    vegabean was the best thing that ever happened for this tablet. cyanogen mod was no where near to providing an experience that vegabean does.

    I am sorry to ask this question a second time in this forum, but I just saw now that maybe here is the better place: What was the latest and best VegaBean working without external SD-card ? A download-link would be great also. Thanks in advance.

    Answer: Seems to be VegaBean-Beta3.0. Correct ?

    CM 10.1 works fine for me, maybe I donate a new Superhighmegaspeed SD-card. The Bluetooth and recallibration hazzle are the only annoying things with this rom. I'd never go back to previous versions of Android.

    @ pogo: I think ICS was the latest without SD scripts, but I lost the overview.

    VegaBean Beta 6, or the final RC work without any special partition on the SD card. They have scripts that use it if it is present, but get on OK without it.

    Personally, I prefer Beta 6. If you install lots of apps you might be able to make yourself more space by going in to Settings > Apps, and moving each app to the SD card (for the apps that allow it).

I have been looking into bringing CM10.2 (Android 4.3) to our device. But i am running into problems. Problems that we might be able to solve or not. Fact is that the CM team has stated that after CM10.1 there will be no more support for Tegra2 based devices.
    For this statement see: https://plus.google.com/+CyanogenMod/posts/8wcuSVkr7zR

    I hope there will be efforts to still support Tegra2 devices. If so i will try to make a CM10.2 version for our device.
    Perhaps together with other developers we might find a way.

    Regards,

    Scanno

    Yes,not only Xoom has it, but also Acer iconia A500/A501 has it. It is certainly possible to port it to the advent tegra tablet. The only thing that makes it harder is that the Advent tablet has only 512Mbytes of internal nand storage, we would need to entirely dedicate it to the system partition, and store user applications in the external SD card...

    4.4 on the Vega? THAT would be insane :-P

    i think that some of the version crave is all about marketing, as a user of many android's i can say that the new "HALO" feature equals "plague" more than a feature

    the Vega needs a stable and bare bones daily driver to run it in the ground the screen isn't the best, but still clones are sold with android 4.4 around here at local stores, you can grab them for 89-109 and they run Android 4.0 to 4.2

    I recently restored this device in to service for use as a Living-Room Controller (Music-to-Receiver via BlueTooth or from Sony Remote app (DLNA/Pandora/Slacker/FM), EcoBee Thermostat Control, HUE and Insteon Lighting Control, etc.). If you have no use for this tablet as a tablet, but wish it was stable enough to be a single-purpose (limited multi-purpose) controller of some kind, then here is what I recommend:

    I tried all ROMs again and ended up going all the way back to VegaCream RC2. It has no speaker pop-noise and is completely stable even without an SDCard. You should install "Advanced WiFi Lock Free" from play store to keep wifi always on, and I would also set the display to never sleep (just turn it off manually with either the power-button or any free "screen off" app). You should probably also install a very lightweight launcher (like a "Car Dock" app or something) and set it up for easy huge-icon access to the 6 or so apps you will ever use this device for.

    Here is a (currently) working DL link:

    Using an ext4 partition with CM10.1 or VegaBean made me too frustrated with often long hangs and stutters as the tablet tried to read and write to the SD card. Running VB with only a FAT32 partition on the SD card I need to be careful to choose just the apps I need, but I have plenty of space for YouTube, Google Play, Bubblesoft UPNP, MXPlayer and BBC iPlayer. These apps all let me move them to the SD Card, but without noticeable performance impact when I switch or start apps.

    VegaBean is Android 4.1, so Bubblesoft UPNP supports gapless music playback. (It doesn't on the older Android versions). The WiFi is pretty robust, and normally standby is pretty stable. It's good knowing that Bluetooth is there if I want to use it.

    Apex Launcher in VegaBean is nice. I've tried the version 2.X from the Play store (and paid for it), but have gone back to using the version that you bundled in the ROM, Scanno.

    Despite the goodness in VB, there are minor issues; these are the ones I noticed:
    Sometimes loosing the WiFi, requiring turning WiFi off and on again (installing Advanced WiFi Lock to avoid loosing WiFi seems to work well)
    Sometimes finding the tablet locked with a black screen after it has been sleeping (installing Advanced WiFi Lock seems to stop this too)
    HDMI output has black borders, and using HDMI out and BBC iPlayer at the same time causes a reboot (HoneyIce Chimera had perfect HDMI)
    Sometimes I get carried away and install too many apps and run out of space - any remaining trimming of default install size would be welcome

    So for me, the best future for Advent Vega ROMs would be a VegaBean refresh
    A stable KitKat would be a dream.

    Hi, Everyone, and especially Scanno and ejtagle. Is there any hope that some work is being done in the background and we may yet see an amazing update for the dear old Vega?
