    Before I start off, This Tablet may be of no interest to anyone and it is old but I would like it more usable and enjoyable.

    I recently bought an Archos 5IT and it is running 2.045 Firmware.
    The Tablet wont allow me to install most of my backed up apps from other Archos Tablets,I am lucky I can install just maybe 4 of them.
    Even apps I find on web I am lucky I can get any to work

    My Problem is I can not install Arc tools to even have a jump start
    nor can I get flash player working or a Flash Supported Browser

    There is no Checkbox to tick for unknown Sources to Install 3rd party apps

    I can not install Tubemate unless it is Legacy Ver 1 and there is no option there to
    use an external player or convert media

    I wish to watch YouTube like many others
    M Stock Browser does not support flash

    Anytime i try to install an app I get what looks like Chinese text then a message saying app not installed

    I use to use the old methods on My Other Archos Tablets such as

    1) install Arc Tools. and Install Market
    2)Download Google play replace market with it

    but I can not get Arc tools to install
    Most of anything I look for I can not install

    Only Apps lib I have and I can not even sign in with out an error saying no connection please try again

    Thank You all if anyone can help me Install Flash Browser and have Youtube at least with a later version of Tubemate

    The tab has 160MB of storage - hardly enough for any apps at all these days (as time goes on, apps get larger - after 7 years [it's that old], maybe you should rethink your desire to use the device). You're not going to find a browser that supports flash and that can run in it. You're not going to find many apps that will install in it, and most that will, will run very slowly. (Connect it to the Google Play Store directly and see what apps show. There probably won't be many.)

    I agree with Rukbat, a device with such low specs is not likely to have many apps still available on the play store, and even fewer that can run on such a model from sources out side of the play store. Anyway, if you can get connectivity on the device through WiFi or a tether of some kind, you might try browsing the internet for a cloud based browser. You navigate to them using whatever browser your device has and then do your browsing from their platform. That's how we solved the Flash player issue back in the day. The cloud service runs flash and adobe and any other add-ons and simply displays them on your screen. It was almost a VPN with just a few differences.

    Thank You guys for Your support

    Yea the Could based Surfing sounds ok

    Funny my Archos 43 which only has 16GB can do Netflix, Youtube and run Flawlessly.

    I may sell both of these Archso 5 Tablets, the 8 Gig, and the 16 gig.
    sadly I sold my 32 gig a while back

    over all I prefer my X10 Dragon Touch and Polaroid M111H for home use
    I may get anorther Archos 43 I prefer to carry Small

    Heck yeah! Gave a decent amount to the Kickstarter that brought it back for the current season.
