    Thank you for your good work for the gen9.

    I had no FC with the first rooted 4.06, but the wifi disconnects sometimes in standby. Would you prefer to update even if I had no FC till now?

    I can not see a downloadlink ...

    Hi !

    For me in the stock firmware 4.0.6 version I had a lot of random restarting !
    - with this update , all seems to be OK !

    If you do not have FC, and random reboot , you not need to update .....only if you use the VPN service. ;)

    Flashed it and it works, but now I encountered this problem.
    If you do a full wipe from the Settings menu, the device freezes while booting. It's not a bootloop, just completely freezes on the Archos bootlogo.
    Same thing happens when I then try to reboot from the Recovery menu, or even Format System and Reset Android and Storage. Boot freeze....
    Any idea on this?

    I have a 80G9

    Hi!

    You can try "Format System" -> "Reformat Device" -> OK ! , install stock 4.0.6, than -> copy archos.ext4.update in /mnt/storage/ go to recovery -> Recovery System -> Developer Edition Menu -> Remove Android Kernel -> Developer Edition Menu -> Flash Kernel & Initramfs , copy here zImage and initramfs , Ok! - good luck !

    13 hour stresstest! wow that cannot be good for your CPU. was your tablet hot afterwards?

    mmh, maybe stresstest is the wrong word in the conservative meaning. what i mean is, heavy usage of my favorite applications like adobe reader, dolphin hd, kindle, moon+ reader, stock browser, greader pro, kaiten mail, vs tv, softmaker office mobile (crashes 2 times, because beta i guess), calendar, meridian pro, pinball, picsay pro, raging thunder, titanium backup, skype, upnplay, google play store and some german news apps with a lot of video contents like zdf mediathek, tagesschau, heute and so on. all applications crashes after a while before update. seems, after update my main apps running stable now. btw. it's not only a gamepad (only for fun and relaxing) you see. my hotspot is information, working, watching tv/video and communication. i think, a real 'stresstest' (running cpu instructions in a loop thousands of times) is not close enough to my daily usage. i'm not a fan of overclocking (reduce life of hardware) only to get more speed.

    beside this, i realized that skype has problems with audio now. i cannot receive any voice with audio and video calls. my counterpart can hear me, but my speaker keep silent. what a pity. until is fixed, i use reelportal to talk with my kids.

    for my purpose it's much much better now. i have got many fc's/freezes/reboots while scrolling in contents when i used governor hotplug.

    @hitman72:
    opera crashes since honeycomb on my tablet and on my phones (pls see opera forum for all the pain :(). it's not a really good reference. i use dolphin instead. not all fc's are caused by archos i mean. many apps in play store have a low quality and not really ported to ics hd. i don't except bugfree software all over.
