Google Apps For Archos Available
For those of you wanting Google Apps for your Archos Gen8 tablet, XDA forum member Dreetje has posted a link to code.google.com where you can download gapps4archos.
Originally put together by Kenyu73, note that this appInstaller cannot be installed if you have already installed any other gApps installer. Everytime appInstaller programs are switched you must reset your device back to stock. If you have never installed any market/gApps installer, then there is no need to reset.
Apps such as Android Market, YouTube and GMail are included. Reboot your device after installing.
For more information, including instructions and the download link, visit the forum thread.
