I checked the Arnovatech.com web site and they are not listing a update.img for this model.  However if someone has one please post it.  If it does not exist then if someone is willing to dump all the IMGs using ADB I will have a go at seeing if I can root this rom.  If it's like the 10 G2 I should be able to do it quickly!

I have a 9 G2 as of yesterday and would be willing to do this if you can point me at some instructions etc, this is my first Android device and I have never used ADB but I understand what it does. Have Linux and Windows available, fluent in both. Are we talking about just dumping a dd image?

 

Already installed market as per the instructions in thiis forum. Don't have a terminal or SSH etc tho.

Yes please dump the update.img image or dump each of the images (boot, recovery, system, etc).  It does not matter.  I just need them to make a ROM.

You have some details on the firmware dumping procedure here:

http://wiki.archosfans.com/index.php?title=Dump_your_Home_Tablet_rom_and_create_a_custom_rom

 

How do you start adb on your computer, do you get an error ?

Is adb enabled on the tablet ?

--EDIT--

im into this device whether its the correct one or not it seems to dissapear when i unplug mine, but permissions are restricting me it says permision denied

abd -s 0123456789ABCDEF pull /System /C:UsersAlexDocumentsARNOVA 9 G2 SYSTEM

abd: permission denied

Most details are on the tutorial link I gave you:

Get rkdump binary then use adb push to send rkdump to the tablet.

then from adb shell, chmod 777 rkdump

then run rkdump on the proper partitions according to /proc/mtd output

FYI superone click gives you SU access but you are not fully rooted because /system is read only.  I truely am hoping you figure out how to get it working so we can get a rom dump.

You need to push rkdump to a writable place when you can then execute the binary.

If I remember right, /data/local should do.

You will need to be root (temp. root is OK) to execute rkdump.
