Re: Install for UrukDroid

OK Sorry... didi a little RTFM and poking around. When you log into the developer edition it mounts the drive for you where you copy the files to. Took me a few minutes to put 2 and 2 together on it but now it makes sense....

Currently looking at the big UD logo and watching it install...

Re: Install for UrukDroid

Oh I should clarify... I am in the SDE right now, I jut need to know where to copy the files to. I am following these instructions: http://code.google.com/p/urukdroid/wiki/Installation#Step_one But am unclear on that piece. Do I just copy the initramfs.cpio.gz, zImage and UrukDroid-install.tgz to th...

Install for UrukDroid

Hey Guys, I was hoping the new firmware was going to resolve my WiFi issues, but after upgrading to it my WiFi issues persist. I still cannot access and resources on WPA networks. I can connect, get and hold an IP address, but thats it. No internet, no file shares etc... nada. I am going to install ...

Re: Firmware 2.3.81 released - report bugs here

So just to clarify, I need to totally wipe the device right?

Do a totally clean install of 2.3.81?

Nevermind... nevermind. Helps if you read ALL of the posts. :lol:

Re: new firmware 2.3.26 - report bugs here

Okay, I've been very patient, positive and open minded with this firmware... but I've had it with random reboots (while in browser), dropped wi-fi conections anytime anywhere, and sick of apps going to the Cuckoos Nest for lack of RAM. Count me in with those clamoring for the fixes! Ya know I get t...

Re: New Gen 8 Firmware within 2 weeks

To put it bluntly... Installing the SDE does not COMPLETELY void your warranty. HARDWARE faults are still covered, such as a dead back-light, a dead USB port, or a speaker failing. SOFTWARE faults are not covered, such as installing a bootloader or recovery that overwrites the Archos one, and the d...

Re: New Gen 8 Firmware within 2 weeks

I'm pretty sure there are people in this forum that have had their devices fixed/replaced under warranty that have had SDE installed... Interesting... Per Archos's website: Installing the SDE firmware is considered by ARCHOS as a voiding of the warranty and ARCHOS declines all liability and respons...

Re: Six months of USB problems

I understand what you mean, but you forget one thing: user experience. I had a 3 Ghz intel P4 with 1 Gb of ram and windows xp 8 months ago and now I have a quad core processor pc with windows 7 and 4 gb of ram. Basically I do the same things with it but faster, and now I can see 1080p videos somtim...

Re: Just Ordered a Tablet

I use Leawo to copy movies to my Archos. http://www.leawo.com/dvd-to-avi-converter/comparison.html It is free, converts from DVD to AVI format and since it is AVI it will play on pretty much anything. With the free version you can't get super "high quality" conversion (You need the paid version for ...

I still run a backup desktop system that I built which uses a Pentium III and I run Linux and Windows ME on it, and you know what? I can do almost everything I can do with my office Win XP Pro, just a little slower. A P3 with WinME!?!?! I personally think thats awesome!! Until recently I've been a ...

Sorry to hear of your troubles dragonlui.
