Re: Finally a battery replacement for the A5 IMT

You should post this on the Archos 5 Internet Media Tablet forum, not here. But I noticed that the battery is big, which is unlike the battery for the A5 IMT. Maybe you mean the Archos 5 Internet Tablet (Android)?

Re: GoneMAD Music Player [testers wanted]

Hi, is it possible to implement the volume next/previous track with the screen off and with the application in the background? A widget would be great as well. Thanks for all your hard work.

Re: Tweaks for your Archos 5 with rooted firmware (Updated)

Is there a way to move specific apps from sd to the default app folder? I find that certain apps stop working (force close) when a2sd is used. These include Wifi Manager, Office, Easy Switch, and most apps that use widgets. Reinstall does not fix the problem since the apps get installed in SD.

Re: Archos 2.0.38 & 2.0.45 fw with system r/w & apps2sd

Those "strange errors" are normal. App2sd has many other options like moving /data/dalvik-cache to /cache/dalvik-cache which wont work on archos as /cache is on the read-only cramfs. Thats normal I have it working in a limited set custom for archos. The only intended use is for apps to sd-ext not /...

Re: Tweaks for your Archos 5 with rooted firmware (Updated)

Hi, I made the mistake of not backing up the original fonts. The new fonts are not as readable and I want to revert to the original ones. Does anybody know where I can get these? Thanks.

Re: Upgrade 5it Hard Drive?

I think there is no lock similar to the earlier models. Somebody here has managed to replace the drive in his A5A but he had to use a similar brand and model.

Re: external hard drive for flash a5a

Don't waste your time. I have two 2.5-inch drives that get recognized, but video playing only goes as far as two-and-a-half minutes. The Archos Media Player then hangs. I've tried all sorts of drive and video formats, added power to the drives and even changed enclosures, to no avail. On the other h...

Download a third-party alarm clock app. Try Kaloer. I'm afraid I can't help you with your sleep problem because I experience it myself and it's ugly.

I use the A5A 99% of the time to read epub e-books. There's a Kindle and a NOOK reader for Android as well. Among the Office applications available, I think nothing beats OfficeSuite ÔÇö definitely better than ThinkFree Office, QuickOffice and Documents to Go. I just ordered a Stowaway foldable USB ...

Re: I don't want to have to pay for the HD cinema plugin!

You don't have to because it is free. The paid plug-in is for MPEG-2 or DVD format, if I am not mistaken.

Root hack and "delete device configuration"

Do I need to go through the process of rooting the Archos 5 again once I do a "delete device configuration"? My unit is acting up and I need to clean it up. Thanks.

Some bugs with 2.0.38 using a 32gb version: 1. After exiting the Archos video or music player, the top half of the screen becomes black. Only a reboot will get rid of the black screen. 2. After the screen times out, the unit comes back to life a for a brief five seconds, then goes to sleep, only to ...
