We recently reported the existence of the Arnova 7 G2i, which is basically an Arnova 7 G2 sold with Android 4.0 ICS. Thanks to Oream member on our forum for making a firmware dump of his device that is confirmed to work on the older Arnova 7 G2. We have modified that firmware dump to add Google Play Store/Android Market, full root, write access to /system partition and extended 1.5 Gb space for applications (/data partition)

Arnova 7 G2 custom firmware features

  • Clean installation of Google Play Store, no more missing apps (Twitter, Facebook…)
  • Full root support with writable /system partition
  • Root access is controled thru SuperSU.apk v0.96 (free version), a cool upgrade to SuperUser.apk by XDA developer Chainfire
  • Extended space for applications (/data) to 1.5 Gb
  • Install procedure

    Before starting, please make sure you backup all your existing apps, data and files that are on your tablet as they will be erased during the flash process. Also make sure your device is connected to the power.

    Step 1. Download

    Kasty custom firmware download (version 0.43)


    kasty-ez_arn7g2-40-043-1_5G.zip

    This firmware is specific to the Arnova 7 G2 (capacitive model only) and Arnova 7 G2i and should not be installed on other devices.

    WE WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR DEVICE.

    THIS FIRMWARE UPDATE IS USED AT YOUR OWN RISK.

    WE RECOMMEND TO FLASH THIS FIRMWARE ONLY IF YOU ARE ABLE TO RESCUE A BRICKED DEVICE USING ROCKCHIP FLASHING TOOLS.

    Download the file above and extract the custom firmware image (update.img) on your computer hard drive.

    Step 2. Install and run Rockchip Flashing tool

    Please follow the Rockchip Flashing tool procedure: that will explain how to download Rockchip flashing tool, unpack the archive, put your device into flashing mode and flash the custom firmware file that you have unpacked in Step 1. We recommend that you use Restore button rather than Upgrade button in Rockchip flasher to make sure your device gets…

    You need to disable USB debugging first.

    I have a simple question, I have an Arnova 7G2 and wish to update the firmware so I can get Google Play, but my question is If I perform the procedure to do the update, and things go wrong for some reason can I put things back to the original firmware from the Arnova site.

    Our custom firmware has been tested to work by a few users before we published it and it was verified to work ok. There is also good feedback from others that flashed it. Anyway, if the ICS firmware doesn’t fit your needs you can always flash back the stock firmware from Arnova.
    As for flashing a firmware, there is still a risk that the device break due to bad flash memory but it’s very very limited.
    Cheers.
