704 wifi hack or system replace

Post by keufsson »

I would really appreciate it if anyone has any experience with installing other os on the 704 wifi. I am thinking of Maemo 5 or ubuntu MID or anything else. i really want to use it for reading ebooks and all else of course but the ebook part doesn't really work on the 704. any experience welcome. thanks a bunch

There was one topic on this subbject before on getting qtopia to start on the 704.
After the latest firmware update this is no longer possible.
Archos has filled in the hole in the firmware code that was used as an exploit to start qtopia.

Some people whant to use the firmware from an 705 to get qtopia and some other apps to work but there is no way to do this cus archos has prevented it. After all the 704 and the 705 has the same components inside.they are identical.

I would also love if somewone hacked the latest firmware but I don┬┤t think there are anyone that is trying to breake down the code anymore.
