Re: Firmware 2.4.19 released - report bugs here

About ac3: I'm not much into audio/video so I'm quite confused. I tried playing ac3 sample files online and they played. When I checked settings>about device>plug-ins it says "cinema, registered". Is that the plug-in that's supposed to be purchased? I never bought any plug-ins and my devi...

Re: Firmware 2.4.19 released - report bugs here

This new firmware is a HUGE improvement for the keyboard on Archos 43. They either substantially tuned the resistive screen, or the UI fluidity improvements fixed the keyboard as a side effect. I can type as fast as I possibly can, and only get 1-2 errors per sentence. In prior firmware, I had to d...

Re: Firmware 2.4.19 released - report bugs here

Thought I'd chime in with my 2 cents worth since updating to 2.4.19. My system is A101IT 16GB v5 board. I have my Power Management set to Optimal. No one typically reports this but I' m beginning to think it may be an important metric - my Available System Storage shows 135MB of free space. Observat...

Re: Firmware 2.3.81 released - report bugs here

Total reformating and resetting are for those who did upgrade by OTA and have problem. Of course, if you never have problem by doing that, keep doing that way. Your happiness is not helping any others who have reported problem here. So for all of those who didn't wipe the whole system before upgrad...

Re: Firmware 2.3.81 released - report bugs here

I started my journey with my Archos 101 16GB on March 22,2011. It arrived with OS 2.1.4 out of the box. I immediately updated to 2.1.8. At each subsequent OS update release, I installed them within 24 hours of their release. The only OS that's given me any significant grief was 2.3.20 which broke Pa...

Re: Firmware 2.3.81 released - report bugs here

WOW... it would seem with no complaints since July 25, that this OS is pretty darn stable with few if any real issues.

Just sayin.

Re: Firmware 2.3.81 released - report bugs here

I tried to download the update more than once. It looks like it is downloading but when I check it is still the last version. Now when I try to attach my 43 to my computer I can not find it on the explorer. Has this happened to anyone else and what do I do about it? Your comments are too brief to h...

Re: Anyone got Opera Mobile working

Opera mobile 11.1 corrected some issues with 11.0.

I had dumped Opera 11.0 for Boat Browser during my personnal browser testing a month ago and now I'm back to Opera with 11.1.

Re: Trying to install Paradise Island...Please assist.

Ok, I have 11gig internal storage, 7gig on SD card, and 23meg of system storage. How do I tell the 101 to install to the 11gig internal storage or the 7gig sd card, or do all programs have to be installed to the system storage? Thanks You'll want to go into settings / applications and move as many ...

Re: Firmware 2.3.81 released - report bugs here

Time to chime in. My 101IT 16G upgrade to 2.3.81 went smoothly and so far all is working perfectly except... the battery charge indicator shows only 93% after a full charge. I didn't see this with 2.3.26. Generally, overall responsiveness is faster and smoother and all my apps are working well. FYI ...

Re: new firmware 2.3.26 - report bugs here

Yippie, I think I found a workaround; pretty much everything in this release works fine for me now. Upon wakeup and hitting the wifi button, I noticed my a70 trying and failing to connect to zombie wifi sites (unlocked, but only giving a few seconds to connect and verify yourself in some other way)...

Re: new firmware 2.3.26 - report bugs here

Pointing your finger at users for their firmware problems is both extremely unhelpful and grossly inaccurate. When I upgraded, I experienced problems immediately and had no more than a handful of applications installed. I had 0 problems before the update and I can tell you that upgrading was a huge...

Re: new firmware 2.3.26 - report bugs here

I don't doubt the fact that some of you are having issues with your device running the latest firmware and are peeved at Archos' lack of response and the fact you can't restore back to older firmware versions... however, I can honestly say I've had no discernable problems with my A101 with OS 2.3.26...

Re: new firmware 2.3.26 - report bugs here

Just curious...

Are the folks with the white screen and battery charge percentage weirdness using the "deep sleep" mode setting when the screen turns off?

I don't nor have ever used deep sleep and suffer none of the issues expressed here and I'm very happy with 2.3.26.

Just curious...

Agree. I tried it todays morning, without flash player 720p videos are smooth again and without blur. Are you saying you've uninstalled your Flash Player apps and any/all flash content standalone or in the browser works OK? That would mean 2.3.26 (2.3.20?) has built in flash support.
