Re: First Qtopia app ported to Qt/604/5 ?

As a proof of concept, and because it might be useful, I got the source for TreeExplorer/QT , a file manager app for Qtopia, and recompiled it for the 604/5. I installed the .ipkg package using the Qtopia package manager, and it worked :) Is this stand-alone without starting bubus Qtopia port? I th...

Re: Windows Mobile 5 - 6 - 7

Thanks to the great support on this forum, we have an ID on most of the hardware on the Archos 605, How hard would it be to install Windows Mobile or Windows CE? See, so far all people involved are linux users and therefore port linux-based runtime environments. I guess you Windows users can take c...

Re: Using Opie on Qtopia

Now that you have Qtopia can you run the (Open Palmtop Integrated Environment (Opie)). Bubu has already run Opie on the 605. The problem with Opie is that it is almost dead. It was a fork of Qtopia and the most recent Opie version is more up to date than the Qtopia version that corresponds to the l...

Re: Offline

Is there any reason that Qtopia will not run while not near an access point? I had it running all fine and dandy when i was connected to my ap last night but this morning at work, when i clicked the pdf, it said "loading" at the bottom then went back to the file explorer. Thanks. 604 or 605? The 60...

Does it mean there is nothing availible at the moment? Or does it mean that it is impossible to run qtopia or other hacks on the archos 604 non wifi? The hack is based on an exploit of an error in the setup dialog for wireless connections. Since such a not available on non-wifi versions of the 604/...

Obviously, no-one is expecting a slick interface but I was wondering about gOS.

Wiki on gOS

A PMA has 64 MB of RAM and a 150 MHz ARM processor. Go figure.

Re: Qtopia for Archos 604 non-Wifi?

Hi I┬┤m very happy that you can hack the Archos but in this topic everyone tells that qtopia runs on the archos 604 wifi and 605 wifi, but whats about the archos 604 non wifi? Is there any hack availible for it? No. And what can you do with the hack, cause I┬┤m thinking about to buy the cinema Plug...

Does this procedure has the side effect of enlarging the harddrive partitions if one loads a newer firmware than the orginal firmware supplied on the unit(605)? It should if you go through the procedure after having updated to one of the most recent 605 firmwares (1.7.06 or 1.7.13 should work). Ear...

This is why, I respectfully submit, it's better to point your Qtopia $HOME directory at the FAT filesystem, where there's plenty of room. I agree with you. On the PMA this worked without problems even when connecting via USB with Qtopia running. There was a hotplug-script in the PMA OS that tried t...

when I select the .pdf file in my archos, It's loading for a few seconds, and And it returns to the directory (and my archos wallpaper have some little change). I have a suspicion that this is due to the hidden partition being too small. Apparently the hidden partition was only about 90MB for older...

If we ever get wireless and an internet browser working then the forum may well be attacked by archos lawyers, so don't expect it soon. Don't think so. What should be illegal about hacking the device? We haven't broken any copyright protection mechanism and we won't. And even if some archos lawyers...

bubu: can you please post exactly which partitions you formatted? I really don't want to brick my 605 :) I understand that you have to remove all partitions. When you restart the 605, it will perform all required actions to set up the partitions right. Apparently the 1.7.13 firmware sets up a large...

Re: Will Archos ever learn?

Is sad, very sad, how some people can be so technically savvy to create such device and so clueless about long term business strategy. That's because the people who develop the devices aren't the same as those who decide on the strategy. Every engineer would decide for the open platform, every mana...
