Archangel one-click-root from the Archaism Team
This will give you temporary or permanent root on your Archos 101 - firmware 2.0.71
Archos are kind enough to provide a SDE firmware which can allow root access,
but involves some significant changes to the system and they say that they will
invalidate your warranty if you install it. This is a bit frightening for new owners.
Archangel solves this with a painless one-click-root which you can uninstall at any time.
It does not use the SDE developer firmware.
This was specifically designed for the Archos 101 with firmware 2.0.71 - it may work on
other Archos devices or firmwares, but has not been tested and is not recommended for them.
