Here is an easy way to install Google Play Store (formerly Android Market), root and Bluetooth GPS support for on the Arnova 10b G2 (capacitive and resistive DT Dual Touch models)

Image Enlarger

This custom firmware is based on firmware dumps from Arnova 10b G2 users, as Arnova hasn't yet published any any official firmware for these models With our custom firmware, you will get Google Play (formerly Android Market) and root on your Arnova 10b G2 Tablet in less than 10 minutes just from your tablet, without any drivers or computer needed.

Install procedure

Before starting, please make sure you backup all your existing apps, data and files that are on your tablet as they will be erased during the flash process. Also make sure your device is connected to the power.

Step 1. Flashing the firmware

Run Appslib that can be found in the applications on your tablet. While in Appslib, search for "Arctools" application, you should get "ArcTools - Google Play / Android Market & Apps installer" in the list, download, install and run the application.
In Arctools, go to Firmware tab, select "Arnova 10b G2 EZ custom firmware 1.2" (or more recent than 1.2 if there is one)
Read the disclaimer in the application and press the checkbox if you agree with the conditions, then press the Download button.
It should take about two minutes to complete the new firmware download.
Restart the tablet when the program is inviting you to.

For Step 1, instead of using Appslib, you can also choose to manually download and install the firmware, we are providing a link for you, together with the official Arnova Flashing procedure

If your device is working(=not bricked), the windows dumping method should also do the work:

Hi, I installed your app (thanks for it) on my arnova 10b g2 and now the system seems to be fully rooted, with Google Play perfectly working. All other applications work fine, but now when I connect the tablet to my Pc by USB cable Windows can't access any longer the files on the tablet's internal memory and SD card. I mean that both mass storages are recognized as removable units X and Y, but when I click on them to explore their resources I get the "pls insert a disc in the removable unit" message and can't go ahead. I tried to debug USB in settings / applications / development but the tablet's system doesn't allow me to select this option. Can you help me sort out this problem? Thanks so much.

Hello again, rebooted the device after my previous comment. Worked now perfect. The tablet has access to Playstore. Perfect. Very happy with this.

Since I made an account here anyway, I just wanted to let you guys know the CFW works flawlessly on my Arnova 10b G2 Dual Touch. Thanks for the good work and keep it up!

 

Edit: Noticed the tablet hasn't got any screen lock security. Maybe that's something to include in the future? If it's at all possible of course.

I just FUBAR'ed my tablet, but I was able to get it into recovery mode and get it working again with this image. It's even more responsive then the old installation was :) )

 

Any chance there will be a 4.0.x rom for the 10b G2, as there is for the 10 G2? (it went wrong with installing the 4.x version for the 10 G2 :( )
