just for the record, you can operate some flash objects (.swf and .flv) from the file browser on the archos even without the opera plugin, you cannot as far as i know use the widgets tho.

would it hypothetically be possible to interpret the IR remote codes (my understanding of ir remotes is they are basically a series of on and off or 0's and 1's) and then bypass the need for the ir circuitry by wiring a keyboard directly to the leads for the IR receiver module?? i bet you could rig ...

i think there was a post on the open pma /ng wiki about how to access the second partition relating to the hack on firmwares before 1.08 (or whatever the latest is) but like others have said, we think there is also a flash boot sector which loads only signed modules

I wonder if we can find something in the way of an image file exploit or a html/javascript hack or some such to gain root? We have a pretty good idea about what gpl'd code is being used right? (or is there less available in terms of what libraries are being used etc than i'm assuming?) ex: "A buffer...

I believe Sideways stated on the board that he was unable to run the GFT hack after his update. That being said (forgive me if this is dumb, im not much of a programmer) would it maybe be possible to gain root access through another method? (such as http://it.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=08/02/10/201...

The website implies it is "intel" specific. As the 605 is ARM based this seems unlikely to ever work.

Just buy an a/v switch! $20 from radioshack.com and no more unplugging and re-plugging... you could probably even find em cheaper if you shop around (or could even get splitters for like $8 if you wanna be lazy)

Sorry to sound like an echo, but sounds like its worth checking the backlight/contrast/brightness settings and also possibly doing the recharge discharge thing (not for the life of the battery, but to possibly try and re-calibrate the meter)

probably impossible. the docks only carry composite and s-video ins for recording which have the hardware limitation of 480p.

(maybe you are in PAL or something, but my us a605 records in 640x480, aka 480p or EDTV)
