I did the same manipulation on 2.1, without results.

The Froyo used has been compiled for RK2808 APAD.
The 2.1 comes from ZTE phone.

I think that's why the handling not work.

Files. so are not the same.

I've done (well - knightdominion done it in the past, I've just use it) 290mb (230mb free) of Internal Device Storage:
Image
Sorry for just photo, but SreenShotIt won't work, because some root problems.

Here it's - http://hotfile.com/dl/90587135/4006b82/ ... b.img.html
(mirror - http://www.multiupload.com/Z9RBZ8KUF5)

If You are coming from Sir Dom's ROM (290mb one), just flash it like any other image, then You land with 230mb of free Internal Storage.
If You are coming from any other ROM You might have to flash twice:

- flash image, format Internal Flash Storage with Your PC to FAT32
- flash image again
- done

Note: REMEMBER, You are doing it on Your own risk.

I sent my repaired version (video) has madmalkav on Slatedroid.

I await his reply ;)

Market ok
wifi ok (no re-connect at boot)
video ok now (MP4, SPB TV, Youtube No HQ)
Usb ok
root ok
adb ok
Gallery ok
OiFileExplorer ok
Winamp ok

There is one thing that not work
wirelless No re-connect at re-boot.

tried may's image... now my internal device storage available space is 225MB.


The Kobo reader installs OK, books download but won't open, and books imported from the SD card make the application crash. The only ebook reader that seems works OK is Aldiko.

The firmware must be adapted to the 7HT, I will look into it when I have some free time. For the little time I could test, there are some problems with the Wifi and the internal memory isn't recognized at all because of the Vold version used from Froyo. So give us some time to work on this.

Better to finish 2.1 first as you seem to be very close.

At the moment we have incomplete versions of 1.6, 2.1 & 2.2 floating around.

While I would love to see the A7HT with 2.2 (or even better 2.3) I am not convinced the hardware can really handle them.
Finishing 1 version of either 1.6 or 2.1 seems the best goal - then bench testing against the original 1.5 stock or custom roms.

As an experiment its great but a lot of us just want to have something better than 1.5.

However there have been OVER 2000 downloads of himself's 0.27 rom from www.a7ht.co.cc, and that means there are alot of people looking for a better A7HT experience.

Hello pettipiere,

I also work on FW 1.6 for APAD.

Have you integrate the icons in The Status bar?

If so can I have a link to your file framework?

I could advance the work of my hand.

Thank you in advance

Sorry to get your hopes up...
All I do is support by providing the site: http://www.a7ht.co.cc

I have left my programming days way... way... way... behind me :)
now I limit myself to CSS, PHP (editing) and HTML

What i meant was on this forum we have:

  • 1.5 custom firmwares by: knightsdominon, vdelf & of course himself based on the original (actually V2) Archos firmwares and the later based on the 15th Sept firmware.
  • 1.6 - Started by kornyone
  • 2.2 - Started by theplague - and until recently I believe still being worked on
  • and then finally 2.1 - Originally "announced" by sean - who was never heard of again - probably a prank, and now based on your Apad work and showing serious promise

We have a lot of talent here on the A7HT fans forum - however I am not one of them, just a lowly webdesigner :)
So apart from hosting images I have done nothing toward these various firmwares.

Cheers,

Chris

Currently I would say the himself v0.27 SamJr Yar - see www.a7ht.co.cc for download.

READ THE INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY

It's based on the latest Archos firmware and is rooted and has extra space, Gapps
