Hi everyone, my first post 🙂

 

I tried flashing AR8G2 MorkaMod to my Arnova 7 G2 (yeah, I know!) and now it has a white screen. I can turn it off by pressing reset button, but I am unable to re-obtain connection between tablet and RKBatchTool - is my tablet bricked, or are there still recovery methods?

The tablet bootloader used by RKBatchtool can hardly be damaged by a wrong flash. You should still be able to use RKBatchtool without problem, what's happening exactly when you put your tablet in flash mode (with the reset pinhole) ?

Pressing the reset button causes the tablet to go blank screen (appears off) - Batch tool does not show tablet attached. Attempting to enter recovery mode, but I've never worked out the exact method, and have just tried various combinations of power-switch positions until the tablet was recognised by my machine.

 

It appears as though the 'ARNOVA' splash bootloader has been destroyed. If anyone can advise on the exact proper way to invoke recovery mode on my 7 G2, that would be greatly appreciated as it has no external buttons.

Connect the arnova 7G2 with the usb cable and push the power button towards the little lock. That will let the batchtool recognize your tablet 😉 Hope this helps

OK, tablet has white screen and won't turn off. Pressing reset changes the screen to black (appears off)
I have connected it whilst in this off-state to mains charger and USB to PC. Power switch is in the central location. 

Moving power switch to locked position does not register the device with Batchtool 🙁

 

The following video shows a 'flick' movement with the power switch:

feature=player_embedded

 

I accidentally got it right when flashing the previous image, and yet I am unable to attain recognition again. If you can be as specific as possible, that would be great 🙂

Hmm well that's how I do it all the time. So your device has to be off like you did. nothing on the screen just black. connect your usb cable and move the power switch to the little lock. Maybe you can check your devices in device manager on windows. The name of the device should be "RK29 device". If that's not the name of the device or if there is a little yellow question mark this means you have the wrong drivers. Try and let me know how it goes Wink

I have the driver installed because I previously did a flash.

 

Plugging in USB from off results in tablet turning on to white screen

Sliding power to LOCK - not recognised

So your device turns on when plugging the cable? that's strange. What happens when you first lock and then plug in the usb?
