Sowa from archosfans.com has just made a first custom firmware available for the Arnova 8 G2. This custom firmware for the Arnova 8 G2 tablet, brings Android Market and root access to the device.

Firmware download

We have been informed that this firmware should work only on the Arnova 8 G2 8 Gb model,
if you have a 4 Gb storage model, please don't use these custom firmwares.


Full version: AN8G2_full_crom_eu_m2s.zip
Maintain all system applications, added applications Google, except for the map. Updated Market and ROOT.
Installed as a regular way (copying update.img in the bank vntrenney flash), and through RKBatchUpgrade v.1.4.1

Easy version: AN8G2_eazy_crom_eu_m2s.zip
Removed: telephony, living wallpaper, start-up wizard and other minor applications.
Present the updated Market and ROOT. Installation is similar to claim 1

This firmware is specific to the Arnova 8 G2 (8 Gb model) and should not be installed on other devices.

WE WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR DEVICE.

THIS FIRMWARE UPDATE IS USED AT YOUR OWN RISK.

WE RECOMMEND TO FLASH THIS FIRMWARE ONLY IF YOU ARE ABLE TO RESCUE A BRICKED DEVICE USING ROCKCHIP FLASHING TOOLS.

Firmware update procedure:

  • Connect your device to the USB charging cable, fully charge it and leave the socket connected
  • Unzip the update.img file out of the zip archive
  • Copy the img file to the root of your device
  • Unmount USB on your device, it should give a prompt similar to this one:
  • Push the Install button and follow the update procedure
  • You can also refer to our flashing procedure page for more details.

  • The first boot after flashing may take some time (few minutes), please be patient.
  • This first part of the procedure is similar to the one on the Arnova 10, that you can see on this video:

    Restoring Arnova 8 G2 default firmware

    In case you don't like this firmware or if you just want to go back to…

    Welcome onboard Sowa, good to have you around [Image Can Not Be Found]

    I can send you over the Arnova 7G2 firmware dump I am working on. 

    We'll need somebody else for testing, as my Arnova 7G2 test device currently does no boot and my dump is refused by Rockchip 2918 flashing tools, I am waiting for the official Arnova firmware to recovery my device.

    Welcome.
    I'm sorry for my english - Google translator.
    Thank you. I really need a dump. With original ROM problem with unpacking.
    You can download it here http://www.megaupload.com/?d=FZFNP0U0 (found a reference in one of the forums). Perhaps someone from the owners to agree to test AN7G2 Custom ROM, or you relive your own. Waiting for a reference to the dump (update.img)

    You can try a Factory reset (in Privacy settings).

    If it does not help, try flashing again the firmware.

    The firmware author (Sowa) is around in this forum, he may be able to help you.

    In the worse case, you will need to flash back the stock firmware (link is in the blog article).

    Tried both suggestions, same result both times:

     

    The Application Market (process com.android.vending) has stopped unexpectedly.  Please try again.

    based on xda-developers :
    MARKET FIX:

    1. Setting- -> Manage Applications-- >All -- >Market (Clear Cache then 'Force Stop' --
    DO NOT clear data)
    2. Setting- -> Manage Applications-- >All -- >Google Services Framework (Clear data
    then 'Force Stop')
    3. REBOOT

    4. Launch Market

    Repeat steps 1-3

    Still no joy.  Thanks for your efforts Sowa but I think I'll be sending this back - the Amazon site said it had access to the Android Market and it does, via the cut-down app which is no good to me.

    The apps shown on Google Market are quite limited.

    Sowa, maybe changing the ro.build.fingerprint property at /system/build.prop could help.

    Could you provide a better string? Right now we get:

    ro.build.fingerprint=rockchip/sdkDemo/sdkDemo:2.3.1/GINGERBREAD/eng.yc.20110903.152730:user/opinions-on-teclast-p90hdst-keys
