  • No need to apply the root update if you're rooted.
  • I can't get any boot menus to work - I installed the xposed framework and then gravity box, which has some nice touches, but the boot menu won't work. If you're thinking of using xposed, make sure you go carefully and backup beforehand.
  • To remove the Chinese apps, use titanium backup, grant super-user permission when it starts, go to "backup/restore" and choose the app you want to remove (the Chinese ones are obvious), then choose un-install. It worked for me. You might want to do a backup from recovery before doing this, in case you remove something critical.

Thank you all, i have successfully managed to apply the 4.2.2 image - the device is amazingly smooth and worth the money now! I did have some questions regarding the removal of Chinese apps, i cant uninstall them anywhere, just disable which hides them from view.

Also holding down the power button on brings up a quick boot option, nothing for power off, restart, airplane mode...Is this the same for all users?

I didn't apply the root tool i just went and followed the guide on page 1. I then ran the root patch update file which seemed to have worked.

Has anyone applied step 18 -

"Optional -- install the root update from the post in this thread: http://www.arctablet.com/blog/featured/root-onda-v812-onda-v972-and-allwinner-a31-based-tablets/"

and if so any benefits noticed?

Again thanks to all members for the great help, it's just a shame Archos don't push this update to all 97 Platinum users so they to can experience the benefits and give them a brand new tablet.

Thanks

Maybe i spoke to soon...the tablet is now randomly switching off and will only turn on if the charger is connected. Once its on it may run fine for another 5-15mins before just turning off. I've done a factory reset and same problems. Will running all the install steps with phoenixsuite solve the problem?

Battery is at 80% and when plugged in the large green battery icon that is displayed when the tablet is off is charging from roughly 80% onwards.

Hi, I have now installed CM10.2 and am very happy with it because I can so use bluetooth.
I have now a please.
How can I set back to "Stock Rom" if I have to send the tablet back under warranty? can someone with the "Stock rom" upload it here?

From the Archos website - choose your device here:

http://www.archos.com/gb/support/support_tech/updates_fwm.html

I haven't tried it so can't say if it works or bricks!

 hello, unfortunately it is not possible to "zip" file to flash. because I do not have the original image. I need one. "img" file. I can then flash with "phoenix suite". I would be very grateful if someone could upload an img file for the archos 97 platinum.

Hi there,

i'm new to this forum. I got an Archos 97 Platinum HD and i am looking for a better rom than the stock one.

So i want to try out that custom Onda 4.2.2 rom but those links given in this thread do not work... so please can you upload it again? Or where can i find it?

And a general question: what is probably the best, fastest, most stable rom for the Archos 97 Platinum HD ?

Best regards

I've tried them all and have gone back to the Onda ROM as in my post 27 - for me it was easily the best

So all is well, i re ran the steps on the first page and flashed the tablet again which got everything working back to normal, no more restarts.

I've been using it for a few weeks now no problems and super fast and smooth. The only question is has anyone done the optional update below:

Step 18 -

"Optional -- install the root update from the post in this thread: http://www.arctablet.com/blog/featured/root-onda-v812-onda-v972-and-allwinner-a31-based-tablets/"

and if so any benefits noticed?

Anyone news on any future updates?? 4.4??

Sorry, still haven't applied that as I didn't need it, but the rom is working well and have been able to move many apps to SD when I've had space issues.

However I've now acquired a Nexus 10, so no more updates from me as I'll probably be moving my Archos 97 Platinum to a new home.

i agree, its a good firmware, though the benchmark results seem to be fake. i tested with antutu X and i got only 12500 points instead of more than 20000 with the standard antutu version...

who is the "maker" of this rom anyway?
