Can anyone with an Arnova 8G2 4 GB model help with making a firmware dump ?

We have a few users that flashed the custom firmware for the 8 Gb model. It did not work and they ended up with bricked devices that would require flashing a working firmware.

Thank you.

These two usually don't work with Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

Try Gingerbreak 1.2 instead:

Hey; i have just create a "update.img" ( 75,851 MB) from my arnova 8 G2 8 Gb DT, from this way:

( sorry for my english)

( I have installed SDK tools r18 and ADB)

 

1.-download Rkdump file and put it with the adb archive  in the folder when you install the platform tool in android sdk ; for example;  C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools.

1.-conect the arnova device to PC with usb debugging on.

2.-download superoneclick, i have 2.3.1 version

3.-execute with administrador the superoneclick and click root

4.-when finished close the superoneclick

 

( This create a temporary root)( im my case is temporary)

 

5. click menu and on search bar, type cmd, right click cmd.exe and run as administrator.

 

6. on the cmd command prompt, type "cd\program files (x86)/android/android-sdk/platform-tools" without the quote.

 

7. type

adb devices

8. type

adb push rkdump /data/

9. type

adb shell and you will see "#" sign .

10. type

chmod 755 /data/rkdump

*this will make RKDump executable

11. type

/data/rkdump /dev/block/mtdblock5 /sdcard/update.img

this will copy update.img on your sdcard .

 

One question; the update.img is a backup of the firm of my tablet?, can I upload the update image for somebody for tested??

 

thanks a lot.

 

 

 

thanks to user domrad who post the second part I have just writed in thread dumping rom using ADB guide in freaktab webpage.

Thanks for posting your method to dump an Arnova G2 tablet, I did not know Superoneclick was working to obtain temp. root.

The dump of the mdtblock5 partition is actually the backup image that you can use to restore the tablet's firmware.

Feel free to upload your dump, just zip it then use the Upload Attachments feature in the forum.

 

For your information, Aumhur forum user also posted a dump of his Arnova 8b G2 DT: http://www.arctablet.com/blog/forum/arnova-8-g2/original-rom-image-for-8g2-4gb-dual-touch/

Should be the same firmware as the 8bG2 DT 4Gb, but it's always good having another dump.

Thanks Wink

Unfortunately, I think that you can't at the moment as there is no official firmware or dump available for the Arnova 8 G2 4Gb.

I hope that someone is able to provide one in the near future.

Please check back on our forum...

Looks like there are some troubles with the Upload Attachements feature on the forum. When using it on an existing post, it does not support all file type that are supported on a new post (Add Reply). Also it does not confirm and show the file upload attachement on a new post. I'll make sure this get fixed.

Thanks for uploading your firmware dump, I'll check it over the week-end.
