Re: Permanent Installations of Older Hacks

Yeah, pretty much. You can replace avos with whatever program you want or you can replace xpdf with your program. Either way, right now you will need to roll your own cramfs files and put them on the hidden partition. The only (and a big only) thing that you will lack in custom apps is access to the...

Re: i give you: moldy cheese

i agree with idontknow. it would be best to allow > 132gb drives. you seem to know what you are talking about. but i'm no ata guru, so i won't be much help there. and i don't have a 160gb so it's not worth it to me to flash one. anybody want to volunteer? As soon as I have a bit more time (get a li...

Re: The newer AOS file format

Wow! wow! I am seriously impressed by your reverse engineering work. Would you by chance be willing to enable the wiki to save all pages in a single archive so that we can have a backup copy just in case the page were ever forced to go offline.

Could someone plz post 2.1.04 hidden partition?

Hello, Could someone please post the contents of the latest Archos 605 Wifi hidden partition i.e. that of version 2.1.04 or a means to extract them from the firmware update files without having to actually install the update? I want to roll by own rootfs using the latest version without loosing the ...

Re: i give you: moldy cheese

Congratulations !!! Thanks for doing this. Now, a quick question - did you by any chance disable the hard drive lock in the firmware? (This is the one thing that Archos did that really pissed me off! I bought a larger hard drive along side the 605 to swap in and was absolutely horrified that they d...

Re: Archos 605wifi hacked (604wifi too probably)

I have to agree with Kouga. Though they may not be a monopolist, they still should be subject to some consumer protection laws - if they don't exist then they definitely should be passed. We did not agree to lease/license the unit. We bought it from a store, and its possession was transferred to us ...

Re: brute force a file?

why do so negative. we know itll take a long time or need a very fast processor to get the job done. for all we know, the first key tried may be the correct one. might get lucky. how would we know because we have been debating and talking about doing something but not actually doing something. acti...

Re: brute force a file?

It is not practically possible. Brute-forcing means that you more or less try every possible number and see whether it gives a good result. With a 1024-bits key there are 2^1024 possible numbers to try. The universe has only 10^100 atoms (~2^320). If every atom in the universe were a computer, each...

Re: brute force a file?

This is absolutely pure speculation , but I do suspect that it may be possible by certain ehm, organizations to do this already. May still take considerable amount of time and energy to do a single attack. Again *PURE* speculation, but I don't believe that its *impossible*, but highly impractical an...

Re: brute force a file?

2) if it were possible, there are much, MUCH more valuable targets that one would go after rather than a key for a multimedia device. Its one thing to attack a device which we should rightfully own - I purchased it, not signed up for a lease. I have no qualms about hacking my unit. If such a method...

Rather than hacking the protection ...

Greeting Folks: I was thinking over the last little while, if the crypto signing algorithms used by the A605 are just standard RSA, what is stopping us from writing our own public key into the flash and signing the hdd lock, kernel, cramfs, etc files ourselves with our own new keys. Would this not b...

Yes, please share as much info with us as you can. My #1 priority with my 605 right now is to get a 250GB hdd I bought for it to work.

Re: Hard drive swapping, solution.

Grond, yes, *please* release some code or utility to allow us to swap hard drives. I've still got my 605WIFI on stock firmware, desperately tried to get a 250GB hdd working (which was purposely bought for swapping it in, before I read that its impossible).

You guys are on your own with replacing avos. Once I get rsync working so that I can dock it and have it rsync files automatically via wifi, I'll be happy. It's been mentioned in other forums, if you want a Linux PDA, check out the Nokia N810, it's cheaper and completely open. -fiat Yes, the nokia ...

The only reason for keeping my Archos 605

Thank-you Fiat so much! I am so glad this happened - Archos should be happy too! I bought an Archos 605 during the boxing week specials since I heard that it runs linux under the hood. I was EXTREMELY disappointed when I found out that I could not run any third party apps, especially my own and I wa...
