Hi,
This is my final ROM for Arnova 7G2.

Installed APK (other than default):

Androidiani
AppBackupRestore
Advanced Task Killer
Bluetooth File Transfer
Cfs Manager
TitaniumBackup
Facebook
GScriptLite
Moffice
Color Notepad
ES File Explorer
Openvpn Settings
Superuser
Youtube

Market is already installed

Market Configuration:
Start the Market, configure your google account and login.
If you should see a few apps, exit to the market, go to settings, applications, manage applications, click on "All" tab, select Market and delete Market Data.

3G
Complete support with USB OTG for Hauwei 3G key models E1550 E1692 E1750 E1820

NTFS Support
I made the necessary changes in order to see external drives formatted with NTFS file system.

Mount NTFS disk what to do:
Automatically at boot time the system will create a folder called win inside the mount point /mnt

Run GScript and add a new script, call it – mount-ntfs -
Enter the following command: /system/bin/ntfs-3g /dev/block/sda1 /mnt/win
Save
Connect via usb otg the disk, start the script and entire contents of the disk will appear in /mnt/win

I did a test with a 1TB drive with my mkv and I was able to see to 1080p without any problems.

To umount the disk, create a new script, call it umount-ntfs and enter the following command:
/system/xbin/umount /mnt/win
Save

WARNING:
During umount, all applications that are taking up the mount point  /mnt/win SHOULD BE CLOSED.
If you do not, the script does not umount the disk and if the disconnected abruptly, you may lose data.

Bluetooth
Entered all necessary kernel modules to support external USB Bluetooth to connect to the USB OTG cable.
Obviously the Android drivers are a bit limited, look on the various forums to see what sticks are compatible.
Of course, Bluetooth file transfer has been included to turn off and turn on and manage the Bluetooth

CIFS support
Added kernel modules in order to see share external network via the CIFS protocol

Full support for OpenVPN
Added kernel module tun.ko to use encrypted connections with OpenVPN server.

Further changes:
Inside /system/xbin directory has been added to the latest version of busybox
The openvpn binary was always placed within this directory.
All kernel modules are loaded at boot time

Good job fenice57, I am testing your firmware right now, so far so good Smile

Any pointers to the list of supported Bluetooth USB dongles ?

Also, have you checked that all included applications can be distributed in this firmware, according to their EULA ? (as finless recently pointed on an Arnova 7c G2 firmware)

 

Thanks.

Yes all App in firmware are Free

To check USB Bluetooth, connect USB key and lounch lsusb command

If ID is: 0a12:0001 (Cambridge Silicon Radio, Ltd ) ok works.

I had forgotten a particular, for the proper functioning of Buetooth, go to Settings, Applications, Developmet and disable USB debugging

Nice job son. One question, apart from the obvious you stated (NTFS etc) is there any difference to Finless Bob's root?

If you have a Finless firmware and if you want, you can flash only boot.img and only system.img ;) or flash only boot.img and take in system.img all do you need, Kernel Modules, ( /system/lib/modules) files /system/build.prop /system/bin/ntfs-3g and so on

This ROM is a continuation of Finless Bob's root, I've compiled myself Bluetooth kernel modules, change ntfs-3g binary and I suppose that are full compatibility with all Arnova G2 model.

I hope to join with Bob for create a only one image without duplication.

UPGRADING 01/31/2012

Here is the latest ROM update
Flash only the boot.img and system.img
The personal data will not be lost but for safety Always have a backup.

Updates:

Editing init.rc to improve the recognition and Bluetooth to use external Bluetooth GPS

Insert other commands in /system/xbin/ for bluetooth debugging and management.

Modified build.prop with several improvements for the system

Added GPS Bluetooth provider in /system/app

Now its possible to use usb bluetooth with active USB debugging and mock locations.

I remember that for the correct recognition of an external Bluetooth dongle, the tablet goes on with the key inserted.
If you physically disconnect the key and if then reconnect, the tablet must be restarted.

20 minutes is a lot, flashing just require 5-10 minutes to get the update running.

You should make sure you are using latest file from post #8, and start with Erase IDB while in Rockchip Flasher tool.

What do you think

Other kernel modules loaded
Converted all file systems in EXT4
Changed All framework
Increased again the file system for the app to 680 MB free
192 MB free RAM

Only thing that should be formatted, No update :-(

O Sorry, I almost forgot

I've chanced the power button keymap, if you move it on the left, executes back command….

Have a nice bakup I'll release its tomorrow ( I hope )
