Feel free to just copy the stuff from mine such as the previous versions links then delete my post or sticky mine and delete yours. I'm easy either way.

Just posted a message in my thread telling people to post their comments in this thread. Keep things neat that way.

I was surprised to not see the Flash code in this release though as I seem to remember a member of Archos staff saying it would be around version 2.2.x that we would see it.

seems like wifi channels above nr 10 aren't vissible any more, where I used to see more tah 10 routers I now only see 2

I tested Flash games in my Archos 70IT, I found the games run more smoothly. Thanks a lot, Archos!

Can anyone else confirm/deny this? My router is set to channel 11 so I don't want to end up in a state where I don't have wireless so can't downloaded the previous firmware. Without a working USB host I'd have to hook up to my desktop to revert.
