Re: Firmware 2.3.81 released - report bugs here

I was wondering if i could install the new firmware 2.3.81 by skipping the other two updates that did not get good reviews. I stillhave 2.1.08 and i wonder if this would be safer to do? I still don,t have the google market. I am really confused on how to install it. Is there anyone out there who ca...

Re: new firmware 2.3.20 - report bugs here

Does anyone know if the 15% low battery farting noise issue is fixed with this firmware? Mine is A70 with 2.1.08 and it is still there.

No one in this thread seem to care about this issue?

Re: Strange beeping sound for low battery warning

On topic: the low battery alarm is truly horrifying. It does not sound at all like it was intended as such. Perhaps a misplaced binary gets sent to the speakers. The low battery alarm seems to have gone away after I installed 2.1.08. Now when it reaches 15% it will give low battery warning but no s...

Re: Archos Payed activation?

Hi, My name is Aislan. Yesterday I tried to buy a Archos 101 Internet Tablet on an store in Singapore. The seller told me that I have to pay the activation of the product, and the activation can only be made by the seller. Is this information correct? I need to pay any kind of software, AppLib, Unl...

Re: Strange beeping sound for low battery warning

I'd love to turn that off too. It's so awful that it makes me want to practice bad battery use by plugging it in before it's drained completely. You should not let it discharge completely, this is "bad battery use" with lithium ions battery. Top up as often as you can to maximize the longevity of y...

Re: To upgrade to newest marketplace pls use gapp4archos_v3

It seems that V3 market will be updated to the latest, and V4 will not. At least that is what I am facing now. I was using V3 last time and it did update itself to 2.12 (the latest at that time), but after I reset and installed V4, it still remains at 1.82 after a few days, no sign of it going to up...

Re: 256mb of RAM is clearly a deal breaker...

I couldn't even unrar a 5mb file using the device... It complaints about low memory resource everytime I did that.

It gives the same error after I configured a 128mb swap, so swap didn't help.

Strange beeping sound for low battery warning

I have been searching around but couldn't find the answer. Please lock the thread if this has been discussed elsewhere. I have upgraded to 2.0.54 for my Archos 70, since I first got it. When the battery life turns 15% or below, it will pop up a low warning notification, which is normal, but the noti...

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

I've completed v4 of gAppsInstaller (kenyu73's). This has a stable Market, no GUI defect and the misc Market apps do not FC anymore (WeatherBug, Autozone, OSMonitor, etc). Best bet is to do a fresh reset if you've been hacking at gApps4Archos. http://forum.archosfans.com/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=42390 ...

Re: Archos Should Just Close Their Doors, And Go Out Of Busi

All the examples that your are talking about, are form companies with larger software developer teams than Archos has employees entirely.

C'mon mod, just let it go. Isn't there free speech allowed in this forum? We're not allowed to bash ipad just because the mod owns one??
