this are the drivers for arnova
http://www.nanolx.org/downloads/Drivers.tar.xz
a debian user from this forum has installed them, so it should be ok also on ubuntu

Question

1. Can you tell me the Os version, from settings/about phone
android version
build number

2.Do you have in the folder /android-sdk-linux/platform-tools/
the adb and fastboot files ?

Answers
1. the msdos partiions looks like you where having acces to the entire filesystem of the arnova, but it could be only the programs that you have installed.

2. On windows we have after the instalation of the android sdk, 2 other programs that are installed with android sdk
a) avd manager which is the emulator
b) sdk manager which should be launched and from there a intereface appears

http://www.picz.ro/pictures/898ce64003efd8b233299d236292c89c.jpg
you need to download the all tools and then you should have fastboot and adb full

I do not know if on ubuntu is the same interface, so you should try, and check if you allready have them.

Thanks again for helping.

I have the drivers, but no idea how to 'install' them - they appear to be in a Windows format that Ubuntu won't know what to do with (and neither do I ).

 

Android Version: 2.3.3

Baseband Version:FW8918-V0.0.4.3

Kernel Version: 2.6.35.7 perf+bingo@foxda-desktop#2

Build Number: Gingerbread SW0.0.4.5 HW:0.2 eng.bingo.20110817.155043

 

I have both Fastboot and ADB in the /home/android-sdk-linux/platform-tools/ folder, along with aapt, aidl, dexdump, dx, llvm-rs-cc, NOTICE.TXT and source.properties and 3 other folders; api, lib, and renderscript.

 

My SDK screen looks like:-

I am still trying to borrow a Windows PC or Laptop - I am definitely not buying one just for this!

Thats possible - I have Sun Virtualbox - but no Win7.iso to hand.

Maybe tomorrow I can borrow a Windows Laptop from someone at work.

What happens when you run fastboot or adb binaries on the Linux machine, like in post #12, with command

sudo ./fastboot devices

This ADB on Linux tutorial seems quite clear:

http://esausilva.com/2010/05/13/setting-up-adbusb-drivers-for-android-devices-in-linux-ubuntu/

The Vendor ID for the 7c G2 should be 0E79

This is frustrating - I still get "fastboot: command not found" regardless of where I run it from.  Even if I change to the folder 'platform-tools' and type "fastboot devices" . 

I know the file is there, I can see it if I type "dir" from a root terminal - and I can see it from the browser.

If I right-click on it, the browser identifies it as an executable application, and the permissions look right.  Double-clicking from the browser does nothing.

Whole different game with adb - if I type "adb devices" from a root terminal, I get the following:

 

root@alan-MS-6797:/home/alan# adb devices
No command 'adb' found, did you mean:
 Command 'cdb' from package 'tinycdb' (main)
 Command 'gdb' from package 'gdb' (main)
 Command 'dab' from package 'bsdgames' (universe)
 Command 'zdb' from package 'zfs-fuse' (universe)
 Command 'kdb' from package 'elektra-bin' (universe)
 Command 'tdb' from package 'tads2-dev' (multiverse)
 Command 'pdb' from package 'python' (main)
 Command 'jdb' from package 'openjdk-6-jdk' (main)
 Command 'jdb' from package 'openjdk-7-jdk' (universe)
 Command 'ab' from package 'apache2-utils' (main)
 Command 'ad' from package 'netatalk' (universe)
adb: No such file or directory


Maybe a 'Mode' problem with fastboot or adb?

ADB programs should get installed with the proper mode/rights by default.

I'm not sure if the package add the programs directories in the path, or if you have . in the path in Ubuntu, so it's worth trying

./fastboot

from the directory you see the program.

Thanks for that - now I'm not getting a 'command not found' message, just a blank line, but ./adb devices now gives:

* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
* daemon started successfully *
List of devices attached

Then nothing below.  So I'm guessing now that I need to get the drivers working so the Ubuntu machine sees the device - even though as soon as I connect the USB cable, the PC sees it as storage.

Hang on...  I just saw something change in the root terminal, so I typed './adb devices' again - now it says:

List of devices attached
0123456789ABCDEF    device

That doesn't look like a valid serial number to me - but does it look right?

O.K... thanks to the help I have had so far, I am beginning to see where I have been going wrong.

I got nothing from ./fastboot devices because the device wasn't in fastboot mode.  I put it in fastboot mode and ran it again, now I get the reply:

Arnova-D5DA08FA64206960    fastboot

Now that looks more like a serial number, so that gives me confidence to move forward.

I don't want to do anything with the SD Card, so I'm guessing that all I need to do next is:

1.  fastboot flash recovery trenano-recovery.img

2.  fastboot flash boot nano-boot.img

3.  fastboot flash system nano-system.img

4.  fastboot continue

Could some kind person please confirm?

Thanks,

Alan.

Thanks - I just re-read all the relevant tutorials before doing it - it all makes sense now.

First step - ./fastboot flash erase recovery  - got message saying "error: cannot load 'recovery'"  - so I guess there wasn't one to start with.

Everything else as expected, but the last-but-one step caused a few beads of perspiration as the screen went dim and everything froze until the message appeared - "finished. total time: 48.956s" - it was more like 5 minutes!

So all is well now - thanks for your patience.  The new system looks very smooth and slick, but I don't have too much time left to play with now.

I'm so pleased I didn't have to buy another machine just to edit one config file.

check also this topic, i have posted some usefull stuff for the arnova.
http://www.arctablet.com/blog/forum/arnova-7c-g2-android-firmware-development/useful-stuff/

to acces the recovery mode, you can adress from adb
adb reboot recovery
or from the tablet: settings/about phone/ system updates
to enable the selection in recovery mode you need to press in this order the volume keys
+ - +
or you can press for 27 times the volume key -
it will appear on the screen of the tablet back menu enabled, and then you can select options from the recovery using the seach button from the tablet.
