Android 4.0.4 ICS on the Arnova 10 G2 testing kernel and firmware (alpha)


The Arnova 10 G2 has been left without Android system update and hasn’t evolved from Android 2.3 Gingerbread. By chance, Arnova recently released the kernel source code for some of their tablets (thanks HaroldG). Based on this source code, we have built a Linux Kernel that let the Arnova 10 G2 run Android 4.04 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS).

Our current test firmware is a proof of concept, we have a kernel that properly boots the device, but only few components are working so far:
– screen: working
– sound: working
– USB host: working (tested with mouse)
– touchscreen: partially working
– acceleremoter: half working (axis problems)
– camera: half working (inverted on y axis)
– wifi: not working

As you can guess, it’s still a long way to get everything working and there is no certitude we will ever succeed in making a stable Android 4 ICS on the Arnova 10 G2.
No need to ask for a release date for the files, a test firmware will be published when it’s ready.

  1. Hello,
    Have a 10 G2 8 Gb ( for 6 months + ) thats been os upgraded and works pretty well. Only problem is it keeps losing loaded/stored programs such as OfficeSuite Pro and firefox. ( Fix is to Press the reset and they re-load ) Battrey life 4-5 hours continous use. I really like the feel of the unit and size and it has proved good value for money. 32 Gb micro sd used for storage and I really like the full USB which allows use of memory sticks on the go. Compared to an ipad which has limited conectivity and of course Apple only applications / software it v good. (Started my computer life in 1978 with a Commodore PET – so loads of gear still working !! ) Higgi.

  2. Looks very promising :p

    I think with enough compassion and support this will be a great project to look forward.
    I’v seen many devices porting ics to older devices so I’m pretty sure that these good devs will succeed 🙂

    Its a long way ahead but I’m very happy to see that our precious 10 G2 still gets attention 🙂

    Thanks to all the developers
