arctablet.com release Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) on the Arnova 10 G2

Well the team over at http://www.arctablet.com have manged to create an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) for the old Arnova 10 G2 from the arctablet.com website.

“Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) on the Arnova 10 G2, it’s there, finally !
We have an improved an existing ICS firmware to add root, Google Play Store support, CWR Recovery, init.d like scripts, 2 GB storage space for apps and few bugs fixes to the Arnova 10 G2”

Please be aware that the  Arnova 10 G2 has limited resources, such as 512 MB of RAM and older version ARM chip and as such  is a bit too low to offer perfectly smooth ICS operation but is vast improvement over the gingerbread default O/S

Installing the new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) on the Arnova 10 G2

You will need to go to the following website

Go to the Arctablet.com Website and read the install instructions and download the custom firmware update and rockchip flashing tool


You also need to read the following guide about using the rockchip flashing tool


If the above does not work then to get the Arnova 10g2 in to recovery mode take a read of the following blog


When I first tried this on my Arnova 10 g2 after I got the formatting system on the Arnova screen with the little android it then went to a graphic of a circle with CUSTOM arctablet.com FIRMWARE and then nothing happened this was because I push the upgrade button and not the restore button on the rockchip flashing tool.
