Thank you $aur0n,
I installed urukdroid 1.6 and it was great.
What got me interested in installing Urukdroid was because I heard that LUKS manager encryption works with Urukdroid firmwares.
Since in my Windows pc and Ubuntu Linux pc, I am using FreeOFTE software for encryption, I wanted to be able to copy encrypted volumes across different computers.
I installed Urukdroid 1.6 = LUKS manager didn't work.
I updated it to Urukdroid 1.6.2 = LUKS manager worked perfectly.
I then tried Urukdroid 1.6.3 hoping for less battery drain = LUKs manager didn't work.
I went up to 1.6.4 = LUKS manager didn't work.
Finally, I copied update 1.6.2 to Urukdroid update folder and let it install over 1.6.4,
= LUKS manager WORKED again!
So, for the moment, I guess I will have to stay with Urukdroid 1.6.2 if I want to use LUKS manager.
In any case, the Urukdroid experience was definitely better than the official Archos G8 firmware!
Since i am using FreeOFTE
