do you already have the sdk installed?

If so go to your sdk folder\usb driver folder and open that file in notepad.


I did.
I have Android Composite ADB Interface in device manager but nothing is displayed after 'adb devices'


Well we are in the same boat then, I guess Ill wait for the apk complied for me.

Worked perfectly for me. It's actually pretty easy to do.

Just installed Flash 10.1 from the market, now I'm on my way to complete android bliss.

Did this work on Windows or Linux/iOS, etc?

Windows 7 Professional 32-Bit

I used the Archos 5 IT drivers with no modification, as suggested in the first post.

ADB wasn't working for me so I just got the z4root app from xda http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=833953 and temp rooted my A70.

Then I used root explorer to copy all the apks from the google apps into the /data/test/froyo/system/app
folder.

I rebooted and everything seems to be working fine. No computer needed. I'm downloading an app off the market as I type this.

Ok, not perfect, little bit of force closing, but the app installed fine.

Downloading flash now :)

Putting the Google Apps on the Archos is a hack. It is not something supported by Archos. By definition, hacking is not meant to be easy, but the non-programmers/hackers think that it is because the programmers/hackers provide simpler ways for others to do it (eg. providing an APK that does all the work). So yeah, it is a lot of work, and someone will have to do all that work.
If you want an easier way to do it you can either 1) wait patiently to reap the rewards of someone else's hard work, or 2) learn programming for the Android and help create an easier way (which others will of course benefit from).

Sorry to go off, and this isn't just directed at you, but I deal with people all day who just want to hit an Easy button to get things done.

The market.rar download contains the 2.1 gApps it looks. This is why the Market is FC'ing. If you look at the dates of those files, they're like 2008. Maybe it's just a glitch or maybe the person who made these has a computer with a bad time (=.. i dunno

i used method 2, not the one in this thread - but i just copied my vending.apk out of my 2.2 evo into my A70, now it works with froyo no crashes.

Can you upload the apk file that we need to stop the crashes?

the market force closes because it is actually the eclair version hacked for froyo, replacing the vending.apk with a froyo version fixes the crashes.

i copied the vending.apk out of my 2.2 Evo and followed the directions again, this time only copying that specific apk after deleting the existing one. now browsing downloading installing from the market no crashes, so a new vending.apk is your solution.

well whaddaya know , it seems some nice fella uploaded the proper vending.apk here:
http://www.sendspace.com/file/7d7j8z

definitely wasn't me, just replace the one from your existing "market" folder. it should be 900+kb(new) vs 600+kb(old)


the quote was from the other thread.

@accountessa

no problem! I am just happy i actually figured out something useful for everyone!

Thanks for the market.rar and vending file. It was kinda funny how only the outdated adb.exe from archos works with the device, and i have to use only the adb.exe. Having the other files from the archos adb site on the adb folder actually makes it not work. I also used the device driver from android sdk, using the tips someone mentioned (Adding the 5-6 lines for archos).

The bat file is silly though, all that lines can be cut to one line "for /r %%i in (*.apk) do adb push %%i /data/test/froyo/system/app"
