Re: Frightening A101 experience

I have this experience frequently. I think it has something to do with wifi, but only a guess. I have found that if the light is off, hold button for what seems like 15 seconds until little flash, then press once and light comes on and boots. If light on, hold similar until light off, then press onc...

Re: Video playback quality

Great viewing on device. Very disappointed with hdmi quality. Very Poor. Limited to 720 and even then. My pos seagate theatre plus has far better quality. Control is nearly impossible with delay input on trackpad. Would be better to be graphic remote control. Luckily, this is not one of the reasons ...

Re: Transferring apk from Android phone to Archos

You can also email the apk and install it directly from the email. I also use bluetooth file transfer and it is really easy and quick.

Re: Downgrading to 1.0.84 from 2.0.54?

I know on nexus if you want to downgrade to certain firmware you have to name it passimg. Zip.

Isit possible that the archos tablets have a similar function that will bypass the hardware version check?

Re: please help me with market install 2.2 + APK method

Don't try to install two different gApps packages. If you have already formatted your unit, then do it again and just install the aos and then the latest kenyu73 _v4 gapps package because his can be removed and updated and it also has fewer apps which means you can download and update the others at ...

Re: Car bracket?

I don't use the 101 up there much, at least not until I can get Copilot running right. It doesn't block too much but it is pretty huge so I wouldn't want it anwhere else on the dash. It's actually 58 in Southern California on my way into work in Bakersfield. I got CoPilot working in portrait with b...

Re: Using NDrive with bluetooth GPS

Just spoke with CoPilot support and they have concluded that no imei means no ability to license. As the market for these devices grows, I am sure they will come up with an alternative license, but I am not holding my breath. OK, so I should have just tried to do this more on my own. I found a link...

CoPilot will not license on Archos tablets for now

I just got off the phone with ALK and found that they have figured out why the Archos Tablets won't get a license. Their license process is driven by IMEI and the A101 and A70 don't have an IMEI. If someone can figure out a way to write one to the device (even temporarily) then the license would pro...

Re: what video does play on these? workaround for $40 plugin

I use Handbreak with x264 video and mp3 audio to a .mkv file when I encode. Xvid, and flv also play just fine. Format factory is also free and works great. Actually much faster at encoding than handbrake (at least on my computer) Do you have recommended settings for which format and settings for an...

I figured it was time to spend $5 on copilot. Every time I tried purchasing through A101, it wouldn't complete the authorization I purchased it on my phone because website says you can transfer it from one android to another by deactivating the first. I didn't start (or complete) the reg on my phone...
