Does anyone know of anybody working on a new firmware for the Arnova 10 G2 now that the source code for ICS has been released? I would happily test it on my device and offer feedback if possible :-)

Hey check this link http://androidcommunity.com/chip-maker-rockchip-claims-worlds-first-android-4-0-ics-tablet-20111125/ :)
It seems that first ICS powered tablet from Rockchip will be available soon. I know I saw somewhere that one guy already asked Arnova about ICS official ROM and they reply to him that they are "not able to provide such information" :)
So do you guys think in case Arnova will not port ICS, community will handle it?
I secretly hope so :)

Wow wow this looks awesome!

This surely is the RK2918 running Ice Cream Sandwich, I think that probably means that the whole Arnova G2 series can get the Ice Cream Sandwich firmware update within a month from now.

Don't be too positive on that. 8)

Hi guys,
tablet with ICS was officially announced by Rokchip http://www.rock-chips.com/index.php?do=news&id=135.
So around Christmas we can maybe have ROM dump from that device :)

Or maybe somebody already working on ICS port? Don't be shy and let us know! ;)

Check some of my latest Rockchip RK2918 ICS videos: http://armdevices.net/category/chip-provider/rockchip/

I think it's up to Archos, Rockchip to make a bit more work, fully optimize it so it's smooth and stable, then release the G2 firmware.

To me it seems like we should be really happy if we get ICS before the 3rd quarter of this year, to be honest.

Likely February or March, I think Archos is ramping up the Arnova G2 line and it's very successful I think.
