I have an Arnova 9 G2 running Ice-Cream Sandwich. I have very limited requirements on it - princially to read PDFs. I would also like to put The Visual Cert Exam Lite App which is only (I think) available on Google Play.

I don't really want to do a firmware + Google Play update as my firmware is already ICS, so there doesn't seem to be much advantage, and I'm concerned about shafting a device that I've had for three weeks.

Can Apps be installed by hand? Any suggestions gratefully received. Is the firmware upgrade process that is on this site so much, as safe and easy as it looks?

Thanks,

M

the procedure is easy to fallow, if you do something wrong you can recover the tablet using rockchip tool.
you can search the app on the web, if you can find it you can put it on your tablet, and install it

I have downloaded it from Google Play for you:

http://www.arctablet.com/users/forum/VCE_Mobile_Lite_6.6.11.apk

You can open the link from your tablet and when the download is finished, just click on the file and install it. It is also available on the web, but I don't want to get you virusses and be responsible for that, so I just went to the Play Store myself and grabbed it for you. Laugh

The firmware installation procedure is located here:

Though we can't give 100% guarantee, we should be able to help you out if you run into problems. Smile

Wow,

 

I am often struck by the kindness of strangers on the internet. Thank you both for your helpful comments.

 

I'll try the download and go from there.

 

Thanks,
