yippee for all!!!

Installation Instructions
Step 1: Download & Install

Step 2: After Installation, you'll be asked if you want it to automatically reset your configuration to optimize your device.
If you are updating from a firmware that is older than version 1.6, we highly recommend that you reset the device configuration after the new firmware is installed to optimize your device.

Important to know if you select "Reset Now" after installation:

This process will not erase your media contents (video, music, photo or files stored on your internal memory).
However, additional applications you may have downloaded and installed from AppsLib will be removed. You will just have to reinstall the applications (including password) and reconfigure the settings of your device.


What's new in this version?
New Android 1.6 "Donut"
- Optimization of applications on the high-resolution screen of the ARCHOS 5 IT
- New "Quick Search" to find your Apps, Music, Contacts, and browsing history and get suggested search results as you type
- Easy access to battery saving features (wifi, screen, gps, etc.)
- New version of office documents viewer (ThinkFree Mobile 1.2)

Version 1.7.33 - January 20th, 2010
Since this firmware is based on a new version of Android, after the update, you will be prompted to reset your device configuration. It is highly recommended to do so. The extra applications that you may have installed will need to be re-installed, but your multimedia files will not be affected.


Android 1.6 "Donut": quick search box, power control widget, battery usage indicator screen, WVGA screen native support, VPN
ThinkFree Mobile 1.2: double-tap zoom in PDF, miscellaneous bug fixes and speed improvements

Keyboard: add "OK" key in Android keyboard (long press on "Return" key to get it)
GUI: improved Archos Widget layout on TV
Storage: correct random hard disk disconnection while playing music or video
Network: fix UPnP and network sharing not working on Wi-Fi access point not complying with Wi-Fi power saving standard specification
Network: add an option to disable power saving at the expense of battery life for a specific access point at first association to cope with some buggy Wi-Fi access points
Network: fix archos multimedia application sometimes failed to access the network
Alarm Clock: fix alarm could not be set when android multimedia library was off

Is a reconfiguration necessary? I remember people saying they didn't do it with the pulled FW and had no issues.

When will 2.0 be out? :lol:
Sorry couldn't resist. Great news (especially if it still works with the hack).
How do you back up your apps and transfer them to your computer? Last time I upgraded the FW, I had a back up of the apps on my device, but they got deleted with the upgrade.

No disrespect to Devo, but installing the Marketplace doesn't take mad dev skills. It's just copying some files into a directory.

Devo just noticed that the symbolic links in a protected directory went to a non-protected directory. He had some good presence of mind and analytical ability and enough know-how to know what it was he was looking at.

So, there's know-how needed to be sure, but Devo's real genius was in recognizing some things that the Archos dev team put there in the first place. And Devo did some nice scripts to automate the Google app install process.

And of course you're right. If people are happy enough with whatever firmware they are on, no reason to upgrade.

Michael
