How to Jailbreak Your Archos 5 and How to Get Most Flash Games!!!!!




For those of you that saw my last Instructable it was a concept so sorry. But this is proven to work. Also when you jailbreak your archos 5, It means that you have every plugin for free. BUt for some plugins like the tv snap on I think you have to buy them. And for the flash games you cannot get games that use the arrow keys because obviously....there is no arrow keys

Step 1: Flash Games.

now for the flash games follow this simple video (all thanks to dlinkd2 for video)

Step 2: Jailbreak

Yes now what this jailbreak does is it makes you get your plugins for free!!! Watch this video or go to (praise to bobty)

Step 3: Play Around With Your Discovery.

Now you can try to look up games that are somewhat similar to the ipod touch and you can get flash apps and much more thanks for viewing!!! When I say somewhat similar I don't mean you can get the same games on the iPod touch on the Archos 5.

    Hello my dear friend Popper122!
    I am posting this comment here, today, to inform you that your instructables could be way better!
    For instance,
    when someone see a instructables with random text like this


    They just stop reading it.
    Also, you might want to spell check your instructables. Because the way it is currently, it look like it was written by a six years old kid, and it is not good for other to read, it is really annoying.
    I gues you are kinda new to this website, you are just learning the hard way and it is ok.
    Hey dude,

    Also as you can see this is my first instructable and i don't want to steal people's videos without giving them credit. THis is for people who want to know hoe to jailbreak an archos 5 and get flash games or apps so if i made some mistakes there is no need to be harsh. Also I'm not new to the website I've been here for years but on another account and haven't mad an instructable on this topic so my instructable looked kind of noobish because I forgot to review it.
