Okay, now that it is on there what's next? It is still rebooting but I know it can take a while no biggie. I do not have a memory card in it yet, just the internal memory. I sent it directly to the tablet.....Is there anything special I need to do for the Arnova after? I see that it said to follow their install for the android market after but its for the Archos not the Arnova.

Just go onto the apps lib market on your device and search for arctools on there and install it.

Start it up and follow the instructions on the guide that I posted the link from.

 

I did that ran the program, selected market for Gingerbread and it installed it all great. than you have the proper android market after that. I think after that I ran the Android market, but had to sign in on my Google Account to be able to use it. If you havent got one just sign up

Archos and Arnova are part of the same company.

Okay I installed arctools, went in and it asked me to select what I have the custom or the regular. I selected custom. It then downloaded something and asked me to restart my tablet. I did, now it is running and update again like it did when I installed the custom....Is that normal? I do have a google account so....

    1. Prepare your device.

    If you have just installed your machine for the first time, you can skip this step.

    In other case, specially if you already have a Market installer application on your device, you need to reset your device

    > This will reinstall your system, deleting your installed applications, your video, music and personnal files on /storage folder and the sdcard are not affected)
    Go to Settings Menu, select Repair & formatting

    I dont have a repair and formatting in my settings menu?

    yes thats is fine.

     

    Read the posts from wi fi and internal storage for some tips on storage etc, this may help you out a bit. You need our google account if you install Gmail and other google services.

    Your welcome m8.

    My advise to you is get a memory card for your device and when you install programs move them to the memory card through your settings. Let me know if you get your facebook working as well[Image Can Not Be Found]

    I got a memory card last night, the only issue is many of the program will not go to the memory card so every now and then it tells me that I am running low on memory 😐 Facebook is working, so is skype...HELL EVERYTHING IS WORKING!! It runs SO much faster now!! The internet strength is always good when it was always poor before! Why would they limit you and make such a crappy system when you can have it THIS good? I am impressed and thank you so much for your help! Is there any way to solve the internal memory issue?

    This was on my old SD card from my HTC Evo, I was able to install it on my G2 with no problems just now. I figured I would upload it and share it since people are having problems, it's the official FB app but I think it's an older version.

    Try titanium back up pro, this can move system apps to the sd card as well as others, it can also delete system apps just make sure they are safe to do so.

    Dont have loads of live wallpapers installed they take up system storage.

     

    Make sure that you clear the cache of programs, this can make a big difference. You can find cache cleaners on the Android market or do it from within settings/manage applications.

     

    Remove apps that you dont use because they will usually take up some space.

     

    Try it out.

     

    Hopefully these solutions will only be temporary as Admin are working on a fix for this[Image Can Not Be Found]

    Try business calender. Usually a lot of these calenders sync with Google calender to bring up you appointments etc.

     

    Have you tried installing Dolphin browser or Opera browser to see if these give you the problems?
