Google Marketplace, Maps, Gmail running on archos device!

Post by m4rk3t »

I have just managed to get android market, google mail, goole talk, etc. working on archos device: it has been tested on latest 1.4.8 firmware.
For now the install script relies on adb and is working on linux. Please report if it is working on your device.
I genuinely do not understand why archos or google are preventing users to use market on such devices...

My recipe: get the apks from devphone image http://developer.htc.com/adp.html and use the following installation script.

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh

# apk from http://developer.htc.com/adp.html 

LOCAL_DIR="`dirname $0`"
SYSTEM_HTC=signed-dream_devphone_userdebug-ota-150275

if ! test -d ${LOCAL_DIR}/system;then
	if ! test -f ${LOCAL_DIR}/${SYSTEM_HTC}.zip;then
		wget "http://member.america.htc.com/download/RomCode/ADP/${SYSTEM_HTC}.zip" || exit 1
	fi

	mkdir -p ${LOCAL_DIR}/system/framework || exit 1
	mkdir -p ${LOCAL_DIR}/system/app || exit 1

	unzip -j -o ${LOCAL_DIR}/${SYSTEM_HTC}.zip \
		system/app/Gmail.apk \
		system/app/GmailProvider.apk \
		system/app/checkin.apk \
		system/app/GoogleApps.apk \
		system/app/GoogleContactsProvider.apk \
		system/app/GooglePartnerSetup.apk \
		system/app/GoogleSettingsProvider.apk \
		system/app/GoogleSubscribedFeedsProvider.apk \
		system/app/gtalkservice.apk \
		system/app/Maps.apk \
		system/app/MediaUploader.apk \
		system/app/NetworkLocation.apk \
		system/app/SetupWizard.apk \
		system/app/Street.apk \
		system/app/Talk.apk \
		system/app/Vending.apk \
		system/app/YouTube.apk \
		system/app/Calendar.apk \
		system/app/CalendarProvider.apk \
		-d ${LOCAL_DIR}/system/app || exit 1

	unzip -j -o ${LOCAL_DIR}/${SYSTEM_HTC}.zip \
		system/framework/com.google.android.gtalkservice.jar \
		system/framework/com.google.android.maps.jar \
		-d ${LOCAL_DIR}/system/framework || exit 1
fi

adb push ${LOCAL_DIR}/system /data/test/system || exit 1

exit 0

Installation archive is there http://rapidshare.com/files/312658341/m ... s.zip.html but limited to 10 downloads...

Interesting! Who can confirm this works and post snapshots or even videos?

I found a rapidshare link to the file that doesn't have the 10 downloads limit: http://rapidshare.com/files/312721352/market4archos.zip

It'd be nice with a working Google Listen as well: http://rapidshare.com/files/270129235/c ... listen.rar

I think the latest rumor that someone posted here in the forum after having spoken to an Archos tech support guy, is that Archos is planning for full Google Experience with Market and everything to be officially available around the middle of December with the Android 2.0 firmware update. That Archos has submitted all the paperwork to Google for the certification of the Archos hardware for 2.0 Marketplace and all the Google Apps.

Maybe this is a dumb question, but can you elaborate on the install process?

Or a link to learn about adb?

Why does no one use MediaFire already? Links would be helpful that work...

Gee: tried it on my device and it works! I am a linux user so it was easy to launch the script. Just put your Archos5 IT in adb connect and run install.sh. You need afterwards to reboot and there is a new android registration wizard.

I think that you need to have the ADB connection setup and you need use the Android SDK tools on Linux: http://forum.archosfans.com/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=26483

If someone who has these Google Apps working would like to post some pictures and even videos, that would be really cool, and I would post that as news on the http://archosfans.com blog..

I'm on Ubuntu but I haven't tried setting up this ADB connection thing yet.

Yesssss perfect !!!!
This works great !!!!
Installed and market works

The only command you need on xp is the following when you managed to dowload market4archos.zip

adb push system /data/test/system

Going to try and see what i can install with this.

Thanx for the tip.

edit:

google listen could be downloaded through market and works also.

Ah, ok... That's a shame... I wish there was a way for regular users to get the Google apps on their Archos 5IT!
