Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) on the Arnova 10 G2, it's there, finally !
We have a improved an existing ICS firmware to add root, Google Play Store support, CWR Recovery, init.d like scripts, 2 GB storage space for apps and few bugs fixes to the Arnova 10 G2
.
Due to popular demand, even if work on this firmware is not completely finished we are now publishing a first release. Keep in mind that the Arnova 10 G2 has limited resources, 512 MB of RAM is a bit too low to offer perfectly smooth ICS operation, we recommend killing tasks frequently or using a task killer to help with slowdown situations.

Arnova 10 G2 ICS custom firmware features

  • clean installation of Google Play Store with additionnal fixes so more application are visible/compatible
  • root access with SuperSU 1.25 (free version) by XDA developer Chainfire
  • extended space for applications (/data) to 2 GB
  • updated busybox v1.21.0.git (2012-11-29)
  • Unix like init.d boot scripts support, more details on init.d scripts here
  • optional Clockworkmod Recovery (CWM) support, courtesy of fenice57, thank you !
  • Built-in ArcTools application for optional packages installation and Recovery reboot
  • Install procedure

    Before starting, please make sure you backup all your existing apps, data and files that are on your tablet as they will be erased during the flash process. Also make sure your device is connected to the power.

    We are publishing two versions of the custom firmware. The default one comes with stock recovery, there is another build with CWM Recovery (thanks fenice57)
    If you don't know what CWM is or don't need it, just use the stock version, which should fit most users.

    Step 1. Download

    Kasty custom firmware download (version 0.463)


    kasty-ez_arn10g2-40-0463-2G.zip

    (stock recovery version)

    kasty-ez_arn10g2-40-0463-CWM_2G.zip

    (CWM recovery version)

    This firmware is specific to the Arnova 10 G2 and should not be installed on other devices.

    WE WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO…

    First of all, I sincerely thank the ADMIN!

    After many tests came the long-awaited firmware for our beloved 10 G2!

    Of course it is still a little immature, but over time will improve and become a great firmware.

    If you have someone interested can tell you how to swap the internal memory with the SDCARD, so you can make better use of the size!

    Good firmware at all!

    A greeting.

    Hi.

    Thanks for this great and hard work.

    Sorry for my english...

     

    The performance of the tablet is acceptable.
    You can play Temple, for example.

    But the wifi disconnects every few minutes and reconnect.
    The contact sync fails on gmail account.
    Whatsapp does not sync contacts.
    Microsd card not recognized. Only when inserted hot.

    Thank you very much for the work and congratulations. The rom is very good.

    Honestly, from the first test of the rom done with the Admin, I have not had any of your problems!

    Within 20 days of testing I happened to have only 2 times disconnections.

    The problem of contacts and whatsapp I had already reported to the Admin, I was doing some tests but I also still without success, if I can publish it!

    As for the memory card, I've never had any problems in all versions tested before the exit ....

    I advise you to reflash the rom, surely you solve!

    P.S. For those who want to explain how I can swap the internal memory with the dell'SDCARD.

    Cheers!

    A big huge thanks to Devs for this!!

     

    Flashed it last night and everything seems to be good to go! I will keep testing this week and report any bugs I come accross. I didn't really notice any lag as compared to Finless either. Seems to run smooth and fast. Boot time is long, but that tablet has always done that, even on factory firmware.

     

    Thanks

    I am not begging anyone, but I spent some serious time getting this firmware to work and we are publishing this firmware so everybody is getting a major firmware update for free. I've received just one donation, please support us if you like the firmware, it helps pay the bills for our servers, bandwidth and buy new tablets to support. 

    Thank you.

    Nope, this is for the Arnova 10 G2 only, the 10b G2 has a slightly different hardware and the Kernel wouldn't work.

    hello.

    I restored the rom several times and always with the same result.
    I have two tablets in which I've tried and both give the same errors.

     

    The wifi disconnects often and randomly.
    The contacts do not synchronize.

    With these two failures is complicated work.

     

    I changed the micro-sd card and goes well.

     

    Thanks for everything and for the great work.

    Dear admin and any other devs who made this possible :)

    I really want to thank you for this firmware 

     

    After only 2 days of using my newborn tablet I've to say that I'm impressed!

    It was really worth the waiting and I'm glad that you made this possible :)

     

    But I've noticed a few things:

    after removing a USB stick my sd-card also disconnected sometimes

    had 2 automatic shutdowns (was installing some old apps but after uninstalling them it dint happen again so no prob :p)

     

    nevertheless this is an amazing job and I personally find it an art to port such new firmwares to old devices  like our 10g2 so In other words you're an artist :D

     

    When I get my allowance, there will certainly be a donation :)

    What do you mean when you say that you don't manage to connect it to the pc.
    Step by step what did you do ?
