We are working on a rooted firmware for the ARCHOS GamePad 2. 

It's not finished yet, we'll post updates when we are satisfied with the result and it is ready to be published.

Supporting new devices such as the GamePad 2 costs us development time and money, we need your support to continue working on custom firmwares and helping the community, thank you !

Hi,

 

it would be great if you could also look into the issue of the external_sd card not being writeable by apps, possibly caused by a missing <group gid="media_rw" /> in the WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission of platform.xml. Otherwise, with stock firmware apps can only read from SD.

 

Thanks!

Yup, that's the usual fix I apply on all our custom firmwares.

I will check if it works fine on the GamePad 2 as well.

Cheers.

Hello,

I don't know, I stopped working on the root project mainly due to lack of support from the community and the little free time available.

If things do not really move forward in the coming weeks, I will refund the members who donated (currently just two people) and will resell my GamePad as I have no use of it.

 

Cheers.

If you came here for the Root and not the Firmware part of the Topic, like me, here is a thing for you:

 

http://www.jbmm.fr/2013/11/archos-gamepad-2-le-root-facile_2200

 

i¬īm not the writer of this guide.

if you need to google translate it be sure you have a version in orginal open for the correct spelling of the therminal commands. 

 

you¬īll need the android-SDK, if you have problems to understand how to do it, let me know and i¬īll try to make a guide in english.

 

and as allways: i am NOT responsible if you brick your device.

i¬īve done it whit mine and it works good!!!¬†

Hi everyone,

 

About the firmware, I've donated to support your works. By the way, the jxd 7800b and Archos Gamepad 2 are very similar (bluetooth for archos, rear camera for jxd), do you think it's possible for you to use the work already done on this forum ?

http://boards.dingoonity.org/jxd-devices/s7800b-supercharged-v2-0-oc-reparted-ext2int-cwm-mrktfix/

 

And there is also a bug with all video players, it could be solved by this patch, apparently.
