Edit 2011/11/15: The firmware has been updated, please check release notes for details.

Thanks to the amazing work of  fun_ (aka naobsd) from http://www.androtab.info, the CyanogenMod7 (CM7) port for Rockchip RK2818 equipped devices, such as the Archos 7 HTv2 has reached a milestone. The system starts to be usable with the accelerated video now working, we felt the firmware is ready for a first public release. This release is still a proof of concept to show the development progress and for users to test Android 2.3 on their Archos 7 HTv2. If you do not want to risk serious troubles restoring your usual firmware after running this early firmware, we recommend that you wait a few days until a more finalized version is released.

Features

This custom firmware brings Android 2.3.7 (Gingerbread) to your Archos 7 HT v2 tablet.
Additionnaly, you get other interesting features such as:
- root access
- Android Market thru ArcTools

Release notes

This custom firmware update is based on latest files from CM7 port by fun_
Release notes from the author (2011/11/15)

built with latest CM source. now 7.2.0-RC0.
"Screen-off animation" is disabled by default as workaround for "black screen on resume" issue. (if you changed this setting, please disable manually)
add initial support for hardware codecs. I'm not sure all supported codecs are enabled. please test & report about file URI, format detail, status, etc.

We modified the firmware so USB Host mode is disabled on boot.

Notes from previous release (2011/11/14)

it has "black screen on resume" issue so please disable "Screen-on/off animation" in CyanogenMod settings. (it may happen without USB... it happens when screen off but not in deep sleep)
EDIT: for now not well tested e.g. local file, other codecs, etc...

Important:
Please note that this firmware is valid only for Archos 7 HT v2 and will not work on Archos 7 HT v1. If you are not sure on which version you have, please check our Archos 7 HT v1/v2 page. If you have an Archos 7 HT v1 please visit our dedicated firmware page.

This custom firmware has no firmware update facility. You won't be able to flash another firmware by copying an update.img file to the root of the device. You will have to use Rockchip Flashing tool to flash a new firmware, please make sure that you are able to use this flashing tool before flashing this custom firmware.

Archos 7HTv2 CM7 preview firmware download

Firmware download: archos7htv2_cm7_20111115c.zip

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

To my knowledge there is currently no CM7 port for Arnova G2 models.
Still, the G2 models running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, having CM7 is not a priority. Regarding the Android Market on the Arnova 7G2, it's still in the works, will post an announce when ready.

Ismael Miguel,
It's hard to find the Zipy Fun specs on the web, appartently it is very similar to the
Acorp EM501R which runs on a Rockchip CPU. First need to confirm it really uses a RK2818 CPU and not an older one. Then get the device firmware to extract the boot, kernel ... to build a full firmware update with CM7.

sfinxx1,
The video is accelerated at the begining (when you see "10x time lapse" in the top right corner) during the firmware flashing and rebooting part which are quite long...
The rest of the video plays at normal speed. Actually, the tablet is not that reactive, as there are many delays when touching the screen. This can probably be improved a little by tweaking the CM7 settings.

First download the firmware you want to flash back.

If you have an Archos 7 HTv2: http://update.archos.com/ht/archos7ht/rk_2818/UpdateA7HTv2.zip

 

Then try the Rockchip flashing tool on your device.

/blog/archos-tablet/flashing-firmware-rockchip-cpu-based-devices-archos-ht-7-8-arnova-10/

 

There may be an easiest route thru the reboot menu / recovery option in Cyanogenmod7, but I am not sure it does actually work.

As shown on the video, device reset is done by sliding the power lock to the right position and pushing a paper clip in the reset pinhole on the device for a few seconds.
