hello guys,

i bought an Archos 7 Home Tablet V1 and played around with some firmwares.
Today i wanted to go back to the original firmware. After flashing it back, the sd card is damaged and i cant format it anymore. Not on the device and not on a computer. I also have now 2 partitions on my internal flash. one i can format, and the other it says "please insert media" when i try to access it. i am not shure, but i think that it had first only 1 partiton. after flashing back to the original fw it says in settings that
firmware version is 1.0.15,
kernel version is 2.6.25 root@cong-desktop #1639,
build number RK-1.2.9.eng.root.20100728.160408

i cant remember the original versions, but i think they were different to that.

latest image i've tested was Himself v0.28.

can anybody please help me, i dont know how to go back to only 1 partition and to the original versions of kernel and build. i tried my best with RKAndroid, but i cant really go back to the original fw.

thanks

Rockchip flashing tool should get you fixed even in the most desperate situations.

Have you tried the older program (RKAndroid_ENG.zip), required for Archos 7 HTv1 ?

Where does it fail exactly ?

Thanks for the quick answer.

In my topic, i wrote that i tried my best with RKAndroid. It never fails flashing! The user interface looks now like the original cupcake, but in settings it says that i am on a rooted kernel and build version. I also have the problem with the 2 partitions, i think it was only 1 partition at the beginning.

Sorry if I did not get it [Image Can Not Be Found]

Flashing thru Rockchip tool should get you back with the default partitions layout from update image you are flashing.

If you really flashed the stock firmware from Archos (1.0.15 build 0728) which seems to be the case according to your first message, then I am not getting it.

Hopefully other Archos 7HTv1 users that had some experience with Himself 0.28 firmware could stop by and comment here.

Yes, i flashed it with the firmware from Archos (1.0.15 build 0728).

Can you please tell me what the kernel and build strings are from that?

I am a Mac user, so i flashed the firmware in a Windows XP VM in Parallels. Could this be a fault? Is there a flashing tool for Mac users?

Is it right to press "restore" in RKAndroid? Or may i have to press "update"?

I don't have an Archos 7HTv1 anymore so I can't confirm about kernel and build strings.

If the USB support works properly, flashing inside a VM does normally work; there has been positive reports for users, I don't remember which platform or VM.  

Usually sending the firmware to the tablet is done with the Update button in Rockchip Flashing tool (at least on later versions), I have no idea what the Restore button does…

Many thanks for your advices so far.

I will test it again with "update" when i am at home.

If it fails, maybe i will test flashing on my PC at work tomorrow.
