Re: Yet Another Root'd update.img available V0.27

Best Video App

Hey all,

Re: Yet Another Root'd update.img available V0.27

hey all!

newbie here when it comes to custom firmware, just a few questions if you'd all be so good

first off - how do i install this latest firmware?
is the mount.apk included as part of it?
if not - then how do i install the needed additional module?

Thanks a lot all :-)

Re: Archos 7HT - Video across wifi...

thanks chris, would that allow a network share to act as a local drive? sounds interesting! i gather i would have to install a different firmware to allow this?

Re: Archos 7HT - Video across wifi...

hmm mp4 isnt really much of an option, id need at least standard avi support. other options seem to be the orb approach which ive tried - but not at all good enough, any other things to try??

Re: Archos 7HT - Video across wifi...

i have used es file explorer on my htc fone - and it can indeed view video across wifi - but only mp4 (in the case of the htc). so is this a restriction of the app, or a restriction of the htc? in other words, will the 7HT only play mp4 via es file explorer, or will it play avi etc?

Cheers
