Re: Touchscreen sucks

I had a lot of double strikes in the beginning too. Maybe I got used to typing softer or harder on the screen, or maybe they've made it less responsive to double taps.

Re: Kick Stand does not close all the way

I've had that problem too. You can put it back by pressing with a nail on the middle of the stand.

Also, to get you off your worries: The stand will loosen after a couple of weeks, so in a few weeks it closes better.

Re: WIFI Users, Please Read!!!

I use a cheap SMC router and can connect almost everywhere in the house (which is actually a 15-20meters including multiple walls). The office in the backyard have installed a US robotics router as well, so we have internet in the backyard. There are some slight problems with that one, but that's a ...

Hey guys, A part (or entirely?) of the source code of the internal software has become downloadable. Why and such is unclear, but this is quite interesting. Hackers can look for openings and the such. I've got some programmign experience and will look tonight if i can find anything usefull, but am a...

Re: Clock settings > Display on stand-by not working

Thanks for the answers, you both :) @parkit I don't like using stuff for applications my devices can already do better (i.e. A calculator on windows, when windows already has one...), so the flash won't be something i'll use (i have some installed though). I think you're right about only seeing it w...

Re: NEW FIRMWARE - 1.0.87 - October 13th

I am glad to hear that the new s/w seems to be working better for most people. But I am still having many problems connecting to WiFi reliably. I have all settings basically set to the default with just a 10 digit WEP key. No other device has any issue. 1) does any body else still have problems con...

Re: flash games (and software)

Here is a site that had flash games that were specifically put on the page because they work with the 605. So, while some games don't work because you don't have buttons, most are just controlled by the tip of your finger:

There are about 100 flash apps :)

Re: Next firmware in 48 hours (thursday or friday)

Nintendo's aim is not to let people use an internet browser. Hell, I even find a browser on my archos 5 a bit too much, since i can only browse when i'm at home (where i have 2 pcs and a laptop)! Nintendo created the DS for gaming, and the only reason for wifi was online gaming... Then again: You sa...

Re: Next firmware in 48 hours (thursday or friday)

The way you feel about the DS, Charbax, is the way we feel about the Archos 5. No matter how hard you defend, it will always have its flaws. And though you don't care about those flaws, we do. Personally I don't care the DS can't connect to WPA protected WiFi, because I use WEP encription... All in ...

Re: Next firmware in 48 hours (thursday or friday)

There are extra procedures in releasing the firmware. Such as testing a lot to make sure it is secure. And removing things that are not finished. Embedded Linux programming is some of the most advanced in the world, everything is super optimized, there is absolutely no bloat in the code.. Archos re...

Re: Next firmware in 48 hours (thursday or friday)

Since we all know that the firmware is far from perfect, Archos could make it a little easier on us by just uploading a new firmware each friday. I don't care if it contains but 2 bug fixes, but I want to know the firmware is still worked on on a weekly basis (or even bi-weekly)

Re: 3 pixel policy

I feel sorry for all with a stuck pixel. I have my own sad story of stuck pixels ;)

I ordered my Archos 5 from a website (pixmania), where they have a money back option. So i just sent it back when i found out i had a stuck pixel (will take 3 weeks before they confirm...)

Re: Browsing Music by Cover

I am especially interested in this too, because i think iPods coverflow is just pure genius. Therefore I'd already charbax and other 5 owners if it was already incorporated, but sadly, no... This funciton is explained in the user manual, but is not available in the beta firmware...
