I have also had the problem. I also already had JB 4.1.1 on the 101 xs. You must go back to ICS. Then you can upgrade your Tablet with this rooted version.

hi @surdu_petru, i've installed your Android 4.1.2 Firmware 4.1.2 with Root access ! (SDE was enabled)
The new firmware included the zImage, and initramfs.cpio.lzo was succesfull installed.
Sometimes Superuser hangs, and the error Superuser has ended was on the display.
I installed quickboot from Aptoide, and made a reboot, i confirmed superuser the process...superuser was closed..and now the Archos 101 XS never boot, it hangs on the bootlogo.
i can boot into sde, tried check the disk, it works, but on reboot ther is only the bootlogo.
Can you help me, thanks for all.

today i cleared all data, installed the firmware, removed the kernel, copied the zImage and initramfs.cpio.lzo, there was an error, initramfs not found ?
