Android Firmware Update Problems ...
Last night I went ahead and took the plunge ... Updated the Firmware on my Archos 70 Internet Tablet 250GB (2.1.3 - Android 2.2.1).
My tablet still worked after the update. Slower than before though.
This morning I found out that I can't get online!
None of my four radio apps work (they all worked fine before).
Bible.is no longer works.
All three of my browsers no longer work.
Firmware Update doesn't work (can't connect to the Internet).
Wi-Fi shows that my Archos is connected to my Internet service. My son and I are both online with our computers, so there is nothing wrong with our Internet connection.
Looks like I have no choice now, but to reformat the Archos and start all over again (for the 4th time!!!!) .... That will be very time consuming, as I will have to download all of my many apps all over again, and then reload all of my files all over again ....

Hi. This is a problem that has been reported in the Archos forums. The way to solve it is to install the firmware updates. The latest one was posted only a few days ago. On your Archos 70IT go to Settings>About Device>Firmware update and download the update. Otherwise go to the Archos site here:
I have the same machine and I am running Android 2.2.1 with no problems.
Android 2.2.1 is the operating system. The firmware update is for the Archos generation 8 machines, including the Archos 70IT. I think the latest update is 2.1.04. They are two different things.
