Re: debian on a5it?

Hi guys, nice to see someone still working on that old piece of hardware. Do you have working wifi with .37 kernel? I tried both a kernel built by nicktime at 20th May and self-built one from latest git. Also I tried nicktime's Ubuntu image and emdebian unstable. Firmware is in /lib/firmware and /li...

Re: CLI scripts used by apps

As for gen7, tethering is run by shell scripts with self-explaining names, so you may look for them too into /bin:/usr/bin:/system/bin:wherever.
To turn BT on/off write 1 or 0 to /sys/devices/platform/wifi_bt/bt_enable (gen7 again).

Re: Froyo - cellphone tethering

It's not available in alpha4. I think tethering is made by Archos. Backend scripts are called clean_tether.sh, check_tether_protocols.sh, start_tether.sh and stop_tether.sh, they are in /usr/bin/ of the original firmware. By the way, I read somewhere (maybe in the A7 or gen8 forum) that these script...

Re: External speaker hack

set archos usb mode to adb, plug usb cable, run 'adb devices' in terminal. it should show something like

Code: Select all

List of devices attached 
0123456789ABCDEF	device
you may also run 'lsusb' and see a line like
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 18d1:0002 Google Inc.

Re: FroYo Alpha2 for A5IT is here!

You might want to ask on the openaos-android mailing list as that is the appropriate place for questions related to Froyo on gen7 Yes, I certainly should. Anyway, I've managed to fix it on my device playing with adb a little. 'adb logcat' printed the following E/WifiHW ( 936): Unable to open connec...

Re: FroYo Alpha2 for A5IT is here!

I've built an image from sources synced at 20 Oct using instructions from wiki. I can not get wifi working. When I switch it on it scans for networks but can't find any and turns off with a message like 'Unable to scan for networks'. With Archos firmware wifi works so my access point is available fo...

Re: bluetooth dongle

I used bluetooth connection to get to internet through my linux box. Look at http://forum.archosfans.com/viewtopic.php?p=234378#p234378 The speed was about 100kbps Need to say, it's not very stable and restarting bluetooth daemon brakes DHCP, everything works back after reboot. Also, when I start bl...
