yes you get root access and yes you can modify the system files, but after a reboot, everything is reverted

thx for the quick reply

but if i use step 4 of your howto:

Quote:

(optional!) permanent root
thus it will boot always the custom kernel (to revert, reinstall Android firmware)

* reboot Archos device and hold down "Vol-" button after screen went black
* Go to "Recovery Menu" and then "Developer Edition Menu"
* choose "Remove Android Kernel"
* reboot

then should be everthing fine...

changes to system directories / files aren't saved on disk (tmpfs) so after a reboot all changes are reverted, even if you boot again into root.

either you go with the very custom UrukDroid or wait some time until myself or someone else starts investigating into this (my approach would be, using stock archos firmware and add simple but persistent r/w acces, no less no more)

Slightly OT but am currently using UrukDroid and am pretty happy with it. However, it is always good to see different people's ways of implementing things, so if you do decide to look into rooting your way, I'd certainly be up for giving it a try!

Anyone tried with the 250GB A70?
I will do tonight, but away from my charger to connect for the initial upgrade.
