I have just bought an Archos Arnova 7c G2 tablet for £80 from Carphone Warehouse as my first dip into the tablet market. I realise that it does have limitations but am very pleased with what it does so far.
I am used to getting the full Android Market Gingerbread version on my phone and am disappointed that Archos only give you Appslib which is very limited as it does not have some of my favourite apps. I have also not been able to find apk files for some of these.
I am not very tech-savvy and find it difficult to understand the only online instructions I can find for getting the full Android Market on my tablet. Can anyone explain to me in plain english how to get this or tell where there is a simple link for same? Why do Archos not provide their own easy solution to this?
If archos Arnova would provide a solution, that is not aproved by google, google would sue archos for bilions.
At this moment, arctools don`t work for arnova 7c g2, so the easiest way to get market is not working.
The only option that gives you acces to market is by flashing a moded rom that has market.
You can choose from
http://www.arctablet.com/blog/forum/arnova-7c-g2/arnova-7c-g2-stock-rom-with-market-and-root/ My rom that i build with help of DanielVD
The first thing to do if you want a rom like this, is to read this tutorial
After that i can assist you with team viewer if you want to get a custom rom.
I can explain all the steps to get and instal a new rom, but i think is better if you first read, and see.
Thank you for the advice you have posted.
Unfortunately my computer knowledge is very very basic. I do not even understand some of the computer terms you use, never mind how to apply them!
Unless someone can explain every step in very basic normal english terms, I think I will just have to accept my tablet can only access AppsLib or swap it for a tablet that does have full Andriod market access. As this would appear to be a very arduous task,I do not expect anyone to attempt it, however is there anyone in the UK who would be able & willing to do this for me if I posted my tablet to them? Aside of any postage, what other costs would be involved, so I can decide if this is feasa
Thank you once again for your help.
i`m in uk, birmingham, student
i can help you via team viewer if you want, or you can send me your tablet, as long you pay the post 🙂
Thank you for your offer.
I have not yet fully investigated the cost of posting my tablet to you and back again, which would include some insurance cost as usually insisted by Royal Mail, but it could be reasonably substantial. I therefore would like some more information on the team viewer option, please.
Does this involve you taking over control of my laptop remotely, to download & configure any software, before it is transferred to my tablet? If so, what information would I need to give you and if it is personal eg.email address & password, can it be done over a more secure environment than a public forum? Would then provide me with step by step instruction on how to transfer it to my tablet? I have viewed the YouTube video on this and although it is not clear, it does appear to be the easier? part of the process.
Thank you once again for your help.
I can offer you some extra ways to ensure that you will keep your data safe.
I`m not hunting for credit cards, emails, bla bla.
So if you want by team viewer i will present some ways in wich you will have the trust that i will not gain control or acces to your computer.
You will see all my steps of what i`m gonna do and i`m gonna explain what i`m doing.
I need only the ID from Team Viewer and the password from it (when you instal it you are given an id and the random password, thats is reseting on every start-up of team viewer, usualy is formed in 4 chars)
I do not need email adresses, passwords etc.
You can unplug in any moment the internet connection if you think that i`m not relaible.
You can make an extra user on wich you will not have saved credentials like passwords, emails etc. (this is available for windows xp vista, 7 ).
Consider that i do this for free and in my spare time, also check my other posts where i helped others.
I have been hijacked 2 weeks ago and i know the feeling.
I can give you my personal info if you need more confidence (where i study, what i study, what is my real name)
You can also google my nick name globula_neagra on google, i`m old in the internet and i will not run from my nick name that i used in the past 7 years.
If you want to do`it alone, i can assist you on the forum with more detailed explaining.
Thank you for your reply.
In Team Viewer, do you do by remote all the difficult bits and I then do the link up to my tablet under instruction from you. You would then need to explain step by step exactly what I have to do ie where I will find any controls and how I would operate them in what order and what should be the result?
How should I get on to Team Viewer?
from here you will download the team viewer
if you will give me a skype or yahoo id, so we can speak easier.
The steps are
Downloading team viewer
after that you will give me the log`in id and the password (from the team viewer )
i will be connected to your pc in this way, after that i will download android sdk
-download tremendo`s recovery and flash `it
- downloading a new custom rom, and flash`it to the arnova
this are the main steps, there are little steps on each thing.
you should verify the id is 435 296 313, i think that you copied wrong
so restart the team viewer and the send me the id and the pass by a private message.
check your inbox pls, i sended you a message
check again 🙂
