MORE INFO HERE---> ANDROID 2.0 on ARCHOS 5 IT <---MORE INFO HERE

Image

We are proud to be the first ones to have a public preview of Android 2.0 on 7th generation Archos devices (Archos5IT).
Mind you, this is not an Archos build and none of the multimedia functionality would work right now. It just shows that even with the current 2.6.27.10 Linux kernel the device is able to boot an Android 2.0 user-space and bring up the UI. IÔÇÖll repeat this. If Archos releases an Android 2.0 firmware it will be very much different!

Given the ease with which I was able to modify an existing build of Android 2.0 to run on my device and get rid of most of the error messages ÔÇô I have to say I have no idea why nobody else has done this yet. But this is kind of symptomatic for the Archos ÔÇ£communityÔÇØ. The loudest to cry out and demand but no one is even able to get their behind up and try it themselves. It took me less than an hour to have the GUI up and running.

Image

One major downside at the moment is that the touchscreen driver is not cooperating. If someone wants to help and try to make it work ÔÇô please contact me.(dm8tbr)

Disclaimer: If this image makes your Archos bite your dog or eat your cat or otherwise damages the device or causes the Doomsday Machine to activate. ÔÇô Tough luck, no cookies.

Just because no one else has released something yet does not mean that no on else has done anything. :D

Still, it's nice to see a release! Congratulations!

I got Eclipse set up, was thinking of trying my hand at programming. Also thinking of messing with AOS. This is inspiring, though I suspect we may see Froyo soon. Just curious why you used the 2.0 build instead of 2.1? I think that is what is required for the Flash beta and the new Twitter app. Anyway good work. I think I would like an extra unit as I'd probably be reloading a lot. A functional dual boot would be great.

Hey sequitur,

Have you considered buying an inexpensive 7HT which would free up your 5IT for play time? Freeing the 5IT for experimenting is one of the reasons I've ordered a 7HT.

My god you're evil Allen! I already tried to give my wife my old 5 and had to buy her a 5 IT. I had rationalized not getting the 7 HT and waiting because I want a higher end 7 with a camera. Now you have me thinking of an extra $200 just because toy. Actually I was considering one of the old 7 tablets but the new one might make more sense for a portable Linux pad too.

Being an old geek gets me into trouble. I am still getting interview requests for when I will update my Linux software projects Quanta and Kommander. I'm looking at Qt Lighthouse where I can develop apps on Linux in C++ and have them run on Meego and Android. I'm writing too much code in too many languages.
