It looks like Arnova has decided to recycle their old Arnova 7 G2 and update these tablets to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) like they did for the Arnova 9 G2i.
At first look, this model is just an Arnova 7 G2 tablet with the same specs: Rockchip RK2918 CPU at 1 GHz, 512 Mb RAM, 7" screen. This "new" Arnova 7 G2i seems to be currently available in a few European countries (Belgium, Netherlands, UK).

The product box is identical to the old Arnova 7 G2, with just an additional Android 4.0 ICS sticker.
The system is running on Android version 4.0.3 (build eng 4.0.3 IML74K eng.root.20120615.040238 test-keys) with a Linux Kernel version 3.0.8+ (built Fri Jun 15 09:25:37 CST 2012)

We do confirm that this Arnova 7 G2i ICS firmware can be flashed on a regular Arnova 7 G2 model. We are currently working on making a custom firmware to update the Arnova 7 G2i and the older 7 G2 model to Android 4.0 ICS with Google Play Store and root access, stay tuned !

Thanks to exelletor and our forum member Oream for the 7 G2i device pictures and the firmware update.

Arnova hasn't released any official ICS firmware for the 7G2. 

The ICS firmware dump and our custom firmware will be released soon, when we are done testing.

The Arnova 7c G2 uses different hardware (Qualcomm architecture vs Rockchip on the 7 G2), so it can't use this ICS firmware, unfortunately.

You'll need to use Rockchip flasher to replace your existing firmware by the ICS custom firmware.

gen1us: As I mentioned the supplied backup.img is mainly for firmware builders and can't be flashed directly.
I'll provide a flashable stock and custom firmware later today.
