Firmware upgrade results in arclibrary boot failure

I upgraded my new archos 605 with the latest version of firmware. At the end of installation the player came up with an error message saying arclibrary failed to boot and that my Archos was not going to operate as a Windows media player. Ever since , ripped media files only sync from windows media player 11 to a single folder and are not displayed in the database - ie album, playlist etc

I managed to overcome the problem by doing a factory reset. Unfortunately doing this initially created more problems in that on reboot the main screen appearance looked as it should but was almost inoperable. When the usb cable was connected to my pc the disc did appear on My Computer . The system folder was only 1MB. By good fortune I had copied and saved my Archos files before I carried out the factory reset. Copying the original system files ( about 20MB) back to my Archos returned normal behaviour. Further, two additional buttons appeared. One was a manual arclibrary update button and the other a USB setup button . I cannot get file transfer to operate under windows media player mode and Windows media player 11. No problem though. I use PC hard drive mode and carry out a manual arclibrary update. None of this was possible prior to the factory reset. I believe I would still be having serious problems had I not saved and restored my system files

Hi Just got my new archos 101 8gb Spec said 2.2 but it came with2.0.54. on plugging in to PC the upgrade didnt happen so upgraded to 2.1.04 Everything that I have thrown at it works but I dont have...


Betty,
Archos has been saying Flash would be officially available for some time now, but it's still not out. There is a beta version that I'm using, works great for me:
First step to getting Flash working is to go to your settings menu, then Applications, then check the box to allow for Unknown Sources to be installed.
To get a Beta version of Flash working use this link (from your Archos tablet):
http://ge.tt/36fA44X
You should be prompted to install this APK file on your Archos 101 after it's downloaded, this will give you a decent version of Flash (it's taken from a Droid X which has similar hardware to the Archos 101).
The Version number of your Archos 101 firmware is different from the Android Operating System. Version 2.1.8 is the latest Archos firmware as of Feb 28, 2011, this is Android 2.2.1.
To force an update, you actually need to connect the Archos 101 to the internet, not to a PC. Once you're connected to a Wifi network and have access to the internet, go to your Settings, then scroll to the bottom to About Device. On this screen is a Firmware Update option, this will check for and download the latest. Once it's downloaded you'll be prompted to plug your tablet into the charger and restart it to apply the firmware.

Cant watch videos on web on archos 605 wifi


You should be on firmware version 2.1.04 (WMDRMPD:10.1) If connected to your computeer or on WiFi then :- Main Screen Menu Settings Firmware + Plugins and click on.... Online Firmware Update This version of the firmware does allow some videos. Unfortunately if the videos come up with blank screen with a red F9 in the middle this signifies a version of FlashPlayer not yet supported. We just have to wait and see if Archos are still going to support the 605 with more firmware updates or if their hands fare too ull with the new Archos 5 Android.

Your post/description indicates a possible problem with the firmware. It would seem that the Archos 6052_bing.gif would load but fail to finish and there restarts itself. This could only be possible if somehow the firmware has been corrupted or you tried a firmware upgrade but failed halfway.

There are several versions of the 605, you need to determine which one you have.

Things you can try:
1. Do a soft reset. Press on the power button for about 15 seconds;
2. Do a full/hard reset by removing the batteries and pressing the master reset button;
3. Try again the Systems Recovery. You may need also to format the internal HD but that would mean you loose whatever data is inside.

Alternately, you may need to update/re-install the firmware. A more complete and better explained firmware update procedures are here. Briefly, you have to download and save in your PC the ???????.aos file (there are several versions of the firmware. You need to determine which one is appropriate to your model), connect your 605 to the PC, copy/paste (drag & drop) the said file to the Archos device listed in "My Computer" (you may have to overwrite the older copy), disconnect 605, proceed to System Settings, tap on "Update Firmware". Follow on screen instructions.


If the above is not corrective, am afraid that your unit has been partially bricked. Some have reported serious hardware or firmware problems with the 605 that would require replacement by the manufacturer.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.


Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Will not upgrade to latest firmware


The newest firmware version is actually v 2.01.
The file should be called DI634M_firmware_201.bin and is engineered for North American products only. Does that apply to you?
You can get the file here.
Important! - Make sure that you use only hard-wired network connections for upgrading. Do NOT upgrade firmware on any router over a wireless connection. This might result in a device failure.
Here is also a page with detailed instructions.

If you have any more questions or this doesn't work for you, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Won't boot up and not recognised when connected to PC


MANUAL FIRMWARE UPGRADE PROCEDURE:
During the upgrading of the firmware, if you turn off the power of M800, either by manually switching off the power or removal of the battery, the file system of M800 will be damaged, which will lead to booting failure problem. When this happens, you will not be able to turn on M800. Booting failure problem can be easily repaired by “manual firmware upgrade”. The procedures for manual firmware upgrade are as follows:

1. After firmware upgrade, only the blue LED under LCD is on, but LCD display is not turned on, please proceed manual firmware upgrade.
2. Remove the battery.
3. Put the battery back into the player again.
* Notice ! : Do not turn on the power.
4. Connect the player to your PC.
* Notice ! : Do not turn on the power.
5. While pressing the volume down button, power on the player.
6. Now PC should recognize M800 as one of its hard disks.
7. Download the latest firmware file into the root folder of the player.
8. Disconnect the player from your PC.
9. The blue light LED under the LCD display will flicker.
10. Wait for about one minute, blue LED is off. Turn on the player.
The manual firmware upgrade is now completed.
