    Depending on the ROM there are different ways to install.

    a) Flash through NVidia Flash Recovery:
    This is the usual way to flash a Stock ROM (official updates from Viewsonic, Advent, POV,...). The NVidia Flash Recovery is a hidden recovery utility that is not touched when you flash a ROM. Not sure, but it might be inside the micro-controller. Anyway it cannot be overwritten, and this makes these tablets unbrickable. The NVidia Flash Recovery mode is started with the back button, power button, back button combination. The tablet must be connected to the PC/laptop with the USB cable, then the batch file of the update is started and the tablet is flashed.

    b) Flash with a Windows/Linux/MAC batch file.
    This is available with some custom ROMs, but most of the actual ROMs don't support this anymore. To this kind of flashing your tablet is running, Debugging must be enabled (Settings->Applications->Development->USB debugging checked. The device must be connected to the PC/laptop/Mac by USB, then the batch file coming with the custom ROM is started and the tablet is flashed.

    c) Flash with CWM recovery.
    This is the most used solution for custom ROMs now. You need to install the ClockworkMod recovery on the tablet => [mod] Clockwork recovery 3.0.2.8 [easy install] v3 . Then the custom ROM zip file is copied onto your SD card. You must not unzip the ROM file. copy the complete zip file unchanged to the SDcard. The tablet must be booted into CWM recovery mode and then the ROM is flashed from there. The CWM recovery mode is a kind of program/miniOS that runs on the tablet and gives you options to format your SDcard, wipe data or cache, make backups and restore them and of course to install ROMs or applications from the SDcard.

    Hope this explanation helps a little bit.

    A small tutorial that I wrote can be found on my homepage in the Tips&Tricks section --> Advent Vega ? Steps to flash a new ROM

    Hi
    Market is not available for it but you can use alternative apps like:

    SlideMe marketplace, ApkShare, Share App and 1Mobile Market.

    You can try the software updater. If it doesn't work, then install the drivers and adb. You also need to install clockwork recovery on you tablet. Remember to wipe cache/dalvik/data in recovery.

    Hi
    1) It's easy to reinstall stock rom for your viewsonic 10s by following instructions in post 62 above. You need 'male to male' USB cable and follow steps on viewsonic website (posts 20 &62)
    2) You need to install 'adb wireless' from MARKET. You need root (z4root).
    3) Install Clockwork Recovery by using steps in post 54
    4) Install VegaComb 1.6 using steps in post 111
    (NB: Substitute vegacomb 1.6 zip for cm7 in steps 1 & 12. Omit step 13 as you don't need gapps zip).

    Cheers

    I Got the USB Cable A to A (male to male), And I put it on Recovery Mode (as seen on viewpad 10s firmware update.pdf guide), the problem is that my laptops do not recognize the tablet and i cannot install the driver since it is not seen as APX in the Device Manager, Im stuck on Black Screen for two days now and i dont know what to do.

    And on Device Manager It is on Universal Serial Bus Controllers, seen as "Unknown Device". So when I try to install software it just tells me that it has the best controlled installed or something like, my windows is in mexican spanish tho...

    So Black screen means BRICKED forever? Should I get a bunch of papers or make a pile of them to use the tablet over them?

    Please HELP ME !!!

    Hi Dastan

    DO NOT WORRY!!. Your Viewsonic is not a paper weight. Follow the instructions below. Try instruction A first ( You said there is an unknown device under Universal Serial Bus Controller in device manager)
    *Download 'viewpad 10s firmware update.zip' and 'viewpad 10s USB driver.zip' from this website : ViewSonic - Knowledge Base and save them in a folder on your desktop

    INSTALL USB DRIVER FOR 10s
    A)
    1) right click 'Unknown device'
    2) click 'update driver software'
    3) click 'browse computer for driver software'
    4) browse and locate 'viewpad 10s USB driver.zip' downloaded earlier.
    5) Once you have located the USB driver on your computer, click 'next'
    6) click 'install this driver software anyway'
    7)After successfully installing the driver, you will see 'NVIDIA USB Boot-recovery driver for Mobile devices' under Universal Serial Bus controllers in device manager.


    INSTALL 10s FIRMWARE UPDATE
    B)
    1) Download 'viewpad 10s firmware update.zip' and 'viewpad 10s USB driver.zip' from this website : ViewSonic - Knowledge Base and save them in a folder on your desktop
    2) Download and install 'viewpad 10s fimware update pdf' ( instructions for firmware update) from website above
    3)Connect your 10s to a power source (wall socket)
    4) Use male to male USB cable to connect 10s to your computer
    5) press back button for 1s (do not release it)
    6) press power button for 1s (without releasing back button)
    7) release power button (whilst still pressing back button)
    8) device manager SHOULD refresh, and you will see 'NVIDIA USB Boot recovery driver' under universal serial bus controllers
    9) release back button
    10) if you do not see NVIDIA USB Boot-recovery driver in step 8 above, then repeat steps 5 to 9 a few times till you see the NVIDIA USB driver
    11) then locate viewpad 10s firmware update.zip downloaded earlier (in a folder on your desktop). Click on it and let it install. Follow on screen instruction after installation is complete.
    12) reboot your device (press power button to restart it)
    13 viewpad 10s reboots successfully.
    14) end

    This procedure never fails unless the 10s has hardware fault.

    You can install custom ROM vegacomb 1.6 as in post 111 above. Some people install vegacomb via 'software updater' under 'setting' in 10s. Vegacomb 1.6 should be installed on your sd card first. Just locate it and install. Sorry, i should have posted this step-by-step instructions earlier, as requested by you.

    Cheers
