IFYOU ARE COMING FROM ANOTHER ROM OTHER THAN VEGAn-TAB GE RC1 YOU MUST WIPE DATA!- Use Titanium Backup or similar to save app data. HOWEVER do NOT restore any system app data…. ie. Wireless Settings, CMParts Setting, etc.
If you are running into any major issues after updating from GE RC1 then I suggest backing up your data with Titanium Backup which you should already have done and then from Clockwork mod WIPE DATA…. something in your data is causing the issue more than likely…. so when you restore, restore each item separately till you find the culprit.
Install this using CWM. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT VERSION DOWNLOAD FOR THE BOOTLOADER YOU CURRENTLY HAVE. If you are coming from VEGAn-TAB GE RC1 then you are MOST likely on 1.1. Check with your current rom developer or developers post to see what bootloader you are on. FLASHING THE WRONG BOOTLOADER VERSION WILL SOFT BRICK YOUR DEVICE. You will need to then follow one of the many How-To’s available for NVFLASHING back to stock or similar.
The Google apps have already been applied. Market WILL NOT SHOW in app drawer until you CONNECT TO A WIRELESS NETWORK. ONLY THE APPS THAT YOU CAN’T GET FROM THE MARKET ARE INSTALLED. Stuff like GMAIL, MAPS, etc. need installed through market. This way you will easily stay up to date on those apps. The market WORKS if it doesn’t for you then
1st try going into applications settings and selecting Market and “Force Stop” then “Clear Data” that’s it….. This allows the device to re-register itself to the the marketplace servers as an “official device” . DON’T do any of the OLD MARKET FIXES dealing with Framework Services etc. IF that fails you have probably restored something you shouldn’t data or app wise or not followed the directions correctly. I suggest backing up your data with Titanium Backup which you should already have done and then from Clockwork mod WIPE DATA…. something in your data is causing the issue more than likely…. so when you restore, restore each item separately till you find the culprit.
****The Latest Flash player from the market works. Latest google maps works download from the market. The Latest Netflix App works download from the market. ****
YOUTUBE APP v. 2.1.6 is preinstalled…. so far all updates to this available on the market currently break functionality with our Tablet and other devices…. DO NOT UPDATE FROM MARKET…. for now anyways.
Internal Memory is mapped to SDCard and external SD Card is mapped to SDCard2.
Quadrant = 3135 (THIS IS OVERCLOCKED TO 1.4GHZ WHICH YOU CAN SET IN THE VEGAN-TAB SETTINGS/PERFORMANCE OPTIONS MENU OF THE MAIN SETTINGS APP)
Nenamark1 = 43.4 fps

It could take up to 5 minutes to boot the first time as it is building the dalvik database and cache. Partition issues with certain devices should be fixed now.
Bug Reports can be done here in the forum for now… though I am working on http://vegantab.gojimi.com/bugtracker .
Installing any of the additional kernel modules:
visit pershoots blog and find the latest post about gtab/zpad kernel: http://droidbasement.com/db-blog/
find the following and download:
lib-2632.36.tar.gz (kernel modules)
To use one of the kernel modules:
Pull the one you want from lib-2632.43_gb.tar.gz (winrar can open this),
(if the folder modules doesn’t exist then first – adb shell mkdir /system/lib/modules)
adb push MODULE.ko /system/lib/modules/
adb shell chmod 644 /system/lib/modules/MODULE.ko
adb shell insmod /system/lib/modules/MODULE.ko
You can download gscript lite from the Market, and put the insmod line in there, and tap when you want to insert it and use its functionality. ie. insmod /system/lib/modules/cifs.ko
