Lightbulb Arnova 10 G2 (RK2918 based tablet)

Hello all

I just bought Archos Arnova 10 G2 few days ago and till now I would say I kinda satisfied with the device. But since we are here on XDA, enjoyment from this device could be even better

I tried to put a custom rom (here) to my device but unfortunatelly I'm not a lucky guy and device didn't boot at all. So I ask uncle Google for help and found this great tool that allowed me to root the tablet easily and put some extra apps into /system/app. I then encounter endless problems with Maket to even get it to work and found a way here (download the attached .zip, copy it to the device and install .apk's in order posted, reboot the device and you have Market and Google apps up and running ). And this is where my problems started to appear...

Market in that .zip is veeery old (v1.82) so I put there new version (3.3.11) and it seems to work well too but just until I try to install some app from Market => FC.
I read something about permisions set wrong or some another component/app is not installed or incompatible with Market 3+ (btw, only version working is 1.82 and 3.3.11 -with problems. Another version give my FC during loading).

So, now to the point I managed to get some feedback from LogCat when Market FC:

Can somebody advice me in which direction should I look to fix these errors?

Or another thing, /system is not RW on this device, so every change I do I have to flash whole ROM again :/
I tried these command in Terminal Emulator but without luck:
Code:
su
mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
Thanks anyone for kick

Regards
Adam

Hi There

I had faced a similar issue this morning. My advise is to install this custom rom and utility 'arctools' to install the google app pack. I did this morning and it worked like a dream.

The link is here

Good luck

Thank for the advice but unfortunatelly I tried put this custom rom to my device for the few times and it just didn't boot (maybe I have some new HW revision?).
But anyway, some guy in the original spanish forum posted updated ROM on page 7 and its working well on my device, only thing missing in RW access on /system

Could you explain what you did with that tool to gain root? Im the thread for the tool it says for step to that I need to "copy the image file into this folder,and rename to wendal.img" What image file do I copy?

I'm not overly concerned about the Market, and I do not want the custom rom that is at arctablet.com because it screws up your storage space among other issues and my tablet work really well right now I just want root. If anyone knows any other ways just to gain root and nothing else it would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,
just DL the official ROM from Arnova, rename update.img to wendal.img and thats it. Then run the Runme.bat with option 1 first and then with option 2. When done, copy wendal_new.img to the root of Arnova internal SD and rename it to update.img before disconnection the USB. After the flash, you should have root (but its just a partial since you cannot write to system parititon :/)

Any idea if this procedure leaves one able to
1) Use marketenabler to access amazon usa &
2) get a root prompt via terminal ??

I was able to use the Amazon Appstore if that's what you're talking about. I also have Root Explorer, Titanium Backup, and Rom Toolbox running and get the SU prompt but haven't tried from a Terminal.

Well I have the R29xxImageTools v2.1, the Rockchip_Batch tools v1.4 and the Setup_google_app.rar file.

I've exploded the original update.img, overlaid system with the 4 subdirs from within the google rar and repacked the image, renamed the wendal_new.img to update.img and reflashed it.

Tablet just sits at arnova splash screen after a yellow recovery message. (this is the same message whether the flash ultimately works or not)

If I don't hack around with the exploded system image, other than what the lua script does itself then the tablet reflashes successfully and comes up, albeit with a non functioning marketplace.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong ??
