I'm hoping someone can help. I got the Arnova 8 G2 last week and promptly changed the firmware from the stock version supplied to the EZ custom firmware. All seemed fine initially except for a couple of minor glitches, but most things worked fine.
I left the tablet on charge overnight yesterday as i'd been having issues with the battery life since changing the firmware, but after i turned it on this morning it wouldn't load up to the home screen, merely cutting out and resetting itself, and going through this procedure again and again until i disconnected the charger. I managed to do the reset and + procedure to get into the setup files, but after i failed to reset it to factory settings, i tried to do a system recovery. Now that has completely screwed the tablet!!
When i plug the tablet in with the charger it starts with the Arnova screen, then goes to a message saying:
Recovery System v1.3.37
After this the screen flashes and it resets itself, looping through this procedure over and over. I only got further than this first line once, at which point it said "Error on Line 12" then "reboot to attempt recovery again" and then reset itself.
I can't even see the tablet via usb to reinstall the original firmware.
Any help welcomed.
Even if your tablet doesn't seem to work or connect to your computer thru USB, you should be able to flash your tablet again using Rockchip Flashing tool. http://www.arctablet.com/blog/featured/flashing-arnova-g2-rockchip-2918-rockchip-flashing-tool/

It just WILL NOT FLASH. Every time i plug in the pc via usb or via the mains, it goes through the recovery procedure to the point where it tells me it hasn't worked. It does this if i have the sd card in or sd card out.
Here's the process:
1. Tablet is connected to laptop via usb - however the laptop can't see the tablet, but it still powers it
2. System Recovery begins - dialogue is as follows:
Recovery system v1.3.37
Please KEEP your USB cable or DC-in connected
E: Can't format PAGECACHE:
E: Failure at line 12:
Recover failed, please reboot and recover again
After the above procedure has run the blue list of options appear at the top of the screen - As follows:
Android system recovery utility v1.3.37
Reboot system now
Update from SDCARD
Update from uDisk
When these options appear the screen is frozen on the first option - Reboot system now. I can't move up or down the menu with the + or - buttons. The only button that does anything is the one with 4 lines, which is the ok button and the tablet promptly reboots, only to go through the entire procedure again.
Any ideas anyone?
