Yes, since you have to (in the process) install the Special Developer Edition (SDE) firmware to do this.danrulz98 wrote:There's probably an obvious answer to this, but does this remove the ability to play DMR protected files, as it says on the Archos page for the SDE firmware?
as you have already read...
Important notices to be acknowledged before downloading and installing the SDE firmware:
* Be aware that after installation, your device will loose the capability of playing DRM (digital rights management) protected content (e.g. videos that are present on the Archos Media Club).
* It is possible to restore the ARCHOS back to a traditional firmware, but it will not be able to play DRM protected content anymore. This functionality will be lost forever when applying the SDE firmware.
* Once the SDE firmware is installed on a device, this device will be watermarked and ARCHOS will be able to detect that this firmware has been installed once.
* Installing the SDE firmware is considered by ARCHOS as a voiding of the warranty and ARCHOS declines all liability and responsibility for any issues resulting from the installation of this SDE firmware.
* ARCHOS strongly advises that only experts in embedded software development should install this firmware.
* This firmware is provided "as is" and is not supported by ARCHOS.
