Android build: archos/RK3070GP/A70GP:4.1.1/JRO03H/20121220.155836:user/release-keys

Linux Kernel build: Linux version 3.0.8+ (lfzhou@midcs-desktop) (gcc version 4.4.3 (GCC) ) #7 SMP PREEMPT Thu Dec 20 09:21:59 CST 2012

 

Rooted firmware Download: kasty-gamepad-41-051.zip

Please do not reupload or mirror this file.

 

Flash only with Rockchip Flasher tool, use Restore button.

Quick firmware flashing update procedure, thanks to nubis.

I have successfully flashed it, coming from stock firmware 1.0, using Win7/64bit.

Here’s how I did it:

connected tablet to usb, switched off the tablet, then pressed vol+,vol-, poweron at the same time.

The tablet was still showing me a black screen (no archos logo), but Win7 complained suddenly about a missing driver. I went into the device manager, used the rockchip driver (amd64/win7) and proceeded to start the flashing tool. If your device proceeds automatically to boot Android, then you have do something wrong.

Then (still with a black screen on the tablet) I selected the rooted firmware, clicked on “restore” and waited a few minutes. The flash completed successfully. It will set everything back to default, this means all apps/settings are gone. Then it rebooted automatically.

Then I checked for root access – first SuperSU wanted an update, then Check Root didn’t want to show me a root success, but then I remembered to turn on usb debugging on the tablet. Afterwards, checkroot confirmed that the tablet is rooted! :)

 

This firmware has been confirmed to work by several forum users.

You should be able to flash this test firmware safely and flash back the stock firmware from Archos if things go wrong. Feedback is welcome.

Cheers.

The new firmware seems to come pre-rooted and is easy to modify.

I’m not sure but I think that if you reboot the tablet by pressing and holding the power button and the volume + button and when it leaves the word archos leave only the power button.
