Hi guys,

I've let my archos 101 charging overnight a couple of times but it never reaches 100% (more like 95%)

Is this an overcharge protection or something? So would the device have charged to 100%, then stopped the charge and started discharging?

Cheers

It isn't an overcharge protection, it's a known issue since the firmware 2.3.20.
The battery doesn't load to 100% and the battery life is shorter.

That's the reason, why I did a downgrade to the firmware 2.1.08.

For a downgrade, you have to follow this tutorial.

After the tutorial, download the 2.1.08 firmware here: Klick!
Then copy the file to your Archos and install the 2.1.08.

The only stupid is, that all your apps and saved files will be deleted, so you've to backup them.

The functionality is the same. The 2.1.08 firmware is more stable and the battery loads to 100%. The battery life is more than 30% better, I tested this on my Archos 70.

I recommend the permanent root (Klick!), because you can delete the Archos updater, so you don't see the notifications of an update to 2.3.26.
