Hello, i just bought a arnova 8c G3 tablet. Trying to modify the pixel density i broke the tablet, got an error stating the desktop can't start. I tried reinstalling the firmware, but by accident i installed the firmware for arnova 8 G3.

Now the tablet won't to anything. Dead robot, can't flash, can't use touchscreen, does not charge with charger, only with usb cable, and is always in safe mode. 

What should i do? I can't install a new firmware, i can't do anything.

If someone could help please?

Thanks

well that is the problem. i can't install any firmware. the tablet won't start, except if it is plugged in the usb port. the recovery option does not work, it freezes for a few minutes then shuts down. when the tablet starts, it is in a continuous loop "calibrating touch screen, please do not touch". 

i can't do nothing to it. i tried using the firmware tool available on this site, but no success. nothing that i have tried works.

is there something else i can do? or is it dead and unrecoverable?

Recovery mode should work because the tablet is shut down then... When you connect it to your pc (Volume - button pressed in), you need to go to your device manager and install RK29 driver to the "unknown device". The left block in RKBatchTools should turn green then and you should be able to flash it(use Restore instead of upgrade).
