it's such a minor issue and setting time to correct one works every where for me...I don't have FB but partner does and she can login fine via browsers on tablet...Try Opera or Maxthon(use tablet version even though states for 10.1 tab) works great for us....Am sure the zone thing will get fixed sooner or later...are version of ICS4 is not the latest so lets wait n see...

have added a thread on how to fix timezones....

works a treat...

 

Alos is Maxthon the tab version(1.6) or phone one(2.65)?

Tab version runs circles round phone one.. And is far better.

>> have added a thread on how to fix timezones….

 

Can you share the link? I am new to this forum and Arnova Tablet G3 - bought it in the US. Having trouble setting up Google Play also using the Archos recommended ArcTools (Market Apps Installer...) I have the same Euro GMT + 2:00 Time Zone and it is grayed!

 

More importantly, when I try the "Default Apps & Market v3.3.4", it gives a "File Copy" error!

 

How is this supposed to work - though it is the recommended by the manufacturer??? Why has Archos / ICS 4.0 have pre-packaged Google Play Store as it is something that most will find it useful...

There have been few details on Google Play setup by arrasmith here.

Arctools isn't currently compatible with the Arnova 7 G3 but we should get it working on it as soon as we have access to a device. We'll make an announce in the forum when the 7 G3 support is ready.

Google Play isn't included on any Arnova devices, and on some older Archos products because they aren't Google certified. So independant solutions such as custom firmware, Arctools application or other "tricks" are necessary.

Cheers.

As admin has stated the Arnova 7 G3 isn't Google certified. So no Play Store.

 

Personally, this doesn't bother me. This little tablet is far more flexible out of the box then any other tablet I've owned. You can put on Google Play and all the bells and whistles it can handle. Or you can remove and "lock down" almost everything except Facebook, Talk, a book reader, puzzle games, and give it to your 80+ year old grand parents.

 

I had to use scare quotes for "lock down" because you can't really lock down a rooted tablet you physically have control of. But, you can minimize the amount of problems by specializing it to a task. For those of us helping out grand parents and great grand parents this really opens up some ideas.

Bought one these for my wife (trying to pull her away from apple) and we are quite impressed with it however, I have a number of questions, hopefully someone can help with the answers.

 

Followed a video on youtube by a guy called gerry showing how to install all Google Apps. Worked a treat, managed to install everything although most dont seem to work/force close or show a message along the lines of "android system has had to close". What are the chances these issues may be fixed in the future? Seriously thinking about taking it back and getting a refund, it seems so restricted without these apps and im not a dev so wont be able to sort it out myself. 

 

One of the apps, Google Play Movies, loads up and opens but simply says that it has detected my device as being rooted and therefore I cannot rent any films. Is there a way of unrooting as Im aware this can be done with other devices? I dont just want it unrooted solely for this app plus it is an app my wife wants to use.

 

Google Play Books is one of the apps that has installed but force closes, again another app my wife would use. 

 

Gmail app also installed ok but simply says "waiting to sync" and after leaving it overnight it was unchanged.

 

The market seems limited to what im used to, is this something that would be opened up if the device was unrooted?

 

The "HOME" button no longer works since installing gapps via gerrys method. Is this fixable or something to put up with?

 

Cant find the link to gerrys video, will upload if i do. Many thanks in advance for any help/answers.
