I have never had the problem of the activation popup. My method was to use a german proxy on the coby website and download the update app. Then to download/install I did a trial and error for the serial number (for the last 2 digits) until I found one that works.

Is it me or is there no hardware acceleration? Games run like crap, although the rest of the OS works quite well. My touchscreen has some issues around the edges, although I believe it is a problem with my tablet.
Rooted Acer A100 unlocked/TWRP/OC'd 1.5GHz/ICS/mem swap now has 32GB useable
Rooted Kyros 7022 rooted/ICS/battered and bruised but works like a champ
Stock Archos 80 G9 250GB w/ICS (wife's tab and she won't let me touch it)
I have a question. The camera and the terminal does not work only for me?
I figured out the proxy piece and the reason my SDCARD was not mounting correctly. Finally discovered (call me a noob, I deserve it) the German YouTube video and got past the serial number part. Now the only question I can think of is how come the screen no longer rotates?

I've been tinkering with my 7022 and installed this update, after increasing the partition size as explained.
I have two issues which i'm stumped on. My sdcard shows as /mnt/storage and the device can't find it for use with the camera etc. I keep getting the activation pop up too.
Any advice greatly received as my brain is starting to hurt :-)
Johnston411, The answer to your SDCARD question (which seems to mirror my original issue) is easily fixed by going back to the thread that told you how to increase the partition size and to be certain that you flash both the CM7 image (presuming you used that) and the NAND DATA file you made during this process. I originally had done so and then second guessing if I needed it or not redid mine leaving the NAND file out. After I went back and recreated the NAND file and flashed both it and the CM7 image all was right with my setup for the SDCARD. The way I got around the activation popup was I Googled and discovered a You Tube video (in German so I turned on the closed captioning to read what was being said) for the official way you need to "upgrade" these things. I had to temporaially setup my wifi setup to use a German proxy server I also found using Google as the Coby Germany site will only allow you in with proper German IPs. The last piece involved me looking at the You Tube screen at the example serial number (which was 101110010351) and using trial and error to find one that started the same where the last 4 numbers were different and were not already used (be sure you record this number for future use). This is because the one I have bought in the US did NOT have its serial number on the back, if you do then by all means use the one for your device.

Cheers for getting back to me.
I'm pretty sure I flashed the file I created but maybe I didn't.
I'll give it all another go.
Thanks again :-)
Hey, I'm new in the forum but have quite experience flashing roms on mobiles\tablets, I have sucessefully booted with this rom but I have just one problem:
The touchscreen does not work. Physical buttons do. I don't know why this happens. (Corby Kyros mid7022 with CWM)
Is there any way to get the full-sized tablet UI instead of the 7" tablet UI?
Thanks in advance.
Figured it out. Everything I'd read about changing to a different UI said to change it to ~170.
Well that's the wrong way to go. On the Coby, you need to change it to 110.

How did you get it to go into full tablet mode? I changed my lcd density to 110 in my build.prop and it still won't change
