Arctools currently does not support Google Play / Android Market thru the Install Apps feature. It will require a custom firmware which has been built and is currently being tested. It will be released in a few days.

Hi there. A quick question if I may. I have just found this forum and your answer. Will this firmware be available through the Arctools app? Cheers

The firmware will be flashable using Rockchip flasher tool, maybe also thru the regular procedure or Arctools if all goes well.

The custom firmware build is partly done, but still requires some adjustments and testing before release.

I have been busy with other projects, I hope to make progress on the custom firmware work when I find some time these next days, to publish a custom firmware by this week end or early next week.

I'll eventually see if other options than a custom firmware can be considered for those of you who don't want to flash a firmware and prefer to use a methods such as rootless one which are easier to install but usually give average results.

Following the instructions in the thread you posted I have managed to get market working, its not google play but it will do for now, just a couple of pointers to help people out though.

 

1. after install of market via the instructions in the thread an error icon will appear in the notifications tray, DO NOT click the icon, it will force close the market and gmail etc, just leave the icon be and it will be fine.

2. Market will force close and refuse to open again, simply end the process via settings

 

The market can be temperamental but hey its usable :3

Yeah I have also followed the instructions on the thread above and have successfully gotten Market to run on my 10b G3.

Unfortunately, that little error icon in the notifications tray you mention is the 'Permissions Requested' one - you're right in that clicking it does force close the Market etc. ("Unfortunately, Android system as stopped"), but not being able to use that to grant permissions to your Google account means that GMail and other Google apps such as Reader will not be able to connect and sync data.

There are a couple of other side effects from installing the apps from that other thread too - the Home button no longer works and the screen lock security choice (slide, pattern, PIN) does not get enforced, allowing someone to simply hit the button to start using the tab straight away.

Anyway, looking forward to the custom firmware in the coming days so we can get proper Market and GApps running

Hi guys! I've just bought the arnova 10b G3 today! and noticed that it doesn't have google play store! The arctools thing doesn't work. I've read the above comments but I don't really understand what's going on. Could someone explain to me about this issue and how I may get google play store onto the tablet? Cheers!!!

Hi mozart123

The 10b G3 doesn't have Play or the other Google Apps because it's not an approved Google device (I think it falls short on at least some of the hardware requirements that Google have for a start).

When you first switched on the tablet the process it took you through to install a set of apps will have included AppsLib, which is a replacement for the Play Store.

As mentioned in the second post in this thread Arctools doesn't support the G3s yet, but work is underway to release a custom firmware which you can choose to flash to your device that will either include it or allow you to install it. Flashing non-official firmwares though is probably warranty voiding so you'd do so at your own risk.

Alternatively, there's also a link in post 8 above which will take you to information about how to install the old Google Market app unofficially, but without flashing a new firmware. As you can see in the following posts though, it's not perfect.

Hello I noticed from the post about the custom firmware for google aps store, how far forward is the software? Many thanks for the info 🙂
