Good job on this firmware =D>

I am curious to know how you built this firmware.
I had a look with Wendal RK2918 tools (https://github.com/wendal/teclast_tools) they did not work on my Arnova 80 G2 dump, probably because of format or offsets problems on the image file contents.

Thanks.

Thank you.
I had a little experience to create a ROM for the Archos 7c HT (rk2818).
From Wendal RK2918 tools I've used only AFPTool.
He excellent unpacked dump update.img.
In turn, the dump received by this statement: http://wiki.archosfans.com/index.php?ti ... custom_rom
Maybe this will help.

No, it is still another device. In any case, the firmware from 10G2 to 8G2 does not work.

Just out interest, does the market place work for anyone?
I followed the instructions very carefully, and the installation was succsessful. I can acsess the marketplace without any issues. However, when i search for apps or games, it onlys shows two or three apps.
Did i do something wrong?

Thank you Sowa for this very nice christmas present. Install went fine. I have root access and also access to the market!
If you don't see all applications in the market, try to clear the cache of the market app in Settings.

Happy New Year!

Really thanks alot for the Custom rom with market - it works great! :)
I do have w major questions:
1) Is there any possibility to get native google contacts and calendar app (as selectable on mobile phones)
in the firmware?
2) can i somehow confire the identification of my tab in that way that i can download all
apps from market place? (e.g. at some very simple apps it says that my device is not compatible)
Thanking you very much in advance for help

best regards,
shane

I installed the custom ROM and aside from having to re-install a couple of apps, all went well. I have noticed that the boot time has increased quite a bit as well as the shut down time. But no big deal.

I had no problem locating, downloading and installing a weather widget from the "Market" and I now have root. So I think Sowa deserves a big A+ for his effort!
