hello all, I was just wondering since many devices are going to get android 4.0 if the archos 43 was going to get the 4.0 update.

The chances of getting official update are al most 0, chances of getting custom ROM are around 50%.

ok well thanks for the official part, I guess archos really must not care for there g8 series but that is neither here nor there. However as to the un-offical update who do you think will be making it available for this (or this generation) of devices?

Quite sadly software support for the archos devices is something of a joke.

Most devices haven't even got gingerbread support let alone icecream.
There is third party support to some degree for gingerbread but its still sort of half-baked.
Which is still a amazing job since they don't have all the money and info large companies use.

let's not forget that the A43IT (like all Gen 8 devices) only has 256MB of RAM. I know Android is touted as being constantly improved with respect to memory management, but I really doubt it'll run very well on 256MB...

Its true some of the hardware out there had more memory but there are some with the same amount.

We already know gingerbread works on the gen 8 models its merely archos not willing to pay for it.
