Default Archos 7 (A7OHB) updates?

If anyone here can answer this, Thanks!

I picked up a used Archos 7 from the Amazon marketplace, so I'm not sure what I have here, but it says:

Model number A70HB
Firmware version 1.0.15
Kernel version 2.6.25 root@ubuntu #1501
Build number RK-1.2.9.eng.root.20101521.140848

I tried the official update procedure, but nothing visible seemed to happen. I emailed Archos support with the above info, and they replied "you already have the latest firmware for your model", which makes me wonder if I have some odd prototype that isn't easily updated.

The Appslib app works, and I've already downloaded a few nice apps and I'll admit I'm enjoying this little Android device, but I wonder:

Can this thing run Android 2?

Will there ever be a way to view Youtube or Netflix on this?

Thanks!
