Our custom Arnova 10 G2 firmware has been updated and now offers the following nice new features:

  • Android Market support
  • full root access, setup with SuperUser application
  • full write access to the system
  • faster storage using ext4 file system (we measured a improvement to read and write speed over ext3fs by 5 to 10%)
  • larger storage space for your applications (1 Gb, 970 Mb free after install)

Thanks to Steve (Ttz642t) for his work on our WIKI, Fenice57 and Finless which firmwares really contributed to the make of our custom firmware.
2012/02/10 edit: (Credits) we wanted to clarify that this firmware is largely based on finless Bob's firmware modifications, with additions by fenice57 and arctablet.com

We choose to keep this custom firmware as default as possible, no fancy boot logo, no extra applications. Once you have installed Android Market, you will be able to customize the tablet as much as you want. We will also provide a free "Kitchen" service so you should soon be able tocook and customize your tablet boot logo, applications and settings by yourself.

Installed, BUT Arctools 0.61 included failed to install market, removed and loaded 0.57 and OK !

Also failed to gain complete access to market, removed some directories:

$ adb shell rm -r /data/data/com.android.vending
$ adb shell rm -r /data/data/com.android.vending.updater
$ adb shell rm -r /data/data/com.google.android.gm
$ adb shell rm -r /data/data/com.google.android.gsf

MUCH FASTER BOOT !

Initial impression 🙂

Applying the Fix Missing Apps procedure also helps getting all apps in the Market, it's easy and does not require Rootexplorer or ADB commands:

Both are pretty similar and the speed increase related to ext4 is in the 5%-10% range, probably not worth upgrading for the moment.

I see my post is missing?  Not sure why.  I can imagine why they are both similar!

So Admin, not to cause a problem here but when you say my firmware is not supported makes me a little upset because you used my LATEST 1.3 firmware to make yours!!!  So if my firmware is not supported then why not make your own firmware yourself?  All the documentation to do so is here on your site posted by me.
Heck, you could have used my 1.0 firmware and made your own modifications and do your own work and improvements that I have sent HOURS doing.  I can tell you used my 1.3 firmware directly!  How do I know this?  Because you will find your "boot screen kitchen" will not work on your own 2.0 ROM.
So you may ban me for saying this but if my firmware is not supported here, maybe you should make your own instead of directly stealing my ROM and trying to claim it as yours.  I do not mind people using my ideas and what I have done.  Thats what open source is all about.  I have disclosed all my changes to the ROM including exactly how to do it.  What I don't like is taking my ROM directly, make a simple change, and calling it your ROM.  In my opinion that stealing.

FYI I have been doing extensive testing of my own ROM with ext4.

Understand the recovery system formats the partitions.  They are not ext4 partitions!  The are still ext3!  So mtd ext4 is only mounting a ext3 partition.  ext4 supports mounting ext3 partitions.  You have to go in and change MANY OTHER THINGS to get a real ext4 setup.  However the ext4.ko kernel module does have better performance than the stock rom ext3.ko module but it is NOT because the partitions are ext4.

This is why we test and test and test.  I have been runing benchmrking tools all day now.  The PROPER WAY is to get real ext4.  I am working on that now as well as yaffs...

I can prove it 100%... Try using his kitchen to make a boot screen.  It wont work.  I made some changes myself to this area.  His ROM is a direct RIP of my 1.3 with the Market removed.

I can prove it if needed but thats not the point.  If Admin does not want to "support" my ROMs by talking about them here, then he should not use them as well.  Sounds like a decent thing right?

I didn't think the kitchen was working yet anyway.  The OP doesn't say it is; and the kitchen thread is closed.  That doesn't tell me anything.
