Re: Install Extended Controls app on Archos 101 firmware 2.0

I use Widgetsoid and it does most of what these aps do, and more. It is highly customizable.

Re: Scientist's laptop replacement, ending in disaster

The warranty covers defective materials and poor workmanship. It does not cover accidental damage or negligence.
Due to the fact that your screen was broken as a result of a drop, it is likely considered accidental damage, or user negligence, and consequently is not likely covered.

Re: Archos 101 8GB question

My unit has over 6 gig left over. You also always have the option of adding a micro SD card.

Re: Show us your 101 themes!!!!

Widgetsoid is another great app for squeezing extra icons on your screen. I use it to fit 10 apps into a 8x1 widget.
If offers a ton of other functions as well.

Re: anti glare screen protector?

Hopefully we'll also see the next gen from Archos in 2011 as well. Then I can give my wife the 101 and upgrade.
Of course I could "upgrade" to another brand as well, but they will inevitably be over priced.

Re: HELP! ARCHOS WONT BOOT!

I am pretty sure that you need the mico, and that the full sized port is strictly host.

I am also pretty sure that you are correct in assuming that you received a used unit.

Re: Video playback quality

It's the video in question. Try watching some other videos from a quality source. All the movies that I've ripped from DVD's looks great, whether streamed via WiFi from my PC, or played locally from the Archos itself. I've not yet connected it to a television, so I cannot speak to the quality of its...

Re: New A70 - Killed Tasks but they keep restarting

Interestingly enough, My 101 has been unplugged for 5hrs, and actually being used for 5-10% of that time, with the WiFi constantly on...and I am still at 99% battery. Is the original poster using an automatic task killer, that kills tasks when the device enters sleep mode? I am using Task Manager 2....

Re: I Love This Gizmo, but..

Bluetooth. The 70 acts as if it is a phone, not a computer. It should do both. It should attach to my laptop as a client device, and to my phone as if the Archos were the computer. I have tried until I am blue in the face to get the Archos to pair with my rooted Droid to no avail. A note is into th...

Re: Random Reboots

I think that a lot of people's woes are coming from apps or widgets that are causing problems. We knew going into this that there a lot of these that are not designed to work on a tablet, and I know that many of you will say "the well written apps should work just fine." The reality is that many of ...

Re: Bigger Calendar widget for 101 ???? use the screen spac

The only relevant dates for me are the ones on which I have something scheduled, and the Android Agenda Widget displays those nicely. You can make that widget scrollable and as big as you like with LP, ADW and Zeam. The bigger it gets, the more information it displays.
