I'm almost done updating Arctools to work with Google Play install on the Arnova 7 G3 and I'd need 2 or 3 persons to test it on their device. I'm looking preferably for users with mint Arnova 7 G3, stock firmware, not the Hyundai a7.

If you're interested, please let me know, thank you.

There isn't much risk in itself, as it's just dealing with copying some system files. Still, it's best if testers have some basic Android knowledge, specially dealing with ADB in case we need to do some tweaks... Wink

I really need a few testers to check this Google Play install procedure, gather their feedback and make sure everything is working properly before releasing this setup to everybody.

Test is currently done on invite only, preferably for users with a working ADB setup; please let me know if you want to participate.

I've attached a video of the update process, so you can see how easy it is Wink

Cheers.

I'd do it, but I'd also need a clearly written 'how to' aswell. (as ironic as it sounds, videos on the arnova 7G3, especially youtube, play better than on the two computers I have and on my android phone)

It's not that I'm stupid, but I am prone to bouts of idiocy because I over-concentrate and end up going too far ahead of myself.

Screen caps also are good so I know what to look for as long as they're highlighted with what I should know. 

I've only got as acquainted as I have with android because after I got my android phone back in December, (froyo2.2), then my mother decided to get one (galaxy y with gingerbread) and then my daughter and my cousin all decided to go the 'roid route and each time they had an issue, I got called on whenever they needed help with something. And each time you know you're doing that, you're getting yourself stuck in a loop :-p

So far, the video shows pretty much all the procedure, it should be enough for a few users to verify it's working for them.

I'll document it better once it's confirmed to work on all test machines.

Step 1. I need to add your access as a tester

Step 2. then you install Arctools from Appslib

Step 3. Select the package "Arnova 7 G3 Google Play ..." in Arctools, download it, then execute it

Step 4. Reboot the tablet, you should be done.

I'll PM you the details for step 1 Wink

Cheers.

Hello, I'm a newbie on the board but just purchased the 7 G3 this past Friday.  I don't know too much about androids so I don't know how much help I would be but I would like to see how easy it is to install for newbies to this technology.Embarassed

I will do it. I have a stock 7g3 just opened 5 minutes ago. The other is running A7 firmware, but I would prefer to keep arnova on both eventually.

 

I will not be available for a couple of days, so if speed is needed let me know today if possible.

I'll give it a try just go my 7 g3 about a week ago. Ive been looking for some type of firmware.

Also will GAAPs like maps and gmail work once the firmware is installed?

Thanks for your feedback. If any problem occurs in the near future, please let me know.

I'll wait for two more testers feedback before publishing it to everybody.
