I will not flame anyone here, nor did I read about any threads where this happened. So just lean back, relax and watch the discussion .
All of these custom ROMs are, of course, to improve the abilities of the device. The standard ROM being delivered with the device (1.5) is capable of nearly everything (music, WIFI, video) but
- Google market place
- more space for applications
- apps above 1.5
- root rights
So if your stress is on video you will have to stay at the original ROM or take one of the modded 1.5s.
If you want to work with a lot of apps (over 20 MB) then you must take a custom ROM.
If you want to use apps higher than 1.5 you have to take a modded ROM higher than 1.5. But then you loose the video ability, as the dsp ddriver seems to be encrypted and has not been able to be compiled for the higher versions.
Awesome. Glad to know there are some nice people on the internet.
So basically I should probably just leave my Archos alone, huh? I'm not looking to instal a ton of apps. Actually the apps I have are just about all I need. I don't know what root access is or why I would need it and the Google Market place would be great but I guess I can live without it.
I guess my ultimate question then is there a ROM where I can get Flash AND Video or is that not possible?
