Vdelf's firmware (I hope Vdelf won't take offence) was a stop gap until Himself's new firmware was released, the only real difference is that he got Google Market place going (I am not running it down) but it isn't rooted and come with the same app storage size.

Vdelf released his version of the firmware because we asked him to... Many thanks to Vdelf

However I would suggest you go for the V0.27 SamJr YAR released by himself this week. SamJr is also based on the new firmware and is rooted with a larger app storage. The zip also includes the Google market.apk and this is also a great improvement over the previous version.

Just remember when installing ANY of the new firmwares the tablet can look like it's locked make sure you have the tablet on mains and be patient - Go watch a film, relax.

Both firmwares are available for http://www.a7ht.co.cc

the real decision come down to this - Vdelfs firmware is really the stock image with some improvements via tweaking meaning it should be easy to go back to the original version. Himself's version changes a lot more and so to go back to the Archos released version will require a bit more work - entirely possible but unlikely you will want to do it.

Cheers,

Chris

Sorry dude! :p

On a respectful note I did suggest kornyone PM'ed you for help with his 1.6 version.
see this thread - viewtopic.php?f=59&t=37983&start=0
Himself has said he would take a look when he has some time (baby and all this firmware must be killing him).

Just a quick question as it seems i didnt get it: are the current "custom" fw (eg SamJr V 0.27) for the A7HT based on the new official firmware released on 15th September? Because the touchscreen calibration is way better now. TIA!

Living in Vietnam and with new ROM, I can not see my language (Vietnamese) with the browser (such as web vnexpress.net)
In fact that, the new ROM did not support unicode fonts.

Anybody tell me how to solve this issue. How can I install new font to Archos 7HT such as Arial unicode?

I'm thinking about going back to the official ROM from V0.27 SamJr YAR

Have been reading up about how to do it but am unclear about which Roms I need

Do I need to load the older Archos Rom from earlier in the year which I can't actually find anywhere

Or can I just load the one from 15/09/2010?

Hi,

You can use the update.img to go back to the official firmware, but you will have to reformat the internal memory, as the latest official firmware assumes it is always formatted correctly and the check_data.sh script only does repairs, not formats. What you can do is a setrecovery --reboot --wipe_all instead of the usual setrecovery --reboot --wipe_data, and that will run mkdosfs to format the internal storage as well. If the device shows up with an Archos partition under Windows, it doesn't for me, hence the issue, you can use windows to format it to fat32.

Cheers!
