Hi,

Do I need to extract the rar file under root previlege? or I can extract it on my Ubuntu or Winxp gui?

I have extracted it with Winxp, but after copying it to A70-REC in Ubuntu, reboot Dev. Edition, it stays at Archos splash scrren and go no where.

Update: only extracted under Unix root works. Thanks. Very happy with the rooted Archie 70. Install Hot reboot too.

works well on my A70 250GB. Installed ADW launcher + SetCPU, it works like a charm. No laggy issue, BT and Wireless connection runs well too.

Thank you, it works.

But rooting with Archangel is easier.

I decided to avoid "Archangel" for two reasons

1. I have no idea where it came from and who made it

2. The "Archangel Network" was what the Master used to enslave the people of Earth in Series 3 of Doctor Who.

I'm just sayin...

Guys im on Firmware 2.1.3 and i followed this guide step by step, after finishing up with the flashing of the kernel my system has gone in to a bootloop. I can boot into into recovery menu but other than that, i can't boot into the OS. Any ideas where i went wrong ?

I need to have two files "permanently" changed so I can tether to my 'berry. If I saved them on the internal 8gb flash, could I put a routine in init.rc to copy them to the proper location in /system/bin and /system/etc/ppp/peers upon boot?

Also, if I save the Urik SD card and kernel files, could i revert back if need be?

Question Overclock able version?
Do you have an over clockable version of the 2.103 Kernel?
I have tried one from the threads but the archos just loops the main boot screen.

thanks.

If you use UrukDroid (or what else means Urik?) you already have root.
