You can update within the Archos- once connected to wifi it should then just serach for updates and present them to you-either you can update or not-your choice. Then serach for arctools and install-very easy. Reboot and the market becomes available to you.

Big,big thanks to bobthewibble but he has given us a nice little guide to set up.

1. Plug it in to charge. It's generally thought to be good to let it charge ALL the way to 100% on the first go to teach it what the battery capacity is. So if you can, leave it plugged in until then. You can use it while it's charging. Mine only got to 96% and seemed to stop there, jumping to 100% when I unplugged it. Go through start up wizard to get settings and wifi sorted. Agree to install the third party software as part of this.
2. Update the firmware - it should tell you to do this automatically otherwise it's in the settings menu that you reach by pressing the four line icon on the right (menu) and then the About device option at the bottom of the list.
3. In that same menu open Power Management and change it to 'Overdrive' (impacts battery life but makes everything work better). As an aside it's said to be good to let the battery drain all the way on first use too, so don't worry about letting that happen.
4. Go to the installed AppsLib program now on your homescreen (Archos's own version of the Google Android Market - not very good) and install ArcTools as the first thing you do (it's the top tool in the Tools category, and it's free).
5. Open Arctools and Install 'Default Apps and Market v3.0.26) by downloading it and then installing it. This gives you access to the full Google Android Market, hurrah!
6. Play in the market and search through the top free apps and games
7. Buy a minimum of 8gb microSD card when you realise you've filled the internal memory already
8. Install LauncherPro from the Market - it's an alternative to the standard homescreens (the pages you see when you press the home button), but the main reason to use it is that I found I had really annoying pauses when changing orientation or reloading the homescreens. Using an alternative like LauncherPro totally fixes that I've found (ADW Launcher is another popular, but paid for one).
9. Personally I recommend Dolphin Browser HD as my preferred internet browser, definitely scout around the market and try different ones.
10. Try some different keyboards, I don't like the stock one, however I'm having a problem that alternative ones sit UNDER the side bar on the right... hopefully there's a fix. I use Swype on my phone but it's a pain to install so trying Swiftkey Tablet X on here at the moment (half price on the market) and TouchPal Keyboard which is a new free one that looks decent.

Hope that's useful, fire away with any questions

I think that although Java is part of Andriods OS you cannot without some kind of emulator. I will try later on when i get home to confirm but remember there are 100s if not 1000s of free games to downalod and play on Andriod so you probably will not miss them much.

No probs..for the cash it is a great bit of kit. useful too!

ordered one from cpw, post here so I can find the tips in here in the future

good deal

Just a note ordered one and got an email saying they are sending item out later due to high demand but the email said will be the next working day

Great deal, have already got one from recent CPW thread but voted hot.

After reading the posts I couldn't help but buy one. Was thinking of getting the ipad2 for a christmas present for myself but will hold off now and maybe get the ipad 3 when it comes out.

Good to see the advice was useful, thanks for reposting chapchap.

Bought one Many thanks OP

This should be much hotter, cheaper than the cpw deal.

Don't no whether this works but worth a try with other devices?

Before you do anything, plug your Android in to its mains charger, and leave it alone until the LED goes green.
Now, with the cable still connected, hold down the Power button and the Volume Down button at the same time, until the device turns on, and you see the Motorola logo in the centre, and a single line of white text appear at the top left of the screen.
Immediately unplug your cable, and don't press anything.
Leave your Xoom in this condition for as long as it takes, until it switches itself off. NOTE: THIS COULD TAKE AN ENTIRE DAY OR SO! However, it really is worth doing it.

Once your Xoom switches off (literally as soon as you physically can after it turns itself off), plug it back in to the mains charger, and leave it alone (switched off) again until the LED goes green.

Repeat the same process again one more time (AGAIN, COULD TAKE ANOTHER ENTIRE DAY... POSSIBLY SLIGHTLY LONGER).

Now, this time when your Xoom switches off, leave it switched off and fully recharge it (with the Xoom switched off) until the LED goes green.

You can now start using your Xoom normally, and should see a substantial battery runtime increase.

This works because new (or relatively new) batteries are never calibrated to provide their full capacity. Ever notice how your laptop, phone, or other rechargeable-battery-powered device has the occasional sudden massive drop in remaining capacity? This is due to the lack of proper calibration. By fully charging and discharging the battery at least twice, with a smooth consistent draw of power during discharge, the battery is able to determine is TRUE maximum capacity, and will charge to that level each time.

Battery calibration is something you should repeat every 4 to 6 months, depending on how regularly you use your device on the battery (the more you use it, the more often you'll need to recalibrate).

Do NOT store your Xoom with less than 50% capacity remaining in the battery for more than a day, or you'll start to lose the maximum potential the battery can offer. If your battery drops below 50% charge, and you intend to switch it off, you should recharge it ASAP.

Do NOT store your Xoom in cold conditions AT ALL. The cold is an absolute battery killer, and the second most common cause of battery death.

Observe this calibration and maintenance guide, and you should be enjoying a healthy battery runtime with your Xoom (or any other Battery-powered device, for that matter) for many years to come.

This may be cheaper but I'd happily pay more to use a different courier. Always found Yodel very difficult to work with.

So you would pay £170 buying this from Amazon rather than use Yodel ?
