How to enter flash mode

You can enter flash mode with power+volup or power+voldown after installing the SDE bootmenu


Installing SDE bootmenu

The first step is installing SDE bootmenu so you'll be able to actually flash non-archos software to the device. This will void your warrenty!

  1. Power on the tablet while holding the volume down button, release the power button as soon as the archos logo shows up but hold the volume button.
  2. Choose "Update Firmware" with the volume buttons and press the power button to accept
  3. The device now shows up as an empty mass storage device, mount the device and download the SDE bootmenu image to it.
  4. Unmount the mass storage device and press the power button again on the device to install

Flashing the kernel and initramfs

After installing SDE bootmenu you can install the kernel and initramfs. This is also done through a mass storage device.

  1. Power on the tablet while holding volume down
  2. Select "Developer Edition Menu"
  3. The first time you flash a kernel you'll have to remove the android kernel since the bootloader will default to that kernel over your custom developer kernel.
  4. Select "Flash Kernel and Initramfs"
  5. Mount the mass storage device that just appeared
