Archos has rolled out a new software update package for its 80 and 101 G9 slates, which addresses fixes for audio and hard drive, as well as WiFi issues.
The 80 and 101 G9 tablets, whose name stands for an 8” and 10.1” display respectively, are powered by ARM Cortex A9 processors and come preinstalled with Google’s latest Android operating system, Ice Cream Sandwich.
According to the changelog
, the previous update package is dated May 3 and has the version number 4.0.6.
A longtime WiFi issue that persists from version 4.0.5 gets a new fix in this release (yet another one, better said). It also addresses other issues concerning audio bugs with certain apps: - Applications: fix no audio when launching video capture impacting applications like Skype;
- Display: graphics performance enhancements;
- Hard drive based products: avoid potential loss of hard drive when 3G USB port is switched on with no peripheral attached;
- Wi-Fi: fix some more disconnect cases happening on some access points.
The bits are available only in one package for both tablets, and we provide the link for users who own Archos 80 and 101 G9 devices to download and install the latest firmware.
