No that is not the way that you install the Official Android market on the Arnova 10G2.

You need to install a custom firmware as this tablet is not officially certified by Google so that is why you do not have any Google Market or any of the Google services like You Tube, Gmail, Google Plus, Maps etc.

Please see link for firmware installation

http://www.arctablet.com/blog/forum/arn ... -and-root/

I have the installed this firmware on my tablet from the UK and can confirm it works, It is a first release of the firmware and is been tested by the firmware makers and obviously the people who have installed it. So the firmware will be improved as time goes on.

yes this firmware has killed two of the philly tablets that I have known of so If you have one of these then you might end up with a brick.

Here an alternative approach is described without using special firmware http://www.arctablet.com/blog/forum/arn ... -firmware/ . It sounds safer and if you try it, please tell us if it works or bricks...
