I know you are going to say that why did I install the new version, because everything was well with the old one. I don´t even know why I tried the new one, but the problem is that it did it all wrong. After installing the new v0.61, Gmail and market have stopped working. I guess both problems are for the same reason, I can not create a gmail account in the gmail app, and because of that I guess the market is not loading....., gmail app doesn´t load, it tries and closes itself inmediatly, and the same for the market.

 

I have tried to uninstall the google apps, uninstalling the whole arctools, but nothing seems to solve the problems.... any idea please, because I am afraid I am going to restore the whole android system to the defaults, snifff......

 

My tablet is an Archos 101 internet tablet with the newer firmware, I can not remember right now the exact version, I installed it yesterday.

 

Best regards and thank you in advance, I look forward to hearing a solution from you.....

Not sure this problem is related to Arctools update, release 0.61 was tested to work on Gen8 devices.

I suggest that you to Settings/Manage Application/All and you empty data and empty cache then Force Stop for all these applications you are using. Then you can use Arctools "Remove Applications" feature to remove all files. Finally, reboot and install again Apps thru Arctools.

Let us know how it goes, thank you.

Hello. First of all, thank you very much for your answer.

I did all you mentioned, but I am afraid it did not solve the problem. The firmware version is v 2.4.82 and android version is 2.2.1. I noticed that google talk stopped working too.

 

Anyway, I managed to solve the problem installing gapps4archos2.apk, I uninstall every google app from arctools, then I uninstall arctools. I have to say that I had gapps4archos2 already installed before arctools, maybe the problem could come because of this, but uninstalling gapps4archos2 and reinstalling arctools did not work. So I uninstall everything, uninstall gapps4archos2.apk and then run gapps4archos and installed google apps from it, and all is working again. The problem is that the market version is very old, and I don´t see how to updated to the new one. I have been able to update google maps to the last version from market, but I don´t see android market in the market nor in the appslib....

And also I think that youtube app is not the good one, it seems to be using the mobile version of the youtube page, I don´t know, the quality of the videos are very bad.....

So, if you see any way to update market app and install the good youtube app, I assume it would be OK for me, anyway, arctool seemed to me a much better app than gapps4archos, but I have to say that this one worked for me much better.....

 

Best regards and thanks again for your support.

To update the Market, knowing that Arctools does not work for you, you can try to download the latest 3.4.4 version of the Market, you should have no problem getting it on google, search for "Android Market 3.4.4 APK". 

Then the APK file need to be copied to this location: /data/opinions-on-teclast-p90hdst/froyo/system/app

This requires a File manager that is able to browse some "hidden" directories on the device, I am not sure if "Root explorer" can do that if the machine is not rooted, you may require to use ADB.

If this is too complicated, I'll try to look if I can prepare a Market 3.4.4 only package on Arctools just for you to deploy the latest Market.

Again, thank you very much for your so fast response. I will try what you say, I have astro explorer installed, do you think I will be able to copy the file in its place with it?. Anyway, why can´t I just install the apk as other apk´s?, just copying anywhere and running it?.

 

I apreciate your support, what do you think that can be the problem I have with arctools?.

 

What can you tell me about youtube?, I have seen in some videos in youtube that people has another diferent youtub app than me, much better... any idea how to install the last one?.

 

Best regards and thank you very much.

Well, you may actually try to remove the Market, copy it to another directory and run it, but that method usually do not work well on Gen8 devices.

Best method would be to update the files using a Filemanager, as I said. Can't remember if Astro is able to do it, just give it a try. If the /data/opinions-on-teclast-p90hdst/froyo path can't be seen by Astro, try to enter by hand the full path to change directory in, if Astro permits it. 

Regarding Youtube, Archos started to ship a simple app with all their devices, it has way less features than the original version that you can get... in the Market.

If the problem persists and you can afford reformating your Tablet, you may restart with Arctools from zero, following the tutorial:
