Re: GFT3 (Stable v1.0) for archos605 wifi (Software Jailbrea

I can't edit post #1 for some reason, but I just noticed (very belatedly!) someone worked out how to get the plugins unlock for 705 models too.

http://forum.archosfans.com/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=39811

H264 plugin and radio player are most useful I think.

Re: GFT3 - Working on the 705

Sorry this is a VERY late reply. 1. What you did is SUPERB :-) 2. It should have worked from the script. I wonder if you edited the restartavos.sh file in a windows editor and made it incompatible with linux? (windoze adds CR/LF to the end of each line, but linus just has a LF character) The restart...

Re: GFT3 -- does this disable hard drive serial number check

No. GFT3 simply enables a root script to be run. I think there are only two useful scripts available, one to unlock all plugins (thanks to archilles) and another to run an nes emulator (and maybe another to run qtopia from openpma, but that's abandoned). For these old devices most common failure is ...

Re: GFT3 (Stable v1.0) for archos605 wifi (Software Jailbrea

Yeah, the plugins unlock will only work on hard disk 605s, the other units have a different version of avos so archilles moldy cheese hacks to the avos binary won't work. You can still run a root script and stuff like the nes emulator though. Sorry for people who can't get it to work, it's a little ...

Re: Gen5 Devices - Forgotten?

You can run anything except a new kernel on gen5 devices with the GFT3 hack, it's simple to apply once set up, you rename a file and launch the browser (It survives reboot, so only requires setting up once, I'm not sure what chebuzz is referring to above, perhaps he's confused) A custom kernel isn't...

Re: HOMEBREW on the Archos 605: NES, Scribble and more!

Unfortunately it doesn't look like sound will be possible with the NES emulator, I had a play with it but could only get crackles. The issue with the backlight staying on seems to be a bug in the archos 2.1.04 firmware, since the same thing happens after I open an ordinary pdf file without any hack ...

Re: HOMEBREW on the Archos 605: NES, Scribble and more!

You can install GFT3 on a moldy cheese hacked device, just rename restartavos.sh to restartavos.shx since you don't need that (and it won't enable the plugins if your firmware isn't 2.1.04 anyway). GFT3 enables a root script (hack.sh) to be run from the default avos interface, there is no simple alt...

why? you can just connect from avos before starting qtopia. fwiw, the commands used to initiate the connection are /usr/sbin/wpa_supplicant -P /var/run/wpa_supplicant.pid -qq -c /mnt/system/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -Dmarvell -B -ieth0 followed by /sbin/udhcpc -i eth0 -s /etc/udhcpc.script -p /var/run...

Re: How to install qtopia/openpma

In the homebrew pack I posted, there is a version of hack.sh which runs from GFT3 (which runs on 2.1.04) that will install qtopia as a pdf file if the openpma-ng files are present in /mnt/data/ But I don't see the point of discussing qtopia on these older devices unless you are contributing an updat...

Re: GFT3 (Stable v1.0) for archos605 wifi (Software Jailbreak)

it looks like it worked, but you can't unlock the plugins on the 4G flash models, since the version of avos is incompatible. SO rename restartavos.sh to restartavos.shx so it never runs. jsplugins gets renamed back to jspluginsx everytime you run the hack, this is clearly explained in post #1, it is...

Hi all! Hi divx and sideways I am a newbie in Archos 605. I have a few question: The hack here can't apply for 605 4GB right? So can I do anything for my 605 wifi 4GB ? Can I install Qtopia on it?

Re: HOMEBREW on the Archos 605: NES, Scribble and more!

amazing job. Looking forward to the emulator having sound. Is that going to be coming int he future or for some reason is it not possible? It's tricky because the main avos process "owns" /dev/dsp which is required for audio. So to play audio I have to kill avos. That then introduces problems with ...

Is there a way to use the GTF3 approach to replace the "libflashplayer.so" (the old dated adobe flash player plugin from opera mobile) with a new version? Maybe we can use a version compiled for a mobile phone like the ones from nokia. Someone knows if this is possible? Any information? I'm willing...
