Hello,

I have just bought an Arnova 10b to watch films on and generally mess around on during a 3 hour long train journey to see my misses as she just moved for her new job.

Didn't want anything too fancy as I said won't be getting used a huge deal so I figured for £120 I couldn't go too wrong with the Arnova 10b so far I am very happy with it, has a bad viewing angle as many of you have said but that does not bother me as I shall be just putting it on some form of stand while I watch a movie.

I am however struggling to find out how to get the market on it - I found one lead but it left me with "Only works on eclaire" message. Can anyone point me in the right direction, I have just updated the Arnova to the latest firmware off the Archos website.

Thank you all very much.

Also - after reading many reviews I always like to still ask.
Any good points and bad points I should know about from you (Actual every day uses of this device not just a reviewer) thank you.

Other than that so far I love my new toy and every complaint I have seen so far I have thought to myself "A cheap 10inch tablet what where you expecting? Of course building quality was going to be lesser than that of a galaxy tab...."

Be sure to carefully follow all the steps including the "market fix."

Thank you very much.

Does this work on the 10b 8gb? :)

The above arctablet ROM does allow the 10b to install the android market but the number of available apps is severely limited. Also, don't expect to get flash with their froyo ROM.

Go to this thread instead and get the 10b CM7 ROM:

viewtopic.php?f=80&t=57832

Then you'll at least get the flash working. As soon as I figure out how to get the android market on it, I'll post back.

P.S. I know this thread is old but I just want to contribute and help others who might get stuck with the Arnova 10b.

Caffe - the market place is not severely limited. You can download any app you want. As long as you follow the instructions correctly when installing the froyo ROM and the market fix all apps are listed and are downloadable and can be installed.

The other ROM the cyanogen install is very suspect and should not be tried it is bugged seriously.
