Hello all :)

I just bought Archos Arnova 10 G2 few days ago and till now I would say I kinda satisfied with the device.

I tried to put a custom rom (http://www.arctablet.com/blog/forum/arnova-10-g2/arnova-10-g2-first-custom-firmware-with-android-market-and-root/) 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 http://www.slatedroid.com/topic/19808-rk29xx-imagetools-v21/ 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 http://www.htcmania.com/showpost.php?p=3192381&postcount=103 (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

We Archos /system not yaffs2, it cramfs (compressed, read-only)
All changes must be done in system.img, obtained by rk29xx-imagetools-v2.1
You can apply for work with NewTuxFlash.exe systwm.img.
Then gather ROM and install it.

Thanks for reply. I found this how-to http://www.slatedroid.com/topic/14790-step-by-step-rooting-flashing-instructions/page__view__findpost__p__131031 but I'm just confused about point 13 and 14 (change user/group to 0/0). Where can I change this? Or is there a command for this in adb?

Thanks

One question, if I maybe convert system.img from cramfs to yaffs2, will it work on our devices? I mean if the chip can handle different filesystem. Thanks

All changes in system.img I do with NewTuxFlash. (Windows prog.)
There you can give the right to appoint user / group, delete, add, replace the files.
When you save, we have made ÔÇïÔÇïsystem.img. German language programs only.
Good luck!

P.S. See more here http://wiki.archosfans.com/index.php?ti ... custom_rom

I already struggle with NewTuxFlash tool, but it's not very user-friendy for me since it's in german which I don't speak. Anyway I opened a translator and tried to find some button to change rights but...nothing :(

Do you think you can, if you have time, do some short how-to about how to change this rights in the program? It will be much appreciated by me and for sure by somebody else too :) Thank you in advance ;)

Thx for the link, I will fire up my virtual Ubuntu box when get home and try that...

P.S. I managed to capture /system from running tablet via "yaffs explorer" and put it into update.img via rk29xx-imagetools-v2.1 (commented few lines in lua script to not cramfs it again)... do you thing it will boot? Well it shoud not hurt anything since I didn't touch recovery.img, boot.img or kernel.img...in worst case RK BatchTool is my friend...ehm, right? :)

I do not say no to any German in English, only the Google translator.
I apologize for the error.
The main can be understood from the figure

If you want to add a file to an image, I find it to WE, copy and paste in the folder (Paste file)
