You ahve version one of the tablet, and therefor have Android 1.5. Archos has said that there will be no more updates for this version of the tablet. There are custom roms with new versions of Android on the forum. There is a thread with a list of releases and the Wiki explains how to install a custom firmware.

Take a look here for the existing custom ROMs and their features.

Take a look here on how to flash these ROMs.

The main question at the moment is: Do you need video on your device ?
If yes, then you are bound to Android 1.5, because the hardware driver for the GPU is encrypted and could not yet be implemented in a higer version.
If you do not need video necessarily then the best would be (in my opinion) the 2.1 Beta 6.
But have a look yourself.

Please excuse my lack of knowledge, I am new to this. Am I to understand that I can flash the firmware on my A7hb with a different firmware version and the only negative issue will be that I can't see video?
