Been lurking on this forum for a while, have to say it's very good.

 

Dipping my toe in the tablet market for first time.

after reading extensively, do i have my conclusions correct?:

 

1: leave it as it is, live with small storage space for apps, no root for installing various/specific apps

2: use arc tools to get android market but not root it to get more space and better performance

3: Root it, to get more space, better performance,all apps..

Just not sure what is best for me, and what i should do next

 

p.s well done to admin,finless,damo, and all the others who have really excelled themselves and got involved with the development of this....bravoCool

Your understanding is correct, I would add the following:

2. You can't current use Arctools to install Android Market on a non rooted (or non prepared custom firmware) device.

 

And a new point:

4. Rootless Market installation: see here http://www.arctablet.com/blog/forum/arnova-10-g2-general/install-android-market-without-root-on-latest-firmware/

This method will eventually make it into Arctools to help automating the process.

There seem to be 3 main setup approaches:

 

1) Finless root with expanded appspace. Drawback is you need some  flashing installation tool / skills (does it even work from a mac?).

 

2) Simple htcmania root which permits gmarket via arctools (do not use the first spanish version of root which clogs up appspace)

 

3) No root, just download a simple version of gmarket (described in this forum or an overall setup tips list in http://forum.archosfans.com/viewtopic.php?f=87&t=60005
