You can't make any changes to official firmware- it's designed that way.

thank you gen_scheisskopf for your prompt reply. I have one more question, how do i remove temp root after SDE.

thx

Unhappy
Okay, I think I'm pretty much ****ed.

First I installed this ROM and everything worked fine.
I wanted to play Asphalt though, so I edited build.prop and /system/etc/init/init.A80S.rc (I have a 80 normal one) to match a Galaxy Tab...
Now, when I rebooted (I just hit reboot in the rom) my tablet doesn't boot anymore. It just keeps on repeating the Archos animation. Is there any way to fix this? Can I get into ADB and restore the .rc file (I have renamed the original to .bak) or can I reflash this rom and if so, how?

I'm used to CWM recovery and flashing zips. I'd have formatted the data partition and reflashed the rom to fix this, but I have no idea what to do on this tablet.

Please, how can I fix this?

EDIT: I wanted to reflash the rom but of course I cannot put the files in the internal storage. Onto the SD card is no problem, but how do I get it onto the storage? :'(

Please pardon my newbie status. As a little back ground, I am very familiar with rooting on my phone, but rooting on my tablet seems to be a different sort of animal.

I have a question; what is sde? I did a search and didn't really find anything to satisfactorily explain it. I found stuff about booting into it, but everything I found seems to go on the assumption that I should already know something about it. Please explain, for me, in as simple method as possible. Thank you so much.

SDE= Special Development Edition.
It allows to run unsigned kernel (official firmware and kernel are signed so we can't mod them)

HI!

First download this => http://www.4shared.com/zip/dZflFdoO/1_2.html
- for pre-rroted device !
-end for enable SDE take a look here => http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1360840

Connect your device with USB cable ( into device check on Settings-> USB Debugging ON);
- > adb push 1 /data/local
-> adb push 2 /data/local
-> adb shell
-$ chmod 755 /data/local/1
-$ chmod 755 /data/local/2
-$ ./data/local/1
-$ exit
-> adb reboot
********
-> adb shell
-$ ./data/local/2
-$ exit
-> adb reboot

-# rm /data/local.prop
-# exit

*******
....now you can install ( enable sde ) ......

Hi,

I have an Archos 101 G9 Turbo (SN 502057) with an OMAP 4460.

Every time I try to flash to ICS rooted rom or the custom blue rom with the drive405 files the device doesnt load.

Then i load the drive files from:

pocketpc.ch/archos-android-tablets/156565-root-fuer-archos-g9-android-4-ics

The device loads with this files but with a sum of memory of 371MB against 229GB.

Does the drive405 files run on the OMAP4460?
I hope anyone can help me or I had helped you with this info.

stay cool
best regards

tobst

405 should work on the 4460 as well :S but I have the 4430 so I don't really know.

I've got a question though to the devs out there:
What is the difference between this kernel and the stock one? (If I compile a kernel based on archos ics sources, can I use that directly or is there some patch I need to make?)

It was a question to petru because it is his thread and his rom. The drive405 files doesnt work and I dont know how.
