I just got it yesterday and I'm also looking for google play. Probably it is still too new. I'll wait and see.

Unfortunately you probably won't be able to help much, dump method using Linux is the one that works best on Arnova Android 4.0 ICS based systems.

Actually, I had exactly the same problem. I thought I did something wrong. What you have to do is let it loop a few times (about one minute) after looping 3-4 times you will have a responsive OK button and everything works fine. Also touchscreen works normally withough weird calibration and stuff. Give it a go, just wait a little while a press OK.

 

I'm using the pad for a few days now and it never auto restarted.

 

Hope it works out.

They should cover it, the tablet is not usable and it's not like a dead pixel problem (which is not always covered).

As punicajack said, it maybe worth letting the calibration go for a few rounds or trying to push the reset button with a paperclip.

Finally, we can try to dump the firmware (it does not matter if the tablet does not operate) so I build a firmware that you can reflash. I did that and saved a friend's Arnova 8b DT G2 this way.
