Kobo Arc, Arc 7, Arc 7HD and Arc 10HD


Enable unknown sources In security options
Download arctic.apk to your tablet from and install, it will do the rest and install Chainfires SU

Enjoy your root access

Please note, the Arctic patch for the original arc may no longer work after a recent system update, possible solution would be to use fiddler to check what response the device receives to with the update, then hardreset device, connect to an access point directed to a proxy with fiddler running and change the response it gets, going to be a pure pain in the bum but it should work, ill maybe add that info later. Or work on a way to flash a ROM from stock recovery....

Recovery Mod

  • Root needed first!
  • And something like ROM Toolbox for all the various apps needed
  • Install the android SDK on your computer, you will need to add the google usb drivers, you will find them in the "extras"
  • Enable usb debug on the arc and install the generic google adb usb drivers
  • Plug in the device and let it install drivers, it WILL fail one device, manually install drivers for the failed "arc" device that's highlighted with an error, click on it and update the driver, browse, let me pick my own, show all devices, click next and have disc. Click browse and navigate to your android SDK>extras>google USB driver, for the correct drivers, select "ADB interface"
  • Delete or rename the file on the device located at /etc/ this will make the custom recovery persistent
  • Copy the recovery.img to the SDCard, either by using drag and drop in windows ( to root of "internal storage") or by adb push "adb push recovery.img /sdcard/

  • The next job is to open up a command window on your computer and navigate to adb folder, SDK>platform-tools. Type the following exactly, even better copy and paste them!

    adb shell
    cat /sdcard/recovery.img > /dev/block/platform/omap/omap_hsmmc.1/by-name/recovery

    exit adb shell (ctrl+C) and type

    adb reboot recovery

    and bobs your uncle, one happy new recovery
