Installation instructions

You will need a computer and a working ADB connection to the custom firmware images as the Arnova 7cG2 does not ship with a accessible recovery.

These firmwares are specific to the Arnova 7c G2 and should not be installed on other devices.

WE WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR DEVICE.

FIRMWARE UPDATES ARE USED AT YOUR OWN RISK.

You will find all installation instructions from setialpha in our forum.
The following video demonstrates the installation procedure.
