Re: My Archos 101 screen cracked!!! Help...

Truth is, if you find a proper replacement digitizer it should be under $75, I recently replaced my wife's digitiver on her phone for under $25.

With that I have started the hunt for a new piece of glass / digitizer. I have found the screen though, Glossy m Matte (Might work) m This could be the ...

Re: My Archos is back!

Please check the board version of your units (Menu -> Settings -> About Device -> Board Version) what version number do you have now? And why did it go in the first place. (I got mine back on the 18th as well, v5)

Re: My unit weights 558 Grams not 480!

My replacement felt heaver.. weighted it and yes it weights 558 Grams not 480. Had a look in the board version which reports V5 where my previous unit reported v6.

What about those who have done an Android reset or reformat? Any joy on USB Host?


Mine is still dead after full reformat. In '/proc/bus/USB' "002" doesnt even show. The device has no idea a USB port is there.
