Hi all, I'm struggling to get my Arnova 9 G2 running again. It was running custom firmware installed via arctools about 5months ago and yesterday just got stuck in a boot loop (when you turn on the arnova screen is shown, the screen goes black and arnova screen comes back up in a loop)
Looking through the forum I have installed the Rockchip programme and tried to get into recovery mode on the device... I have tried:
Reset+Menu (15sec) then release menu then reset
Reset+menu (15sec) then release reset then menu
menu+reset (15sec) then release menu then reset
Menu+reset (15sec) then release reset then menu
and the same using the esc/home/power buttons with no luck.
I've tried with power in/power out/usb in/usb out and combinations of power/usb in out with no luck.
When connected to my computer rockchip device 1 box flashes pink and then disappears when the arnova logo disappears (Before starting the loop again). It does try and install but think that once the connection is lost (when the device starts the boot loop i am unable to get the drivers installed)
The closest thing I have had is when I press power/esc/menu for 10sec and the recovery menu appears. However there is an error about a missing file in E: and the only option i can select is reboot that then starts the loop again. If i connect to the rockchip tool the device appears as a mass storage only (i.e. no way of installing the drivers) the device 1 box is pink, It says switch successful but then errors when i try and upgrade or restore.
I have tried this on a Windows Xp 32bit, windows 7 32bit and windows 7 64bit and used rockchip 1.4, 1.5 and 1.7 all with the same issues.
I think that about covers it and hope all of that makes sense... Is there anything else I can do or is the device ready for the bin?
Thanks in advance
You can use Rockchip Batch Tool v1.5 with the Arnova 9 G2.
From the device1 box in pink color, you can try clicking the Switch button in Rockchip batch tool, it should then turn green.

many thanks for the quick response.
I have just tried again using v1.5. I have put the device into recovery mode (By pressing power/esc/menu for 10sec) and connected to my PC. It is installed as a mass storage device and showing pink in the connected devices box (with 5-8-4) under it.
I click Switch and get a message saying switch done success <1> Fail <0>
The box stays pink
If I try the reset+menu the box just flashes pink when the arnova screen displays and then goes grey (signalling the device is disconnected)
Is there anything else I can try?
