I have managed to root my 80 titanium by following these easy steps after trying to load drivers 60-70 times no success i managed to get into bootloader mode then my Windows 7 64bit saw the tablet i pointed and installed drivers Rockchip_Batch_Tool_v1.5  had to do it twice windows complained then the Rockchip batch tool saw tablet and green square lit up i then selected the kasty image file and it loaded and rebooted.

Thank you to all here for your help this from     http://www.hotukdeals.com/misc/archos-80-titanium-owners-thread-guide-page-1-1516690

 

** How to root the tablet ** - thanks to Arctablet News
Here's a link for the forum on this topic. Most people specially those new to Android do not need this feature as it involves a bit of reading and danger of damaging the tablet. Try at your own risk. If you don't know what root is, you probably don't need it.

1. Download and unzip this file and this file.
2. Turn off the tablet. While pressing both the volume down and power button, connect the tablet to the PC via USB cable.
3. The PC will recognise the device. Use the drivers provided in the Rockchip_Batch_Tool_v1.5.zip when asked.
4. Run RKBatchTool application as administrator. If a green square lights up in the program it means its recognise the tablet.
5. Click the button next to FW Path and point to the update.img file from kasty-titanium80-41-test1.zip.
6. Click Upgrade. This process will take several minutes and the tablet will reboot.

Make sure the tablet is charged before attempting this. You should have SuperUser app to confirm if you're successful. I have done this on a Windows 7 32bit laptop and tried different USB ports. Some users say plugging in the power cable when plugging in the USB cable helps.

** How to update the firmware manually ** - will remove root
Download latest firmware here. Do NOT unzip. Save it to the root (outside any folders) of the internal memory. Unplug tablet from PC. An update message will pop up. Continue update.

I dont think so because the firmware would be different . I think you have to find the rooted firmware which will be an image file then use the same process steps .

we advise people to use RESTORE and not UPGRADE, from our experience the upgrade option tends to create more "bricks"

Does this firmware flash it back to stock? ie, I updated the firmware from the Archos site, will this method nullify that firmware update?

Hello, from what I know, there is no custom firmware based on the last update, no one dumped the firmware so we can build a new rooted one.
We don`t detain any more (me, or admin) the 80 titanium to dump the updated firmware.
The community should step in and dump the newer firmware.

To answer to your question, yes it will revert back to the first firmware

The following users say thank you to globula_neagra for this useful post:

I'm not sure about what "dumping" the firmware is but here is a link to the updated firmware for the Archos 80 Titanium on their site - you don't have to be logged in to download it.  Hopefully somebody with make an easy root method for this update.  I have it on my device and it has, for me at least, improved my wifi signal significantly so I'm unwilling to go back to the stock firmware because of this.

Just choose Archos 80 Titanium from the drop down list

There are 2 ways to obtain root

1) Find/use a script method which will gain root
2)Dump the firmware from the tablet, rebuild the firmware with root.
