This post describes a dirty (but effective) workaround to individually disable data synchronization of the installed Google apps, while keeping others (e.g. Android Market) intact.
The Archos 101 has a crappy touch screen, as all the owners of this device already know. Most of the other problems could be fixed using a custom rom like urukdroid. But the touchscreen has been bugging me for the past year now: the touchscreen sometimes just acts weird (wild and random clicks, or almost no reaction), until it is “recalibrated”. No wonder, since it is a cheap USB touch screen “UNITEC USB Touch (Win7)”, probably made for windows 7 netbooks. Since the recalibration is hidden deep in the android settings, but needs regular access, I wrote a simple app as a “shortcut” to it. You can find the app download link at the end of the article.
