Re: A launcher that truly stays in memory - GO Launcher

Thanks for the tip. I had been using LauncherPro on my A43 and switched to Go Launcher a few months ago but still frustrated with the lag when I exit an app for icons to reload etc. I tried the stay persistent option yesterday and so far its much better.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Player 4 and 5 Come This Spring

Thanks for the update on what works. I find it very frustrating when apps "aren't compatible" when there isn't any good apparent reason for them not to be.

Re: No green light, no power, tried new power supply.

I didn't plug in my A43 last night and left unplugged all day stuck in a pocket. When I got it out, it was dead. I plugged it to the AC or the PC and no green light. I left it sit for a few hours on AC power and was able to turn it on.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Player 4 and 5 Come This Spring

What's the quality of the camera? Can it actually scan a bar code? Can it see pretty much all the apps in the market without missing the protected apps? I have more and more apps I can use because they aren't compatible according to the market. I don't know if they are protected or trying to use som...

Re: My Archos is running out of space

Do you have them on your memory card? Can you put in a bigger memory card. That doesn't help for apps but will for music/video

Re: [GUIDE] Change app space with stock ROM

Re: Samsung Galaxy Player 4 and 5 Come This Spring

These are out now in the US. If these had been out a year ago (when they were first announced), I probably would have got one. The specs are much better. I downloaded the user manual and it is even better. Much better than the archos and tells you a little how to set up the apps if you aren't alread...

Re: [GUIDE] Change app space with stock ROM

I'm rooting for the first time. I'm stuck on step 3 of the Wipe method. I created my partitions and all seemed OK but when I went to Flash Kernel and Initramfs, I couldn't see the 2GB partition that now has the system. I can only see a 12MB partition. I went back to partition wizard and I think the ...

Re: Frustrated with return

I checked. The bad one was Serial Number: PC111103765. They must have had some problems in that group. I got the replacement and it is fine. It has a serial number in between so it doesn't seem to be the whole lot. Two weeks without it was tough especially since my calendar is on there when I'm away...

Re: GPS on 43

I have a 43 and picked up a cheap Bluetooth GPS to use with Copilot. Multi-touch hasn't been a problem for me. Some reason the resistive screens are easier for me to use with a finger nail and than the others where you use the pad of the finger. I can't type as accurately with the others. Probably j...

Frustrated with return

I returned my 43 because the micro-sd card wouldn't stay in. The return was fairly fast. It was gone 8 days. It helps I'm not that far from the shipping point. They sent me back a new(?) one. It was a shrink wrapped box with all the cables etc. But, the new has a broken volume up switch. It's probab...

Re: Is it worth buying?

I too like my 43. A phone is a good option too. Used will probably not have any warranty. I'm sending my 43 in this week because the car slot broke but I will sure miss it while it's gone. I looked at the phone option when I bought it but a year ago prices were too much. Now if I could get the used ...

Re: HELP Archos43 stuck at ''entertainment your way'' scree

Have you tried holding down the power button for 10sec to turn off? If that doesn't work you could let the battery run out & then recharge & try again.

Re: New Support Feature

I finally heard from them and got an RMA #. Now I have to wipe it and pack it up to mail. They did give me 2 other toll free numbers you can call if you're in the US. 877.300.8879 and 866.489.4718. You can try one of those.

Can't get micro-SD card in

I removed the card a while back and now I can't get it to stay in. Any hints? I'm wondering if I broke something and need a repair. Boy, can the eject on that send it flying!
