I tell you what you can hack your archos 605 in windows 7.
The good hack files are placed in the bottom this post, becouse you must read my instructions before you start hack.
I hack archos 605 WIFI 160GB with 2.1.04 firmware. I'm using Windows 7 x64 Professional, AntyVir and Firewall is turned off.This color is operations on Archosand this color is procedures in PC
I describe you what I'm doing exactly:1)
I turn off my archos2)
Turn on with TV/LCD button and choose "Repair Disk"3)
then connect to PC via USB cable4)
I open archos drive, goes to "/System/" path and edit "System.bin" file via HexEdit (just like on this page GFT2 hacking
I save prevourios file6)
I download arcwelder.zip file from this site
becouse first link in this article
I extract files from arcwelder-1.0.zip archive to Archos /Data/arcwelder/
This is list of files:8)
Then i click "OK" button on archos to restart it9)
After start I enable the WIFI and connect to my network10 )
click "WiFi Status"
I got this IP address:11)
Then goes to "Wireless File Server..."12)
The "Workgroup" name is:I not change enything in this step.13)
The Name is: "Hack and "Password" value is: "1234"
becouse I want get stdout.txt and stderr.txt files in my "/Data" folder14)
After that I "Enable File Server"15)
Then i go to my Windows 7 and open "my computer", on the left bottom you can see "network", click it16)
Wait fiew moments If you want se the new "HACK" computer17)
Double click to "HACK" and enter name: "Hack" and password: "1234"18)
Then open next(share) folder and wait a moment19)
Archos should be close file server and back to main screen (this is success
If you want see whole process you could open "stderr.txt." file from "Data" folder22)
I dont have opera plugin, so I open stderr file and click "BUY" then waiting, file will should open (if you want see good stderr.txt file please visit arcwelder site
If you open file and you see hourglass and you waiting, waiting and again waiting You must still waiting
becouse this proccess takes 10-20 minuts, so plugin charger/usb (after this your archos not turn off wifi) and be patient.b)
Content portal dont work good now, so this is long procedure. After "stderr.txt" file open your archos should have all plugins 23)
This is success, and you should be happy =)Now you can connect via putty to arcwelder ssh:1)
I use CMD in windows to make sure if archos is avaible on my network. So i ping his IP address:2)
I download and install Putty3)
Then I generate private key from those instructions
.Putty should work without that, but if you have problem you must generate key.4)
I open putty and select private key (if you generate it, this is not important if putty work without key):5)
Then I back to the sessions and enter archos IP address:6)
Click "open" and waiting fiew moments7)
Enter "root" and you should see arcwelder welcome message
If you have "connection refused error" message:
You must install arcwelder again, becouse installation is not successful.
If you download my files please leave points: 4, 5, 6, 7 and only place System.bin to System folder, the content of GFT3 folder to main archos folder and arcwelder folder to Data folder on archos.

to good files (System.bin, GFT3, arcwelder).
End sorry for my bad english.
