Hi, I was wondering if anyone has had any joy with custom firmware for the 8b g3?

 

I read that you were looking for an img. of the existing firmware, well I just bought an 8b from maplin and they have posted a link at the bottom of the product page with a firmware update on: http://www.maplin.co.uk/arnova-8-g3-8in-touch-tablet-android-4.0-630087

I know the description says its for an 8, but the product referred to is definitely an 8b.

 

Don't know if this helps? I'm desperate to get the Play store on so any help will be appreciated.

 

Cheers

Flashing the firmware image from Maplin link is probably not a good idea, first I think (by looking at the address where the firmware link resolve on Arnova server) the link is for the Arnova 10 G2. Second thing is don't try to flash an Arnova 8 G3, it's a different tablet model that has different hardware and it would probably break you 8b G3.

I made one weeks ago it had some glitches, I made an update since then, I'm waiting for feedback on it then I'll probably publish the updated custom firmware. If it takes too long, I can eventually send you the file for testing.

Cheers.

Hello,

 

I also have an 8b g3 and I would like to know if you're working on that firmware.

 

When do you think it will be able to download? Thanks!

Anything new to it?

Or still no custom firmware?

8b G3 arrived today, I hope there still will be an CFW.

I love how Arnova doesn't even have the 8b G3 in their Tablet list on their official site -.-

Damnit, got the right (wrong) tablet there.
