Re: Internal storage

Make sure you clear the cache [Clear cache button] and clear the data [Clear data button] when you uninstall apps. Otherwise the cache and data will remain unnecessarily.

Re: When is root for firmware 2.4.81 coming out?

Watching the video is all well and good, but you really should take Harfainx's advice and follow the step-by-step installation instructions as written on the links he provided.

I wonder if they even have a clue as to why their business is down and they have to close some stores.

Re: Battery Apps

I don't know of a good battery app, but I do have a some tips:

1) don't click on those ads

2) you can turn the wifi off and still use most apps such as Angry Birds

3) if you are rooted you can filter out many of those ads

Re: Firmware 2.4.81 released - report bugs here

If anyone is waiting for chulri's root update for 2.4.81, it looks like the project has come to an abrupt halt.

Re: Root for latest firmware

What I use and would recommend is chulri's root [+rw]. He keeps up with the latest Archos Gen8 firmware releases, and should have an update out for 2.4.81 shortly. You can find it here along with the installation instructions http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=930197 EDIT: It looks lik...

Half an hour is hardly significant.

Re: Is it possible to resize the swap partition?

I assume you've tried all the usual methods (copy as root to sdcard, edit, copy back as root), adb pull/edit/push, or edit with vi as root in a terminal? That's strange, because I was able to edit it (added a comment) with vi. Are you using Chulri's +rw root? I couldn't edit it with the swap partit...

Re: Is it possible to resize the swap partition?

I added a new swap partition keeping the resized app partition intact, but now I find I'm not allowed to edit or change permissions on /usr/bin/swap_ctl.sh Also, I wasn't sure if the swap partition should be logical or primary. I chose logical, which may or may not be correct. Back to the drawing bo...

Is it possible to resize the swap partition?

I have implemented Harfainx's [GUIDE] Change app space with stock ROM (it's awesome, by the way), and now I'm thinking with the limited ram on the Gen8, why wouldn't a similar procedure work for increasing the size of the swap partition? I've checked the xda-developers forum, and about all I can fin...
