if you want the tablet rooted, use superoneclick from this topic
To use fastboot you must get the arnova in fastboot mode (you can do that by using the command adb reboot-bootloader, and the arnova will reset in fastboot mode, to see if the device is in fastboot mode, type fastboot devices, to continue with the normal boots of the os type fastboot continue)
ADB COMMANDS :
The tutorial downloads no longer exist, or atleast, I follow the the links published in this forum thread, click download, and it cannot locate the next part.
I just want google+ and kindle apps to work - appslib (on factory os / firmware) doesnt have these listed, so thought I had to flash device (unless I am wrong).
Please help a complete novice at these things (please)
Hello Arnova Gurus,
I have my 7c G2 bricked when I tried to install some Google Play app. Currently it stucks on "Android" logo screen.
I wanted to re-flash it with original rom or some setialpha's mod but cannot get it connected in ADB / Fastboot mode.
I did everything according to the instructions above. I took the drivers from ftp://support.archos.com/ARCHOS%20it/ADB/
When I power my Arnova up with "volume + power" combination it appears in Windows as "Found new hardware - Android". When I power it up with "power -> connect cable -> reset paperclip" it appears "Found new hardware - Qualcomm MSM bla bla bla". In both cases I cannot install the drivers downloaded. So I cancel the drivers installation but then ADB and Fastboot as well as SuperOneClick show no devices connected.
Is it another method for entering Fastboot mode or have I downloaded wrong drivers?
I don't know if it's significant but concerning the Java SE 7u2 I have downloaded this one: "jdk-7u2-windows-i586.exe is for Windows7, 32bit version" I found it the most sufficient for my Windows XP SP2, is it right?
From what I know, Java is not related with the windows version .
Also here are some drivers updated for 7c g2
Unfortunately, still cannot install drivers.
I have made a little research into inf file and I found:
;;; Arnova 7cG2
%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\\VID_0E79&PID_143D
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\\VID_0E79&PID_143D&MI_01
When I power it up as "power -> connect cable -> reset paperclip" it shows in Device Manager identifier:
When I power it up as "volume + power" it shows identifier:
so no one matches, no one is at least similar
Is there any other way to enable Fastboot mode in 7c G2?
I tried several different combinations, removed SIM and SD cards, but could not get it into proper state.
DO you get any type of reaction when the tablet is in boot loop ?
Did you enabled first adb debugging before testing something on the tablet ?
And why did you used arctools, when it is not mentioned that will work on 7c g2 ?
This is the correct state of the tablet to be able to communicate with it
"When I power my Arnova up with "volume + power" combination it appears in Windows as "Found new hardware – Android"
Get the tablet in this state.
Connect the usb cable after you get the tablet in flashing mode, not before.
If you still don`t manage, read this
Also there is huge amount of information here
All right, I DID IT!!!
I just edited the file android_winusb.inf
Below the signature:
;;; Arnova 7cG2
%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0E79&PID_143D
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0E79&PID_143D&MI_01
I added another one:
;;; Arnova 7cG2 by Roddy
%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_18D1&PID_D00D
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_18D1&PID_D00D&MI_01
Then the drivers have been installed.
After the drivers installed I went into c:\\Android\\sdk\\platform-tools\\, cmd, fastboot devices and further according to the instruction.
It would have been perfect if you would have done a backup, it seems that your tablet is a little bit different, at least in terms of usb PID/VID
