Re: archos 5 IT ..do you still use it?

I use it, but only as a browser. With the google play market now, I can't figure a way to get it. So I only have very limited apps, which is very unfortunate. I have a 32 GB and it's telling me that it's outdated. Plus it's Android 1.6; you can find an Arnova with 4.0... (note you can't push apps to...

Arnova 7 G2 Questions

Hello,

Just curious if anybody knows these two things:

- Is it possible to get the Google Play market on it? Is it already installed, or is there a hack somewhere? I ask because I have an existing Archos product, and it seems not possible.
- Is it going to get the Android 4.1 update?

Thanks.

Re: Hello Guys I have been an idiot???

The content of the article is off topic, but it has good instructions of how to fix your archos. Follow this link (http://dev.openaos.org/wiki/SettingUpMultiRoo) and skip waaaaaaaaaaay down to the bottom to the section: How to repair things if you messed it up / Get back to Archos firmware

Re: Can't Find Windows 7 Driver

Thanks. It was even simpler for me; I didn't have Windows Media Player installed, so after that, it works great.

Debugging Android With Archos 5

Hello, I'm trying to setup my Archos 5 to debug my android applications, but I'm having trouble doing so. When I run adb devices, it's not recognizing the archos. I added the vendor to the adb_usb.ini file, and downloaded the archos driver. I tried installing it on the device by updating the firmwar...

Can't Find Windows 7 Driver

Hello,

For some reason, windows 7 (running 64 bit) doesn't recognize my device anymore, as it says it can't find the driver. Is there somewhere I can download the driver from? I didn't see one on the Archos site.

Thanks.

Archos Windows Driver Update

Hello,

My win 7 machine is having problems connecting to archos, and it wasn't able to install the driver. Is a driver for windows 7 online anywhere? I couldn't find it.

Thanks.

Android Version

Hello,

Is Archos planning on updating their port of the Android OS to one of the new android versions at some point in the future? With Motorola making a product using Android 3.0, and I think Archos is on 1.6? Doesn't seem to make sense.

Anybody hear what their plans are?

Thanks.

Power Chargers

Hello,

I have a USB to AC power converter for a Zune. The specs are:

Input 100 - 240 V ~47 - 63 Hz, 0.2A
Output 5V - 1A

Is that safe to use also for the archos?

Thanks.

YouTube Embedded Video

Hello,

I watch videos on certain web sites that play YouTube videos. Is there a download to get the player to play within these web sites, or is my best bet to use a youtube application to access videos?

Thanks.
