Thanks. But I'm not really interested in bug testing 3rd party apps. If Copilot / Holux works using the inbuilt Archos utlities, why bother with anything else?
If using a fold up map works to get you to your destination, why bother using a GPS? If using a pen and paper works to get your work done, why bother using a computer? If the Archos comes with AppsLib, why bother installing Google Market?
Take a look at this thread
where people are trying to customize the look of their devices. The power control widget provided by Archos is HUGE and includes additional "widgets" that I won't use/don't care about. I only need the widgets to control WiFi, Bluetooth, and screen brightness.
I'm trying to determine the root cause of the issue here. Is it a problem with the device, or with the widgets? I think determining the problem will help the entire community, and if you have no interest in contributing, that's fine. I prefer not to stick my head in the sand when something doesn't work as it should.
Sorry. It was a silly attempt at some festive humour - no offence meant
Remember your original post?
"but it turns out it's an issue with the Archos itself.
"It looks like any time the Archos is paried with this receiver, ANY widget will cause a Force Close when attempting to turn on Bluetooth
It's not "an issue with the Archos itself", and it's not true that "ANY widget will cause a force close". My Holux works perfectly in this situation, when using the Archos' own power widget. You asked for information and you got it.
I apologise again for the humour. I keep forgetting that humour is frowned upon in this forum. I thought you just wanted to get your device working, given your statements about the Archos not working properly.
I have 6 rooted Archoses, so no-one can accuse me of burying my head in the sand, as far as trying things out is concerned.
Maybe you should re-title the thread to something like "Help with customising the Archos User interface"?
