Hi Surdu

Installed this rooted version, ran O.K. .I've reverted to Clean-Slim-Fast as I prefer the slimmed down version.

Best regards

Hi, plse just confirm i have do the good step (all work fine for me, i just want confirm all)

I have downgrade to 4.0.6, after temp root and install sde, i've install again the 4.0.6. After i installed the 4.0.7 (delete the kernel) with root and 4.0.24 with root too.

And now the 4.0.25

Is that the correct step?!

Decided today to root and install SDE my new Archos g9 8gb and install this rooted rom, unfortunately as I had applied the standard 4.0.25 firmware there was an error when trying to install the SDE.

I tried returning to stock 4.0.7 but that now reports it is too old for my rom.

Looks like Ill be staying on the standard rom for some time yet lol

TrOjAn

****UPDATE****

Reading back I saw muti642 had the same issue, after trying the OLD outdated method I have now been able to install SDE and the latest rom.. thanks all :)

HI

what's the best GOVERNOR for save battery duration??

Hi!

You do the right steps for install the last firmware 4.0.25 !
If you have problem with any app, please uninstall apk and try to reinstal from PlayStore!
Also you need to check what governor is the best on savebattery! , for sure is not hotplug!
Good luck!

So, now you have managed to install SDE, or not ?
( For Official Firmware you are not allowed to downgrade firmware ! On root version you can install any firmware you want ! )

thought about reinstalling via playstore..

about battery save.. i will try thx again! ;)

I had similar problems with some applications google owner, and I resolved by reinstalling ! :good:
( also for full compatibility please , first use English to see if is there some issue ! )

The best Governor for our tablet seems to be hotplug, is the only one who knows how to manage both processor cores !
...also you can take a look here ( Android CPU governors explained ! )

Hi!

Hi!

What was the problem?

The problem was error 221 or 223 depending on where I was and what I was doing.. basically::

On a NON rooted Archos 8gb 101 I updated to the official 4.0.25 (which worked) and then I wanted to install SDE / Root.

I was unable to do either using the newest ( link here ) method but the OLD method ( link here ) worked, that then allowed me to install SDE and then a custom rom.

On a side note: Can anything be done to improve the audio volume? When I watch a movie I have to use earphones as the speaker volume is too low?

the problem was only after doing the update from 4.0.24 to 4.0.25 installing the SDE was no longer possible error code 221.
to solve it took Roote and install the sde of the old method (with adb), I have the install your room.

Ok !

I understand :good:
...but, I do not understand, why you need to reinstall SDE - as long as SDE does not uninstall single, after you perform a new update ....:confused:

    Wanted to be the first to say thanks. Your work is awesome.

    Good luck ! :good:

    Hello. How can I install a working busybox + applets? I tried 2 busybox installers from google play but each of them broke archos media center (smb shares were no longer accessible). "mount --bind" doesn't work on the stock busybox and neither does solid explorer (keeps asking to install busybox).

    Hi!

    I'll upload soon a version slim & fast with busybox ! ( the stock busybox will be removed !)

    Followed that guide to the letter 9, yes 9 times and all resulted in black screen!

    TrOjAn

    Ok !

    so, please take a look here, maybe it help you !


    Thanks for this, it worked perfectly on my G9 80 updating from your previous rooted 4.0.7 rom. Unlike others I haven't seen any drop in RAM capacity from 4.0.7 so am a happy bunny. Your work is appreciated.

    Hi!

    Thanks ! :good:

    Is OC version coming?

    Hi !

    sure, yes !
    the priority :
    Clean_Slim&Fast V02 ( almost ready for launch ! )
    [email protected]_V04 !
    OC Edition ! ( first release will be for OMAP 4430 stock 1GHz & 1.2GHz )
    ...all this based on the last firmware 4.0.25 !

    Screenshot Clean_Slim&Fast V02 !

    unbelievable just that.. so bad

    Hi !

    I have two news to communicate : good one for me, one unfortunately bad for you :crying: !
    - unfortunately my tablet could not be repaired ! ( was touch screen problems ) - and they returned me the value ! ( because they were nice, I decided to try their new device Archos 101 XS ! - paying only a difference of 30 euro ! )
    - now , because I do not have G9 tablet - I still support for you just root version for any future Firmware for Archos Gen9 ! ...but no more custom rom or kernel tweaks ! ( unfortunately ....!!!)


    I honestly do not know if it's worth the money for Archos Gen10 101XS ~ 379E , but now - have a dual core TI OMAP 4470 with 1.5GHz , ( I hope I can rise to 1.9GHz in the future :D ) - and comes with a pretty cool magnetic keyboard - all of are very slim indeed, ( compared with Asus TF300T tablet including dock - now Archos 101xs including dock is almost half thick :good: )

    In conclusion wait to see you again especially in Archos Gen10 Development - for the new future Custom Rom ! :good:

    regards,
    Surdu Petru !

    Uninstalled SDE, went through that unofficial, rebooted to recovery NO SDE, Went through the stages to install gen9_enable_sde. NO SDE.

    You need to enable USB debugging and also driver for archos installed in your machine !
