Re: charges only to 95%

To get a precise battery indicator, fully charge, fully discharge it (for example play videos in a loop) a couple of times, that will calibrate the battery indicator more precisely, it will also optimize battery runtime, it's called battery cycling. I don't really post on here any more but this is ...

Re: USB Host Port not working with new FW

Wasn't going to post again but just wanted to add to this discussion. I have a 101IT 16GB board rev V6. The USB host has just died (archos cust services suck but that's another story) If I put unit into deep sleep the power light stays on. I am on the latest firmware but I am sure the USB worked pos...

Re: Flash.... When oh When....

Surely we can be sure as we currently do not have hardware acceleration it is software only. Archos staff member said the changes needed to enable acceleration were in rom and said they had a special version of the rom that they were using for flash testing that had those changes in it.

Err x86 I think. Compact is just win7 for rom based devices as opposed to installing on hdd.

Don't think Ms will support arm cpu's till windows 8.

Re: How to connect Bluetooth mouse that has no pin?

I can't confirm ALL Android devices - but se x10i behaves exactly the same as my A5 and A70 when trying to pair without passcode What about alpha chars? Can someone try and pop a few in on another android device? Why can android not manage what Mac, windows, pocket and ce have managed for years? Ca...

Re: Wifi/Web Browsing slow..??

I used dolphin HD but found every time I installed I liked the speed but it got slower and slower.

Using miren browser now with cache going to internal flash and it seems faster. Stays faster. And doesn't reload from scratch using back button. Has tabs and full screen :) worth a look I reckon.

Re: How to connect Bluetooth mouse that has no pin?

I got the same rubbish about Bluetooth. I have win ce 3 and 4.1 devices from years ago that accept blank passcodes and alpha passcodes. The archos will not accept alpha input or no input for a passcode. So it is either an android thing or archos thing and not 3rd party incompatability archos seem to...

Re: Flash 10.1 on appslib

As said loads of times acceleration will be handled in rom not the apk. Also should have nothing to do with 10.2 as it only supports android 3.0.

Charbax - web based market defo identifies my device as an archos 101IT not sure how well it filters but says apps are not compatible.

Re: Navigation software on 101, which one is best?

Still I want it to work navigation simply has to work all the time for me. If I am using it a lot this extra BANANA about is enough for me. It may not crash then (but still needs you to exit and re-start) ok so co-pilot 8 stops working in the manner I want it to work in :) But if you're navigating ...

Re: Flash 10.1 on appslib

The appslib version of flash is the same as the current market version (10.1.106.16), so it won't run any better. :( I don't know for sure, but I expect there to be several 10.1.106.16 flash apks, one for each ARM processor out there, at least of those major ARM Processors with graphics hardware ac...

Re: Archos to release high-end tablets late summer!

I hope your right charbax. I see the new home tablets or arnova as budget range. The new premium tablets sit at top (1080. GPS, 3g. Nicer materials and screen would make it premium). The gen8's should continue as mid range. Imagine archos have a premium tablet that is best on market, a budget one (c...

Re: Navigation software on 101, which one is best?

Copilot doesn't crash, just draws a screen full of gibberish when you leave the app and come back if you change the orientation. But its still running. So tap lower left to get the menu then lower right to choose exit then restart. Takes longer to type what to do than to quit and restart it. So its...

Re: Archos to release high-end tablets late summer!

When you say customized I take it you mean behind the scenes as the os looks like most other 2.2's I have seen. Also if acceleration and optimization works so well why does the stock launcher/user experience lag so much compared to all 3rd party launchers I have tried (that usually have more feature...
