ICS 4 Interface on the Arnova 10 G2 Testing
Has working Adobe Flash 11.1
Most programs and Gapps work out of the box.
Cam program still a bit buggy.
Get it from here with the steps for your model. : )
This is a better video with the latest version.
This is the native Android 4.0.3 operating system running on the Arnova 10 G2... only the USB mouse works for navigation and the OS works pretty fast in operation.
The Camera/Sensor/Wifi/Touchscreen do not. If there were drivers integrated for this version that would be sweet!
I also had to select the English language right after install to make the icons and system menus readable since it was in the Japanese language by default.
ROM files used and flasher tool:
The firmware you see on the video was adapted from another device, it partially runs but it's slow on the Arnova 10 G2 and there is no touchscreen support unfortunately.
We are checking other possibilities to get ICS working on the Arnova 10 G2, we'll post news when there is progress.

I got the feeling that this thread is dead 🙁
This was a project to look forward to but sadly no reply's from the developer or any progress about this custom firmware.
I hope this thread will wake-up and give the Arnova 10 G2 a new boost because this is still a very good low budget tablet
I can tell you why after working on this now that the 10b G3 ICS firmware is out. A Gingerbread kernel will probably NEVER be able to run a ICS system due to the changes in how the touch screen drivers work (as well as other hardware drivers)! ICS is a major change in Android OS and thus requires a kernel built for ICS and the drivers!
I have in fact successfully ported the 10b G3 system to Gingerbread kernel and got it to boot. But with no touch screen working... It's a dead project and always will be!
We need Arnova (actually Archos the holding company) to finally release kernel sources as required by GPL law here in the USA. This then will allow 3rd party Dev's to get ICS on the G2 line or make fixes LONG NEEDED in the kernel.
Rally the troups and bang on Archos to release the sources!!!!
Trust that I am going to work hard on getting them to do this now. Having distribution rights of product in the USA requires them to comply with GPL requirements... Be it a China based company or French based company! It's not to hard in USA to file for NON-distribution rights when they violate US Open Source complaince expecially GPL... I am working on that now actually!
