Re: Firmware 2.3.81 released - report bugs here

I just found that the Kindle App had been corrupted after the upgrade; I had to uninstall/reinstall. Dolphin Browser HD also had some oddities, i.e. the icon was wrong on the front screen and missing entirely from the Home screen. Also missing from the Home screen are App2SD and AppKik. I'll have to...

Re: Firmware 2.3.81 released - report bugs here

I wasn't having many of the problems others had reported with the prior version, but
this update has fixed the one I did have, which is a full charge not showing as 100%.
It does show 100% now when the battery is fully charged.

I'm still checking things out, but so far, so good.

Re: Tricle-charge problem since upgrade to latest firmware

My 101 just started having this problem, as well. It did not start right after the latest update, however; it has charged fine since I did the update three weeks ago. However, yesterday, after being on the charger all day, when I took it off, it showed only 90% charge. I guess I'm now also in line w...

Re: Wifi Error?

I found a somewhat reliable solution to my connection error problems. I set the
router to long preamble and the error happens only very rarely now. It was indicated
on the router set page as being "not recommended", but I tried it anyway and the
situation is much better now.

Re: Wifi Error?

My router is set to channel 9, so I don't think that is the issue here. I could try
channel 7, but it is occupied by someone living near me.

Re: Wifi Error?

My 101 has started exhibiting this behavior, too, after the latest two firmware updates. I had recently changed to WPA2 from simple WEP on the wireless router and thought that might be the reason for the failure, but switching back to WEP as a test didn't fix the problem. I think Archos may have bro...

Re: Micro SD card problems

I'm not sure I understand the need to "format" the microSD card for the 101. I just purchased an 8GB microSD from New Egg and, when it arrived, I just plugged it in, after which the 101 posted a notice that it was preparing the card. When it was done, I checked storage and found that it showed 7.9GB...

Re: Just got my 101, major problem with power, please advice

I did the same thing the first time I plugged it in. I wondered why it wasn't charging,
then figures out my mistake. I see it's a common enough mistake. Sure glad it doesn't
cause any damage...

Re: firmware update how long

I had none of these problems with the upgrade. It downloaded, installed, rebooted, and
all was well. Total time, other than the download time, couldn't have been more than
one or two minutes.

Re: No HDMI input on my TV

There are HDMI to Component Video converters. Amazon.com has one:

Maybe this would work for you.

Re: Frightening A101 experience

Longpress on the power button, followed by"deep sleep" option, is how I generally put my 101 away. I haven't had any wakeup problems sofar, and it's great on conserving battery juice. This is what I do and I never have any lock up problems. Deep Sleep seems to do a good job of preserving battery ch...

How large an SD card can the 101 take? I've searched the user's documentation and
online and so far cannot find a spec for the max size card accepted.

Thanks.
