Should change the subject to "Firmware 2.1.08 released - report bugs here", IMO.The subject is always created, mine as well make it this one.

I can't wait to try this when I get home.

I updated the title, Did a install after full format and playing now. Looks like someone took the Proxy App right out of CyanogenMod.

I just got my 2.1.04 working reasonably, again.

I have fear for upgrading. I'll sit back and observe the community perceptions on this one.

I am having USB host issues, I just reformatted for Tech Support and I figured another wouldn't hurt.

I've been in contact with Archos who said that they have a supported flash app, but adobe is just sitting on their hands and not giving Archos the legal "ok" to release it. Perhaps if a few thousand Archos users contacted Adobe, they might move a bit faster.

We are still continuing the long certification process with a scaling partner of Adobe going through all the 2200 tests. Note that the flash plugin that will be used is the one available on the android market. Acceleration is provided outside the plugin. We have now a good user experience on the internal experimental firmware that we use for the certification. All these modifications will be made available soon in a 2.2.x firmware release.

Mine is still dead after full reformat. In '/proc/bus/USB' "002" doesnt even show. The device has no idea a USB port is there.

USB Host! Oh well. I am just waiting until the next round of tablet releases to move on from Archos. Then I will send this one in for RMA and gift or sell it. Too bad. The price is right, everything else works, but I have about lost confidence in Archos.

Seems to install and work ok for me, with no need to unmount sdcard (no lost files).
