I got an Arnova 9 G3 from Maplin as well and I have the same memory issues as described above. The device is saying it has total space of 2.06GB rather than the expected 4GB. The screen is similar to above. Also i put some pdf files on an external card and it appears to take up space in the internal storage but no files are present? When connected to the PC the Arnova shows up as a 2.05GB device. Any ideas would be appreciated

This is normal, as exelletor previous state in post #26, part of the 4 Gb are used by the Android system and applications.

Also, there are probably few megabytes (Mb) taken by the Arnova demo apps and media files (videos and musics) that can be removed without problem.

Regarding your PDF on SDcard problem, I'm not sure how the tablet "mounts" the Sdcard, I'll need to have a look...

As exelletor stated in a post from above the rest of space is reserved for the system and other stuff.
3.7 Total space
2Gb space accesible for the user
1.7 Reserved for the system and apps, recoveryes.

Guys,

Using Arctools won't help for the moment.

Google Play (Android Market) support for the Arnova 9 G3 (and other G3s) should be released soon, we'll announce it on our forum.

Cheers.

Any idea when? 🙂

I can't commit to any date, but I'll should buy a device when it's available in France, probably in May. There may be a custom firmware release by other developers before then.

Anyway, you should see posts in the Arnova G3 forum as soon as a solution for Google Play/Android Market support is ready.

Cheers.

As far as I know, it probably won't happen, at least that's what Archos CEO said in a recent press conference.

Our only option is custom firmwares or Android Market sideloading (using this method or similar, with variable results).

Excuse my ignorance, I presume by certified, you mean that as the tablet has appslib app installer, there is no way that google play store will be officially launched exclusivly for the arnova range ? If this is the case, will arctools be updated to add the market for the new range?

A device certified by Google means the default firmware include Google Play / Android Market and other Google Apps (Gmail, Youtube...). Archos created Appslib application as a replacement Market because their first tablets were not certified by Google. Actual Archos tablets (Archos G9 or Archos 70b IT) are certified but that's still not the case on Arnova G2, and probably won't be for Arnova G3 as I said.

Google Play/Market support will come from unoficial sources, such as independent developers, such as Arctablet Wink It will be installed either thru Arctools or thru the use of a custom firmware. You'll just need to be patient until we or someone else work on that...

Guys can some of you try this ?
download gapps from here http://www.mediafire.com/?00eexe043ysdbq8
-unrar the zip file, and copy the system folder to the arnova (sd card)
- install them in this order
- GoogleServicesFramework
- OneTimeInitializer
- SetupWizard
- Talk
- Gmail
- GoogleLoginService
- YouTube
- Phonesky

Restart your tablet, and go to Gmail, and add an account, if it works, you should be able to use also Play but you will get an error on the payed apps.

Excellent, I'm happy to try this, but the archive seems to be missing Gmail and Youtube apk's.
