Google Market installer for your Archos – ArcTools news 2010/12/24

42

ArcTools has been updated to 0.32 you can download it here or directly from Appslib on your tablet.

This new release brings some minor user interface enhancements and a fully functional Market 2.2.7, thanks to kenyu73 and Sergej63.

For the new Market you need to choose “Default Apps & Market v2.2.7” download in ArcTools application.

ArcTools Tutorial available here

After installing ArcTools, when you have the Market running, if you are missing some applications in the Market (for example Google Maps, Youtube, …) there is a fix that should correct the problem and give you full access to Market applications.

Enjoy and Merry Christmas everyone !

Note: If your tablet still runs on Eclair (firmware 1.0.84 /Android 2.1-update 1) and you need Arctools to support it, please post a comment on this article, we may include support for Eclair if there is enough demand.

  1. okay i couldn’t get the market to run, it just keeps on opening and closing quickly same as gmail to but maps worked fine ? . so i went back to gapps4archos2(froyo) knowing that YouTube didnt work at all. but i used the arctool 0.46 to remove it(YouTube apk) and then download the working one off of market place to make it work. i have market , gmail, calendar etc all working and trust me i have tried all the other ways with no luck at all. so with the latest firmware by archos 2.1.8 and gapps4archos2(froyo) combine with arctool 0.46 i have a complete working system to my liking

  2. Update:

    I reinitialized the tablet. Installed Arctool 0.32, downloaded market 2.2.7, installed and rebooted. Market initially didn’t say version 2.2.7 from Application. But I think it automatically updated, it is now 2.2.7. All is well, everything looks good, thanks!!

    • Goody 😉 The device reset is really a must to avoid problems, the tutorial has been updated.
      Regarding the market version, it isn’t at 2.2.7 after installation, but the quick update to 2.2.7 process is normal.
      The release notes or tutorial will be documented to reflect that.

  3. So as suggested i did reset well sort of, i elected Option 2 as I’m not ready to reset my whole tablet. I cleared data, upgraded to 0.32, removed old market, rebooted, installed new market, rebooted. Still failed. without removing market, I downloaded and installed old market, reboot and it works fine. I might try Option 1 later but got to back my data up. thanks and Merry Christmas!

  4. I installed the 0.31 version downloaded market n it works great. I was able to launch 0.31 without downloading 0.32 and download the new market (2.2.7). After installation, the market wont’ start. So clicking on the market icon after reboot, it would launch, show white screen and goes back to android screen, so in essence it crashed. I’ve got the latst firmware from Archos as well. Am I the only one? any hints? Thanks for this great site!

    • Sev,
      If possible, you should reinitialize your tablet (check our tutorial) before installing and running ArcTools.
      Not doing it leaves previous Market installation and configuration data that create issues most of the time.
      Please keep us posted about your results 😉
      Cheers,
      Merry Xmas,
