Re: How to open an A7

Grond,

So is the theory that it is only locked by capacity, and I should be able to use any other 250GB HDD with success. Or is it specific to make and model?

Re: How to open an A7

Ya, I can get into the recovery. Does the SDE image remove the hard drive lock? Is there any reason not to use the SDE image? Once I have the SDE Image than I can put the cracked firmware on, right?

Re: How to open an A7

Bummer, putting the old HD back in won't work, it is dead. I confirmed that by plugging it into my tower, it emits a soft beep and doesn't spin up.

The first firmware I put on the root didn't work, don't remember what error I got, but anyway, I decided to try the factory firmware. That installed fine, BUT, now it goes int...

Re: How to open an A7

Thanks Chebuz.... but I goofed up already, I misread what hard drives were working and picked up a WD Scorpio Blue 500GB and am having similar issues to A>I. It formatted just fine, and I can read the drive from my windows computer to drop the aos file to the root of the Archos, but when I click don...

Re: How to open an A7

Thanks for the great info guys. I use an Archos 5 to entertain my 2 year old on long road trips. I bought it refurbed on 6/30 and it just died in the last couple of days, about 15 days outside of warranty. When I start it it continuously reboots and display the Penguin splash screen for patched boot...
