I have a working and non working 10b G2 tablet.  What steps do I need to do to make something that could fix the non working tablet?

Thanks

You need to make a dump of the device, following the hints given in this forum thread:

/blog/forum/arnova-9-g2-firmware-version-and-password-protection/willing-to-try-rooting-this-model/page-3/#p2100

 

Having dumped the firmware, you should be able to flash the defective model with the dump (image of the backup partition) from the working one. If you do not manage to do it, you may hope to get the dump from another Arnova 10b G2 user (nobody has done it so far) or Arnova website when they release it.

Gingerbreak 1.20.

Z4root won't work on Android 2.3 systems.

Gingerbreak does not fully work.  It cant write superuser.apk or SU to /system because /system is cramfs and is read only!  Even if it put those on /data it is not a full root until you can write to /system.  The only way to do that is to conver system.img to ext3 and edit the boot.img setup files.

 

If someone dumps the rom for this model I would be glad to make a fully rooted rom!

I am in Cali so thats a long way!

However if you want to ship it and pay shipping back I have no problem doing that.  It would help the community and you would have a rooted 10b (if it can be done).

Thanks and got your PM.  However before you ship me that I am concerned about getting a working ROM to root.  Arnova's web site does not have one for download.  In this thread here we are talking about how to dump the ROM. 

/blog/forum/arnova-9-g2-firmware-version-and-password-protection/willing-to-try-rooting-this-model/

I was not successful because my Linux is in a VM and I cannot get control of the USB port.  Then Admin dumped his and it is not usable (at least I cant figure it out).

So until we can get a 10b G2 rom dump or figure out for sure we are able to get ROM dumps that work, shipping me the thing would not help me much until we figure this out.  So wait until we get a handle on it and then you can ship it to me.  Otherwise it will just sit here until we figure it out.  I am OK with that if you are? Either way you want to go.

Well I am OK with you shipping it to me but again it would sit until we figure out how to dump ROMs that we can then actually use to make ROMs with the current tools.
