Archos G9 tablets get Ice Cream Sandwich update

Fixes Wi-Fi and HDMI problems

Archos has announced that a firmware update is available for owners of its G9 tablet range.

The download to version 4.0.5 is available now and fixes Wi-Fi issues and problems with audio and video out via the HMDI port. The firm bumped the G9 devices up to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich earlier this month.

Archos said: "Unique Archos add?ons for Ice Cream Sandwich include full 1080p support for most video codecs, movies and TV shows description and subtitles automatic download, wireless content sharing between your device and any computer or DNLA compatible TV’ and 3D video support for MKV3D files."

Archos is one of a handful of vendors to update its tablets to ICS. Asus recently upgraded its Transformer TF101 tablet but the firmware introduced a number of problems including random reboots. The firm is still trying to fix the issues caused by the update.

Those wishing to upgrade their Archos G9 tablet can do so by pressing the 'A' notification or by the system update section of the about tablet menu. Archos recently announced a set of new tablets for 2012 including the G10 xs which has a detachable keyboard dock.
