A preview to ‘Bull’ – next openAOS Android release for gen7/gen8

The first ReleaseCandidate has been done a while ago and we got some very important feedback from the testers – thanks again to everyone who filed tickets! We’re working hard with our limited resources to make this a great release, sadly this takes time.

As the RC is not advertized nor supported you haven’t read about it here on the openAOS blog. Still we figure we should show you what’s cooking now that we’re closing in. This release will still be based on Cyanogenmod 7 and will support Archos gen7 and gen8 devices (including A48IT).

Thanks to leijae for the video!

    Nice work you´ve done there. On a Archos5it Bull RC2 seems to be a bit slower than the anoa build.

    Good to see OpenAos isn’t dead yet.
    Since it was quite a while since the last post.

    I’m looking forward to an Image of this!

    Hi tbr,

    I hope video playback will soon supported… I know A5IT has pretty good GPU can handle 720p videos ( 800 Mhz Cpu and 430 Mhz GPU) …

    We know HW enabled Android makes Archos 5 IT fast…

    I wanna be a volunteer for testing builds with my Archos 5 Internet Tablet (32 GB ) .

      What we’re missing are people that do the coding, and the investigations though. That’s why we’re not cranking out weekly releases…

    I’m viewing the above vid & posting this on an a43 w/bull just fine.

  9. unnamed_hero says:

    Cool! Where can I get an image for my a5it?

  10. Michael says:

    I am totally new to this site. I’ve been looking around and I see that you’ve done some nice work there! But I can’t find the answer to the question whether the inbrowser flash works in Bull distribution or not.

    I want to test it too. I have an Archos 5it (500Gb).
