HOW'S THE NEWEST VDELF FW EXPERIENCE ? I'M STILL WAITING FOR PROS AND CONS TO DOWNLOAD IT.
Vdelf's firmware (I hope Vdelf won't take offence) was a stop gap until Himself's new firmware was released, the only real difference is that he got Google Market place going (I am not running it down) but it isn't rooted and come with the same app storage size.
None of this was discovered by me. All credits go to knightdominion and Himself, i only adapted their work to the archos update. All files were taken from knightdominion's 0.2.1 image. I hope this update.img works for you as well as it workes for me
Vdelf released his version of the firmware because we asked him to... Many thanks to Vdelf
However I would suggest you go for the V0.27 SamJr YAR released by himself this week. SamJr is also based on the new firmware and is rooted with a larger app storage. The zip also includes the Google market.apk and this is also a great improvement over the previous version.
Just remember when installing ANY of the new firmwares the tablet can look like it's locked make sure you have the tablet on mains and be patient - Go watch a film, relax.
Both firmwares are available for http://www.a7ht.co.cc
the real decision come down to this - Vdelfs firmware is really the stock image with some improvements via tweaking meaning it should be easy to go back to the original version. Himself's version changes a lot more and so to go back to the Archos released version will require a bit more work - entirely possible but unlikely you will want to do it.
