Archos may not be the biggest dog on the block, but it does do a good job of supporting the hardware it releases. It's currently sending OTA updates to its 80/101 G9 and the 101XD tablets, which mostly just bring some minor bug fixes to the devices.
For the 80/101 G9, build 4.0.28 mostly brings video tweaks, as well as one small touchscreen optimization:
- HDMI: avoid interference of CEC detected as DPAD with some games such as Max Payne
- Video: fix playback of some MP4 files
- Video: fix aspect ratio on some H264 files
- Touchscreen panel: ensure on some devices a proper wakeup when powering screen back on
The 101XS is being bumped to v4.1.2, which delivers some application enhancements, HDMI playback improvements, and a fix for the Google backup manager:
- Archos applications: add Archos multimedia server back, update Archos Video, Music, File Manager, GamePad Mapping Tool to be in par with GooglePlay versions.
