I've successfully installed Visture V5HD on Archos 97 Titanium HD! Tablet runs a lot smoother + there is 2GB of free internal storage for installing apps.

How to install Visture on Archos 97 Ttianium HD guide

First, you should root your tablet. Archos 97 HD root guide.

1. backup Archos boot.img with rkflashtool
sudo ./rkflashtool r 0x00008000 0x00008000 > boot.bak

2. Download Rockchip Batch Tool v1.5 and Visture V5HD ROM visture_v5hd_97r_20130412-411-rooted3.zip

4. Unzip V5HD ROM .img and simply restore it with Batch Tool.



5. Flash your Archos boot.img backup back to the tablet
sudo ./rkflashtool w 0x00008000 0x00008000 < boot.bak

6. Enjoy!

no sd card
Great work!

It worked out all ok as you described. A problem I have is in the browser When downloading something it says no sd-card found, altough there are internal and external sd-card present. Maybe somebody can help with a solution.

Yes, something is wrong with internal SD..
I've swaped internal with external SD with this https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...codlab.int2ext and now it's even better.

Memory leak fix
Hi,

maybe we can also apply the memory leak fix and then only the system.img so it is easier to install.

Edit vold.fstab to fix SDCard problem using ES Data Explorer.

Found at (root) /etc/

Edit dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard auto...

to

dev_mount sdcard /storage/sdcard0 ....

This has fixed sd problem at my device.

So now I checked the partitions are completly new...

Now I read the system partition with rkflashtool and can mount it into a directory and edit things like the above mentioned memory leak fix.

Code:
./rkflashtool r 0x0051a000 0x00100000 > customrom.img
