Archos 104 - Fatal crash during update

Post by craignus »

Hi,

I wanted to update my Archos 104 from 1.0.31 to 1.3.01, so I followed the official instructions : putting .aos file into the root folder of the 104's hard disk and choosing Update Firmware in the System menu.

It began to flash, but at about 15% of the progress bar, the device shut down and (not surprising) was unable to restart :cry:

Only the blue LED of the bottom flashes on when I push the power on button, but nothing else.

Because I'm now unable to flash my 104 with the inside menu, I would like to do it by the USB cable. I'm sure it is possible, but I didn't find the way to do it.

Can someone show me the way to flash it by the cable, or explain to me another solution that you know, please ?

Thanks

Sorry, there's no usb firmware route, the only people who can help you are archos. The reset is to hold down the stop button for over 20 secs but without a working firmware this won't help. Bad luck.
