CoPilot will not license on Archos tablets for now

Post by 675 Trip »

I just got off the phone with ALK and found that they have figured out why the Archos Tablets won't get a license.

Their license process is driven by IMEI and the A101 and A70 don't have an IMEI.

If someone can figure out a way to write one to the device (even temporarily) then the license would probably work.

The unit would then have to be rooted, and imei rewritten before running copilot, but it would probably work.

They just figured this out internally today, so it will likely be some time before they come up with an alternative validation scheme to issue licenses to our devices "which aren't supposed to be able to get to the market" anyway.
