    Hello, Forgive me but im new to tablets.

    I was given a Viewsonic Gtablet as a gift that was loaded with Honeycomb Flashback 5.5

    As far as I could tell it was a 1.2

    I wanted to put vegan gingerbread OS on the tablet so I could use flash as Honeycomb would not allow this.

    I installed CWM and factory reset the tablet

    Now it wont load past hte Honeycomb 3.0 screen

    Alternatively when I push the power and volume + button I get the Viewsonic 3 birds and a message "Recovery key detected Boothing recovery kernel image" but it never goes in the CWM or any recovery mode (also It would not go into recovery mode before the factory data reset)

    I honestly do not know what to do as I am a noob

    Please help!!!

    Recovery instruction
    for G tablet
    This is in an update.zip format. Extract the rar to the root of your internal memory, so that you have a recovery folder and an update.zip. You'll need the apk folder only if you wish to install the Terminal Emulator via a sideload.

    Run either standard or clockworkmod recovery and install the same way you would install any ROM. Again, this is only a small set to tools, not a full ROM!

    Wait until display
    when display menu
    select update zip or factory data reset
    TnT 1.2-4349 recovery ROM, dated 03/25 and supplied by Viewsonic / TnT. Link: http://tapntap.http....2-4349-user.zip
    md5sum: 2a58fbfb90ed7140144bb6a93e10f4e6

    These were grabbed from my over-the-air update. They are full recovery images that wipes everything except the user data.

    NOTE: This post is ONLY for 1.2-based stock ROMs. For 1.0.1 or 1.1 based stock ROMs, please see this link for details: http://forum.xda-dev...ad.php?t=842000

    ===================================


    Instructions for use with the internal memory, and if you are on a 1.2 ROM already:

    1- Mount your device to your PC

    2- Download the ROM you wish you use, and save it to the root of the mounted drive. Rename it to "update.zip".

    3- Shutdown the device and then boot into recovery (Hold Power button and volume up key for a few seconds). If you are using standard recovery, you will see a menu with several options -- you should choose "Apply Internal update.zip" and run it. It should take 1-2 minutes to complete and should reboot automatically.


    ===================================

    Instructions for use with the internal memory, and if you are flashing from 1.1-3588 stock:

    1- Ensure that you are on 3588 stock, including stock recovery (NO clockworkmod!!!)

    1- Mount your device to your PC

    2- Download the 1.2-based ROM you wish you use, and save it to the root of the mounted drive. Rename it to "update.zip".

    (required for build 3588)

    3- Create a folder on your mounted drive called "recovery".

    4- In that recovery folder, create a file called "command", and add this line to that file, and save it (EXACTLY as written below):


    --update_package=SDCARD:/update.zip

    NOTE
    to Windows users: If you use notepad, it might name the file "command.txt". That won't work. It cannot have a file extension. I would recommend downloading and using the excellent program "notepad++" as a notepad replacement.

    5- Shutdown the device and then boot into recovery (Hold Power button and volume up key for a few seconds). Since you are using standard recovery, the update should run automatically and reboot, when completed.

    6- If the reboot hangs at the TapnTap screen, you might need a data wipe. To do that, reboot into recovery manually again, and choose the "wipe data / factory reset" option. Then, reboot again when that is completed.

    No problem. The 1.1 ones will stay on XDA, but the 1.2 ones (and assuming there will be more) will be here. Right now I've cross-linked to both and I PM'd the two XDA moderators if that was OK. I'm going to assume that silence is golden.

    I've also requested to activate links to Century Eyes and Mountain Laurel when they go live, and again I will assume that if they don't respond that silence is golden. I've actually PM'd them a few times this week and haven't gotten a response (not sure if that was on purpose or not, but if they are ignoring me then they aren't being very objective).

    I ran into an issue when I was trying to run down my battery to get the 100% charge back when charging. In any case I had to use the 1.2 base recovery to do wipe. So you know this seemed to softbrick. So I had to use the recovery to use the update.zip already on my tab this was not the 1.2 base. Then I got the 1.1 Base 3588 OTA update. Can I replace my current 1.1 base update zip with this file. So if I need to redo my update I can get back to the 1.2 base?
