We should have soon (no date given though) a firmware dump in that you will be able to use to flash your tablet and have it booting again. Another option is to flash the Hyundai A7 tablet which has (almost) the same hardware as the 7 G3, you'll find instructions in the Arnova 7 G3 forum.

For the Arnova 7B G3 http://www.arctablet.com/blog/forum/arnova-7b-g3/arnova-7b-g3/page-2/, a custom firmware with Google Play and root has been released, for the 7 G3 it's the same?

Hello,

 

I spotted the Arctools App on YouTube but it doesn't work for me!!! I think it is because I have a plain ole 7 !!!!

 

I get the error code 20 and 28 about temporary directory etc. on my Arnova 7 G3.

 

Am I right in saying that Arctools (via AppsLib) will support my An7G3 soon ???

 

Thanks in anticipation!!!

Current Android device: AN7G3 4gb

You're right ! Wink

Google Play installation thru ArcTools is currently under development, we'll post updates on our forum and blog as soon as it's ready.

Cheers.

I'm considering to install that custom rom of the hyundai a7... what do you recomend?

Thanks

I bricked a friend's 7 G3 by messing up the google play install (forgot to clear out all the data after putting libs and .apks in the system). I bought him a new one and then installed the Hyundai A7 elvish-for-a7-0.3 firmware using LiveSuite v1.07 on the bricked one.

 

So now I have a 7 G3 (with the wrong firmware) to mess with. And until Arnova releases their firmware I'll have to stick with elvish. Feel stupid for my mistake and disappointed in Arnova and AllWinner as well. Arnova should have released their firmware by now. And AllWinner should have designed their flash boot state to expose the system flash as a block device.

Nope. 7 and 7b use different internals ...

That's exactly what I did, forget to clear the data and bricked the tablet, hmm might give it a another go...

Hello, new member here 🙂

 

I bought arnova 7 g3 yesterday and spent about 6 hours trying to install google play store.

After trying gerry hack I got a pretty messed up tablet, no home button, no gmail, no youtube, android crashes and other bugs.

I did however, managed to install google play store sucessfully and without extra bugs and that is why I'm here, to help who have helped me.

I've made a package that you can download from here:

http://www.xuups.com/gplay_trabis.zip

 

It has a readme.txt file so please read it!!

It is a risk free installation, no need to rewrite or flash anything.

 

Have fun 🙂
