Re: quick archos 70 vs. nook color review.

Played with nook color at B&N yesterday. Not impressed with external build quality, reminded me of cheap pandigital novel. Archos 70 looks much more attractive design wise. I am sure nook has better quality control and higher quality components cause B&N is more of a mass market brand. The screen is...

Re: Owner Reviews - A70

I agree with you on everything but the games. I love the A-70 for pdf/e-book reading, browsing, playing video/music. Even flash sites (video) sometimes work well. Too bad about Hulu or Netflix though. How are you guys getting these games and what version works? I can't seem to get any larger games ...

A70 8GB USA Archos.com I got my Archos a day before thanksgiving but didnÔÇÖt wanna post a premature bad review due to the flawed firmware.

Re: How good is the screen?

The viewing angles are not that bad for A70; the resolution and brightness levels seem satisfactory. I was surprised how well movies are looking on the screen. However, it seems that the screen is only 2-point touch as opposed to true multiple point touch (e.g. ipad or galaxy tab). Current firmware ...

Re: GameLoft games that actually works on A70

Hi, I'm just a bit tired of installing/uninstalling games from GameLoft - just to check if it's working, it's playable etc. They've made quite a nice bunch of games in HD series - but non of them is "designed" for Archos (I've already wrote to Gameloft about this problem - they politely responded "...

Re: Just reset the CPU to 1000 MHZ and WOW!

I lost the ability to temp root after a reboot. I had it with Z4Root. When I run It now it SAYS temp root was successful but no apps can access root. SuperUser shows all the apps that have access but they cant get in now. I uninstalled & reinstalled it, cleared the cache, but temp root is now gone....

Re: Overclock 800MHz to 1Ghz

step 1: download Z4Root from the android market step 2: run Z4Root and select "temporary Root" and it will run it and install superuser.apk. Exit when finished step 3: download SetCPU from the market (not free) or find it for free on XDA forums. step 4: Open SetCPU and grant it super user privilege...

Re: After Froyo: Better or Worse Off?

Worse. Asphalt 5 and Home run 3D run MUCH slower than with the previous firmware. Dungeon Hunter HD is now so slow that it's completely unusable. Also, my device never once froze or forced closed before, now it's a common occurrence... It seems like a very very unstable build. Essentially this devic...

Re: Is it possible my 70ran better with this method of marke

After doing market hack via apk, my device starts to slow down and freeze periodically so I don't think the hack is ready yet. You can try Fruit ninja or angry birds - those games are noticeably slower couple hours after market hack. For now I am downloading all my apps and reformat/reinstall again ...

Re: Froyo firmware 2.0.54 released, report bugs here

The only real problems that are here, is a bug with CPU clocks, a bugged video player, and SMB. Once those are fixed, everything should be fine. CPU clock is fixable by SetCPU (if you have it) after temp-root. I don't know what you mean by bugged video player, as all my videos work just fine. SMB w...
