set itself this firmware first all seemed to work fine! but after I put the SD card and started watching movies, I noticed that the video slows down! decided to change back to its former firmware, but it did not work! using Rockchip Flashing tool did not work too well as on my windows 7 x86 is not possible to install the driver for this device (the driver is not designed to run on this platform) writes refusal. I pray help me the way I was told that there are some so-called alternative driver to work on windows 7! If you know anything please help!

Hi skarfer

Try :
- right clic on short cut "Rockchip Flashing tool"
- clic on property
- tab compatibility
- Compatibility mode
run this program => Windows XP

My computer is in French, so I am not sure you will read exactly the same messages, but you will understand 😉

I don't try on this program but this solution runs well when the drivers were built to XP
Good luck !

As the blog article says, you can't update the firmware while running CM7. You'll need to use Rockchip Flash tool:

Birdiebnl and hvdwolf do produce some very solid firmwares for the Archos 7HTv2.

Work on firmwares for Archos 7HTv2 and Arnova G1 firmwares are a bit on hold these days, with focus on newer models running on Rockchip RK2918 CPU (Arnova G2 and Arnova G3). Hopefully some improvements can still be made on older firmwares, as time will permit.
Cheers.

Hi. I’m having problems installing the ArcTools. After installing this update firmware (Cyanogenmod-7.2.0-RC0-RK2818-KANG), I installed ArcTool , but i cannot download Google Apps because i get this message: “Error 25: file copy failed – Archive file cannot be accessed. please check that your device is not mounted on USB”. My device is not mounted (USB is disabled by this firmware, and the cable is disconnected...)

Is there any workaround? If not – is there any other way i can download and install the Gmail application on the tablet? that is the main thing i want…
thanks!

You can install Gmail thru Google Play / Android Market. This CM7 firmware is quite experimental is I suggest that you better try a stable firmware like here:
http://www.arctablet.com/blog/featured/archos-7-htv2-android-2-2-froyo-market-root-hvdwolf/
If you have flashed the CM7 firmware, you'll probably need to flash the recommended firmware above with Rockchip Flashing tool as CM7 did break the normal way of flashing (by just copying the update.img file on the tablet).
Cheers.

Thanks for the quick response! I'll try it.

FYI - the fact that USB is disabled and new image loading will be harder was a bit hidden in the text (after installing several firmwares in a row, i missed that detail...). the Froyo 2-2 didn't handle hebrew well, hence i came to this version, which handles hebrew great, and only then realized reversing to other firmewars will be harder...

Sorry to bug you further, but i'm stuck...

I have tried several times now to install gmail through reaching Google Play on the browser (since i don't have the Google Apps installed). it tells me "This app will be downloaded to your device shortly", but nothing happens on my Archos... Any other advice how to achieve installing Gmail on this CM7 firmware?

Thanks!
