From openPMA

Welcome to the openPMA wiki!

openPMA is an open-source project that aims to implement an improved operating system for the Archos Personal Media Assistant, short "PMA". The PMA is a portable video/audio player and recorder with built-in Wi-Fi, a 30 GB harddisk and PDA-functionality that uses Linux/Qtopia as an operating system. You can find official information about it here:

Due to a hack of the PMA's bootloader, it is now possible to modify the PMA's operating system which resides in a file called "aimage.img". You will find information about the bootloader hack and how to apply it here, following the link "PMA Bootloader Hack/Homebrew Firmware":
