- Now to enter into recovery mode. Plug the Vega to your pc with the USB connector, and the power socket as well, then powering the device down.
- Keeping the back button pressed, press the power button after 2 seconds and letting go of it after 2 more seconds. After 2 more seconds, let go of the back button you’ve been holding all this time.
- Incase you did this for the first time you’ll be prompted for a driver. Simply point it to the folder where you extracted the drivers. When you do so, a message will pop up saying, “This driver is currently not signed.” Nothing wrong here simply allow it to be installed and you’ll be good to go.
- Once the drivers are properly installed (unzip the files once downloaded), simply run ViewCOMB_3.2_Build_5.1_.exe and watch the magic happen!
Yup this simple! For further updates and queries related to this ROM, head over to the forum thread at XDA-Developers.
