Re: for archos 605wifi firmware 1.8.07 (or anything >1.7.13)..

This is amusing :) If you format a usb stick as ext3 and create a symlink to /mnt/system in its top directory, then when you plug it into the minidock you can browse (with read/write privileges!) the entire hidden system directory from the archos file browser (via the symlink). I think that was alr...

I know of at least two other recent Archos devices which hold a larger harddisk than advertised.

Re: Pb connecting an A5 with SDE to PC

Use the recovery mode to connect via USB (press Vol+ when powering up the Archos).

I know that there are sometimes Archos devices which hold a larger physical disk than advertised. Just try the "format" option in the recovery menu (backup your data, of course).

Re: Moldy Cheese for 4 GB and 160 GB 605s

the way i understand the 160 is already solved it just needs to be written to flash instead of HD Yes. anyone know what the check for the kernel looks like? Yes, it's a lot of binary code. Are you asking for the check on the kernel or the check in the kernel (that checks the rootfs)? edit:@tlh ps t...

Re: for archos 605wifi firmware 1.8.07 (or anything >1.7.13)..

I can even relaunch the hacked avos from moldy cheese with all plugins enabled , but wifi is disabled so most of them are useless We hit on that problem before. I think you need to unload the wifi module before restarting avos. That and perhaps some others. Otherwise avos tries to insert it a secon...

Bubu had ubuntu on his a5 several weeks ago. He concluded that it wasn't the right thing for the a5 because it got dangerously hot and the harddisk would never spin down.

Re: Moldy Cheese for 4 GB and 160 GB 605s

Ahem, you should really know what you are doing. Removing the two checks in the first two bootloader stages won't give you much because there is still the rootfs signature check in the kernel init. The 4G can only boot from flash and you need to flash the hacked kernel (without the cramfschecker tha...

That was our original plan: exchange keys in flash, forge signatures with the new keys, make our own signed .aos files. That's why there is also a signing facility in archutil.

Re: Moldy Cheese for 4 GB and 160 GB 605s

is there a different firmware version for the 160g version?? its less clear to me why the 160 hack doesn't work Well, I don't really see a reason why it wouldn't work. It's the same firmware, the only problem is that the bootloader can't boot from harddisk and thus you need to flash the modified ke...

Have you tried ./archutil rather than just archutil? On a lot of linux installations the current path isn't in the $PATH.

Re: Writing software for the built in OS?

The problem is that avos is a monolithic monster that takes care of everything and does not expect anything else to mess with things. It just doesn't cooperate. You can easily add command line stuff and connect via ssh or telnet but that's not really of great use.
