Brand New Archos 5 IT -- won't install any APK apps

Post by chaircrusher »

Subject line says it all. Unboxed yestereday, upgraded to 2.0.38 firmaware. No matter what APK file I ask it to install it says "X could not be installed on this device"

That includes the Applib_2 that the Archos website recommends I install.

as silly as this sounds, but have your registered your device yet?

I'm not sure if it'll matter but seem that these things are rather locked down until they are registered. I'd try that first if you haven't.

After that, i'd say do a clear system cache and try to install the programs again.


and if all that fails, try to install the firmware again.

I just bought an archos 48 and unpackaged it today, and it's doing the same exact thing. I tried installing applib before and after a firmware update with no luck at all. Also, registering makes absolutely no difference to the IT because media club is now down, so it can't give any updates anyway. Very irritating...
