I downloaded the latest drivers from http://arctablet.com/assets/tools/ADB/adb_winusb_driver.zip as mentioned on the blog post here, but couldn't get windows 7 to believe that the drivers were for the 10b G2
Well, I have this nifty little tool called USBDview that gives me the actual information that windows sees about the pad and looking in the manifest file for the driver (named android_winusb.inf) I found that the 10b G2's info was not listed.
So with the needed info at hand I opened the file android_winusb.inf in a plain text editor (notepad is fine) and added the lines
;Archos Gen10b g2
%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USBVID_0E79&PID_1433
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USBVID_0E79&PID_1433&MI_01
after the end of the
section (that has many many lines/entries) and before the line
I saved the file and then did the device manager, right click on the tablet, update drivers and this time the drivers installed and work just fine.
FYI, I got that information from the instance ID displayed for the device in USBDview and followed the format of the existing entries.
It would probably be good for someone with a capacitive version of the tablet to make sure the numbers are the same and if the aren't we can update the info here...
Rich, the Arnova can be in 2 conditions that require different drivers.
1) In recovery mode it needs the drivers I provide in my ROM kit to flash it. RK29.
2) When fully booted to use ADB you need different drivers. (Google). Is this the drivers your talking about? I got ADB to work on mine but drivers were a BEAR.... I found a way to FORCE the driver with the legacy driver choice (unknown device) and that worked. However even then you have to go into /user/.Android and make a adb_usb.ini file and put the specific Android device in there. FOr the 10 G2 it was 0x0e79
Well the devices are described as
So Yes, that would just be the driver for adb as far as I can tell.
Linux used the standard USB drivers for the rkflashtool dump so I didn't have to worry about that.
I didn't realize that there was a separate driver under windows for the flash recovery function, is the flash recovery mode you use in your program the same one I accessed for the rkflashtool? I acessed it by
turning the device completely off, connecting the usb cable to the computer, pressing volume + and plugging the cable into the tablet.
The Hardware ID's (as far as windows can tell) of the tablet when plugged in that way are
and the Physical device Object name is
and the instance ID is
If I can find the stand alone driver I can get the windows version of rkflashtool to work.
Linux is easy enough for me but I expect that others would like a windows version of the backup/restore tool better...
Can an admin please change the title for this topic to
Working windows 7 ADB Drivers for the 10b G2
I think it will help avoid confusion
