I'm new here and I'm really hoping someone has some advice for me. Last year I bought my mom an Arnova 7b G2 tablet on sale for her birthday because she was hinting she wanted a tablet, but I'm in college and can't afford to buy her an expensive iPad, Nexus, etc. Anyway, she didn't like using it because of the resistive touch screen (which I didn't really know what that meant while purchasing it; I just thought the dual touch was cool) so she ultimately gave it back to me because my dad bought her something else.
So a few months back I found a custom Honeycomb ROM for the 7b G2 and figured I would load it on and hopefully make the tablet usable, because I personally can't use it at all with its lack of features and annoying resistive screen, so it was just sitting in my closet. I successfully got the ROM loaded and the interface looked great, but the screen was unresponsive. No matter where I pressed, and I literally pressed every specific part of the screen, it wouldn't respond. I figured the ROM was corrupted or not designed for the 7b G2 like it had said, so I just used Rockchip to flash back the stock firmware from the Arnova website which restored it back using the update.img.
Well, still no luck. Everything restores fine using Rockchip and the tablet reboots, taking me to the startup wizard, but it doesn't recognize any touch. What did I do wrong? It can't be hardware related because it worked fine before flashing the custom ROM. Is there a way I can completely 100% wipe the tablet so it'll take me to the calibration wizard first thing when turning it on, or anything like that? I haven't tried using this in months, but tonight I decided to try it again and still got nothing, so I figured since I've been registered on here, maybe, hopefully, someone has some advice. I've used the tablet with a Windows 7 desktop and a Windows 8 laptop, so I tried to rule out the computer as well as using a different USB cable. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
Have you tried to use a resistive firmware when you flashed ?
Like this one
I've only flashed just that one Honeycomb ROM and none since then because I think if I remember correctly, I had to use the custom recovery to do it which required the touchscreen to work at the time. Can I just try flashing the one you recommended with Rockchip or is there a different method? Thanks for your help so far.
You can flash it using rockchip tools, using the restore option.
