You can't use the Google page instructions, you need to follow the method in the OP to the letter.hello!
im not new to rooting / flashing roms. but i am new to fastboot / nvflash as i cannot get the error : to stop coming up. i am using Linux methods stated here, but the ./nvflash commands do nothing but say "no such file or directory"
this is the guide i am using...
Original Root method [LINUX ONLY] (Thanks Chandon) -- v909 ONLY!!! :
0955:7820 NVidia Corp.
./nvflash --bl bootloader.bin --getpartitiontable ptable.txt
./nvflash -r --read 8 system-orig.img
cp system-orig.img system.img
mount -o loop system.img system
cp su system/bin
chmod 4755 system/bin/su
cp Superuser.apk system/app
./nvflash -r --download 8 system.img
./nvflash -r --sync
- Download Linux nvflash package. (See Downloads)
- Extract the needed files into a directory and cd to that directory.
- Shut down your G-Slate and plug it into your computer via USB.
- Hold down both volume buttons and press the power button. The G-Slate will not appear to turn on, but it'll go into APX mode.
- Verify Linux recognizes APX mode:
- Linux needs root if you have not setup the udev rules:
- Run the following commands:
- Wait while 400 meg of data copies.
- Wait while it copies back.
- Sync the flash memory:
- Press the reset button under the sim cover to reboot.
I don't think there is any trick. Mine starts mirroring as soon as I plug the cable in. If you've troubleshooted the port, cable and adapter if you're using one, I'd try a reflash I guess.I cant get HDMI to work, is there a trick? I've tried on a Samsung and LG TV. The TV's sense theres a cable plugged in but no signal ever gets sent.
I had a heckuva time when I first installed CM9 (ICS) from a stock ROM. Follow the directions exactly and don't skip anything thinking you've already done it. In my case, I was not using the exact version of CWM recovery, causing it not to accept the zip update. I had already wiped the tablet so couldn't boot into it, and didn't get the recovery to "stick" so was doubly screwed. Ended up having to disconnect the battery and use super-top-secret flash mode to reinstall stock and start over from there. You might want to read through the CM9 thread because alot of questions like that have been covered.At least you were able to upgrade... I'm still trying
Ok well, I don't know what steps you are using to get the slate in recovery in xp, I know it is possible though cause I did it with my netbook a few weeks ago. As for not needing the pc for installing roms that can be done only with CM10, honeycomb didn't have the capabilities coded in as far as i know, for doing that. So even if you did flash the recovery and wanted to boot into it, as long as you are on honeycomb you'll need the pc for going through fastboot.Its been a while now. Kinda gave up cause i need camera but would like to update clockwork (think that's it or recovery program) so i don't have to use laptop. I have a windows XP laptop and can't get slate to bootup in recovery. I have tried just about everything, I want to update slate so i don't havento use a computer anymore to back up or install rom.
