The ARNOVA 10 G2 best-seller has been left with an outdated Android 2.3 Gingerbread, users have been hoping for months to get an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or more recent system, we even tried building an update on our own without much results so far. Finally, we got our hands on a new Android 4.03 ICS system and we are now preparing a custom firmware with Google Play Store and root for the Arnova 10 G2, no April fool :)

Our initial tests with this firmware reveal that the tablet performance is average, in par with the limited specs on the Arnova 10 G2: 512 MB RAM, RK2918 CPU. While it’s good to finally have an updated system, we feel that older Android 2.3 Gingerbread firmware was actually a little smoother for GUI and most operations.

Our custom firmware will feature the following:

  • root with latest SuperSU 1.25 (free version)
  • system default setup English
  • removed unnecessary applications
  • Google Play Store fixes so more application are visible/compatible


  • Support the project!

    Our custom ICS Arnova 10 G2 firmware should be released in the next few days. it will be published when it’s ready, no need to ask for ETAs.

    1. Hello, I’m french so sorry for my english … I just want to know if it is possible to meter Andoird 2.3. “3” on a Aronva 10G2 … some application to use the Google play?

    2. Great news. I had a G2 with gingerbread and used your video to get google play but I had to send it back cause it wouldn’t charge. They sent me a new one with ICS and can’t wait until you have this ready
