Followed tips from the video/posts. No dice. Still can't see Maps or LauncherPro in the market. Not a huge deal as I have LauncherPro in APK form here already. As long as I have basic market access I'm fine but it would be nice to have full market at some point, which I'm assuming will come with root access and custom roms.

It works for me.
this did not work for me. The market still does not display "slingplayer mobile" or "graffiti for android". Do these apps show up in any of your markets? According to the appmonster app on my phone these two apps are designated as "protected", and all of the "protected" apps that I searched for in the market on my A70 do not show up.

I have slingplayer working but you have to side load it....probably the same with your other "protected" apps.

Just do a google search for slingplayer.apk. If not send me a PM. BTW the slingplayer works great.

call me a newbee re: archos 70.. got mine last week .. also own a droid 2 phone from verizon.
QUESTION: can someone explain how to do a side load of an app. I assume that means you somehow
pull the .apk file from the phone and place it on the archos 70 sdcard for later install. But how if your
devices are not rooted?

Giant fail trying to repackage the gapps4archos2.apk.... Gave it my best shot.

However, I can also confirm that the orig package + the commands to remove/readd youtube (few posts back) work perfectly. Still don't have 100% market apps, but close enough for now.

The info provided by this forum is great! You folks rock.

I have Market loaded and was able to remedy the You Tube glitch. I think my Market is the old version even though I downloaded a newer .apk and used Terminal Emulator to copy it to the app folder. There appears to be a protection feature preventing an overwrite or deletion. The Vending.apk in the app directory is listed as "0Vending" (764.12 K), version 1.82.

Am I using the newest Vendor.apk? When I search Market for Flash Player 10.1 there are no results, so I cannot get flash.

Any suggestions?

After Install you have to run the app once, than the thing is working.
I know. I installed the installer. Then I ran the installer and it said that the google application were downloaded. And in the list of app, it shows up. But when I click on "Market" it goes to a blank screen, then goes back...

Hello,

I'm having trouble using the RapidShare.com website on my Archos 70 Internet Tablet, especially in landscape mode. While the page displays, when I scroll around nothing new appears. While I can rotate the device and see in 4x3 mode, the "free" button doesn't function. You can press it, but it won't respond. I did validate the "free" button does work on say a Windows desktop / workstation system.

I have a paid pro Rapidshare account and was able to log into the site successfully and use the Pro button, but still couldn't get the free one to work.

Anyone else seen problem on this website with the Archos 70 IT browser?

If YouTube fails to install from the market, I assume you've installed the gApps4Archos2.apk.

To fix this, connect your Archos to your computer and head over to your ADB. Or you can start from the OR line if you want to use Terminal Emulator.

adb shell
rm /data/test/froyo/system/app/YouTube.apk


Reboot your Archos

Go back to the market, search for YouTube

Install

OR

Download Terminal Emulator and just type in the "rm..." line, then reboot, and download from the market.

I can confirm that it did have an effect!

Several notable Google applications now show up for me :o

I have summarized the steps so I can save everyone 9 minutes of their life. 8)

Go to: Settings->Applications->Manage Applications

Running Tab->"Market"->Clear Cache->Force Stop

Running Tab->"Google Services Framework"->Clear Data->Force Stop

Reboot
Just saved me a full wipe... Very well done both of you.
Still do not show up on my archos 70,does the country matter?

Search "YouTube" in the Market (not AppsLib), it should be the very first thing that comes up.

At least it does for me. I'm in the US, I'm not sure if that matters.

Hi All,
I updated my A70 to 2.2 I installed the market apk and I installed flash and the rest of my apps.
When I tested my system flash and youtube wasn't working, the system it self seemed to really bog down.

So I decided to uninstall the google apps using the new apk, after that my system was
much faster and youtube worked after I sideloaded it. Flash worked as well.

It works flawlessly.
Right now I do not trust the new market hack.
My suggestion is to install it and get the apps you want and uninstall Google apps.

Kinda of bummer. :?

ADB? I'm sorry but I don't know this term... Well, I do know it from work, but doubt its the same ... ADB isn't the Asian Development Bank, right? LOL ! :-)
