Re: Printscreen

On my 101 G9 (which is still running 3.2.80) I go to Settings -> Applications -> Development and set "Take a screenshot instead of suspending". Then, every time I short-press the Power button, the tablet takes a screenshot which is stored as a .png file in the /sdcard/ folder. Ofc, in orde...

Re: Archos has left the building?

I couldn't agree more, tabber - except to say that there are also a lot of manufacturing defects in the G9 series.

Can't wait to see Charbax's response to your post after the rant he had at me for suggesting that Archos had made a pig's ear out of ICS!! :lol: :lol:

Re: Adobe Flash Player

For reasons best known to themselves, Adobe took Flash Player 11 off the Google Play store recently: they intended to remove Flash from that Android market altogether. After some intense pressure, they have re-instated Flash player 11 on Google Play at URL m. Try getting it from there. If that doesn...

Re: Flash player

I have just found 10.3 here.

Most places I looked have their links redirected to 11.3, and I don't know how long this link will remain viable.

Re: replacement wall AC Charger?

Some pertinent information: A USB port will only provide 500 mA maximum, whereas the Archos AC Charger supplies 1.5 A. All USB ports start by providing 100 mA and, subject to "negotiation", can provide up to 500 mA. If you use an unpowered hub, each port will provide only 100 mA - a powere...

You need to use the cables and mains charger that came with your G9 and no others.

Re: WiFi conection problem after firmware upgrade to 4.0.4

My patience is at the end. After After several upgrades — finaly to version 4.0.7 — Archos has wifi connection problems still and same problems are in GPS. The solution of those problems is only: system recovery and then return back to system version 3.2.8 And what a surprise after that! WIFI — is ...

Re: Wifi Compatibility

Archos put their source code on Gitorious. You can find the code on the following links:

https://gitorious.org/archos/archos-gpl-gen9
https://gitorious.org/archos/archos-gpl-gen9-kernel
https://gitorious.org/archos/archos-gpl-gen9-kernel-ics

You can also see what changes they have made - and when!

Some exchange rate, considering that today's exchange rates make 1 USD = 0.8022 EUR and 0.633 GBP! It does seem to have some dece...

Re: Archos G9 101 Turbo - Touchscreen Sensitivity Problem?

My sentiments exactly, Patrick. I have been recommending reverting to 3.2.80 for quite some time now and leaving the 4.0.x versions to those who are content to be unpaid beta-testers for Archos - and I have taken flak from some Forum Admins and others for doing so. I find 3.2.80 quite adequate, and ...

Re: LIVE! - Firmware Update (4.0.7) - Report Bugs

I don't get any touchscreen problems on my 101 G9 - but then again, I have stuck with 3.2.80 and won't touch any of the 4.0.x series until I see a thread here saying it works well on everyone's G9.

No doubt some Archos sycophant will have another rant at me for posting that, but I don't care [-X

Re: DVB-T on Archos - it's possible?

Velcro strips? Scotch (3M) do a product called "Reclosable Fasteners" which are each 2-part 2cm circles with ""Super strong adhesive on back" and each dot holds up to 1/2 lb.

I use them for a variety of purposes; they are quite good.

Re: Good Non-Glare Screen Protector for G9 80 Turbo tablet

I use the Archos own screen protector on my 101 G9 and am very pleased with it. It seemed a silly price for what is, in effect, just a sheet of plastic, but it does the job. I would recommend it.
