I recently bought one of the version 1 refurbs from Tigerdirect.com. I am trying to instal the v.28, but I can't get it to work. After I copy the image file to the SD card and disconnect from my computer and the machine reboots, it keeps going to the recovery screen. At the bottom of the screen it says Can't open / sdcard/ update.img Failed (-3). And then in really bad english it says, " Can not found firmware image or invalid image. Update aborted". It then allows me to reboot and it goes back to the prior settings. Has anyone had a similar issue? Any ideas on how to proceed? Thanks in advance!
Disregard previous post. Instead of trying to drop v.28 into the sdcard, I used AKAndroid. I followed the directions from the Wiki http://wiki.archosfans.com/index.php?ti ... structions
and it worked great. I have another question, is there a thread for just android 1.5 apps that users like and have tested? What is the best Youtube app to use with the v.28 configuration?
This thread is the perfect example of how powerful the internet is in bringing together people from all walks of life, and from all parts of the world, working together to achieve a common goal.
Many thanks to Himself for doing a phenominal job on coming up with the Root and for working out the bugs! Thanks also has to go out to Watkins77 for providing excellent details on how to use AKAndroid and load the new firmware! Thanks again!!
