While we had to wait for them for some time, Archos has finally put the kernel sources for most Arnova models. Unfortunately, the ones for the 7c G3, the 8b G3 and for nearly all older models(an exception is 10G2) are not available at this moment.

Here are the download links(redirect to Arnova website):

In case you want to "punish" Archos for putting them online a little bit late, you can request a CD-R with the sources from them. Just ask them to send it somewhere to the North Pole or Antartica, so they will have to spend a fortune on getting the CD-R and shipping it there. :) How much this joke costs? Well, 15EUR + a written request sent directly to Arnova HQ in Igny, France. You won't take this seriously, right? ;)

Thanks to HaroldG for pushing to get the kernel sources available, thanks to Archos/Arnova for finally listening to the developers communities and complying to the LGPL.

Hi!
Do we know why the choose to not share source code from the older models, such as the 7C G2?
I'd like to "fully" use USB host feature... I think, I need patch the kernel to do so. (To use a FTDI device)
