Re: Android Firmware Update Problems ...

After you pressed volume down and power you get into the recovery menu. There is an option to mount your Archos as a storage device: "Start USB MSC" . Have you tried that ? If not you should be able to see your Archos then and copy the firmware over to it. And from the same menu you should be able t...

Re: Firmware 2.1.03 (was .02) released - report bugs here

I really like the effort that Archos is putting into the new firmwares, but it wouldn it be a good idea that they would test new firmware first with closed user group, like Archosfans :) before putting it out on the site. Since we still have a serious download issue in this release. And before that ...

Re: Reboots in loop with 2.1.2 firmware

I finally got into the recover menu and applied the 2.1.3 patch. In the process I formatted my Archos (volume down, power button procedure). It is all in the manual if you get these kinds of problems you get anxious and forget about it :) But now running ok. Have to rebuild all the apps. But since i...

Same here. Cannot download files with normal browser and Dolphin Mini.
Using wireless-N router.

On the Positive side:
However SMB shares are now working !
They come up with a work-around for the power drainage and the not waking up after a while.

Re: Firmware 2.1.03 (was .02) released - report bugs here

Do not use this link !!! Because some of us are experiencing endless reboots in upgrade process.
Please use the new (2.0.03) link.

Can someone provide me an instruction on how to reset after experiencing problems. I cannot seem to get out of loop.
Holding power button will not help.

Re: Frightening A101 experience

I experienced this frequently. It is one of the nasty bugs in the latest firmware update. If you search the forums you will find lots of simular experiences. You can prevent this by switching of wifi or put the device in airplane mode if you are not using it for a couple of hours. I use the free app...

Re: FULL BACKUP FOR 101

You can use AppMonster pro to backup automatically your installed apps.

For you homescreens you can use ADW which can backup its settings. I never tried the backup of ADW though.

Also when reinstalling I create a little list/note of the things I have installed in which order. Might same some time.

Re: Recommendations on cleaning screen surface

You can use special - screen wipes to clean and a anti static cloth (like). Make sure it is really dry before applying. If some dust remains you can use scotch tape to remove it. Just apply the tape to your index finger and remove any dust left. Once it is dry and clean you can start applying the sc...

Re: Strange Sleep Mode behaviour of Archos 101 and 70

i tried to use hibernate app for a couple of days as someone suggested. It works great.

So for instance when i go to sleep I press the hibernate widget. It brings the tablet to plane mode.
It prevents battery drain. Also havent had any unwanted shut down or freeze in standby mode.

Re: battery life

If you want to save battery life (while not using your device) use hibernate. It switches to plane mode and saves power. There is a widget you can place on your home screen to switch it on or off.

Well there is some system level copying as described above, but it is far from perfect. There is some room for improvement in android if I compare this to my windows mobile phone. ULTRA keyboard is very good though.

That's true. One other feature of astro is that you can create favorites. You can find it when you pull up the menu. At least you can jump quickly to specific folder. I think this should be fixed in the next release because it worked in previous release of firmware. I don't know if this android spec...
