For those of you who got the Archos 5, there’s an easy way to install GMail, GoogleMaps, and Android Market onto your Archos 5. I have no idea why Archos even decided to not put Google apps as default (as they are the highlight of getting an Android device) but no worries, just install it yourself in couple easy steps.
1. Update your Archos 5 to the latest firmware by downloading the latest firmware here.
2. Download the Recovery Image file of HTC’s R
