ARCHOS 604 DOWNGRADE+UNLOCK BOTH PLUGINS

Finally I bought another 604 that had 2 plugins unlocked. Also the seller copied both plugin files on the device before shipping. So I reproduced the same trick as for 504. Beside that, I found and restored old firmware files on the drive. Those were versions 1.1.00 and 1.1.00 b. The latter one seem...

604 Wifi Plugins Unlock + Downgrade

I've successfully downgraded firmware by replacing a new OS version with an old one. I have 2 devices now with 2 different firmwares: the latest 1.6.53 (With HDD lockdown) and the oldest 1.3.10 (without HDD lockdown). I successfully used HD Clone software to clone the hidden partition of both device...

Re: Need libcrypto.so.0.9.7

Thanks, but I needed that library exactly for ARM. Anyways I've already found it. But I'm not sure if it compatible with my A704 Wifi.

UPDATE! DOWNGRADE 404 AND PLUGINS UNLOCK

I got 404 from ebay with 1.2.06 undocumented firmware. It didn't appear in bug fixes log. So I quickly did a backup of hidden partition with HD Clone. Then upgraded to 1.6.53 with locking down to the hard drive. Then again I did a backup of the hidden partition holding 1.6.53 operating system. After...

ARCHOS 704 WIFI DOWNGRADE+UNLOCK BOTH PLUGINS

INTERESTING INFO There are many owners who have their devices with latest firmware which disables GFT hack. This link shows the firmware versions where GFT doesn't work. I defined that 1.7.16 has the HD lockdown ability as 704TV does at 1.7.17. I enabled a scrollbar in Opera by using the symlink met...

704TV factory firmware file 1.7.17+Downgrade to 1.7.17

Hello everyone. I bought a 704TV on ebay with 1.7.17 installed. This is an initial OS version. Then I searched for deleted files on the drive and did a recovery of them. Thus I found a firmware file of 1.7.17. You will never find it on the Internet (actually it didn't appear at all) so here's the wa...

Re: Success Upgrading Archos 504 40gb to 160gb from Woot

Here's my topic where I shared the link to 1.1.06 hidden partition http://forum.archosfans.com/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=70333
I don't have an image of 1.4.03, but I do have 1.1.06 from which you can update your firmware to 1.4.03.
The link to 1.1.06 is http://www.4shared.com/zip/zdTKsW22ce/1106.html

Re: Archos 704 podcast plug in.

They stopped supporting old devices. Such a shame... Some guy sold me 2 plugins on Ebay. Just search 'Archos plugins' there and you will find a seller nelly1337 selling Android plugin. I just asked him about gen4 plugins. Let's wait a bit for his answer. But I have another way. I have Archos 704 wif...

Re: Help! USB is not connecting

You're right. But I recommend you to get another hard drive to find out what's the reason of your problem. If it will repeat then the player is damaged. Another reason could be bad connection. So in this case you should try another USB cable.

Re: Help! USB is not connecting

Sure, but only if you really need those files. I recommend you to buy an SSD to replace your hard disk. I'm using SSD. It is much reliable than HDD.

Re: Help! USB is not connecting

To extract needed files try to connect the hard drive directly to your laptop using IDE to USB adapter. It should work.

Re: Help! USB is not connecting

I need to know exactly when does it says device error(during boot or connect). Is there an error code? Seems to be a hard drive problem. You could try to connect the hard drive directly to your computer with some IDE-to-USB adapter.

Does it boot to OS? What exactly (video, music or any file) did you try to play in the car and what EXACT message did appear on the screen?

You should buy Western Digital HDD and change the serial number. Then it will start to work again

Re: Want to buy new archos but confused as so many available

Well, tablets don't record tv. If you want only to record tv then try TV+. If you want the device to be portable then you should choose something from gen4 or gen5 (except TV+). I didn't record tv, so I cannot recommend the exact device. Try to search for reviews or any comments about tv recording f...
