Re: An ultimatum for archos

but there is still gen 5. i'll wait patiently for a month or two. that is more than enough time to do it. but if you fail in this, i'll be back. With what? Gen5 is already hacked and all plugins freed. What else would there be? BTW, Archos hasn't published the SDE because they trembled with fear fr...

Re: GFT3 (Beta1) for archos605 wifi (and possible others)

I re-downloaded everything, and when I get to the step to enable the fileshare, the workgroup had a few lines of code in it, and the Computer Name is "Hello".

Where did I have my dumbass moment?

Not really. I work in a group home, and after they go to bed I usually have free time. When I'm home I have cleaning and all sorts of housework to do.

I'm having hope again, but I think I'm going to wait for the "for dummies" version since I'll probably be doing this at work, where I have more free time than at home.

Re: 605 root hack?

Don't get your hopes up on anything from Archos itself. The 605 is no longer sold by them, so they have no real reason to devote time and resources to do anything new with it.

Maybe Archilles will release his hacks, but truth be told I wouldn't hold my breath for anything to happen soon.

Re: QuickTime MOV file JVTCompEncodeFrame heap overflow on a605

I tested Opera on my archos 605 ( http://bcheck.scanit.be/ ) And found this bug: Apple QuickTime is prone to a heap buffer-overflow issue because it fails to properly bounds-check user-supplied input. Successfully exploiting this issue allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code in the contex...

Re: OPENS UP HARDWARE PLATFORM TO DEVELOPERS ( for a605)???

Not going to happen, most likely. They don't even mention selling the 605 anymore. It's an outdated product, so they don't need to care now. But we do! :( So? What money do they stand to make when they don't even manufacture that model anymore? They gain nothing but supporting it more than keeping ...

Only the models they still sell are being supported. Those who have gen 5 or gen 4 are out in the cold.

Re: Downgrading from 2.1.04

Taken from Wiibrew.org: The exploit works by using a malformed banner to crash the Wii and run code to load the boot.dol placed in the root of the SD card. It can be used to install the Homebrew Channel, DVDx and the BootMii public beta via the HackMii Installer. So if a buffer overflow would even w...

Re: Downgrading from 2.1.04

The Wii uses a maflormed banner to cause a crash and run a file. The Bannerbomb exploit, which then can be used to install the Homebrew Channel. You're thinking of something like this?

Re: Entertainment OUR Way

My opinion hardly matters, but I was first interested in getting the plugins for free rather than paying what Archos wanted for them. Then, as I read some more and lurked here quite often, I became interested in the idea of replacing the HDD with a larger one (30gigs is nice, but I've got my eyes on...

I'm still quite new here myself, though I have some understanding of the various hacks from my time in other scenes (Wii, Xbox, PSP). I'm not a developer, just an end-user like yourself. With that said, I can't answer what the "best" firmware is for you. While you said you don't intend to do hacking...

Re: Newest Firmware Updates

As far as I can tell, there are none. Perhaps improved performance with the allowed codecs, but that is it.
