I have just bought a Arnova 10b G3 and I must say I am really happy with it if I compare funtionalities to price.

On my smartphone (nokia) I have 3G access and I can start an ad-hoc wireless network. Problem is that I cannot connect with the 10b G3 to that ad-hoc network. (Androïd limitation)

 

I would like to change the wpa config but therefore I need root access. Anyone here know how to get root access on the 10b G3?

One option would be to use our custom firmware for the Arnova 10b G3 (to be released in a few days), it will provide Google Play and full root access to the tablet, so you'll be able to modify your WPA config.

With this firmware are there any extra/other features not already included in the built in firmware? (Excluding Google Play access)

It will include the standard GMail app and will be rooted, with SU access. There's probably more to it than that - a lot of testing to make sure it's as stable as the standard firmware and maybe some tweaks for performance, not sure on that front.

Is there any chance of having the Apps 2 SD function within this firmware?

Hi. I am Agustin from Argentina. Got one in spain earlier this year. Was able to get the GApps Package with Google Market with no ROM change.

I am actually looking forwards to some custom jellybeans firmware so i could get chrome running, plus some nice features (included in the ones availble here with PIP:http://www.arctablet.com/blog/featured/arnova-10b-g3-custom-firmware-android-4-1-jb-root-space-apps-pip/)

The thing is, since the tablets battery aint that good i want to be able to turn it on on-the-go with no need of charger.

so, in the meanwhile

http://www.arctablet.com/blog/forum/archos-arnova-general/enabling-wifi-adhoc-mode-with-wpa_supplicant-file-tethering/

ill need to have root acces to stock firmware android 4.0.3 in orther to either edit "/data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf" or change name of "sys/bin/wpa_supplicant" and get "wpa_supplicant_xoom_wifi_adhoc-1.zip" working

(found here: https://docs.google.com/viewer?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.arctablet.com%2Fblog%2Fwp-content%2Fforum-file-uploads%2Fadmin%2F2012%2F06%2Fwpa_supplicant_xoom_wifi_adhoc-1.zip).

Might adb help me from Windows PC to get access to these protected area and replace what i need to?

Is the only way to root the tablet?

Is there anyway to do this without changing its ROM?

In my case, ive got rockchip so i guess i can make an image of my actual firmware and flash it back if needed (?)

Hope my questions help others too

Thank you!

"Might adb help me from Windows PC to get access to these protected area and replace what i need to?"
ADB will not work to over-write the files, you need root for that.

"Is the only way to root the tablet?"
From what we know, yes., tough i don`t know if others have tried other root solutions, usually we provide pretty fast a rooted firmware.

"Is there anyway to do this without changing its ROM?"
The only way is to dump your actual ROM

"In my case, ive got rockchip so i guess i can make an image of my actual firmware and flash it back if needed (?)"
I don`t understand what do you mean by having a rockchip, but if you refer to dumping the firmware, and rebuild it in to a new flashable pack, you can do that only if you know how.
