Re: Firmware 4.0.25 Live - Report Bugs!

First try to update verified, but did not install after the reboot. Tried again. Installed fine. Wifi Icon did not update on first boot. Was connected to wifi, and internet worked, but icon never updated. Rebooted and that fixed that. Can't say it seems faster or slower. Was nice and fast before..

Re: My A32 won't boot

If you get your 32 up again, load the AppBrain market app. It has a feature to back up a list of your apps, that you can use to re-install from if you have to do a factory reset.

http://www.appbrain.com/

Be sure to sync with the market after you have all of your apps loaded.

Re: Firmware update question re apps

Get the app store from AppBrain, then be sure to sync in the appbrain store app before any firmware update. That will ensure that if anything goes wrong, or you need to do a factory reset to get your upgrade working, then you will be able to quickly and easily reload your apps through appbrain. http...

Re: Archos just didn't cut it for me

You said you used it constantly, despite is "slowness", until others complained about it. Who cares if there is a lag to get to the homescreen, if you are happy with it? Sounds like you should get an iPad because you are more worried about what others think than your own enjoyment.

2.1.08 has bricked my 32

After updating to 2.1.08 my A32 hung after playing music for a little while. I rebooted it, but it soon hung again. Then it would not reboot. After multiple tries, I got into recovery mode. None of the reformats complete, and now, after many tries. I cannot even get it into recovery mode. THX for br...

Re: Android 2.3 Gingerbread, 3.0 Honeycomb rumors and facts

My 2 cents, For gen8 devices: 2.3 Highly probable. This is a logical progression. And, considering Archos' constant firmware update history for previous generations, we can reasonably expect this firmware (Barring mostly unexpected hardware restrictions that would exclude gen8 devices). 3.0 Not like...

Re: YouTube Videos

The 2.0.71 update did not include an updated fixed Flash. If you search these forums for discussions of Flash you will get a better understanding of the state of Flash on the Archos gen8's. Use the YouTube app from the marketplace, it will play YouTube videos just fine until Flash is finalized. If y...

Re: 70 vs 101 as an e-reader

For short or "emergency" reading either is good.
For real reading neither is good.

For real reading get a reader with e- ink.
