Special Developer Edition (SDE) for Archos G9 Tablets
Now the SDE has still not been officially released, but I found a forum post on XDA Developers Forum explaining how the SDE Menu could be enabled by following the instructions below.
- Root your device with Paul O’Brien’s root here. (it won’t work if the device is not rooted)
- Unzip the content of gen9_enable_sde.zip to a directory.
- Launch the script enable_sde.
Reboot into recovery mode, you should have the SDE menu now, you can flash your own kernel+initrd the same way it was done on previous generation.
One trick: the initramfs should be still named initramfs.cpio.gz, but it should be compressed with lzma with current kernel.
Another trick: to get rid of paul’s root as it messes up sound and sleep, use this:
adb shell rm /data/local.prop
