Are you planning to post instructions now, or do some more work first?
As for the firmware version, the bootloader is a (heavily modified) 1.7.13, the firmware is, as you can see, 2.1.04. And no, this is currently not possible for bootloaders >1.7.13 as Archos decided to activate the lockdown feature of the bootflash which makes writing to the bootflash impossible. However, I still have hopes to find a way of hacking that, we will see (if I ever have enough time for that...)

im glad i've never upgraded from fw: 1.7.13
also can you tell us how to get the extra (hidden) plugins?

And I should point out that, while this is a sterling effort from grond
That is, if you have 1.7.13 you can now upgrade to 2.x without losing the ability to hack.
