Getting closer! Market now works over WiFi (a bit tricky for the first-run).

 

Now facing the issue that /cache has only 4MB. Maybe I can pipe /cache to /data (238 MB free)?

Currently it fully works with 3G. - /cache issue solved -

 

Still I need 3G as kickstarter for WiFi. I first want to get rid of this last issue before posting instructions. (not working via WiFi will give too much "doesn't work!!!11!!einself"). Laugh

Just as admin said: there are problems we need to figure out.

 

For me it didn't work because google check-in didn't accept my tablet's MAC address. For admin it worked.

Sorry, looks like I wasn't too clear when I mentionned that to setialpha.

Actually I got the Market installed (a while ago) with stock firmware that I rooted and  I modified Arctools to install the APK/lib in the right place. When trying again with setialpha Nano rev06 [2012.01.26] custom firmware, I faced the same MAC address issue when installing the Market.

Have no fear, ARNOVA hero X is here, Kupo!

Hah! Still we need 3G as kickstarter for adding the google account, but only once! Instructions:

 

Install my newly uploaded nano-boot.img and stock-system.img (re-download IS required, as those are new versions!)

 

nano-boot rev09: http://www.nanolx.org/downloads/nano-boot.img

stock-system.img rev04: http://www.nanolx.org/downloads/stock-system.img

SetupWizard.apk: http://www.nanolx.org/downloads/SetupWizard.apk

 

flash both .img files as usual, you may think about factory reset (fastboot -w)

 

Start device as normal, install arctools 0.61 - run arctools and choose *second* option (default apps + market 3.4.4) - download and install. DON'T reboot device at this point!

 

adb pull /system/app/StartupWizard.apk

adb pull /system/app/Wizard.apk

adb shell

rm /system/app/*Wizard*

rm /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/*

mkdir /mnt/sdcard/cache

exit

adb push SetupWizard.apk /system/app/

 

on Tablet:

Settings > Device Info > Launch StartupWizard on next boot

 

Now you can reboot device. Instuctions for setup wizard:

  1. press android ->
  2. skip (!!) ->
  3. tick both boxes -> -> ->

Settings > Apps > Manage > All -> clear cache+data for contacs storage + market

Settings > Accounts -> enable both background-data options -> reboot

 

DISABLE WiFi and use 3G until I tell you that you can re-enable WiFi!

 

Settings > Accounts -> add account -> et voila!

Wait until sync is done (the circle-arrow notificationbar icon) -> reboot

start market -> accept terms -> try to install an application > 2MB (eg: facebook) in order to check whether /cache is setup properly (if download fails or it force-closes something is wrong) -> reboot

 

Now enable WiFi start market and re-enter your password -> wait a bit and TADAA!!! Enjoy your AndroidMarket on 7cG2 😀

 

NOTE:

If you ever want to do a factory reset with above modifications, then first remove SetupWizard.apk and re-add ARNOVA original StartupWizard.apk and Wizard.apk - if not you'll brick your device!

 

HINT:

If you don't have a credit card but want to buy some app, you might want to try "AndroidPIT". You pay a given amount via PayPal before you buy and then you can simply download them. Sadly the don't have all apps that are in the market, but still - there's also a -50 - -75% offer each week. To install "AppCenter", just navigate to androidpit.de/ from tablet and install the apk.

@admin: could you replace my first post with my last one? I already remove rev06 from my page, as re09 is clean and working.

Hi all,
thank you very much for this Rom.
I have a problem during the flasshage: being in the recovry and browsing my SD card, it does not detect theflash file. img
I said that I can not access the Fastboot using the method: Power + volume (nothing happens and the tablette does not start) and I have to do a reset (press the little button behind) in order to restart the tablet

Then I go through: parameter / update the system ==> restarts on the tablet: Android sysytem recovry (third) and I choose: choose a package to install, except that it does not detect the nano-system.img
Can someone help me?

Sorry for my english.

Sorry for my english.

The recovery process need you the use ADB to send the files from your computer to the tablet, it is not done thru the Settings on Android. Please, have a look on the Internet on how to install and run ADB on your computer.

download android sdk from thw website, put it into a folder, copy to path the directory of the folder, and also download adb driver for arnova.

open cmd , turn off your tablet and after press power + volume down, connect the tablet to the pc and after do whatever you want.

It worked ! Fantastic !!!  I'm really pleased!

 

Network location services via 3g or wifi still don't seem to work. I think this could be the fix...

 

I think this is what needs changing... inside 
/system/framework/framework-res.apk

If you decompile that you can see 
/res/values/strings.xml

There are these lines in that xml file:

<string name="config_networkLocationProvider">@null</string> 
<string name="config_geocodeProvider">@null</string>

I believe they should be:

<string name="config_networkLocationProvider">com.google.a ndroid.location.NetworkLocationProvider</string>
<string name="config_geocodeProvider">com.google.android.l ocation.GeocodeProvider</string>

I don't really know how to recompile and resign framework-res.apk though, perhaps someone can have a go with this?

I install the SDK and put (the nano-boot.img + stock-system.img) in the Tools folder.
I connected the tablet fastboot mode (detected by the PC and install the drivers)
I opened the cmd ... but I do not know what to do !!! 

Sorry but I am a novice computerLaugh
Someone could make a tutorial for flashing this ROM?
Thank you for your answers.

**Note all forward slash in this post should be backslash but forum keeps deleting any backslash I type! **

 

I'm not sure where the tools have installed by default on your computer.

I'd suggest that you find the tools folder and copy to the root directory of your computer, ie c:/tools

copy the nano-boot.img and stock-system.img to the c:/tools folder as well

 

Then start > run > cmd

command prompt window will open

 

type (without quotes) "cd/tools"

Connect device in fastboot mode ( with device off already, hold volume "-" button then hold down power button until lights flash and go off) connect USB cable

Type "fastboot devices"

it should see your device listed like:

Arnova-1234567890ABDC fastboot

 

then type these commands, again without quotes

"fastboot erase boot"

"fastboot erase flash"

"fastboot flash boot nano-boot.img"

"fastboot flash system stock-system.img"

"fastboot -w"   Optional to reset to factory settings

"fastboot reboot"

 

Then your device should boot up in to the new firmware.

Hello, I am also the owner of 7cG2!
Thank you for the work you do for us ..

- I wanted to know if it was possible to implement the USB, to connect peripherals such as mouse, pen-drive, etc. .. (or if there is any other way);
- The latest verision flasplayer is integrated? you can install it manually?

I agree to CFW without programs, without compromising the various copyright .. so each user can customize at will. Laugh
