How to install a firmware


Firmware is another name for Operating System (OS) or System Software. Below, you will find the instructions and the latest software to update your specific ARCHOS device. You do not have to install all the updates, only the most recent one. Each update takes into account all the previous updates unless specified otherwise.

Internet Media Tablets (ARCHOS 5, 5g, 7)
Via a WiFi Connection

Update your device directly by going to Tools > Settings > Firmware & Plug-ins > Online Firmware Update. Press OK and then follow the on-screen instructions.

Without a WiFi Connection

Step 1. Download the firmware to your computer
When you download the update file, your browser may warn you that the file 'could be harmful'. This is normal because browsers are not familiar with files that have a .AOS extension and suspect that they could be malicious. These files are not harmful to your computer.

Step 2. Turn on your ARCHOS device and connect it to your computer with the USB cable

Step 3. On the ARCHOS, choose to enable the USB and wait a few seconds for the ARCHOS to be detected by the computer
Step 4. Copy and paste the downloaded firmware (.AOS file) to the ARCHOS device.

Case 1: Your ARCHOS is detected by your computer as a Hard Drive (E: for example) in Windows® Explorer. Paste the update file directly onto the ARCHOS hard drive icon.
Case 2: Your ARCHOS device is detected as a 'Mobile Device' in Windows® Explorer (not as a hard drive) and you see just two folders Data and Media when you open it. Paste the update file into the folder called Data.
Case 3: Your ARCHOS device is detected as a 'Mobile Device' in Windows® Explorer (not as a hard drive) and you see Internal Hard Drive when you open it. Open this Internal Hard Drive icon and you will see the various ARCHOS folders inside (Video, Music, etc.). Paste the update file into this area but be careful not to paste it into any of the folders there.

Step 5. Disconnect the Device
Unplug the USB cable (for Mobile Device connections) or use the "safe disconnect" green arrow icon (for Hard drive connection) in the system tray before unplugging the USB cable.

Step 6. Allow the Device to Update itself
Once you disconnect the USB cable, the device will recognize the new update file and invite you to install it. Follow the on-screen instructions. If it does not suggest an update, this means that the .AOS file did not get placed on the "Root" of the device.

Can you explain this firmware? I've looked at other forums like archosfans and there is no mention of this firmware. Also the size is small for an firmware... I would love to update my Archos 5
