I have an archos 40 titanium and I'd like to install cwm (already rooted). There is no official support but on this thread they say their instructions worked for the 45 titanium which has almost the same specifications (same processor and RAM amount ), only the screen size differ (+0.5 inch). Is it considered safe to follow the instructions for my 40ti?


When unofficially modifying your phone, nothing is safe... But if others say it worked, give it a shot. Just keep in mind that anything can go wrong, so back up your data and have a Plan B for recovering your system.

Edit: Plan B (how to recover your phone):

Recovery Software: http://www.archos.com/faq/index.php?action=artikel&cat=120&id=301

Stock ROM: http://update.archos.com/AFMv1/storage//files/full/a40ti/20130922.101129/OTA972121_8916_V007049.zip

  • Thank you. What plan B? Backup the recovery mode using fastboot? – Vinz243 Aug 9 '14 at 13:11
  • Sure, that'd work. I'd just find fastboot files and get ready to flash them if needed. – IAmTheSquidward Aug 9 '14 at 13:37
  • I saw that there is no fastboot backup command, so how? – Vinz243 Aug 9 '14 at 13:41
  • I'm on moble so my ability to help is somewhat crippled, my apologies. Google stock ROM (your phone model) – IAmTheSquidward Aug 9 '14 at 13:45
  • I just edited my answer with what you will need to recover your phone if it goes fubar – IAmTheSquidward Aug 9 '14 at 14:03
