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.
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

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.
