I would have liked to download books on my tablet but the Appslib choice is awful. Have tried downloading kindle book onto pc and transferring but didn't work. Is there a good way to get Android Market ie a quick fix? Have seen people do it on You tube, but some say its messed up their other software. This is my first tablet so please go easy on the technical stuff.

Admin thanks for that but I have a multi touch Capacitive model. Should I use a different one?

This one is for the Dual Touch resistive model and shouldn't be used.

Please use the Arnova 7b G2 capacitive custom firmware:

Thank you so much Admin. It worked beautifully. My tablet defaulted to its own model download when I was going through the process. Now have the Google Play market and have already downloaded a good book. Am now very pleased with my tablet.

babsperry,

I'd be interested if you could make a picture such as the first one here for a blog article on this custom firmware.

There are instructions to upload pictures here: http://www.arctablet.com/blog/forum/arctablet-website/uploading-imagesfiles-on-the-forum/

Thanks.

Would do Admin, but I dont have a good enough vid camera.  The process is the same as for the video for the dual touch model which was sooooo helpful, and as i mentioned, it defaulted to its own model download. Also didn't have to touch in the four corners like for the d.t. model, that was the only difference.

I'd just need a static picture of Google Play main screen running on the tablet, not a video Wink

Can you get ArcTools from Appslib, run it and copy here the contents of the first two lines (Device & Build) that appears in the Firmware tab.
