Hi !

I am pleased to present the latest Archos ICS Firmware 4.0.5 (4.0.3) , now with Su, Superuser & Busybox installed !


In this rom original files have not been modified. Were added only Su & Superuser for Root access and Busybox for other stuff !

These are the files you need to install root version :

- archos.ext4.update in archive ICS_405.zip => https://hotfile.com/dl/150045208/fe18703/ICS_405.zip.html

- zImage and initramfs.cpio.lzo in archive drive_405.zip => http://www.4shared.com/zip/FSL2xCXY/file.htmlhttp://www.crocko.com/946E5915D1214957BD66756BAEE56623/drive_405.zip


Installation :

- copy archos.ext4.update into Internal Storage ( /data/media ; /mnt/storage )
- reboot into SDE menu and under Developer Edition Mernu , Flash Kernel and Initramfs : copy zImage and initramfs.cpio.lzo on the new driver that appears on desktop/laptop
- ok ! and wait for reboot your devices : after reboot you can see Android update system for a while .....be patient !

This Root version works on all tablets gen9, is stable and can be used as a daily ROM !


( For not to expect too much between the two download ....now you have the option to download drive_405.zip )


If you have problems installing this root version , then you can thank him ( @Shano56 ) and please visit => http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1542058

Tell me I'm wrong.

In the midst of trying to install this firmware, I did something stupid, and may have bricked my tablet.

I did a "full reinitialization" (not through SDE) within the stock firmware after installing the custom ROM, rebooted without letting it finished, and thinking nothing was wrong, I removed the Android kernel. Now it won't go past the Archos logo, and I can't seem to get into recovery mode.

Is there any way to fix it, or am I boned?

Hi!

You can try so : press power for 10 sec. until the green led light goes out ....now : connect your device with USB cable into desktop/laptop and while you press volume down , press also power and wait for expected to enter into recovery (SDE) ....here you can do Format System->Reformat Device -> I understand -> ok! and copy original ICS 4.0.5 .aos file in the new driver that will appear! Good luck!

THANK YOU. Oh man, you are a lifesaver. Hopefully this can be of use to someone else if they decide to pull a genius move like I did.
Hi!

Be careful to installation !....you can really break your device ! Not disconnect the USB device and not randomly press keys while you try to flash something ....Good luck !:rolleyes:
