Hi all, since some hours i own this tablet but, as lot of you, i'm not totally satisfied from this tablet: wifi with poor signal and other probs, useless hd mode, sometimes general lag, battery runs out fast and still testing...i need to root this device cos i want to try nofrills to oc the tablet and to try some roms that myb can handle so much better those issues, wifi and hd mode ones, i ask this cos i know that some os tweaks can change drastically  the device, i remeber my old galaxy tab 7.0 (the first one) it was so laggy...with a custom rom the device started working so much better...i'll try  the same thing with this archos 97 titanium hd if someone can tell me how to root this device and some hd roms to try cos this tab should run much faster if correctly tweaked. Thanks everybody that can help...of course i'll keep you updated.

I have started to build a rooted firmware for the ARCHOS 97 Titanium HD some days ago, I should post later when I done with tests.

Still, I don't think there's a lot to expect from root, most of the performance issues come from the hardware and firmware and tweaks probably won't help a lot to have a butter smooth tablet... I agree that's maybe worth trying to make some improvements.

Cheers.

I think that this is, of course, not top of the edge hw but, for what i know, the cpu is adequate for moving better all the system, myb it's not too powerful for that kind of ips panel (i use it in normal mode as the hd mode, as mentioned before, is unusable. You know more than me about tweaking, no doubt, but i think that some serious tweaking brings lot of life on this tablet, after all can't be worse. Me and my co-worker was expecting lot more from this device. Unfortunately we didn't read a lot about it, so we bought five of them a pig in a poke. Let us know when the rooted fw is ready and if you need some help or testing. Ciao =)

Hi there,

be warned you can brick your tablet, void your warranty and get a heart attack by struggling with your tablet.

I don't take any responsibility for this manual and your work with your tablet, this is only for advanced users with some knowledge in Linux and users with knowledge how to compile C source code.

 

FLASHING THE ARCHOS 97 HD TITANIUM:

I flashed my Archos 97 HD with the rkflashtool under Linux. Download the rkflashtool from http://sourceforge.net/projects/rkflashtool/ and modify the if clause:

Thanks for your post h3l1, great tutorial Wink

I'll see if I can fix the syntax highlighter problem, if I can't I'll check with the forum or syntax plugin developers.

 

I also to see if there is need of a packaged custom firmware for easier flashing for "non advanced" users, please let us know.

Cheers.

Hi admin,

 

yes a custom firmware to use with CWM would be nice. Rooted and adblocked hosts.conf file...

I'm trying to make one from the update.zip from Archos, but I'm getting error messages from update-script. Have to evaluate more into it.

 

Bye.

 Afterwards you can flash the CWM with: 

./rkflashtool w 0x00010000 0x00008000 < recovery.img
 So and now disconnect the tablet from USB and Power. Then hold again the "Volume -" button and insert again the Power cable. Now without the USB the tablet boots into the recovery. From here you can install ZIP from the sdcard, like a ZIP with SuperSU and su. Also be warned, there is a install-recovery.sh in /etc which checks if the recovery isn't original and overwrites it. So don't boot into normal android before you corrected this.

Thanks for a how-to, but could you please elaborate about these flashings steps. 

Like - where to get zip with su binaries? Is the 'sdcard' the same "root" directory on tablet to copy an official update.zip file to when updating? What to do with install-recovery.sh to prevent it from reversing the changes?

 

Please continue this thread, since there's not much info available yet on the internet on rooting the archos 97 titanium hd tablet. Thanks, people!

The ZIP file can be found by googling for "supersu installer zip"...

This zip file should be copied to the root directory of the sdcard and can then be installed by booting into CWM recovery, selecting "install zip from sdcard" and then there you can select files from your sdcard.

The install-recovery.sh can either be set to no execution permission with chmod 644 install-recovery.sh

or you can edit the file with an texteditor and uncomment all lines with a "#" (I left out the last log line).

But be warned again, you should know what you are doing because changing such things can prevent your tablet from booting, which happened to my tablet and I had to recover it with the backup and the flash tool.

Ok! I managed to get root on my Archos97TiHD, with what i assume, by following these steps:

Created system.loop,
made a backup copy of it before changing anything,
mounted system.loop,
changed permissions of install-recovery.sh  'chmod 644 install-recovery.sh' (actually i commented out few lines on this file, but i guess this involves more risks if script errors out during boot process due inproper editing - how should i know)
unmounted and flashed system.loop back to tablet with './rkflashtool w 0x00154000 0x00100000 < system.loop'.

Then, i searched the web for "supersu installer zip", 
got the zip from "[03.03.2013] SuperSU v1.25 - xda-developers" thread, copied zip file to my tablet.

Then, i flashed cwm recovery.img to tablet, booted to recovery as described in howto, followed cwm instructions to install this zip i previously copied. Rebooted, and finally, i had root access!

I actually, previously, adventured some more with other methods too, played with adb, got the tablet to reboot loop, flashed back previously done backup of system.loop, (blindly)playing with cwm seemed to help me out of it. :)  

 

Thanks, h3l1! This was an adventure with my first android device. :) I wonder if i also can create full system backup with 'rkflashtool'?

Hy

the Archos 97 HD is my first Tablet where i try to get root access.

I have allready compiled rkflashtool and I also can see my archos with lsusb.

 

When i try to make: ./rkflashtool r 0x0000 0x2000 &gt; testfile  

This is written to my console:

 

������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������

[1]+ Done ./rkflashtool r 0x0000 0x2000

 

and there is no testfile in the folder.

 

What am I doing wrong?

Best Regards

Markus

Try "./rkflashtool r 0x0000 0x2000 > testfile"

If you have ubuntu add sudo : "sudo ./rkflashtool r 0x0000 0x2000 > testfile"
