    But it tooks 10min for loading to the home screen.
    I decided for flashing it to 1.5c. this was succesfull bit then i read in the discription that you must erase idb en install the loader to. So i did this again.
    Now it wont boot anymore. And when i put the rom in mask rom mode it wont erase idb and test device fails also.
    Even when i take other usb and cables or take the other flashtool with original rom.
    Is this tablet fully bricked or have i a little chance for recover it.

    it's been so long since i have messed with one of these , try the other flash tool and use the update .img from the arnovatech site . as long as you get the green light when you connect the device you should be good . and buddy I have two 10g2's at home .if you cannot get it working let me know I will send you one of mine to give to your dad ok .no charge you can have it

    sorry but we had some issues and most of the roms got wiped from our server we have been trying to get them uploaded again .

    if your going to use the 1.5 rom you might as well go with the last version and do the gingercomb rom for your tab ,it's great !!!

    i will give you a link to it in a hour or so i have a few things to do and i'll get back to you .

    Cant find the download for "Arnova 10 G2 Custom ROM by Finless Version 1.5"

    The new ROM is just an update for APP Injector and the latest Google store, etc.
    NO ROM changes.

    The ROM download is below and includes the new App Injector Package. Note file name is now 1.5c


    _______________________________________

    OK folks the wait is over! Been quite a few weeks getting everything together but my 1.5 ROM for the Arnova 10 G2 is done! THIS IS ONLY for the 10 G2! THIS IS NOT for the 10b G2 or any other model like resistive screen ,etc!
    NOTE! ALWAYS REBOOT AFTER THE FIRST BOOT FLASHING MY ROM! You may have no SD Card showing, No Audio, or other issues after first boot after a flash. So after first boot, reboot!

    I have to say this has been a labor of love by many people!

    Now before I go into what this ROM is, I want to answer a few things for some folks asking I put other stuff in this ROM. This is a total debloat for TOP performance! If any of you want me to make additions like adding Fenice57's bluetooth, 3g, etc, let me know and if there is enough demand I will make a derivative ROM with those added. Realize however the BT and 3G drivers will NOT make all BT and 3G sticks work!!! Only those which the drivers support. Best I can offer to those that want it.

    So what is this ROM anyway? Bottom line it is all about performance! To find out more:
    1) Read the README.TXT file in the ROM kit! I explain a lot in there.
    2) Watch the video I made explaining what my 1.5 ROM is, the benefits and reasons, and instructions on how to get the most out of it using Petrus' APP Injector!

    Here is the video download:
    VIDEO -> Arnova 10G2 Finless 1.5 ROM Overview and Instructions (91 megs)

    Here is a summary of 1.5 taken from the README:
    Features in 1.5 "performance" ROM:
    1) This has all the same features of my 1.4 ROM. FAST and REAL ext4 file system, 1gig app space, full root,etc.
    2) This is a total debloat of the ROM. All apps, etc are removed except a file explorer as you have to have that to do anything later. Google Play (Market) is also NOT installed. See below as I supply in this kit a APP injector. The reason for this is file system fragmentation! Having a ROM with a bunch of stuff you do not want in it, you remove them and then install others and this leaves the file system a mess. Especially on NAND memory devices! Now you can install what you want after flashing and keep a nice clean file system
    3) A full "settings" menu system! This is something many have asked for. Special thanks to Miklaus for making this new settings.apk. Now you get accounts and sync settings and all the stuff that has been missing from Arnova ROMs.
    4) A new WPA_Supplicant that will allow you to connect WiFi to Ad-hoc networks. Thank the Nextbook guys for figuring this one out!
    5) This has the latest Arnova Kernel and /system files!!!! This came from the recently released Arnova ROM for the "philly" 10G2 tablet from February 2012. Why the hell Arnova has not updated the regular 10 G2 I do not know. But this kernel has many fixes in it for problems that existed before.
    6) In this ROM kit is Petrus' APP Injector. This was written specifically to support my 1.5 ROM. What this does is after flashing you can now "inject" Google Play, Google add-on apps, Stock Arnova apps, Arnova "add-on" apps and the stock "Philly" apps if you have a philly 10G2 and want that stuff. You get to pick and choose what you want and not get stuff you do not want! It properly injects this stuff CLEANLY either in /system/app or data/app! A lot of testing went into this and where best to inject these apps for performance!
    7) This has my clear status bar at the top! However if you want the old status bar back contact me on FeakTab and I will give you the files and tell you how to put it back.
    8) I have removed the stupid Arnova "wizard" that causes the screen calibration to show up every time you do a reset. It is actually not removed I simply renamed it from Wizard.apk to Wizard.aps. This thing is really not needed. BUT removing it also stopped the "setup wizard" to also not show up on first boot. Big deal really. If you want all this back, simply open a "root" file explorer and go to /system/app and rename Wizard.aps to Wizard.apk. You now have all that back.

    Everything I have removed can be put back using Petrus' APP Injector! So I am not going to list everything removed. Trust me IT WAS A LOT OF CRAP Run his App Injector and see the list for yourself
    In the kit is a NEW folder called APP Injector.
    Please watch my video if you can’t figure out how to use it.
    But here are QUICK instructions:
    To use app injector you must do the following
    1) In the kit is a folder called App Injector. Copy the 2 files appinjector.apk and package.zip from that to the ROOT of your sdcard either external or internal if you do not have a physical sdcard.
    2) On the tablet open your sdcard using the file manager. Tap on appinjector.apk to install it.
    3) Run app injector. If you copied package.zip properly to the root directory of your sdcard you should be presented with a list of apps.
    4) Click the box next to each app you want to inject.
    5) Then at the top just tap the button "Install selected applications". It will then inject all the apps you selected!
    6) At this point you can uninstall appinjector if you like or leave it and later come back and install other apps!
    NOTE: If you click on an app that has already been installed, it WILL overwrite and reinstall the app.


    Credits:
    Special credits to the 1.5 development people:
    1) Petrus for the APP Injector. Without his work here things would be a lot harder for you guys to put apps back on this ROM and keep it FAST. He spent a lot of time to make this work and trust me... I AM PICKY. Awesome Job Petrus!
    2) Miklaus for his very COOL "system settings" APK. Miklaus is the MAN for reverse engineering this! THANK YOU Miklaus! I know a lot of others will love this too!
    3) Fenice57 for his still awesome performing ext4 file system
    4) Daman for his boot screens and super fast bootanimation. So you know, Daman's boot Animation is only 2 screens and very FAST. I tested and it only slows boot time by 2 seconds!


    OK so enough jibber jabber.... Here is the download:

    ROM -> Arnova 10G2 Finless Version 1.5 ROM (200 megs)

    Again here is the video download link as well in case some missed it above.
    VIDEO -> Arnova 10G2 Finless 1.5 ROM Overview and Instructions (91 megs)


    I hope you 10G2 owners enjoy this ROM. Please feel free to provide feedback.

    Bob

    P.S. Sorry my video is in English (American). I can't speak other languages well enough to be comfortable doing a video with them. If I tried it would be a mess and a 2 hour video because I speak so slow
    I now this thread is old, but just picked up a Arnova 10 G2 and would like to root it and make it more useable. Its way to slow the way I is. Thank

    Still 1gb ram after Finless V1.5 removed

    Because of a battery issue I had to go back from Finless V1.5 to factory settings. I noticed after that I still had 1gb of ram rather than the 512mb that came with the tablet. I don't know why and I don't care if it is real or virtual ram. It makes it much easier to install apps. and I don't get the ole notice"not enough room." Now I am working on a power port issue which I read is common. It connects and then disconnects with the plug is moved. Anyone out there come up with simple solution for this?

    Hello friends,
    I have Finless V1.5 rom on board,
    I want to install the recovery so you can flash any rom newer, but the tablet does not go into fastboot or with the combination vol-and power nor with the adb command, so basically it starts normally.
    I also tried to put the file in the root folder of the update, the update is detected, but once again does not install anything.
    how do I go out? there is a method?
    thanks....excuse for the english but is translated from italian with google
