    Hi, I need help desparately. Have viewsonic gtablet 1.2 with Clemsim Caulkin Froyo installed. Stuck on clockworkmod recovery. Can you provide step by step instructions on a fix.When tablet is turned on 3 birds come up with clockworkmod recovery image in corner then shows clockworkmod recovery.When I click on home to reboot system now three birds come on again, then back to clockworkmod recovery. PLEASE HELP.

    This began when I turned on and screen was neon lime green with icon gone and message popped up about VT Launcher and then pops came up with error messages for google, yahoo mail, titanium backup. Not being very computer savvy and afraid I might do more damage, I went into CWM and did restore and the just got stuck in recovery mode. I even tried to restore to factory and the same thing happens as above.

    I am so upset; I'm getting sick. Do I have to throw it away now? ANY HELP WOULD BE SO APPRECIATED. Any instuctions will need to be really step by step idiot proof. Thank you.

    Hi Nonna and welcome to Android Forums! :)

    So your gTab won't turn on at all normally? Sounds like the ROM is corrupt and will need to be re-flashed. If you still have the Clemsin Caulkin Froyo ROM on the SD card, then it's an easy fix. If not, explore the "All Things Root" section and find yourself a couple of ROMs you want to try (and any associated Google Apps or Gapps zips). Download and move them onto the microSD card with a PC, making sure they're not in any folder.

    I believe that your ROM is a 1.1 ROM... so any of the 1.1 ROMs will do.

    NOTE: It's VERY important to know the exact ROM you were on, so we know if you're on a 1.1 or a 1.2 bootloader. Trying to flash a 1.2 ROM with a 1.1 bootloader would be BAD. Trust me.

    When you have the ROM and Gapps (I would suggest several on the SD card in case the first one is bad or the gTab doesn;t like it), re-insert the card into the gTab and go into Recovery. Wipe data/factory reset and install the zip. Choose zip and select the ROM you want to try and let it load. Then reboot system and cross your fingers. The first boot-up will take a long time, so have a good charge on the battery (or have it plugged in) and be patient.

    If it fails to boot up to the Android Welcome screen in about 10 minutes, turn it off, go back into Recovery and repeat the process with another ROM.

    And please let us know if this fixes it. Hope this helps and it's nice to have you aboard :)
