Booting Your Arnova 10 G2 Into Recovery Mode

April 4, 2018


Are you an owner of an Arnova 10 G2? If so, then you know that these 10 inch tablets are perfect for surfing the web but, with their stock Android OS they don’t have too much more to offer. Thankfully, some very talented people found ways to root the 10 G2 allowing us to make administrative modifications or permitting the replacement of the stock Android operating system. There are even methods to installing Google Play, previously known as Google Market, and this alone has made the 10 G2 worth owning. Adding Google Play has leveled the practicality playing field for this device. Although, it can’t quite compete with quad-core power monster tablets with their high definition screens, it’s still a great tablet for $130, if you are willing to root it.

Rooting has become an almost effortless task for most devices with the advent of 1 click style rooting software. For the users out there that stumble upon this article and don’t know what “rooting an Android device” means; let me tell you. Rooting is a process that gives you, the user, administrative privileges on an Android operating system powered device. This allows you to circumvent restricted features, in the 10 G2’s case, removing bloat ware (unwanted applications that typically cannot be removed) or changing your ROM (a data file that is a version of the whole Android operating system.)

The Process

Here are the steps to gaining recovery mode access to your Arnova 10 G2:

  1. Plug the power cable and USB cable into your Arnova 10 G2. You should plug the other end of the USB cable into the computer and the power into the wall socket.
  2. Stick a paperclip into the reset slot and hold the reset button down.
  3. Push and hold the Volume + key. So now you are depressing the reset button and the Volume + button.
  4. Wait 15 seconds and release the reset button, but still hold the Volume + key.
  5. Give the device a few moments to cycle on. The screen will remain black. This black screen is the only visual proof that the Arnova is in recovery mode. You can release the Volume + button.

That’s it! You can now add your drivers and run your recovery software so that you can install a custom ROM or even the stock ROM which is located at Arnova’s support page.

There are lots of places to find information on the rest of the process. I implore you to search for different ROM’s and test them out. Some are great and some are even greater. Find what works for you and most of all, best of luck!

    16:43 is a great question. Some people will never hit bottom, does that mean they don't recover.

    Did you know that taking a bottle of beer from the Marpa House community is the worst crime on the surface of the earth"

    the anonymity in 12 step programs, especially NA and AA, is more about being anonymous in the meeting. the idea that it doesn't matter why it is that you're there or how long or short you've been going. by being anonymous, everyone is put on an even keel.

    Maybe Grandparents and kids have it right. Maybe we should have whatever we want all time.

    <3 this. Thank you Noah Levine for everything that you teach and you do. I am so grateful for all of your talks and lessons and you have inspired me so much. I have been attending the Dharma Punx/Rebel Dharma classes at Insight Santa Cruz which is really close to where I live,and I love these meditation and dharma talks. I have read your first memoir Dharma Punx, and I just bought Refuge Recovery and excited to start reading it and attending the Refuge Recovery meetings at Insight Santa Cruz. Namaste~

    Thank you Noah.  I didn't know anyone had addressed "walking in both worlds" in the way you describe it.  It's encouraging that you believe this is doable.

    It sounds like they're voices were mistakenly switched at birth.

    His voice does not match his appearance at all.

  • Kenn Hiser April 4, 2018 at 6:45 pm

    His direction makes me feel less attracted to his group as I a n not in recovery. Getting very narrow in that way.
