kasty-arnchilpadc-40-04 with that file

Filename looks incorrect Laugh

Did you take the link from post 19 : http://www.arctablet.com/assets/firmware/ArnovaChildPad/kasty-arnchilpadc-40-04-1G.zip ?

That's the 1Gb version.

Post 19(from admin):

My apologies, the custom firmware with 1 Gb space (instead of 512 Mb) for applications was published but only privately.

Here it is:

for the resistive ChildPad: kasty-arnchilpadr-40-041-1G.zip

for the capacitive ChildPad: kasty-arnchilpadc-40-04-1G.zip

Choose the right firmware for your tablet and flash it with Rockchip flasher.

Cheers.

We always remain a child in some ways :-)

But as it is very new to my kids and they don't get bored playing with it, I hardly get some time to play with it myself. Wink

I also doubt how much im going to be able to play with it, but atleast untill its ready for him, its mine, hmm my wife's..

It now have 300MB of programs games in it and still 700 mb free space.

It runs so much more smooth than with arnova preinstall on it.

This is just great

Again thanks,

I apologize for my ignorance, however, when I open the Child Pad (resistive) tablet in my file browser, it shows storage space of 2.05 GB, does this make any difference when installing the update image to get Google Play installed?

 

Thank you

The capacitive image has 1.96GB storage, so i'd say it's normal. Add to that 1GB for your apps partition, and whatever the backup image takes, plus all the things i don't know what Android uses space for, and you get the 4GB that's physically in it.

Installed the custom rom, but the only difference i've noticed is the boot loader and the google play store (and super su). Is there something I'm doing wrong as I installed one more app than what was on it before and then it said that i need to free up some more space. I thought the rom was supposed to give double the amount of user space for apps or did i misunderstand ?

Thanks

I downloaded the kasty-arnchilpadr-40-041-1G one as my childpad appears to be the resistive one.... (got it from post 19)

 

I wasnt sure if it was capacitive or resistive so tried using a pen lid to check for response on screen..It detected the movement so I deduced that it must be a resistive model ?? (although on the box was ref 502141 which makes it capacitive?)

 

Been playing around with it and still no joy im afraid....

 

If I download the capacitive one and try that will it brick the childpad ?

Ok, for anyone else who suffers the same problem as I did, don't upgrade with the image file.. Make sure you use the rockchip batch tool and all will work :)  Good luck, and make sure you back up your childpad first :)

Good to hear that you got it working

And no dont try to flash with image from capacitive if yours is resistive

easy to check if its one or the other. If you can get a reaction on the screen from the top of a pen then its not capacitive ;)
Or you can just check the serial number on the back, if i remember correctly then 512.17x is capacitive.

Enjoy it
