Hello,

I have prepared a custom firmware for the Arnova 10b G2 (capacitive model) that need some testing.

Market and (partial) root are already confirmed to work, according to SpecialScorpi user, a calibration Force close error on first boot is mentioned, I am not sure where it comes from.

 
If possible, I would like to get feedback from few more users on this firmware, before I can publish it.

Thank you.

OK having messed with the 10b G2 this cannot be even a partial root. Sorry.  SOme things are missing in init.rc

So I am helping you guys here.

1) No possible way to have root without changes in init.rc. 
Specifically:
on post-fs
# once everything is setup, no need to modify /
mount rootfs rootfs / ro remount
# We chown/chmod /data again so because mount is run as root + defaults
chown system system /data
chmod 0771 /data

I realize /system is still cramfs but you have to give permissions to root and /data to even inject SU so you can get SU permissions via ADB or a native shell.

Unless I am missing something do this simple test.  Go to the Market and download "Terminal emulator"  Run it.  Then type SU.  If you do not get permissions and no superuser prompt shows, you do not have root permissions even simi root permissions!!!

I did this on this ROM and it did not get any SU permissions.

Also just a tip for those that want to play,  This ROM will load and boot on a Arnova 10G2 (non-b but capacitive only)

I did the "su" in terminal emulator and got prompted by SU and returned to # without errors...

Hi all,

 

I tested this: http://www.arctablet.com/assets/firmware/Arnova10bG2/kasty-ez_arn10bg2-23-10.zip on my arnova 10b G2 but I got a lot of problems...

for example:

* when I use the screen in portret vieuw, it is upside-down,

* The screen brightness isnt what it should be,

* and so on...

==> is there another one? or an update on this one somewhere?

 

cheers!

That's the only firmware we have for the moment. We'll publish an update when Arnova make the 10b G2 firmware available.
