jailbreaking with 1.7.17 firmware

Post by karelturk »

Did not found the adequate answer at this forum... Is it possible to jailbreak my ARCHOS 7 with upgraded to 1.7.17 firmware? And also could not find understandable instructions- how to swap HDD?

All jailbreaking is done from 1.6.54 or lower and the first step is to downgrade your version (I don't know if 1.7.17 can be because I did it with 1.7.11). In case you don't have the info here is the link that I used to jailbreak mine.

Once you downgrade and then install a patched firmware then you can think about replacing the hard drive. you have to be careful in regards of the HD brand you use. As far as I remember from old posts everybody have problems when trying WD, I know that Seagate Momentus work because that is the brand Archos uses. I used a 500 Hitachi without an issue (it is almost a year and had no problems). I am about to see if the new 750 GB from Seagate works, I haven't checked in the forums if someone else had tried.

I have been looking forward that the good people from
archos.g3nius.org post a patched 1.7.17 firmware but so far with no luck.

Anyway this is my own experience, maybe others have a better recommendation or suggestion. I hope this helps you a bit and if you find any extra info I would appreciate if you share it with me.

P.S. whatever brand you decide to use don't forget the form factor. the hard drive must be 9.5mm high so do not use the 12mm ones because they won't fit.

karelturk... I understand your fear, if you have never done anything like this it might be a bad idea but I can tell you that I made a few mistakes myself in the beginning and did not brick my device. In any case If you can not follow instructions in english it would not be advisable for you to do it. A friend maybe? Someone with enough expertise?.
