I installed this years ago (or so it seems) and I've used it ever since. It solves all those problems.http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthr ... p=10239743
OK can try it , but is it a complete ROM that I install in place of the original one ?
is it overall faster, stable and all stuff working ? if it is based on android 1.6 then some apps might also not be compatible
A couple of things to say. It is not Android 1.6, if you read the title again you will see that the 1.6 refers to the version of UrukDroid, not Android. You will also see that the thread is 270 pages long. The thread started on 1 January 2011, by the developer $aur0n, last posting (by $aur0n) on 13 October 2012.
So it had nearly 2 years of continuous development. Each release, from version 1.0, was stable on release. Subsequent releases added new features.
UrukDroid in its various releases is a standalone FirmWare, based on Archos' various FW releases of its version of Android. It does not "replace" the Archos FW, although you may uninstall the Archos FW if you wish, after installing UrukDroid. I never have.
It offers a dual boot system, where you may boot into either FW. Having said that, after you choose to boot into UrukDroid, it will boot into UrukDroid by default, each time you reboot. If you want to boot into the stock FW instead, all you need to do is boot into the development FW and choose from there. Then it will boot into the stock FW on each reboot, and so on.
It offers massive improvements over the stock FW, and, in my opinion, is the FW which Archos should have offered. Archos should have paid this guy to update their FW.
I've not explained why I think it's so good. If you follow the thread, and the included links, you will see what it does and why people love it.
