FIRST LEARN WHAT IS ADB AND FASTBOOT FROM HERE AND INSTAL THE DRIVERS !!!!

http://www.arctablet.com/blog/forum/arnova-7c-g2/what-is-adb-and-fastboot-how-to-install-and-use/

 

AFTER THAT DOWNLOAD THE REQUIRED ROM FILES FROM THE DEVELOPERS TOPIC
Enable from your tablet (if it is working) the usb debugging function, connect to the pc and install the drivers, disconnect the tablet from the pc, and get it in fastboot mode.

The roms can be flashed via recovery or via fastboot 

GET THE DEVICE IN FASTBOOT (SHUT DOWN THE DEVICE, CONNECT IT TO THE COMPUTER THRU THE USB CABLE AND PRESS THE POWER BUTON AND THE VOLUME KEY -  it is minus here, the button that lowers the volume, IN THE SAME TIME TILL YOU SEE A 2 SECOND FLASH )

VERIFY IF THE DEVICE IS IN FASTBOOT USING THE COMMAND :

fastboot devices

IF YOU HAVE A RESULT LIKE THIS

C:\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools>fastboot devices
Arnova-9A59E02264206898 fastboot

YOUR DEVICE IS IN FASTBOOT MODE

 

NOW LETS FLASH A ROM

 

USUALY THE ROM DEVELOPER PROVIDES A RECOVERY IMAGE, A SYSTEM IMAGE AND A BOOT IMAGE

 

THE RECOVERY IMAGE IS:

-      A tool that helps you to flash new roms, to back-up current rom, to flash system updates, to partition the SD-card, to make a factory reset of the device, to flash different files like Google aps (gapps) or new drivers or applications.

 

THE SYSTEM IMAGE IS:

-      How the name suggest is the core of the device, the operating system (Android OS)

 

THE BOOT IMAGE IS:

-      It is formed from two parts, the kernel(the brain of the android wich controls the frequency of the processor and other things) and the ramdisk (that contains sets of instructions that control the system startup, begins the boot process and other operating asspects)

 

TO FLASH A RECOVERY IMAGE USE THE COMANDS:

 

fastboot erase recovery

fastboot flash recovery filename.img    (USE DRAG AND DROP TO GET THE EXACT PATH AND NAME OF THE RECOVERY IMAGE) 

 

 TO FLASH A BOOT IMAGE USE THE COMANDS:

fastboot erase boot

fastboot flash boot filename.img (USE DRAG AND DROP TO GET THE EXACT PATH AND NAME OF THE BOOT IMAGE)

 

TO FLASH A SYSTEM IMAGE USE THIS COMANDS:

fastboot erase system

fastboot flash system filename.img (USE DRAG AND DROP TO GET THE EXACT PATH AND NAME OF THE SYSTEM IMAGE)

 

IF YOU DONT KNOW WHAT IS DRAG AND DROP YOU SHOULD STOP USING A COMPUTER

NOT USABLE AT THIS MOMENT DUE TO AN ERROR

 

New ammendament.

 

For the people that are not so handy, and don`t know to adress commands in commander, you can use :

ARN FLASHER comppiled by DanielVD 

Link : http://www.mediafire.com/?dee9smjsz9uny9s

Way of use:

- perform a factory reset (wipe dalvik,cache)

- download the archive

- unrar`it

- launch the application "GUIFormExamples"

- the app should pop out on your screen

- choose the desired files to flash (you don`t need to flash the recovery everytime when you flash a new rom, the boot and the system needed always)

ENJOY THE NEW ROM

 

PS: YOU NEED TO HAVE INSTALED ANDROID SDK, ARNOVA DRIVERS, JAVA SDK

-you will find those in the post from above.

 

LE: USING THIS STEP YOU AVOID USING THE ADB AND FASTBOOT COMMANDS.
