Nothing worse than 2.1 and no Google Market. Makes the tablets useless (IMO). No installing to external SD. No YouTube, no... pretty much anything. So here's the link on how to install your Archos unit running Android 2.1 -> Android 2.2, as well as install Google Market for Android 2.2. Don't bother with the over-the-air update to 2.2 when you get the A icon showing at the top. It will download PART of the installation file, finish before getting to 100%, then tell you that the update file is not valid. Download Android 2.2 here: firmware_archos_android_gen8.aos Download with PC, plug in USB to Archos and copy it over to root dir. Use "FILES" icon on Archos to select it and install. Google Apps Market installation instructions: Downloads - archos-apps-installer - Project Hosting on Google Code (make sure you have a GMail account before beginning installation of Google Market) THERE *IS* something else that needs to be done for market to work. See here: gAppsInstaller - Froyo - xda-developers Flash 10.1: DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL FLASH 10: Press the Android Market Icon, press the search button and type Flash Player 10.1. Flash will appear in the results window. Press the icon and then the Install button at the bottom of the page. (Android 2.2 required - Google Market is different on 2.2 than on 2.1 and Flash results will not even show up on Market for 2.1) For more info see this thread: Forum.ArchosFans.com - View topic - Step by Step Plan to Upgrade brand new Archos Devices to 2.2 Took me awhile to find all the right info that I've listed above. But I got my girlfriend's Archos 70 2.1 with AppsLib (Archos market) -> Archos 70 with Android 2.2 and Google Market (YouTube, Angry Birds, etc, etc, etc...) So I know the procedure works. Enjoy.
