How to get best of your Archos Internet Tablet

Archos provides its own AppsLib. It is not bad, but Google's Android Market has many many applications to choose from. You can install Google Market, but first please ensure that you are running recent firmware (you can check in: Settings / About).You need to run firmware built on top of Android 2.2. You can also install some other Google applications which are not directly supported on Archos, for example Google Maps.
Also you can install better version of Flash player (until Archos get certified by Adobe).

How do you download flash player


With Archos 70 Internet Tablet, you need to download a specific version of Adobe Flash Player from Google Market since it runs Android OS. And A70 doesn't come with GMarket, rather Appslib, which doesn't quite cut it.

Luckily someone has made a neat little .apk file thath as Google Market, which lets you download GMarket and download/install all its apps/games/etc on your A70.

Just download the following .apk file and install it on your A70, afterwards download Adobe Flash Player from Google Market. However, this hack ONLY works on 2.2 froyo android OS, so make sure your A70 firmware is up to date.

I'd also recommend installing Dolphin Browser HD as it seems to provide a more refined flash browsing experience coupled with the Adobe Flash Player.

How do yo update the flas softwer


As posted to another person, download this .apk file and install it on your A70 (It must be running 2.2 froyo firmware to work, if running 2.1 you need different .apk).
It'll give you Google Market, where you can download Adobe Flash Player that updates itself... i've had 2 updates from flash since Dec 25th upon getting this.
