This thread is for installation, help,
known bugs
and infos/faqs
for the shortly released build of cyanogen for the gen 8 archos
it is only "recommended" to use it with the a101 or the 70

link: http://www.openaos.org

installation:
install sde
install open aos recovery
Download the last Cyanogen img file from here: http://download.openaos.org/bubu/gen8/android/Rename the file to openaos-gingerbread then copy it to the root of your Archos
edit the menue.lst (with notepad++) to:
Archos|ARCHOS|ARCHOS|/init|0
Angstrom||/rootfs.img|/sbin/init|1
Ginger-bread||/openaos-gingerbread.img|/init|0
(add an empty line at the end)
unix breaks must be enabled in notepad++ if you are on windows.

Reboot your Archos and hold down VOL - (Down) Button, select "Developer Edition" and select in the Boot Menu "Ginger-bread".

if nothing is helping try(wont boot/ wont show ginger-bread):

I'm very excited to finally have an actual file in hand for CM7. Just FYI though, before you flash too soon:

Not working:

Audio
Bluetooth
Accelerometer
accelerated Video decoding
Suspend
TS calibration on A28/A32/A43

Known problems:

general instability / random crashes
Touchscreen has problems on the A101
hard to use on resistive TS models due to missing calibration

There's still some work to be done before it's a daily use ROM, but hopefully we can help out and fix some of these issues.

How do I edit the list?

Code:
Cyanogen||/cyanogen.img|/sbin/init|1

Update
This is really great, but you can notice this is an alfa version
