have you tried to put the tablet in recovery mode (using + and - volume more power down) and redo the firmware flash?

sigma.nl said

hello 

i need help because my game pad is not switching on, after the update, when i switch it on all i can see is the "Archos logo entertainment your way" and it stays like that forever. what do i do. can someone pls help me. i dnt know if my device is bricked or not, is there other ways to factory reset the whole thing. i can only go into download mode and that's it. i cant do anything else Frown

 

Have You detached the USB cable? The gamepad sometimes take ages to boot when I have the USB cable connected to my computer.

First time boot takes a while.

 

i have done that but still it takes forever, after the update i turned it on and it was working fine, then when i tried to hold the volume +,- and power button to connect and update my driver on my computer that's when the problem started, my computer "windows 7 64bit" couldn't recognize it then i tried to restart the game pad it wouldn't turn on, all i can see is the booting logo and that's it nothing more, its like it goes into a boot-loop,  i have left it like that for over an hour and still nothing Frown

i have tried, i dot think it goes into recovery mode because when i try to do it all i can see is the tablet starting up logo and that's it, but it only goes into download mode when i hold down the volume down and power, but i don't know wat to do from there. i tried using the "rock chip batch tool v1.5" but it doesn't recognize my gamepad

I suspect that certain lot of tablets are a little different than the ones that have been succesfully flashed.

I've tried it and it works! This method is however not for the fainthearted I can tell you :P

Now only have to unbrick it again because I tried to install the ChainFire 3D driver, It's stuck on the Archos logo and only can access the dead android with the red exclamation mark.

The main thing is, the rooted firmware works and the crazy but functional method of the german guy also works!

Thank you!

I did both sides while it was plugged in to the USB port, however sometimes it only showed up when I replugged the cable to another USB port. Be patient AND CAREFULL!! it worked for me.
