Rooting my tablet and experiencing the different flavors of Android and tablet functionality has been a great thing. It has also been a highly valuable experience in learning how to fix shit when I mess things up. This past weekend I think I restored my tablet a total of 2 times. Since first getting it I have had to restore about 6 times. Why would I need to restore it you ask… Well let’s put it this way. When you dance with the big dogs you get bit. Right?!
So my “big dogs” was thinking I could flash and try every ROM there is with every program I wanted to try installed on the tablet. Seemed like a plausible idea. But then the software conflicts would start, and from there all would go to hell in a handbasket pretty fast. 😉 And also flashing from Vegan5 to Vegan7 to CM6 Beta to CM7 Final and then maybe even TNTLite4.4 might not have been the best idea to keep from having cache partition and other issues.
So after trying in vain to use restore ROM’s for both the GTab Vanilla and Clockwork Recovery 8 (with the accompanying pulling the microSD out and then putting back in to load the various update.zip files and recovery folders) and STILL getting bootloop errors, I did some closer reading on NV Flash. I had come across some tidbits on it, but chose other paths because it seemed a little daunting. As it turns out, it’s less daunting than all of that microSD work with various zip files and still getting a bootloop! So onward and upward to the how-to.
