Archos released an update for Gen8 tablets

The French tablet giant Archos released an update for their older tablets yesterday.  The update included a number of bug fixes and a new integrated Adobe Flash install.

If you're not sure if you have a Gen 8 tablet, this update applies to the Android tablets released last year by Archos, the model numbers are 28, 32, 43, 70, 101. I don't think this includes the Arnova tablet, ereaders, or netbook that Archos have shipped.

Just out of curiosity, is anyone using the original firmware? I thought most of the Archos tablets had custom firmwares. Is that true?

  1. I have an Archos 32 and have installed 3 or 4 official firmware updates over the last 6 months or so. I’ve never seen a custom firmware for it but there are Google Market hacks since the Gen8’s only ship with Archos’ own AppsLib market installed.
