Re: Firmware 2.3.81 released - report bugs here

Sad to say that after upgrading to this new fw,I started having wifi problems,to the point where it wasn;t working at all anymore,then I decided to go back to older working fw. Well,still have the same problems with wifi error ,and now I lost the USB port,nothing is detected when hooked up. I am sur...

Maybe you do not understand the difference between original OS and ROOT,but putting simply :
There is no support for USB modems from archos.

UKDROID is NOT from ARCHOS !!

You start understanding now?

Re: cannot copy large files

If the file is 720p and is that large,it won;t be possible to play it your archos anyway,due to the over the limit bitrate. For an acceptable performance,your file should be in the 2.200mbs at 720p,maximum.(a movie should be about 2 gb) And I am sure that large file is way over that. Use mediainfo t...

Re: Wifi problems

Mine is doing exactly the same,can see IP ,the LAN,but cannot get internet,only occasionally. I will change my old router that never gave me problems,because I also notice the laptops also cannot connect sometimes,like the wireless range has been reduced. But all started when updated to last firmwar...

Re: new firmware 2.3.26 - report bugs here

I've had some kind of crash,after working fine with the last update,and now wifi cannot connect to the net,while it sometimes does well to see the LAN. My router does recognize it,sometimes it gets an IP address ,sometimes not. Also,some icons disappeared from display. All in all,I reset android and...

Re: difficult to explain

The idea around locking the screen is to avoid any accidental touching ,not sure what a screen lock means to you,but are you asking to be able to touch the screen to unlock it?
Like iphone does?

Re: Cheap and easy screen protection - Contact Paper

I wouldn't even try contact paper in this devices.

Re: Adding phone capabilities to your android tablet

As I've noted in other posts, I use Sipdroid to make traditional SIP-based VOIP calls (and receive them). (FYI--Skype uses a proprietary P2P system.) I've used VOIP at home exclusively for the last 8 years so it was a no brainer for me to download the free Sipdroid app and set it up with my VOIP ac...

Re: Adding phone capabilities to your android tablet

Tried to install heywire.
It is not in the market and installing from the website says A101 is not compatible with the application.
I suspect they do not allow heywire to install anymore in this devices.

Re: Anyone get an electrical zap while charging?

You cannot feel any voltage from the charger,unless you put the plug in your tongue.(do not even try it) The voltage is very low,you can even touch both prongs at the same time in the car battery and you won't even feel it. You can find you can feel voltage under certain conditions,but you have to u...

Re: Choppy video after 30 sec. when playing 720p MKV over Wi

I have no problems with streaming 720p/2300kbps to A101 ,but anything over that stutters. The main problem here is not the network speed,at all,but the player's limitation. You should try to play the same file from the internal storage first,if it plays,it should play also from the network. By exper...

Re: Best flash apk(youtube desktop site working smoothly)

I updated the firmware to latest (2.1.4) and then downloaded the flash player 10.1.106.16 that is found in the market and works ten times better than before.
Is a lot smoother.
What version is the one posted in this thread?

Re: Video playback quality

Apparently,you are recording with very low bitrate and/or resolution. In the first place,you are trying to record an analog signal (svideo is analog)into a digital recorder,which inherently will produce a digital file. The idea for the digital file to be produced with high quality reside in the vide...

As an oddity,when I installed vplayer, could also play ac3 audio in the provided media player. This stopped once I updated Vplayer to a newer version. I also installed the freepack_plugin at the same time,maybe this is why the ac3 audio was playing. Maybe it includes a trial period of the codecs. Th...

Re: external drive problem

Mounting is not auomatic in android.
When you connect your phone to the usb port,there should be a message notification at the top,you open notifications and there should be a amount option,choose it,then the archos 101 should sense it and open it.
