Hi all,

 

This question is for a stock 10 G2 8gb,

I did the gerry install following his video instructions, I didn't have to do any extras such as clean cache, it just worked.... But my question is, Does everyone see such a small amount of apps, games, ect....

I tried to do a search (which I know is available on the Market) for BTFON, but I get the same reply "not found", but it is available because you can search for it on a p.c. at https://market.android.com.

Also books are no longer able to be read on the market because you now have to download a new market reader but unfortunately it's not compatible with the 10g2, and probably all other arnova's as well.

Any replies would be much appreciated..... I have waited a number of weeks before putting up this post in case someone might have said give it time to update.

cheers chaps..

Most of the time, the Market fix procedure can help recovering some of the missing apps in Google Play / Android Market.

Still, Gerry's way of installing the Market is not optimal and installing a custom firmware always gives the best results.

Hi sadsack

 

If that dosen't work, try logging into the market using your tablets browser and choose any app to download.

It should then recognise your device.

Reboot and then go into the market app. It worked for me.

I don't seem to have a problem logging into the "market" it's just that there's hardly anything available to download, either free or paid for.  (or do you mean to not use the "market" icon but instead to use dolphin browser to access "market")?

 

Yes I thought of using a custom firmware, but the amount of chaps with bricked units have a tendency to put me off..... although I did do the Arnova firmware update (not custom) and that seemed to go without a glitch, and that was on two 10g2's.

 

Thanks for all replies chaps, as always I appreciate any help given.

Use dolphin browser to log into the market.

Had a go today chaps,

no problem logging in using dolphin,.... So I thought I would try to install something that wouldn't cause a headache, "youtube" let's be honest all it needs is internet access, how lucky was I when I was met with the "This is not compatible with your device".

 

Under "Choose device on which to install" there is only one listed, obviously, so I chose "Unknown AN10G2 ?"  and that's when you get "This is not compatible with your device".

 

and on the left under the youtube icon on google play page, there is a light yellow box with a blue warning triangle that states "This app is incompatible with your Unknown AN10G2.

 

So I decided to go directly to youtube and see if they are correct, well I just watched a video "installing Arnova 10 custom android 2.2 froyo firmware" so I can see how youtube doesn't work.....

Sorry about the dark humor....

What would be nice is to be able to adjust the quality settings. But then is that what the app is supposed to be for.... I'm not sure seeing as I'm not allowed to install it.

thanks for the replies chaps.

p.s.

yes there are more apps available directly through dolphin, just a pity I can't install anything that's worthwhile using.

Sorry for my noobness, globula_neagra,

but are there any that you could possibly recommend, I'd like to get youtube HD working, also BBC i player, .... I may also have a go at the "Market" fix as well just to see what happens.

I also had a thought about using the arctools method to update with custom firmware and have market that way, but to be honest, a working tablet out ways the idea of a bricked unit just to get market working.

 

Also While scouting about I came across this fix for youtube but I think it may only be for phones and not tablets?? http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1529715

and the custom firmware I was looking at was this one, http://www.arctablet.com/blog/featured/installing-android-market-arnova-10-g2-ez-custom-firmware/

which seems like a good way to go, (well, it look's easier,)..... but there still seems to be some chaps who end up with bricked/ semi/bricked units afterwards.

Which tends to make me think that it may not necessarily be the fault of the firmware or installer but maybe the actual tablets that are being flashed. I.E. some built better than others.. jmho.

thanks for replies chaps...
