Progress with the Market?

I just wanted to make this post so when the market does happen for this tablet there is a place to let everyone know.

I personally have had no luck with finding one anywhere on the net yet.

Yeah, arctools claims to have an unreleased working version. But I worry about some things, like how they are requiring us to use their firmware. Updating that is very disruptive, and anyway Arnova just changed the 10g2 firmware which should mean a startover for arctools (7G2 next?).

Worse than that, google has released a new version of gmarket which excludes Archos gen8 from being an allowed type. You can still use market directly from your Archos, but no longer from the web gmarket to your device. Maybe the start of more restrictions or even a cutoff?

Meanwhile I am using amazon market, which was on my device before the firmware update removed it - lucky I backed it up. I don't like it much, but it works. Also I am downloading gmarket stuff on another device, backing it up, then transferring to the arnova ("sideloading") which is a lot of work and not always successful. And of course Appslib and now aptoide.com

This is the only thing that has come up so far that I have been able to find. unless someone is hiding something.
