Re: Apps Market place has stopped downloading

Well I got my downloads to work. Not sure if it was just luck though. All I did was uninstall one app which didn't seem to help, then I added one more app to my download list which seemed to kick start the process. Then all the other downloads finished and everything was done seemingly within 1 or 2...

Re: No sign of any new firmware then?

Realistically I don't think we'll be seeing Froyo for at least a very long time. My guess is Android 2.0 will come with the next update.

Re: Apps Market place has stopped downloading

Don't worry Martyn, my updates aren't going either. I'm not quite sure what could be causing it but I hope it fixes itself soon.

Re: Change in APIs is it a good sign?

Many APK used in A5IT right now can also run on Android 2.xx do anybody know which ones can run on both (A1.6) and (A2.xx)?
Someone can correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure any app that runs on 1.6 can run on 2.0, but not the other way around. Sorry I can't answer your other questions.

Re: Apps Market place has stopped downloading

Hello Michael, Thank you for the idea I don't think it is the problem in my case as I am using a 160GB A5A and I only have 33GB of video and a couple of GB of music so I should have quite a bit of space even though I have a few applications including Ndrive and Copilot I think I have over 80GB left...

Re: GPS and FM Transmitter/Receiver Chips Not Working.

You know the gps usually takes about 10 minutes to connect right? And you need to be outside with no trees, buildings, etc for it to be able to connect. It also helps if you're not moving. once you're connected the signal usually holds pretty well.

The classic controller plugs into the main (motion sensing) wiimote just like the nunchuck does. So it is not wireless by itself as you need to plug it into the wiimote.

Re: Apps Market place has stopped downloading

Just leave them downloading in the background and they will finish eventually. Sometimes adding downloads to the queue helps kickstart it. And don't be surprised if you have to wait days for some downloads to finish.

My Archos came with two types of USB cords.
yours came with 2 types? You actually got a chord that fits into the special Archos ports on the bottom?

Re: Another Tease

They've been having some troubles with the website lately. This hopefully means they're getting ready to release the new firmware soon. IMO I think they're just doing it to mess with us, since we've been complaining so much about a new update lately. :P

Re: Firmware 1.8 Predictions?

Michael, OpenGL would be sweet, but where do we benefit? It will affect video playback, right? OpenGL will enable us to play 3D games smoothly as well as the intensive 2D games that barely run right now. Our 5IT's have pretty good gpu's so I would love to finally be able to use them for something o...

Wiimote app just got an awesome update!

The Wiimote now supports multiple controllers as well as nunchucks and classic controllers. The control mappings are also configurable so that you can set the controls appropriately to use for any apps you want! I have not tested it yet (because I just updated 2 seconds ago) but I look forward to us...
