So, here it goes the whole process "step by step"...
1 Be sure to copy all your personal files (Music, Photos, Videos, documents) from the tablet to the PC because the process will erase them.
2 Download the "Rockchip Flashing tool" and the "kasty-arn9g2-40-04.zip" as shown here, and unzip them on your desktop
3 Plug the charger to your tablet and connect it to the PC with the USB cable
4 Turn off the tablet
5 (as shown here)
Execute the flashing tool "RKBatchTool.exe" on your computer (On Windows Vista or Windows Seven, you will have to Right Click on the program and select "Run as Administrator")
6 Hold pressed the MENU button
7 Insert a paperclip in the RESET pinhole and keep it pressed
8 When you hear that Windows detect a new device, release the RESET pinhole, but keep pressed the MENU button a few seconds longer
9 Release the MENU button. Now your tablet should be in "Recovery mode"
10 Now the computer should show it has found a new USB device and prompt for a device driver. According with your operating system, select the appropriate driver in the "driver directory" from the "Rockchip Flash Tool" folder.
11 Once the Driver are installed, the square with "1" on Rockchip Batch tool should become green.
12 Using the button in the top right area of the application. Select the "update.img" file present in the "kasty-arn9g2-40-04" Folder.
13 Push the "RESTORE" button and wait till the flash process is complete.
14 The Tablet should now update and reboot
15 DONE!! Enjoy your new ICS device!

As explained in Rockchip flasher page you should normally use Upgrade button, but pushing Restore button is better as it does a partial format of the tablet before flashing.

This is very important step:

 

10). Now the computer should show it has found a new USB device and prompt for a device driver. According with your operating system, select the appropriate driver in the "driver directory" from the "Rockchip Flash Tool" folder.

(This is from pampurio's post...) 

 

I think this is the step where you make a mistake.

 

Read slow and carefull pampurio's post, no 91, it is on the top of this page and do as it s written.  Can't miss...

I had problem with this too, downloaded both rockchip flashers and updated, with rockchip 1.29's drivers for vista, I have read lots and confirm for recovery mode is menu, reset and let go menu, at this point I updated with rockchip 1.29 drivers and flashed using restore with rockchip too, and can't even being to tell you how cool it is to finally have ICS on 9 G2 512mb.

The display just reflects the memory left to the system, nothing wrong here I believe.

First post for me.

Had mega problems trying to put my arnova 9 g2 into flash mode. After a good google session i found this info out. Tried it and it work for me. A lot easier than trying to flash.

How to update the software of your Arnova
1. Download the update file for your device « update.img ». You can save it to the desktop of your computer for example.
2. Connect the USB cable to your Arnova and your computer so that the ARNOVA is seen as an external hard drive (as normal).
3. Copy the « update.img » to the root of the device. Do not place it into any folder of the Arnova, just to the root level of the device.
4. Unplug your device safely as usual using the green « disconnect safely » arrow in the system tray.
5. The Arnova will find the update automatically and display a message box offering to install this new firmware. Before tapping on "Install", you need to connect the charger/adapter DC-IN to your device. The Arnova will find the update automatically and display a message box offering to install this new firmware. Before tapping on "Install", make sure you connect the charger/adapter to the DC-IN of your device.
Important warning: Upgrading your device's software will reset all your settings (including the WiFi settings).
6. Once the firmware update process is completed, your Arnova tablet will automatically restart. You must then go though the installation wizard. Not only will this process allow you to configure the basic settings of your player.

 

Hope this is ok to post on here.

Hello!

 

I have a problem that I have not seen in any other threads... I have managed to successfully install the drivers for RK29 and to put my tablet into flash mode - no problems. Rockship Batch Tool v1.5 recognised the unit with a green number 1 (and 8-4 below it) - no problem here either... Loading the Firmware (40-04 version) and when I press Restore, it starts the process completeing the Lower Format 100% but when it gets to <Layer 8-4> Prepare IDB Start it stops and after some time it just comes up with an error Prepare IDB Fail and that is it!...    Tried to use the stock dump file to restore back to 2.3 but same problem and now my device will not power up at all.... so total FAIL in here I guess...   Any ideas how to repair this??

 

Pls Help!

 

Thanks!

Hi, 

 

Thanks for that and I have managed to Erase IDB according to the instructions in there... Now when trying to "Restore" the system it goes past that point with "Prepare IDB to start" and a couple of others successfully, but stuck on "Wait for Loader to start".. 

 

I have noticed that in the topic you suggested it says to press [Run] after erasing the IDB, but when I do that it says"bootloaderFile is not Existed" - although I have copied all the settings bang on the same as in the picture...  Am I missing some important file to be able to proceed?

 

Let me know pls...

Hello,

 

Just a quick update...    IT WORKED!!!!!!!    I have nearly lost all the hope but it appears that sometimes you just have to try a couple of times before it does the job.. Now I can enjoy the fully operational ICS system!!!!

 

Just to summarise - what was happening (in case if somebody will face the same problem):

 

1. I could not flash my device as it was stuck at the "Preparing IDB to start" stage during flashing with Rockchip Batch Tool v1.5

2. When I have clicked on [Restore] it has performed the Lower format, but again stuck on the same message and FAILED the flashing process - also the device stopped working (Unable to power up - bricked!) - I could still see the device connecting to the computer though...

 

-----> First I had to re-install my RK29 device/driver (computer was re-booted) in order to be able to connect the tablet again.

----> Then I have erased the IDB with the RKAndroidTool v1.29 according to the instructions here:

http://www.arctablet.com/blog/forum/archos-arnova-childpad/problems-with-update-from-4-0-4-to-4-11-custom-firmware/

 ----> After successfull Erasing the IDB, I have used the [Restore] function in Rockchip Batch Tool v1.5 using the ICS 40-04 image file... It has stuck at the "Waiting for Loader to start" stage at this time and FAILED (which is when I panicked a bit again), but when I have unplugged and plugged the device again and reconnected with the Rockchip Batch Tool v1.5 and performed the same task again - this time IT JUST WORKED!!!

 

So for all those who struggle - Keep the faith, and keep trying!  The system file IS working and both flashers ARE doing their jobs... Good Luck!!!

 

PS - Thanks to all arctablet.com blog users for the help in updating my device!!!
