|Arnova 7c G2 chefs setialpha, tremendo and DanielVd have been working on improving the tablet for some time, their awesome firmware modifications are now ready.
Here is the menu:

Both custom firmwares provide root, Android Market access and added functionality to the Arnova 7c G2.
The ClockworkMod Recovery (CWM) is a custom recovery that allows you to perform several advanced recovery, restoration, installation and maintenance operations on Arnova 7c G2.
You will need a computer and a working ADB connection to flash these firmware image for the first time 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.
