I have an Archos 70i and am still unable to get Android Market on it. I want to get a flash player and other apps which I believe is available on Android Market. Can anyone help me in simple English, please? I do have Appslib already but this is lacking the apps i want.

You probably need to side-load a Market.apk file that's been hacked to work with your device. This will require root. You could also load a custom ROM with the Market already on it. I recommend searching XDA.

That said, you won't be able to get Flash unless you have/get 2.2. Flash requires Android 2.2+ as well as an ARMv7 or better processor. The 70 series is supposed to have an A8 Cortex based on ARMv7, so that part's OK.

As of March 10 you can install the 'ArcTools' from the AppsLib.

This will let you install the Android Market - and thus also Gmail, Flash and all the things which are unavailable otherwise.

Did this yesterday on my Archos 101 and this worked without problems . I know now have the official Facebook, the TweetCaster program - to name but a few programs I was really missing.

Edelcom, I loaded it and AppsLib informed me that the eLocity is an unsupported device. – user5008 May 10 '11 at 22:04
