Ok, so how exactly does installing this work?

I figured I just need to unzip the file and put update.img on my sd card. 

When I reboot my device, it detects that there´s firmware on the sd card and asks if I want to install it. I click yes, then the device tells me to keep the charger plugged in and it reboots. 

However, it doesn´t install anything - when it´s rebooted it´s still running stock firmware with all my settings as they were before.

So what am I missing?

 

Thanks in advance!

After the reboot, you should have the new firmware installed. It looks almost like the stock firmware, with Google Play and other apps added in the application list.

Thanks for your answers. Laugh

Hm, that´s what I thought - but there´s no google play installed, just the market that I had installed myself. (which is the oldest version).

So, it is necessary to install this using the flashing tool? Have others tried that using this method? I don´t wanna risk bricking my device.  Embarassed

Thank you, I´ve installed it now and everything seems to work fine. Laugh

EDIT: Oh yeah! This thing has the new google music and most importantly a calender with working sync included. This firmware is amazing!

Hey, sorry it took me so long. 

I´ve tested a couple of apps now: screenshot apps work, lbe privacy guard works fine as well (I couldn´t find the particular firewall you wanted me to test but lbe is an app that enables you to take rights away from apps.), link2sd works, ad away doesn´t work because the system partition is read only.

 

If there are any specific apps you want me to test, feel free to ask.

hello together,

 

i just got that - for me - fine ereader with the taste of internet and apps around android for 2 days. playground for me. i successfully installed via demo on youtube.com a new firmware directly via arctools (as shown in the video). all works fine.

 

but i have still 3 questions - atm:

as mentioned above i used the arctools to flash new firmware onto system. all went fine. all is fine working. the question for me is the announced firmware from this site (update.img). where is the difference. does it offer more features?

 

i either successfully got that go launcher ex app onto system. all is fine running. is it then possible to fully uninstall the ebook crap that was before installed and shown half of the startup screen?

 

last but not least, sorry around i am totally fresh to apps, android and that kind of "playstuff", i am asking if i need any root onto that system, is there any root already within and for what (if) i need root parts or fully rooted area onto the 7e g2 dual ....

 

plz excuse my bad english. hope u get what i tried to express :)

 

thx for time within the hopefully upcoming answers!

1. I think stock firmware offers no more function, than custom. That is rather
reader than tablet, but very nice
2. You cannot uninstall or freez ebook launcher without remastering software.
3. Root is not real, it is waste thing.
If anybody of arctablets gurus would confirm that it is possible get full root on
this tablet i wll try to cook it.

hello olas, hello around 

first thx olas for the short but direct answers. 

on point 2 i am still having a question:

i installed go launcher ex for new startup etc. menu, so the for me crappy ebook menu on startup has gone. is it now possible to fully uninstall the part of the old email startup. or is there no need to do so? ill guess the ereader content is not really big and so it can still remain there....

just wanna get that ereader/tablet as fresh as it can be, thats my intention on that point.

HI LaPpeN.
What about email my suggestion is disable it on startup by ES task manager for ex.
DONT DISABLE EREADER LAUNCHER, GET BRICKED READER.
