Android 2.2.1 for Archos 7 Home Tablet v2

The user “birdiebnl” on the ArchosFans.com forums has found a way to put Android 2.2.1 on your Archos 7 Home Tablet v2. I haven’t personally tried it yet but I wanted to share it nonetheless. 🙂

Some of the features in this ROM include:

  • A working version of Android 2.2.1.
  • Sensors seem to work.
  • The Google Market also seems to work.
  • Build number froyo1.00 MASTER.eng.temp.20110225.134212.
  • Everything else seems to work as expected.

There is even rooted version available by the user “hvdwolf”. This includes even more software. A link can be found in the topic below;

The ROM and installation instructions can be found here: Custom ROM for A7HTV2: Android 2.2 (7HTV2_22.03)

As clearly stated, keep in mind that this is not a valid way of updating your device and that it’s not guaranteed for you although it does for most people. And it could void your warranty, as far as I know. That’s the only thing which stopped me from trying it myself at this point. I’m pretty sure that curiosity will take over any time soon though. 🙂

If either “hvdwolf” or “birdiebnl” is reading this, keep up the good work guys!
