Re: YouTube not working

You might do an advanced search of just nthe gen8 section for youtube. It was often a problem when youtube changed their decoding scheme, but didn't release a new app for gen8 because they weren't google approved devices. Maybe you can get a working youtube upgrade app meant for a similar old device...

Re: Platinum 55 - can't apps move to SD

All I can speak about is how much older archos devices worked. There was a very misleading historical terminology where moving apps to sdcard actually meant parts (not all) of the app was moved from system memory to device memory. It used to be that device memory was on an sdcard, but then it became...

This forum is not from archos, just us users. Archos web pages should show how to contact them.

Re: Firmware upgrade failed. Is this the right model/version

Gen 9 had a door on the back to insert a usb thumb drive or something. You can probably find pictures in this forum, as well as confirm the latest firmware version in the discussions there. I don't know anything about gen 10, but don't you want to turn the tablet off then on to boot up new firmware?...

Re: A70 Screen Life

Well, leaving it on killed my backlight, just as I feared. Also lost touch capability, probably from being always plugged in. An Asus android workstation also did the latter without hardly ever being turned on.

Re: A70 Screen Life

I didn't mean the a70 can't normally survive an android reset... I have done that OK many times. I mean after this long successful life, the ability to regenerate the connection to google market after an android reset has seemed to evaporate. Arctools has made their fix pay only, and the xda equival...

Re: Touchscreen phantom inputs

This was discussed a lot in the generation 9 section in this forum. Some had some luck with something like android resets, but I think for most folks it gets worse over time. In the meantime, sometimes it helps to turn the device 90 degrees just to get the hotspot over something else.

Re: Won't Charge

I have forgotten at times my old generation 8 requires a barrel charging jack, and not in the compatible size earphone socket. You didn't give symptoms, but my similar arnova 10 sometimes indicates already charged when it's not, and I have to unplug and replug a few times to get into charge mode. Th...

Re: Firmware Update policy

The official firmware has extremely small space for apps, and it has been my and a few others observation that you must underfill the appspace by 50 or 60mb for it's own housekeeping or the tab will chronically drag or lockup or whatever. It was designed to save space for media not today's megabloat...

Re: Firmware Update policy

My a70 is also running fine. Archos did do a huge number of firmware updates for it, probably more than was financially wise. There are web sites discussed in this forum (xda?) which may offer more recent unofficial firmwares for it (at your own risk). I had mine configured perfectly, but unfortunat...

Looks like Tapslayer is free. The new Stupid Zombies 2 is probably better than the regular SZ due to easier aiming and crazy scenarios.

Appspace - slowdowns

Some of my archos/arnova devices are running out of appspace and slowing down due to bloated google play updates. Here's how I made lots more space: 1) Rogue apps: in settings/manage apps/downloaded or whatever, I hit the option to sort by size. At top there would be 1 or 2 minor apps that had explo...
