Hi call me mad but even through I have no experience in making firmwares for anything,

I'm willing to learn how to do basic patch work for Arnova 7 g2 because theres more bugs with it then I can count and it's feeling more and more like a early beta.

 

If anyone is interested in helping me then I can give you a list of the bugs I've found and you can tell me how difficult they will be to fix.

 

PS: I'm half addressing the admin because he knows how to make firmwares ( EG for arnova 10,8 and 10b ) but I've posted this on the forum because there could be other people who could help aswell.

 

thanks for any help you can give me.

A good starting point is to follow some of the recipes in the Arnova 10 G2 firmware modification thread:

/blog/forum/arnova-10-g2/modifying-the-arnova-10-g2-custom-firmware/

 

Unfortunately, Sowa and myself had some issues in building a firmware for the Arnova 7 G2 using these methods. For now this is all about trial and error, not really an exact science Wink

My Arnova 7 G2 is currently bricked and I need a proper firmware to continue experimenting. Are you able to download the file from this post (http://www.arctablet.com/blog/forum/arnova-8-g2/arnova-8-g2-first-custom-firmware-with-android-market-and-root/#p588) ?

 

Finally, you need to understand that making firmware changes are limited, as we are working mostly on the binary level without the source code for the firmware. This should change soon, as Cyanogenmod 7 (Android 2.3.7) is being adapted on RK2918 devices as it was on older RK2818 tablets (/blog/archos-tablet/preview-release-cm7-android-2-3-market-root-archos-7-htv2/)

Ok 

firstly, yes I can download that file, which I have done and it's now in storage for later use.

secondly, I will read through that thread in a few minuets 

thirdly, ok I understand roughly what you mean, I'm only wanting to change small thing nothing like changing the ui completely ;).

 

I just don't want to completely brick my arnova because it's only 3 days old.
