On the Arnova 10 G2, push the Volume + button on your tablet and keep the button pressed while you insert a paperclip in the RESET pinhole. Keep the paperclip pushing the reset and the Volume + button pressed for about 15 seconds. The tablet screen should turn black.   If this does not work try just press the reset once but hold the + button down only

Hello,
strange... we are waiting from 3 month the next version (with BlueTooth support) described in "What’s next". I've tried all custom ROMS form my Arnova 10G2 (MorkaMod 1.15, Finelss 1.5, etc etc.) but all, when have promised the "next version" with BT support..... diappears. MorkaMod 1.16 (there is a blog for the test) is 1 month without any news, your version is 3 month old.... The same finless: version 2.0 disappear (but Finless has some problem with his father... i hope now is all OK). I think BT is very high problem... or there is another reason? In any case .... thank you at all for your splendid works.

Thanks for your words.
Well, custom firmwares are done on our free time which is limited. There have been other firmware work done recently with new devices to support and new features to add to Arctools, which creates some delays on things like BT support. It will hopefully be done in the near future, as time permits.

HELP PLEASE !!

I have an Arnova 10g2 tablet. I tried installing new software as per http://www.arctablet.com/blog/featured/installing-android-market-arnova-10-g2-ez-custom-firmware/. I think during this process it allowed some sort of .img file to be loaded. The tablet then turned off, but now all I get is either the Arnova title screen and no further or I can in to recovery but am not able to select any of the options. So at this stage I have a bricked device. I’m hoping someone can enlighten me. Have tried to follow all the forum advice re rockchip flashing tools etc ie on http://www.arctablet.com/blog/featured/flashing-arnova-g2-rockchip-2918-rockchip-flashing-tool/
But I get only a pink square whilst in recovery screen with Connected device 2-1-7 showing.
The options I have on the recovery system v1.3.37 screen are
Reboot system now
Factory reset
SYSTEM recover
Update from SD card
Update from uDisk

Whilst they can be individually highlighted, I cannot select any!

Grateful for any help
Thanks & regards
Chris

Looks like the flash process did not complete on your device.
You'll need to get the Rockchip flasher tool to work to flash again or restore the default firmware. Please see the article, especially the troubleshooting section to make sure you get the green square. Don't pay attention to the recovery system, it's the result of the "failed" flash. You really need to focus on getting Rockchip flasher to work to restore your device.

Hi,
Well I have a question, I hope you will be able to help. I have an older custom firmware which is working fine on my Arnova 10 G2, i was hoping to upgrade it to this new one. I wanted to know, do I have to switch my device back to original firmware before I flash this one or can I just start flashing the new one as it is (over my current custom firmware)?

Thanks and looking forward to hearing from you,

Regards,
Moby

Hello Moby,
You can flash this firmware or any other without flashing back the original firmware in between.
Cheers.

You'll need version 0.42 from here: http://www.arctablet.com/blog/featured/installing-android-market-arnova-10-g2-ez-custom-firmware/

It's available in Arctools / firmware, as a test version. We'll update the page when we have gathered enough test feedback.

Cheers.

Downloaded the files and installed as instructed. Took a minute to understand the instructions but it definitely works very well now. Google Play store, Flash and everything seem to be working very well. Great so far.

Arnova 10 g2 philly tablet. I dont care about the newspaper software on the philly so this worked well.

Thank you developers, admins, coders and behind the scenes creators of these sites/apps/tools! I am definitely making a donation.

I too have installed kasty 1.2 test version, which seems to work fine. However I'm not sure what the previous poster meant by "Flash and everything seem to be working very well". Flash player still causes my browser to crash so I've had to remove it.

Support for Bluetooth does indeed work, and after reading the link to the blog article supplied by Admin, I have been able to pair my 10 G2 tablet with my phone for file transfer purposes. It looks like my phone, an HTC Desire S, despite having GPS isn't a suitable device for this purpose though as nothing happens beyond pairing the two devices unless there's some obscure menu setting I'm missing.

The dongle I'm using is branded 'Livewire' and I bought 3 for £1 each a while back from a surplus store. Whilst not the Dafoddil brand recommended in the article, is clearly has the same CSR chipset, and even the packaging is identical to the Dafoddil.
