Not seeing the firmware update on Archos 32

Post by mailinglists4me »

I am going into settings --> about device --> firmware update and my tablet says I am up to date though I am still on firmware 2.1.8.

Does this install require downloading onto computer and then transferring to the archos tablet? Where would I put it if I did transfer it.

Can just wait - the ota is rolled out gradually to avoid a crunch. If you must, I think newbie tips sticky topic tells how to force a download.

I downloaded the update with Dolphin Mini from the Archos website & installed the program from the browsers "Download" file. I probably could of used the "Notification" window to install.

When I installed the last update I transferred from my computer, I had to change the file name. I had downloaded several previous updates. Each update adds a number in parentheses. I had to delete the number & the parentheses before the tablet updated.
