I am not sure if the 8b G2 is the same as the what is called the 8 G2 Dual Touch?

But I have both a stock ROM and a rooted ROM in my ROM forum.

I would need a dump of the stock ROM then to make a custom ROM. I usually keep track of what Arnova has and first I have heard of a 8b G2????

I went to Arnovatech.com. The 8b G2 is in fact what is marketed as the 8G2 "dual touch" if it has a resistive screen.

Look at Arnova's web site. You will see the pictures that show it's the same tablet as yours. Bottom of the screen says 8b G2.

Capacitive or resistive screens; the choice is yours
The ARNOVA 8b G2 is available in both capacitive multi-touch (2 point) and resistive dual-touch screens (the G2-Dual Touch models). Though the 8 inch screen quality is identical and both feature the must-have pinch-to-zoom feature as well as the excellent Android™ Gingerbread multi-touch keyboard. Capacitive or resistive may change how you use your ARNOVA 8b G2 as capacitive screens let you use a lighter touch from your fingers for input, while resistive screens give you the possibility of using a stylus; perfect for drawing or handwriting apps2.



So my ROM's labeled as 8G2 "dual touch" is for you IF YOU HAVE THE RESISTIVE SCREEN!

You missed a bit Bob, down at the bottom of that page it says
"The ARNOVA 8b G2 is available in both capacitive multi-touch (2 point) and resistive dual-touch screens (the G2-Dual Touch models)."

If we could see the FCC tag might be able to tell from that.
Otherwise looks like dual-touch allows you to use a stylus, multi-touch your fingers.

[edit] curse you Bob for editing your post after I posted mine ;)

You quoted me while I was editing that post.... I left out that cut and paste.

So what WE DO NOT HAVE is a 8b G2 "capacitive" ROM dump. But I would almost be willing to bet that if you took kernel.img from my 8 G2 and used it with the other IMGs from the 8b G2 resisitve, it would work. But of course no one with a working tablet should do this without a stock ROM dump. But if your bricked already... I for sure would try it!
