Until we get some new awesome updated firmwares from our admin chiefs I thought I may share my current package with you guys with which I'm totally happy.
Now it may not work for all of you cos it seems that some people have problems with WiFi and JB4.1 but for all others that didnt have WiFi problems in the past this "custom" solution may just work fine.
I took JB4.1 package http://exelletor.arctablet.com/Firmware-ChildPad/AN7DG3-CP20121012OMA4.1.zip
Then I extracted firmware http://www.arctablet.com/blog/downloads/firmware/ArnovaChildPad/kasty-arnchilpadc-40-050g-2G.zip and took kernel.img and parameter file.
(how to extract files from firmware --> http://www.arctablet.com/blog/forum/archos-arnova-childpad/arnova-childpad7d-g3-capacitive-android-4-1-1-jb-custom-firmware/page-6/#p18003)
I replaced those 2 files in JB4.1 package with extracted ones.
Flashed and after initial settings you get your JB4.1 working. In my case in notification area jumped info that sd card is damaged and needs formatting. Do so.
After that you will have:
2GB free internal storage
500MB Nand Flash (virtual SD Card) storage
xxGB from your external SD Card if you have one
Having Nand Flash on your system you get native Android option "Move to SD Card" activated as System doesnt recognize your physical SD Card as such but this virtual one. You can always unmount this Nand FLash if you like and I assume that then those 500Mb go back to the rest of hidden available internal usage memory.
With 2.5Gb space you should have more than enough space for all your need and not leeching too much storage from internal memory (you need some left for running processes you know
Real treat you get when you install Link2SD app. If you made partitions on your external SD Card as instructed in app manual and then in settings from Link2SD put everything to automatic (automatic linking to external SD Card when new software installed) then you get even more available space as your external card gets used as storage for some app data. Some programs doesnt "like" to get moved to SD Card but Link2SD does this smart and then if not possible to move it to external SD Card it uses native Android function "Move to SD Card" and move data to "Sd Card" (Nand Flash virtual one) thus freeing some space from official internal storage space...
I have tons of apps installed and still have over 1Gb free space on internal storage while Nand Flash and my external SD CArd are also fairly used but have space for even more
