Great Help, but the Procedure for entering Flashing/download mode on the Arnova 9 G2 is not correct.. U must Press and Hold both 'Menu' & 'Pwr' buttons, then press reset button for several seconds. Screen remains blank and the host PC will indicate New hardware found. Then install your drivers.#

Hope this helps.

Hi all, I need your help.

I have an Arnova 7bg2 and I installed the correct firmware for this model using the rockchip flasher tool. The update was successful however I've noticed that you cant exit certain apps. For instance, if you go into the gallery or access the camera, theres absolutely no way to suspend the app. As a result I've been forced to turn off my arnova each time 🙁

Does anyone else have this problem? Am I doing something wrong?
Thanks

I flashed my arnova with this firmware (file size is approx 172mb) update.AR7bG2.cramfs.2G.MorkaMod.v1.15

The version is 2.3.1 (model number A70HT3). This is what it states when I look at the details under the device settings. Also I've noticed its not possible to bring the notification bar up by dragging from the top of the screen.

Unfortunately, this firmware (Morkamod) is not maintained anymore by it's author.
If you want Google Play support on your tablet you can try our firmware, which is based on default Arnova firmware. http://www.arctablet.com/assets/firmware/Arnova7G2/kasty-ez_arn7bg2cap-23-112.zip
This firmware is for Arnova 7b G2 capacitive model only, it won't work on the resistive Dual Touch (DT model)

Thanks, its done the job.

One further question, do you know if its possible to enable password protection on the lock screen for this firmware? I can't find a setting for this and I'm not sure if this issue has been dealt with elsewhere.

Cheers

Try to flash again the firmware using Restore rather than Upgrade button in Rockchip tool.

Root access isn't needed, Rockchip flasher is a low level tool that works before the OS starts.
