Re: ARNOVA 10" G2 Gingerbread 2.3 > Archos 101

The chip isn't specified there though. ARM Cortex A8 is the technology in the processor, but it's not the actual system on chip. ARM is the company that designs the actual processor core , but they have very little to do with the customizations and optimizations of the SoC. For example, both the NV...

Re: ARNOVA 10" G2 Gingerbread 2.3 > Archos 101

Same amount of RAM (I believe). The problem is the different CPU. I could be wrong, but I'm fairly certain that the different CPU is the biggest difference between the two. In the link I provided above the specs state that the processor is an ARM Cortex A8 1 GHz. That is the same as the Archos 101.

ARNOVA 10" G2 Gingerbread 2.3 > Archos 101

I noticed that the Archos spinoff company Arnova are (or will be?) selling a 10" tablet running Gingerbread 2.3. It appears the specs are identical to the Archos 101. Does this mean we may get an official 2.3 for the 101???

Re: USB Host Port not working on Archos 101

So today I received an RMA for the defective A101 sent to me last week. I was very happy to discover another email notifying me that they will pay for shipping - now that's what I call good customer service! I'll let you know how it turns out in a future post.

Re: USB Host Port not working on Archos 101

I can almost live without the USB host defect but will not forgive the deep sleep issue. Without it my A101's battery will die sooner than it should and I'll then be the owner of an expensive paperweight. That being said, because both are related, both must be fixed in this my second RMA to Archos o...

Me again, Tunker. Today I was showing my new Galaxy Tab 7" to a co-worker, demo'ing some of its features and explaining why I think Android is a stellar OS. As we were talking about all things Android, she mentioned that she too has a tabletan Archos 101. I proceeded to rant and rave favorably ab...

Re: USB Host Port not working on Archos 101

I'm on my second RMA too.. my speakers and USB port died on the new device basically right after I received it. This time, I didn't let Archos make ME pay for the return. They did send me a prepaid label (after a few requests) for the second RMA. Going back on Monday. While they won't admit it seem...

Re: USB Host Port not working on Archos 101

I purchased my 101 in early February. It worked perfectly until I upgraded it to 2.3.26. At this point it started randomly rebooting after being placed into sleep mode. Soon after this it stopped sleeping at all i.e the power LED stays on. Even requesting deep sleep doesn't resolve the problem. Aft...

Re: Firmware 2.3.81 released - report bugs here

We waited this long for so little...yawn. My unit is in the States right now being RMA'd for a faulty USB host and temperamental MicroSD. Wonder if this update will stop these issues from magically appearing down the road on the replacement unit I'll be receiving?

Light Sensor

Just wondering if the next firmware will include a functioning light sensor like we had in earlier versions? Seems odd that Archos disabled it.

Re: new firmware 2.3.20 - report bugs here

Before the upgrade, while running Google Listen, I would press the power button to turn off the screen so as to conserve battery life while playing podcasts. After the upgrade doing the same thing causes playback to hault / pause after a few minutes, and pressing the power button continues playback....

Re: Gen8 GPS (possible) solution

Maybe we can use a GPS logger with the A70 OR A101 through the USB host? I have one of these Navin units. I can test when my A101 ships next month. http://www.navin.com.tw/miniHomer.htm The Navin uses the SkyTraq Venus 6 GPS chipset. This company makes the drivers for the Navin. SEE THE LAST LINE h...

Re: Firmware 2.0.71 released, report bugs here

First: This update makes my A101 the device I expected all along. :) It's way more responsive and everything runs faster. I'm quite pleased. Second: Auto-brightness is no longer working on mine. Granted, auto-brightness on Android isn't all that fantastic, but I found it handy. Has anyone else noti...

Re: New official rom released today 15-09-2010

I understand this update from Archos is not a going to knock your socks off, but I must say being able to type this using my two thumbs without errors is a BIG improvement.

Can't wait to see a rooted version with Google apps!
