Found this firmware on one of the forums. Looks like it has lots of optimizations, but the website is in Spanish.  Apparently it lets you swap the external micro-sd in for the internal memory so that you can install all games and apps to your physical card.

 

http://www.archosgamepad.es/#!update-microsd-mod/cl48

 

Looks like these are the features:

Removing unnecessary applications but in Google Play (Plus One, Maps, Streets, etc ...)
Elimination of the Chinese character keyboard.
Editing the start-up logo.
Upgrade all Google applications and Archos (browser, videos, music, controls mapping, etc ...)
Added Black Market (Market alternative).
Improved performance of RAM, CPU and GPU. (NOVA 3 without any LAG) Tested with Google purchased game Play
Improved performance of application launcher.
Improved performance of the wifi (better speed and stability).
Improved memory change (when using the USB cable to pass data by removing the micro-sd just have to re-connect the cable to access the memory of the tablet)

My USA Gamepad will be here in a couple days, and I'm looking to fixing some of the native problems.

Took a chance and updated my Gamepad with this firmware.  It's fantastic.  My Gamepad internal memory was full and I couldn't put anything onto the physical 32 gb microSD card that I had installed.  After installing this firmware, I did a factory reset, and re-loaded all my games.  Happy to report that games now install directly to the SD card.  I have like 6GB left on the Gamepad memory, and tons on the SD card.  I've been able to download and install/play Gameloft's Dark Knight, Wild Blood, Nova 3, and Modern Combat 4 with TONS of room to spare on my 32GB microSD card.

Sorry, I've never used the firmware that you are talking about.  This is my first custom firmware.  Not really any reason for my to try another now.

I have tried both and performance is simillar, this mods has the advantage of the auto swap of the internal memory and the external sd as sd card, but Sigmax-JFG has root so you can play full screen, round screen borders and apply the fix for the gamepad lad when you use a externalsd.

 

The perfect firmware could be this one, but with root acces. Anyone could root this one o post a link to a guide so I can do it and share it here?

Well, first you should ask the permission of the guy who made it to modify/use it as your base.
