Hi

I am new to these forums. I have a Archos 97 Carbon 16GB with RK2918 CPU. The problem - as with most Android devices - is the apps storage, 512MB. This really is a waste of the 16GB. I have seen custom firmware elsewhere on Arctablet with 2GB of app storage, however my micro USB socket is broken - pushed into unit - so I wondered if anyone knows if I can "flash" this Kasty custom firmware using ClockWorkMod (CWM) all I see are CWM for RK3066 & RK3188, does anyone know where I can get CWM for RK2918?

Is what I want to do possible. Like I said I am new to forum and Android, most forums seem to write gobbledy gook and only include part of any stages, which is a: annoying & b: probably because they know no better.

So if some intelligent person could assist me I would be grateful.

 

Regards

I am afraid this is not possible. Having 4 GB space for apps would need to re-partition your device that, to my knowledge, can only be done by connecting it to a PC and flashing a firmware with Rockchip Batch tool or equivalent (RK Android Tool on Windows or rkflashtool on Unix)

Even if there is a CWM Recovery that work on your Carbon (maybe the RK2928 generic one from androtab.info) I don't think CWM Recovery would help in that task Confused

Cheers.

If only way is by Rockchip, can anyone tell me if it is possible to solder new micro usb onto my motherboard.

How do I take unit apart, there are no screws.

Also can I buy micro-usb socket, if so from where.

 

thanks in anticipation.Confused

pWithout knowing the tablet, a specialist should be able to open it, and then install new USB port. But I don't think that you need a new USB port, I think the connections on the board are broken. This could be fixed by someone who could solder the USB port again.
