    Rooting Help

    Not to play it down, but you can actually root different ways... and while Archangel does give you root, I found it was partial. Running Archangel I was unable to edit, save, or otherwise change any file in the /system folder. I've been playing with the wpa_supplicant.conf file trying to get the...

    Rooting Help

    In windows you have admin. Admins can do whatever they want on the system. In Linux you have "root" or SU (superuser). Once you have root you can do whatever you want on the system. In regards to Android systems, when you root your device, you are essentially gaining the right to change...

    Best way to Factory Reset? (Archos 101)

    Ironically enough he firmware is available on most posts having to do with rooting your Archos :D Though you'd need to install SDK which voids your warranty. Archos claims that it watermarks your system and they can tell that you installed it... though no programmer has ever seen this water mark.

    Best way to Factory Reset? (Archos 101)

    Though I gotta be honest.. seems a rather harsh method to fix a google market issue. Try this: go to Settings > Accounts and Syncs Settings > Turn Sync off. Then go to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > All > Clear Cache and Data for contacts storage, etc.. and attempt to sync...

    Yea, the video's I believe were made by Kellex. Great teacher. I felt the same as you.. watching the videos made me feel real comfortable with rooting my phone. Like I said, I watched them... then went through it with him, step by step pausing at each step. It's a bit outdated... but the steps...

    What I find that a lot of people are afraid of is bricking your phone... and you have a valid reason to be afraid. However, with the invention of unrooting, we have access to the original SBF file... that is, the stock image. If you need to unroot for any reason, or do something that REALLY...

    Flash question

    LOL We keep running into each other.. the thing to remember is that Flash 10.1 on the android is LITE and therefore not technically a full version of Flash. Having said this, you can download flash, run Miren or Dolphin browser and 'pretend' to be something like a desktop pc... this WILL get you...

    No problem, I've rooted more OG Droids than I care to count, the Droid X, Evo, Droid 2, and Droid 2 Global. (Mostly all the same method but man HTC's are WAY more involved). What's the phone you're running with? If an OG Droid we can have it done within a matter of minutes.

    Tether Adhoc Wireless.... Archos 101

    Tweeter I followed this guy - Without issue. Took me three of four tries... give it a shot. If it doesn't work clear pairing and profile and start it again.. rinse and repeat till it works. Sometimes a reboot will be needed.
