    Arnova 9 G2 Custom ROM by Finless Version 1.3

    UPDATE 2/1/2012. I have updated the 9G2 firmware with Loader 2.08. This will solve some of the formatting issues some people had. e.g. on reboot into recovery system formatting data for instance might fail. Loader 2.08 seems to have solve that.
    SO IF YOU HAVE A FORMATTING ERROR, please make sure you check the box in the flash tool for the Loader.


    OK folks... My new ROM for the 9 G2. It's version 1.3.
    Big thanks to Damo for making me a cool boot screen. I hope you like it.

    Features:
    1) Google Market latest version 3.4.4 pre-installed and ready to use!
    This includes a working Google Calendar and Contacts sync.
    Also includes Google Gmail, and News / Weather. All of these are up to date!
    No post updates required for Google apps for now until Google updates them.
    2) 1GB off app install space (the max possible). Stock ROM only has 255mb
    Testers are saying the system is MUCH faster now
    3) Full root as /system was converted from Cramfs to EXT3 file system PROPERLY BLOCKED!
    4) Added space in /system to allow "root" apps to install there (200 megs)
    5) Latest up to date SU and Superuser.apk installed
    6) Root permissions granted
    7) ADB and USB debugging enabled by default
    8) 3G USB stick support added.

    Notes:
    1) This is for the Arnova 9 G2 ONLY. Do not try to use this on any other model. You will brick your tablet otherwise. Stay tuned I will be releasing ROMs for the other Arnova’s soon!

    2) If you have never flashed one of my ROMs before, you cannot just copy files over to the SDCard. You must use the flashing tool I provide in my ROM kit. No exceptions. This will require you to install drivers on your PC. In my kit I have tested and supplied drivers for Win32 and 64.

    3) This ROM has been tested by others so we know it works.

    4) Market issues. Market issue "may" still exist. This is common on tablets that are not really supported by Google as a registered device. Most users have no issues but sometimes there can be, The 2 issues that seem to arise when your FIRST TIME try to use the Market are:

    A) Cannot logon; "Cannot establish a reliable data connection"
    I have tried to recreate this and troubleshoot this. My belief if in fact this happens sometimes when Google servers are doing something or something is going on with them. WHen I had this happen once I simply waited a while and it worked later. So I cannot help too much here. My only suggestion to try is this
    a) Install a root file manager like root explorer or ES file manager (enable root access for them)
    b) Go in with the file manager and delete /data/misc/imei/imei or data.dat which ever one exists

    B) Limited apps listed; I have reproduced this and know how to recreate it and fix it! This has to do (I beleive) that after a factory reset or a flash the tablet creates a ID based on some other IDs and a random key generator. Sometimes this ID Google does not like. So we have to clear that and reboot.
    YOU DO NOT EVER NEED TO REFLASH OR DO A FACTORY RESET TO FIX THIS!!!!
    DO the following
    a) Again using a file manager that has root access go in and delete the follow folders completely
    com.android.vending (not com.applib.vending!)
    com.android.vending.updater
    com.google.android.gm
    com.google.android.gsf
    b) Reboot and do nothing else but run the Market. YOu should get a prompt asking you to accept the Google terms of service. If you did not you did something wrong. Do it again. If you do get the prompt, accept and now the Market should work fully with TONS of apps showing up.

    OK so thats it.... I hope you enjoy my new ROM. Please feel free to give feedback, etc.

    Here is the download from OUR local server! No pop ups, adds, SPAM. etc... That’s why we built this place. ROMs should be easily accessed with no BS.

    Update!

    UPDATE!

    OK so we got the boot screen orientation wrong on this release of the 9G2. Wont happen again

    Very sorry to those of you that installed and ran into this. We do our best to make sure the ROM is correct but since we do not have a 9G2 it's impossible to test. I am building the ROM 100% with scripts so there should be no errors in the ROM code but things like a boot screen wrong can happen.

    It's fixed. Use the download link above and note the new file name is
    arnova9g2_v1_3c_market.zip


    This is so you know you have the correct one and not the old one.

          Download link is dead

          Hey Finless. The download link in this thread (1.3c finless for 9 G2) is dead. Can you if possible re host the file? It would help me out a lot.

          Thanks.
