Reboot to bootloader
Aeroplane mode (does not come out of it as i seen)

Ill get to fixing / removing these at a later date


Installing
==========

This Beta build is in NVflash format only, i could not be bothered yet
to create a CWM update file yet as its still to early for me to care
for that.. Just execute this in the normal fashion from windows.
Or extract it and do from linux for all you penguin lovers out there..


Recommendations
===============

Backup current files / data as this image will wipe it all


Devs
====

Cass -- VegaICS and some other stuff.
ejtagle -- Fantastic kernel work /core libs and sage like advice


Thanks
======

Paul O'Brien from Modaco for the Vega when mine went boom
Lareeth for his reboot to recovery app
Shaizer for his VegaICS splash screen
Others who provided splashscreens .. thanks too .. keep at it i may use them yet
DVTonder for his Advanced power menu code
MrDeadlocked for his fix to make DVTonders menu appear on our tabs
the3dman via MrDeadlocked for the 120dpi launcher fix
MrGuy for the info on Mic sound duplex fix
Wooshy1/Areo/scanno for the recovery image (no stale boot on most tabs)
brucelee666 for the random reboot fix, ueventd fix
Scanno for the touch recovery

The community for all the feedback and testing
Anyone else i spoke to i missed here (Sorry and a BIG THANK YOU)


Features
=======

Most of the large dirs in /system are now squashfs files, this is to save on space.
You need to use squashfs with gzip support if you are to play with them. Kernel must
also have squashfs support included.

The dir that contains WiFi firmware and kernel module has been relocated to /system/etc/misc/
this is to ensure of the minimum file size of any update we make to the kernel and provide to you.. It makes not difference as its linked back to its proper place.

tun.ko for vpn can be found in /system/etc/misc/ too, linked back to the proper place.

For all other libs you need to add, add them to /system/vendor/lib, they will be picked up.

Enjoy !!! Feedback welcome !!!

add those features, no time to do right now, will do later once 3G is
confirmed to work, i dont have it so cant test.

Slow sound in Skype, 48khz sound should fix it .. feedback required ..

Power menu options need fixed / removed

This is the news I've been waiting for
I'm quite satisfied with cm7 on my phone... but ics on the Vega is something I've been looking for the fact that someone has it booting is enough now I can stop searching and wait for a stable(ish) release
YouTube videos would be much apprieciated

For "alpha 1" a lot of stuff works! I imagine if we get as much work done as was on vegacomb this will turn out even better (we have the source, and LOTS of people working on ICS for all sorts of devices) honeycomb was a bit specialist, but every device is getting an ICS port, even my hero, knowledge can be shared!

alpha 2 works amazingly well, i cant believe its alpha still, its more than good enough to be a beta build now. next build will be worth jumping on for many users and help with bug fixing and reporting. already alpha 2 is quicker than viewcomb.

Yeah were working on that. Not an easy fix :-( apparently there is an app that workaround it.. Screenlock or similar from mktplace.
