Everyone in the UK knows what November 5th is famous for. Perhaps there is a twist in the tale?

If you go read Achilles's thread in the hacking section, you will notice the last hack was not released til the end of the day in the US. My guess is he's from here in the States... so while some of you UK gents are sleeping it will be released.

Also, I don't know if it will be posted over here at first, so check the hacking section throughout the day.

SOMETHING will be released, I have no doubt. Don't get your hopes up too far though because while what Achilles is doing is HUGE, its not just going to be a turnkey hack just yet. What he is providing is a hack/proof of concept for the 6th gen devices. All this means is that he's opening the door for someone else to write a FW or port a FW over to it.

Reading through his thread in the hacking section will enlighten anyone who doesn't fully know what's going on.

Yeah i read his posts on the hack forum while most of it was way over my head(lots of technical stuff) i di get the jist of it i.e the guy needs a lot of help with a lot of stuff but that as you say he is going to show proof of concept.

This means no ubuntu or android right off the bat like iv seen some guys asking about in posts.

Lets not get over hyped about this people this is just the start of a long road, hopefully a good raod that leads our cracking wee machines into nice and happy places filled with light and flowers and no longer will we be chained to the tyrranical yoke of those french autocrats and their namby pamby FW that lets you do F**K all with your machine.

I have a jailbroken itouch and my only hope is that some day we can have a firmware that allows much more freedom.

If anyone knows any hackers who are willing to try and port a android or ubuntu FW over to the Archos then give them a shout as only by reaching out to the community at large will this happen folks it wont happen just by wishing it.

what have people been able to accomplish in the time since moldy cheese was released back in october?

Running Backtrack 4 preferably or Ubuntu would be dope ;) love to have pentesting and network manipulation at the tip of my fingers :)

Just posting here to say that I'm excited too about whatever is coming, I mean I was almost to the point of just giving my Archos away. We'll see.

Technically, it's still the 5th of Nov in other parts of the world. Maybe Archilles is based in the US.

He's probably busy finishing it up, final cleaning, whatever. He'll produce, I'm sure.

maybe the french archos police have found out where he lives and have sent the bpys around to his place....

either that, maybe he has posted on here but the "love archos to death" owner has deleted it and blackbanned him....

just some theories....

Lets hope he needed to do a quick fix and will release it tomorrow. My fingers are crossed.
