Good day to everyone! :)

This is the most stable ROM that exists for ViewPad 10s. ViewCOMB 3.2 is based on VegaComb 3.2, including all updates. My idea was to adapt VegaComb for ViewPad 10S. I made few cosmetics changes on VegaComb, added some applications, and made some tweaks in kernel. All credits goes to the VegaComb developers. Thanks to Newbe5, Rebel1, Ejtagle, Corvus, Cass67 and all VegaComb developers.

Hi, thanx for this ROM

Is it safe to install it on my Viewpad which is running Vegacomb 8.1 ?
I mean can I do the install as described (pdf) like a original (android 2.2) Viewsonic factory tablet ?
No ModdedStock rom base needed before flashing to ViewComb ?

Thanx for preventing me from doing stupid actions ;) !

Hi!
It doesn't matter which is pre-installed rom. There's no need for modded stock, just follow instructions described in PDF file. :)

Nice custom build ;)
It´s nice to see people are still developing for the tablet since no update has been done for over a month.
Do you know if this version has a bit of improvement on bluetooth?

Thanks :)

Try to download the file again, then repeat the installation process.
