I rooted mine successfully, here are the steps I took:

 

1. Connect tablet to PC through USB cable.

 

2. Activate USB Debug mode in tablet's developer settings.

 

3. Windows will probably not correctly install all the necessary ADB drivers to connect to the device in USB Debug mode (unless you already have ADB drivers installed for your device), so install the drivers from THIS site:

 

http://www.arctablet.com/blog/featured/adb-driver-update-for-archos-arnova-devices/

 

That page doesn't list the 10c G3 as supported, but it works fine. Be sure to download the drivers zip file PLUS the separate inf file that will need to be placed in the unzipped 'usb drivers' folder.  Then go to Windows Device Manager and right-click the android device that is shown as not working, then manually install the driver from your unzipped folder.  Then the device should appear correctly in Windows Device Manager.

 

3. Download the RootBurner tool from the link below:

 

http://nanospic.ro/?p=434

 

Run the tool and click 'Identify Devices' - it should then find your tablet.  If it did, then click the 'Root Device' button and wait - it will take some time and the tablet will reboot a few times (also after a reboot you may need to unlock the tablet from it's lock screen and then let it continue working).  Eventually the tool will report that it was successful.  You can test that the root was successful with the Root Checker app from Google Play, or use any app that requires root (like AdFree, Titanium Backup etc.)

 

If the RootBurner tool did not find your device when you click 'Identify Devices' then you most likely have a problem with your USB drivers, check that USB Debug mode is definitely activated in your tablet's developer settings, and that the ADB drivers have been properly installed (see step 2).

 

Also note that the RootBurner site also has another method for rooting these devices, by installing files to an SD card instead of using the USB method through a PC.  I have read that the SD method can sometimes work with the Arnova 10d G3 tablet (although it doesn't work for everyone apparently) and it definitely didn't work for my 10c G3, I needed to use the PC tool through USB.

 

These steps definitely worked perfectly for rooting my Arnova 10c G3 tablet so I hope this helps save someone some time.

 

Good Luck :)

Using this method on Windows XP doesnt work properly. I tried this and all works fine until I rebooted my tablet. Everytime I rebooted, a factory reset happened.

So I had to unroot and search for another solution. In another german android-forum a user wrote that the same happened to him :(

Hello,I got a Arnova 10c g3,and i love it,but i am used to have root on my device.

The thing is...I cant install linux to my PC(im not allowed)

So can anyone confirm that this method works on windows 7??Any problems with the rooting?Or is a bugless root possible over windows 7??

 

Thank you.

But a post under your first says that tablet got a factory reset bug on every boot booting when he rooted over XP,so I asked for that.

So,this will work on windows 7 and wont end up with a soft brick,or did You have any problems while rooting on win 7? 

Sorry for annoying you,but it is important to me because warranty is active in Germany,not in Croatia,so I dont want to risk bricking it...

Well all I can say is that I used Windows 7 and I documented everything in the first post, I had no problem.

 

Other people used my instructions and also had no problem.

 

One person did have a problem using Windows XP (though they say they were able to unroot so it was not a brick), but another person was successful using XP after installing the official Android ADB drivers that you can get from the link below - but if you're using Windows 7 then it's probably better to use the link from the 1st post since I know it definitely works for Windows 7.

Worked instantly for me!!!

 

Only thing: How do i set the LCD density to 120? Items from the UserInterface are a bit too large on this 10.1 inch tablet.

 

EDIT: Just install build.prop editor from the play store, and set ro.sf.lcd_density to 120. DO NOT SET IT TO 140! the launcher WILL crash if you do so! Default value is 160.

Hi!

I'm glad that it worked for someone on the same device than me! So I am tryning now with my FamilyPad 2.

However it doesn't work for me: :(

I made the first step to detect my device, which was okay apprarently (strangely detected as "Android phone"...) but using RootBurner :

>> Kill Server...
>> Detect Device...
<< Detected Device : 20120918000000e5
>> Get Manufacturer...
<< Manufacturer is archos
>> Get Model...
<< Model is ARCHOS FAMILYPAD 2

>> Kill Server.....
>> Detect Device...
<< Detected Device : 20120918000000e5
>> Check if device is rooted.....
>> This device is not rooted !!!
>> Preparing Rooting Step 1......
>> Device is rebooting...
>> Please wait.....................
<< Detected Device : 20120918000000e5
>> Preparing Rooting Step 2......
>> Device is rebooting...
>> Please wait......
<< Detected Device : 20120918000000e5
>> Device is rebooting...
>> Please wait......
>> Check if device is rooted...
>> Sorry but your devices is not rooted !!! Try other method to root !

 

EDIT: AS for the way to configure adb, I've used the procedure here :http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1413293 (and there are no errors at this point)
