Okay I have located gApps and after looking at the market4Archos and the file I downloaded I am confident I can update the old installer with new apps and XML editing. However I have to do some things for a bit now... Also I figure my A101 will arrive when I'm in the shower. (of course) So if anyone is inclined please post here, otherwise I want to have a market apk for both my devices today and until someone says I did something stupid... ;)

I called Archos and the 'A70S' ADB device driver isn't publicly available yet. Unless someone had a leaked version, we cannot ADB PUSH anything to the A70 yet.... no access!??

WTF? So now there are new magical things about development... and after I learned to code in java and C++...

I can view mine just fine on my Linux box with the Android developer pack. calling adb lists available commands and calling "adb devices" lists A70-...

Unless there is a specific Windows driver or something, but even that I doubt because you should just need the toolkit. Then again we're talking an operating system so brain dead you still have to reboot after installing an app.

Check your settings to make sure you even have debugging enabled under Applications -Development.

Then see my comments about why the instructions given here are pretty much unclear.

Finally... You called Archos? Do you think you got a programmer on the phone? Documentation and google are your friends.

PS - note I said I would be making an apk installer from the old one...

The A70S driver isn't native to windows. I'm not getting the A70 device listed using "adb devices" with my XP or Win7 laptop. Windows device manager shows its not installed.

I have debugging enabled.

I've built 3 android apps that are in the market and I'm a programmer by day so I know the basics, but cant find a compatible Windows driver. :|

Or you can do what I did, Download VMWare player and run one of the free ubuntu images. No drivers for ADB on linux.

To get the drivers working with Win7 (both 32 and 64-bit) simply navigate to your adb folder.

Go to usb_driver folder

Open android_winusb.inf in notepad.

Just ABOVE the line that says [Google.NTamd64], add these lines:

Code: Select all

;Archos 70
%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0E79&PID_1411
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0E79&PID_1411&MI_01


Then just ABOVE the line that says [USB_Install], add these lines:

Code: Select all

;Archos 70
%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0E79&PID_1411
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0E79&PID_1411&MI_01


Then plug your 70 with ADB debugging enabled into your USB port. When it asks for drivers, point it in the direction of that file.

Enjoy your newly ADB enabled A70!

Maybe it worked, lol... It's found and installed it as a Android device in Windows, but ADB DEVICES still shows nothings. I may have to reboot my PC though which I'd do soon.

Also if your still having issue kill the adb server and start it up again. adb kill-server and adb start-server. This helps at times when the adb server is already running.

Yeah, rebooting doesnt do it either. ADB works fine for my HTC Incredible and Samsung Fascinate.

Code: Select all

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

D:\>adb devices
* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
* daemon started successfully *
List of devices attached

{edit}: USB Debugging is enable

Create/Edit adb_usb.ini, add 0x0E79 inside. Save. Restart ADB service.
