Re: Strange Sleep Mode behaviour of Archos 101 and 70

I had problems with waking up the 70IT, too. It wouldn't turn on unless I pressed the reset button for 15 seconds. Even then I had to go through the procedure at least three times before the ARCHOS title screen appeared. There was always considerable power drain while the device was in this coma-zon...

Re: My GPS Setup Guide (Google Navigation)

I have paired my Droid X with the Archos 70, but the option to Select a Bluetooth GPS remains greyed-out and unclickable. The Droid X has GPS 2 BT widget enabled - is it messing up the connection with the 70IT, you think?

Re: easy market install on froyo 2.0.54 firmware: the apk wa

The info provided by this forum is great! You folks rock. I have Market loaded and was able to remedy the You Tube glitch. I think my Market is the old version even though I downloaded a newer .apk and used Terminal Emulator to copy it to the app folder. There appears to be a protection feature prev...

Re: pls help

My firmware won't update by using Firmware Update in Settings. The status keeps stating "Your product is up to date" even though the tab is 2.1

Any ideas or suggestions?

Thank you!

Re: Froyo user reviews?

When I click Firmware Update, the tab shows the firmware version of 2.1 as being "up to date" Is 2.2 being rolled-out selectively?

Re: Calling all Motorola Droid users

My Wireless Tether app did not work either (Droid X) because of the ad hoc connection. I ended up using the 3G Hotspot app with a patch. The initial connections were slow until I figured out I had to change the wifi channel on the Droid X. Both bluetooth (DUN password protected) and 3G Hotspot are V...

Re: 3G Hotspot connected; the 70IT still cannot browse...

I didn't expect the 3G to be sluggish, either. I thought maybe it was because I applied a patch to gain access to the hotspot.

But...I went into the Droid X's settings and changed the wifi channel. Doing so, sped things up considerably.

Will the upgrade to Froyo impact the wifi settings?

Re: 3G Hotspot connected; the 70IT still cannot browse...sol

Mystery solved! The 3G Hotspot connection is painfully slow and the pages were timing out. I am disappointed, but at least I know I can browse via hotspot in a pinch. Santa Claus, please bring me a Android-to-Android-friendly wifi update. One with speed and ease of use. I have been good this year!

Re: 3G Hotspot connected; the 70IT still cannot browse...

Wireless Tether works great! For my laptop-Droid X connection. However, Android-to-Android systems do not play nice so an ad hoc setup doesn't work. I actually got the 3G Hotspot up and running (not an ad hoc). The 70IT connects to it. But for some reason I cannot browse around. It may be something ...

3G Hotspot connected; the 70IT still cannot browse...

Through the help of other posters, I was able to activate the Droid XÔÇÖs 3G Hotspot. The Droid X and 70IT are now connected. However, I still cannot access the internet from the 70IT while connected to the hotspot. I assumed (perhaps incorrectly) that 3G Hotspot wifi is infrastructure mode and that...

Re: A70IT 8GB AVAILABLE NOW

"In stock orders usually will be shipped within 1-2 business days." Could this be interpreted as "No inventory at this time, but Archos will ship when in stock"?
