Special Developer Edition (SDE) for Archos G9 Tablets

Back in October, Archos released the GPL source code for Archos G9 Tablets and at the time the Special Developer Edition (SDE) was not released even though it is available for G8 devices.

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.

  1. Root your device with Paul O’Brien’s root here. (it won’t work if the device is not rooted)
  2. Unzip the content of gen9_enable_sde.zip to a directory.
  3. Launch the script enable_sde.

Another trick: to get rid of paul’s root as it messes up sound and sleep, use this:
