Hi there,

 

I am a recent purchaser of the Arnova 8 G2 (8GB) (yesterday).  But am a bit deflated as it won't do a lot of what i expected it to do... i am not the most technologically advanced!! so don't really understand a lot of what is talked about above (flashed, bricked etc).

 

I would like to be able to access Google Market place so i can use Youtube, Skype etc  Is this going to be possible on the Arnova 8 G2?  Will this firmware download allow me to do that?  And if so what do i need to do to install it?

 

Sorry if these are really simplae questions, but as i said most of what everyone else has said has shot straight over my head! 🙂

 

thanks in advance for any help!

Please have a look at this page where you can download and install Sowa's custom firmware, it will let you run Android Market.

http://www.arctablet.com/blog/featured/arnova-8-g2-first-custom-firmware-android-market-root/

 

Installing a custom firmware is easy but there are always risks, I'd recommend not to do it if you are not sure you or someone can help you to repair your device (using Rockchip Flashing tool) in case it gets bricked (major system failure that prevent it to start).

 

If you have any question, just ask here.

Right, I usually don't recommend this method, because of not having experienced it a lot myself.

I agree this is definitely safer than using a custom firmware and way easier to reverse.
