Default Have I bricked it?

Hello,

I think I messed up trying to root my device.
Now I only have a flashing logo and I don't have the proper files anymore to re-install my firmware.
I still can get into recovery, so I just need the correct kernel and AOS files.
Can anyone help me?

Thanks!

Download the stock .aos file from the archos site, and select "Update Firmware". Plug into your PC and copy the .aos file to that drive that appears. Select OK on the device. Wait and then select reboot. Now you can attempt root again, making sure that the file is called the correct name, and you are not following my method on a 250gb version or the 250gb root on a flash version

Thanks, I did that, but I'm getting error 206, so the firmware does not install.
I think it has to do with the proper kernel version I'm using, that's why I asked also for those files.

You sure you're on G9 and downloaded G9 firmware?

Pretty sure the needed kernel is in the aos file

Well, on my console it is printed: ARCOS 10i G9
And from the archos website I chose the gen9 edition,

Are you sure I only have to install the aos file and the kernel is part of it?

Well, solved it by accident I think.
I did a full erase of all partitions and tried to re-install the firmware and guess what - it worked

Oh man, am I a happy fellow again

Now back to the rooting business...
