Re: Firmware 2.4.80 released - report bugs here

Have tried to get the home screen delay but don't. It was a major issue. Dolphin HD loads up faster. Will test all my software and moviess and see how things are. So far this update even though they don't list much seems to be well worth the download.

Re: Android 2.3 Gingerbread, 3.0 Honeycomb rumors and facts

I have nothing to admit. I have tried facebook flash games, and done searches on google for flash games and have not been able to get them to work in the default browser or dolphin. They might work on the 43it but they do not on my 70s. So either do to poor hardware or software my unit will not play...

Re: Android 2.3 Gingerbread, 3.0 Honeycomb rumors and facts

If Archos is smart they will do something about it, that many bad comments is going to get noticed by others sooner or later and its just going to spread bad news for the brand something they can't afford. Ar hos should be worried, they have a track record they need to clean up. Promising the facebo...

Re: Firmware 2.3.81 released - report bugs here

Over night, the device still only charges to 92%. I did not do a wipe and upgraded from the most recent firmware. I would drain the battery entirely and let it charge, and repeat. I believe the Archos 70 users a LIPO (Lithium ion Polymer) battery and should NOT be tricklecharged (IE, unplug it when...

Anyone use the stock clock app? I used it as a bedside clock replacement since it had an alarm and also weather and dim feature. Well since 2.3.20 update the weather feature is gone. Why would they remove it? I like to be able to look at the clock and see the current weather conditions. So until arc...

Re: Dead Beef???

Its not like the mac axdress is hidden on any other device. From what I can tell for android devices this is pretty common practice. I live next to a pizza place and have access to the wirless and I see 2-3 android a day use it and all show the basic same as archos now.
