You can't! Sorry to be so blunt, but it's the truth.
The 10b got left behind by independant developers and Archos, too.
If you bought it recently, try to get as much of your money back as soon as you can.
Then save your money for a tablet with android 2.3 or higher pre-installed and with actual access to the Android market out of the box.
Yes, I'm bitter but it's my own fault. I should've done more research before buying the 10b.
I mean it is obvious that it won't run gingerbread, but was hoping a stable froyo would have been available by now. Another big dissapointment was to not find the a 10b forum at xdadevelopers. That right there would have been my first red flag had I researched before buying. [Image Can Not Be Found]
There has been some work to get Google's Market and Android 2.2 (Froyo) on the Arnova 10b.
See here: /blog/category/devices/arnova/arnova-g1/arnova-10b/
Based on users feedback, these custom firmwares are not enough stable for a daily use. There is still some hope to build a better Froyo firmware based on the Rockchip RK2818 binaries available for other devices.
Regardint Android 2.3 Gingerbread, its current implementation built by independent developers is currently very limited and may not be supported in the future.

DO YOUR HOMEWORK BEFORE TAKING ANY OF THESE STEPS !!!!!! .... I`ve got market on my wifes 10b , go to the 10b tab on this site, install the froyo upgrade ,,,AT YOUR OWN RISK !!!!!! , there is no going back !!!!! then download arctools ,( i think it`s available in appslib),,, instructions on how to allow market to run are also on this site , from what I can remember, it`s not a big deal to do , although it seems to be phone software rather than tab , also, I lost the video cam and camera, but got the camera back after installing a camera app from market. froyo did run much faster than the original os and after a bit of research and tweaking tips from the web , the 10b does seem fairly stable.
I have a 10b G2 Arnova Tablet. I have Working Google Apps and Market on mine. That includes Google Calendar and I am able to sync it. Follow this post to get market and apps....
Then you need to find the 3 Google Calendar apks ( I don't remember where I found mine and the install instructions) and install them one at a time. I don't remember the order, but once they are installed you need to get the "Any Cut" app. Long press on a blank spot on a screen and select shortcut -> any cut. Then go to FIRST Accounts and Sync you see and press it to have the shortcut on screen. Click that and it should bring up the Google acct. settings that were created when you got Market installed and it made you log in to your google acct. After that is open, you can click on the acct name and set options as to what you desire synced. VERY IMPORTANT, follow the instructions closely in the above topic and the same with the topic you find for installing Calendar. The apks MUST be installed in a certain order before you can run any of the apps or use market. If they are not, you will have to uninstall, then reinstall until you follow the correct order. But my Calendar, Maps, YouTube, Market, and Gmail all work well. My thanks to those who went before me that got these items to work and shared their knowledge. You just don't fully know how much you are appreciated. I can also add to my 10b G2 from the market.android.com website as well. I can know immediately if an app can be downloaded or not. Be well - Kaci
Edit - Btw, I am running Gingerbread on my 10b G2 if you were wondering.
