I hope you can help me. I purchased an arnova 8 G2 and noticed some of the settings functions were missing. so i searched on archos.com for a firmware upgrade and found nothing, went on google and found http://www.arctablet.com/blog/featured/
not knowing what i was doing, i thought it was a normal update, i went on an did it.
now my tablet wont boot up and stays on the boot screen. it just says arnova.
I noticed from the thread below you helped this gentlemen out.
can you help me? please?
I have tried the following :
use rockchip tool 1.4 - my pc wont pick up the arnova, driver cant be installed (win 7).and when i load the fw, it says load error.
i cant even find the proper driver!
i think before i installed the first firmware, i change the usb to debugging mode. the archos says that might be causing the unrecognition of the tablet
I think james (above) and I are in the same boat!
please help me..i beg you
Subject: ARNOVA 8G2 Custom ROM
Hi Newbie here,
I had my 8g2 for 3 days , found this site and have had a lot of fun flashing the custom roms, Im not a novice to flashing but i am a novice with Android
I tried to update to the AN8G2_ext3f, followed the instructions but it stuck on the "ARNOVA" boot screen, after 1 hour of this I tried to reboot it, no joy, so I tried to do SD card install via the "boot menu", tried system restore.
All my own fault, lol, but thats the thrill of flashing i spose.
Im having trouble getting into the "Boot Menu" screen now, anyone got any suggestions?
Re-flash the ROM. Do not forget to remove the SD-flash before flashing.
