I am new to this tablet. I have 2 questions.
1) how to know if you have capacitive touch screen version.
2)Is it work to flash or are there too many issues with custom firmware.
this forum is dead for this device huh?
Hi there, I did the update and the tablet seems to work fine when the power is plugged in, the problem is that when you unplug the power lead, the screen freezes and its stuck on Arnova screen, its only goes away when you plug in the power.
How can you fix this issue?
I have installed this and updated the start up issue and every thing works fine other than my home key does not work any one have any ideas
ive downloaded and installed the update. the operation was good but the screen isn’t responding to touch. what could i do
update would be nice…one that allows chrome browser to work.
Hi. I am Agustin from Argentina. Got one in spain earlier this year. Was able to get the GApps Package with Google Market with no ROM change.
I am actually looking forwards to some custom jellybeans firmware so i could get chrome running, plus some nice features (included in the ones availble here with PIP!
The thing is, since the tablets battery aint that good i want to be able to turn it on on-the-go with no need of charger.
so, in the meanwhile
ill need to have root acces to stock firmware android 4.0.3 in orther to either edit “/data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf” or change name of “sys/bin/wpa_supplicant” and get “wpa_supplicant_xoom_wifi_adhoc-1.zip” working
(found here: https://docs.google.com/viewer?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.arctablet.com%2Fblog%2Fwp-content%2Fforum-file-uploads%2Fadmin%2F2012%2F06%2Fwpa_supplicant_xoom_wifi_adhoc-1.zip).
Might adb help me from Windows PC to get access to these protected area and replace what i need to?
Is the only way to root the tablet?
Is there anyway to do this without changing its ROM?
In my case, ive got rockchip so i guess i can make an image of my actual firmware and flash it back if needed (?)
Hope my questions help others too
i used a root script,root with restore by bin4ry.worked great first time with no troubles…dead easy.
In the UK – where csn I take my tablet to get fixed?
I have treid all the solutions above, many, many times.
My tablet is fucked.
All I get is Arnovaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa……
Any options other than binning it?
How did you upgrade yours, I was going tontry upgrading using the sd card
SR. ADMIN I NEED HELP … INSTALL THE FIRMWARE AND NOT INSTALL AND ALL OK … REBOOT WHEN SCREEN AND BECAME STUCK “ARNOVA” AND THAT ACER AND PROBE WITH CONNECT USB CABLE AND CONNECT THE CHARGER AND NOTHING WILL NOT START SCREEN IS STUCK AYUDDA NEED PLEASE … THANK YOU …
Hi great firmware any chance of an update or just the start up fix update please it would really be welcomed by so many here.
It seems that the 10b g3 has now been forgotten about as Arnova have released new ones. When I replace mine I will not purchase arnova again
Totally agree, could have kept it stock, but no play store was a big issue. You get what you pay for I suppose. So Samsung or Google is next in line, more mainstream I suppose, more money of course, but hey!
salut a tous tout nouveau par ici l’ambiance à l’air bien sumpa
j’ai un gros problème ma tablette ne démarre pas comme sité plus haut au dexième arnova je branche mais rien ne ce passe! quand rebanche au port usb mon pc ne reconnais pas le périphérique est-il possible de revenir en arrière pour reprendre la version précédente du firmware? et sachant que même le programme rock chip ne reconnais pas non plus la tablette! aïe aïe je craint que les réponse ne soient pas celle que j’attend merci par avance
hello to all new atmosphere here to look good sumpa
I have a big problem my tablet does not start as high diversity arnova I connect to in the second but nothing is happening! when rebanche port usb my pc does not recognize the device is it possible to go back and resume the previous firmware version? and knowing that even rock chip program does not recognize either the tablet! ouch ouch I fear that the answer will not be the one I expected thank you in advance
sorry if my english is not good
petite pécision dans gestion des périphérique quand je regarde l’état du pilote il est indiqué que le périphérique ne peut pas démarré!
Merci Sra93, désoler mais je ne parle pas anglais =/
je voudrais savoir comment on accède a la racine de la tablette quand je branche je vois juste ma carte sd et la mémoire de 500 mo =/
Thank you Sra93, to sadden but I do not speak English =/
I would want to know how we accede has the root of the tablet when I branch I just see my card(map) sd and the 500 Mb memory =/
Ce ne sert à rien google trad !!
Pour accéder à la racine de la tablette , tu dois etre root (c’est le cas avec cette rom) et tu dois avoir un explorateur root (es file explorer le fait bien ! et c’est en francais) via es tu fais explorateur root et tu autorise puis tu as accès à / !
Es-ce que tu as un problème avec la précision de l’ecran ?

Il y a une autre solution pour fixer ce problème (mcsgeek nous l’explique)
there is an another solution to fix this problem (mcsgeek explains)
Thanks for your superb ROM & explication !
I know there is no calibration screen, but is there an alternative?
another application or the original ?
(Sorry for my english , i’m french !)
Hi sounds a superb solution but can anyone tell me if it this firmware will work on the Arnova 10D G3 ?
It wont work the Arnova 10d G3 has a different hardware. Please check the Arnova 10d G3 section in our forum.
can somebody help me i have done the update but it freezes on the arnova screen and i tried to plug on my pc, reset and more… can someone plz help me preverence also by email plz
Has the power issue been updated yet
Hi admin any chance of start up fix firmware update ?
Not really up to the fix provided here
hi i have flashed my arnova 10b g3 eventually and found it to be working sound apart from same issue with boot up procedure but can anyone explain this as i an a bit of a noob …….full ext4 file system on cache, data and system partitions
/system partition fully writable …..extended space for application (/data) to 2 GB and is this meant to be 2 gb of ram ?
hi all, having a nightmare here, tried putting the firmware in the root menu, restarted my 10b 3g, look like it was all good gave me a message update found, clicked yes, now its just stuck on the arnova screen, ive tried pressing the vol + while pin in reset but never seems to work, ive also tried hnolding power and vol +, can get a dead drion on screen but nothing else, when i try to connect to pc i get mtp error, is there any advice you guys can offer? only had the thing a couple days really annoying
Having the same issue. You ever figure anything out?
Very good job, this firmware is awesome.
2 issues left:
1- necessity to be plugged on AC to start, it is a known issue. Any idea if it is going to be solved?
2- file explorer does not work. Any solution?
Tks again for this FW.
There’s a fix for issue #1, please check our forum.
We’ll integrate it in our next custom firmware update, to be released later, as time permits.
Can you please point us to the solution for issue #1, can’t find it in forum.
Found it: http://www.arctablet.com/blog/forum/arnova-10b-g3/arnova-10b-g3-custom-firmware-android-4-1-jb-root-more-space-apps-pip-video-player/page-9/
Now i have to understand how to overwrite the file…
Hey there. Did you find out how to rewrite the file? If you did I will like to know. Thanks!
Download any file manager W root access, select either copy or move over the service.jar file from the zip, then go to the other file at system/framework/service.jar and select to copy or move it. The app will notify that a file with that name already exist. Now here is your decision, either overwrite it or wathever u decide. But let me tell you in my particular case it didn’t go well, so I had to rescue it by selecting the nown “recovery boot”. All I can say is good luck!
so if my tablet is not rooted and i want to keep stock firmware for the charger related issue, which way should i go?
Good news! Tks a lot.
I am close to the end. I have been looking for adb drivers for Arnova 10b g3 working with JB. The ones I found work with almost every tablet but not mine
Any clue for me?
Tks for your daily amazing job.
I forgot drivers for Windows 7
Has the power fix been done yet
Get any other file manager like astro. If you want the pro ver. get it fro black mart alfa. This is what I did.
when trying to enter a recovery mode, you MUST release a power button FIRST, then vol+.
Arnova 10b g3 8 Gb
Thank you wery much for your time, great job and support!
Me had to go back to fully working kasty 0.42 firmware. Just does the job.
Any chance to us to get nice and clean working JB firmware? Latest custom one still does not do anything without charger plugged in…. unfortunately.
But… the hope dies last anyway
Does this work for the Arnova 10c G3, I tried and can’t seem to get into flash/recovery mode, All I get is the android mascot with his belly flop open. Are there diffrent buttom combinations for the 10c G3
This is specific for the 10b G3 and Rockchip based tablets, it probably doesn’t work on the 10c G3. Please check our Arnova 10c G3 forum for details on flashing your tablet.
hi it is compitable with the archos carbon can i flash it ?
Nope it won’t work, the Carbon has a different kernel/hardware.
hi i have done this to two arnova 10bg3 tablets and they work great but have noticed games like angry birds and some others will let you download on google play but they wont open when you try to play them and another big question about these tablets why is ther a anti ailising option that improves graphics on this tab in the settings but you cant select it try playing top gear on your tablet it cant handle it maybe this option can help if it were unlocked on the settings give for a better gameing experience just a question
Please have a look in our forum for a possible solution for the Angry Birds problem:
guys please help ?!
i have broke my usb plug
and now without any usb connection (
can i upgrade my software to the one with battery indicator is correct ??
i have the one with no battery indicator
any help ?
the qustion is can i upgrade without a usb connection ?
I personally updated my tablet via sd card.
Did you have any problems doing this way
have the 10b g3 and i tried every reset trick described, but it stays on the “Arnova” screen -power cable in/out, usb in/out…. the rockchip doesn’t find the MTP device in Xp so i am at wits end….any hints to flash it somehow? Thanks !
hey guys ??
i have a 10bg3 tablet but unfortunately i broke my USB cable plug on the device
and i got on it the custom rom
and have some issue with battry level and touch screen !!
so i want to flash the stock rom but with no usb cable connection
how can i do that??
and it is ok if i flash the new one over here ??
but the main problem no usb connection
so any answers ??
Without USB connection I think you’re stuck, unfortunately ;(
but in the arc tools app u can do it inside the app
there is no possible way to do with it ?
Several times to reflash, nothing worked, at the start hanging logo and all. Problem solved so I pray the old firmware, insert the card with the new firmware has been updated, and then made a RESTORE Rockchip tool. And it worked!
Didn’t get much smoothness and responsiveness at all. Took to flash couple of hours (the instruction wasn’t clear enough). Standard explorer application crashes upon start. The tablet does not start without charger plugged in.
Waiting for solution.
Arnova 10b G3 8Gb.
Admin, i’ve got a question. Can you do Picture in picture with any video?
If you can please tell me. Thanks
Its ok I figured the way to fix the boot bug, just unplug everything from your tablet, then turn it on, after 20 seconds (approx.) plug in your charger, and your problem is solved.
P.s: Admin, you should thank charliedflea for saving my tablet. Sorry for the comment but I think you should improve your instructions for flashing a tablet.
Everyone, read charliedflea’s comment on top of admins instructions to get a successful flash
I am sorry if you had troubles flashing your tablet.
We are doing our best to provide proper firmwares and documentation, there are sometimes glitches and everybody is welcome to contribute and make it better thru comments in the article or in our forum.
Hey admin, you best get the boot crash problem fixed because I downloaded, did everything you said (the instructions weren’t clear enough…) and ended up with a failure. This is a total waste of time, don’t even bother trying to get this!
Hi guys, please help!
After updating the firmware (I did it via microSD, which now seems to have been a bad idea) I’ve got the stuck on boot problem. I haven’t been able to boot at all since despite trying the waiting to plug in power thing at all different intervals and since I can’t actually get into the OS I can’t downgrade or change the firmware. Very concerned it might be bricked, is there any other advice to help me at least boot up?
i kill my tablet, my tablet no funciona, que hago
I had nothing but problems to flash my 10b G3 using the Rockchip Flasher tool because the USB drivers were never recognized or installable on my Windows 7 Pro 64bits.
I’ve tried all the suggestions found on the forum, e.g. install XP 32bits driver, etc… with no results.
So I tried to put the update.img file from kasty_oma-arn10bg3-41-046-2G.zip directly on my SD card and, when I plugged the SD card on the tablet, I get the surprising message “We detected a new update on SD card, do you want to apply the update from /mnt/sd_external/update.img” !
I just clicked YES and after a reboot and 10 minutes of upgrade, I got my tablet with Android 4.1 JB, Google Play, Chrome, more space for apps and PIP video player !!!
So if you have a SD card, the easiest way to root your tablet is by doing a copy/paste, plug the card and select YES to upgrade
the boot problem (arnova screen froze) persist in this way?
I did as you suggested above (using an SD card to upgrade) and all was fine eventually. I got rather confused by the getting stuck on Arnova screen issue on boot up post upgrade. But once I had done the boot up as suggested in earlier posts with the power cable connected and charger on all was fine. I really like the end result, the performance is better and it is nice to have Chrome working. Would be a great tablet if the battery life was better, still you can have everything when you buy a cheap tablet.
Will this work on 10d G3 8 GB version?
It won’t, be there are a few tips for Arnova 10d G3 users in our forum.
colegas eu tenho um lazer an10b g3 parece igual oa arnova mas e de 8 gb posso istalar tambem
I have a question, because my Arnova 10b 8GB g3 only has 2 GB of memory. where the 6 gb missing?
sorry for my English
Where does it show 2 GB of memory ?
8GB storage memory = 2GB
It doesn’t work on my arnova 10B G3 capacitive model. I could install the ICS version without problem but this one gets stuck in the loading screen (arnova logo). I tried doing upgrade, restore but same result. I reinstalled many times. Please fix this !!
You must start your tablet by connecting to the electrical outlet. THIS is the only problem of this firmware.
I managed to install the jellybean firmware everything is great apart from this issue of not starting unless plugged in does anybody know if this is being worked on by anyone,it’s just that I move around a lot day to day and have to keep the charger with me otherwise its brilliant thanks to whoever done this hopefully a fix soon
DAS HAB ICH GEMERKT DAS IST DOCH BESCHEUERT WENN man sein Gerät
irgendwo mit hin nimmt ((((( minusss
DAS GERÄT BENÖTIGT 20 Minuten zum Starten wird heiß und schließlich flackert der Bildschirm und das gerät wird heiß hab jetzt ICS installiert das ist wenigsten zuverlässig und ich kann es mit zur schule nehmen
HELP!!! My tablet is still stuck on Arnova!!! I kept it plugged in to the charger and its been nearly 30 mins. and nothing is happening! Please reply! Thanks
hey guys ok here is the correct way to enter flash mode on arnova 10b g3 i have 8gb version it works 100% every time for me.
1. plug in power chord both ends. plug in usb, to pc and tablet,
2. with the tablet on (or were ever it crashes at if it crashes….poke in the reset button first keep it held in then a second later press and hold vol + button keep these both help in for 15 seconds. DO NOT RELEASE YET
3 Release the reset button ONLY do NOT release volume!!!
4. keep volume button pressed in till it finishes installing driver or till it gives you driver install error (i was on win 7 32 bit eddition) *you are not in flash/ recovary mode
5 upon error or even upon succesfull install of driver go to device manager and reinstall the driver that came with the rockchip flasher!
6. if all done succsessfull in the flasher software you should see ya device in dreen saying 1 you are now ready to flash.
now about this software if admin could help me id appriciate it…
first off i have flashed my device a couple of times with same result all succsessfull flash but… upon load it appears to crash/freeze at the initial loadup were ARNOVA appears in white accross the screen (seeming like a bad flash) with the power chord plugged in if you wait a little while *still on this screen and hold the standby/power button it actually jumps into the software and says would you like to shut down if you chose cancel you can continue using software/ device as normal. however upon reboot it still does the same thing again and freezes and you need to repeat the process. the problem with this is if you tyy this shutdown mrthod to access device with out the power chord it just does not work! and stays frozen on arnova screen,
also it maybe worth noting that initially i did not have an sd card installed.
and the hdd although its 8 gb was showing as only 1.6 free and for somreason when you used an exporer on the device the folder labled sd was actually internal memory not the actual micro sd when i bought one.
i hope this is usfull to the admins or anyone else if i can’t be help.
p.s i also went from stock firmware straight to this one.
Recovery mode is not easy to obtain follow this instruction exactly :
You first need to push the reset, holding it for a few seconds then press the VOL+ button while holding the reset for a few seconds, then release the VOL+ button and the reset.
Appuyer d’abord RESET et maintenir quelque secondes, puis Vol+ pendant le maintient de Reset quelque secondes, puis relacher VOL+ et Reset.
after successful install it freezes on the arnova screen and nothing happens…. any solutions?
Please have a look in our forum, Arnova 10b G3 section.
I’m trying to root the tablet, but when the tablet is in recovery mode my pc with Win7 doesn’t not recognize the device, so I cannot use the Rockchip…any suggestion?
I had the problem of thinking that my tablet was in recovery mode once the android and exclamation mark was showing on screen. The way I did it was to do the button combo to boot into recovery mode, nothing will show on screen to let you know if it booted into recovery mode successfully.
For some reason, my tablet wouldn’t boot into recovery with the power plug or USB plugged in. It did stay in recovery after I plugged USB and power plug back in though. Also. make sure that you are using the rockchip drivers that are in the folder. It will install as an RK29 device.
I tried windows 7 64 bit. Didn’t work. Then i used windows xp(32bit) and everything worked allright!
Hi, I’m quite new to this, however i experienced the same problem with windows 7, it was trying to install the drivers for N10BG, however kept failing (MTP?). I was able to get around this by holding the reset button in whilst connected to the usb cable for 5-10 seconds, until a message appear saying the device connected had failed or malfunctioned. I was then able to install the drivers from the rockchip driver folder (1.5) I believe and was then able to flash the device. Until i did this, the rockchip device would not recognise that the arnova 10b g3 was connected.
Hope this helps
This seems to be the problem many people facing, If you shutdown and start your tablet on battery, it gets stuck on the ARNOVA screen for very long time, maybe indefinitely, solution is to plug in the power adapter and it starts fine.
Surely someone will come out with a solution soon for this, Thanks for all your hard work!
Only problem after testing the new firmware is with restarting the tablet on accu:
It seems that you can only shutdown your tablet while connected to the poweradapter.
Otherwise the tablet won’t restart when you hit the power-on button (it will stick on the “ARNOVA” screen). Powerindicator& other content of the firmware seems to be flawless and is working now! Good work!
Still it would be nice to have the possiblity to shutdown/restart your tablet while on accujuice…Hope you’ll find a way to fix this problem. Keep up the good works folks!
I had the same problem.It stuck at the ANOVA screen. For me the solution was to reset with a reset while connected to the poweradapter instead of on battery.
The same problem over here. My arnova stays on the “ARNOVA”screen and won’t start. My device is useless now ! I used the”restore”option and flashed again. No problems were detected but t simply won’t start. Please help.
The new firmware correct battery indicator, but now we have less memory to Run application. Startup depend power supply plug.
Then I decide to back to the previously firmware.
You can test with the game “Contact Killer 2″ available on GooglePlay.
can i use arctool, as rockchip doesn’t want to work for me
This firmware is made to work with Rockchip Batch tool only, Arctools can’t technically work with it, sorry.
how long does it take to install version 0.46? my arnova 10b g3 is sticking on the “arnova” startupscreen of 5 min. or so (several times)
The first boot takes longer, problem like 3 minutes on the Arnova logo before Android system shows up.
You may need to reflash, please make sure you use Restore button in Rockchip Batch Tool.
hello, put your cable charger in an try it.
sorry for my english…..
hi. need the original firmware Arnova 10b3g. where it is available?
Hi, I have a Arnova 10B G3, and I tried pressing the vol+ and reset together for like 10 times so far but my tablet is not going to flashing mode. After removing the pin, it just reboots normally. Because of this I don’t receive this ” the computer should now show it has found a new USB device and prompt for a device driver. ” in the steps mentioned to flash the image file following article “Flashing your Arnova G2, Arnova G3, Rockchip RK29xx/RK30xx based tablet with Rockchip flashing tool”. Basically I can’t flash it because Rockchip flashing tool won’t see it as connected device. Any help most appreciated! cheers!-N
Hi just to let you know.
I am having exactly the same problem too.
+1 cant get into flashing mode
Awesome! The tablet is sooooo much cooler now. The battery thing is annoying but I can live with it for all of the things that are better now. And I can use my netflix now as well. Thanks!
I’m having a problem with the battery after updating to this firmware, it gets stuck to 1% and cannot use the tablet without cable plugged in. What can i do ?
Incorrect reading of the battery level is a bug in this custom firmware, we hope to fix it soon.
will this works on a 8 gig version too.
