what about clockwork mod recovery? same? or do we need it dump to compare to the 7048's and modify.
i just checked the forum thread that youve given me but the person said he was unsucessfull. theres a cx-01 root guide on the but its not the same device. i have the coby adb installed but the window just opens flashes some lines and then closes in less than 3 seconds. do i need to do something special because im running vista or am i just not doing something i should have done before opening it. is there another root guide availabe for the 7048 in another forum or is it as far as weve come to this point. also i have the drivers installed but my comp cant find them and i went to the directory which i have extracted to and tried to select them from there but keeps saying installaion failed. thanks for the advice. im really looking forwared to having root access on my 8048

I don't provide windows support, you have to figure out your windows problem.
And the user said it did indeed work for him.
As far as recovery I don't think any exists.

Due to the overwhelming PM's that I receive, I am unable to answer all the questions and many questions are duplicates so PLEASE post all questions on this forum so I may better help you and any others who are having the same issues.
No PM's regarding windows questions will be answered, I am a Linux Guy.
adb wont stay open my drivers say this device is running properly.i dont know what could i be doing wrong.
Go to UnlockRoot ---- Simply root your Android devices. You have to install in Windows(doesn't work in Linux-Wine) Click first greeen button on left. Say yes to reboot tablet.

Go here Coby 8048 Recovery, Custom Rom

I am also new to the whole rooting process.
I have a mid8048 that I got for Christmas. I myself was very aggravated without the play store because I could not get any of the better apps. But as mentioned I downloaded amazon appstore (Was very delighted, love the free app of the day). Also I got 1mobile app which allowed me to download facebook for android and some other apps that Amazon does not offer (like utorrent etc). However my main frustration is that I bought a 16gb sd card so that I could use this tablet to it's best and have tons of apps installed and don't have to rotate them out when the internal storage is full. 16gb would be sufficient for what I want accomplished. I found out that the way the android tablet functions is that it recognizes 2 different internal memory, one as internal and one as "sd card". So even though I have my external sd card plugged in the apps do not move to this. I have researched and found a way to swap the two so that I can move my apps to the actual external sd card with all the space.
But what I am finding out is that in order to fully accomplish the swap, I need to root my tablet. I do not want to break it so I really would like some guidance on the best way to accomplish this without ruining the device. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I ended up rooting my device and trying the fix to the sd card by adjusting the vold.fstab and somehow ended up deleting it. And when deleting it, it also wiped my sd card clean and now I can't find an original copy. If there is anyone out there that would please send me a copy of it from their 8048-4 I would seriously appreciate it more than anything. My tablet is useless now and I cannot even load it unless it is connected via usb to my pc.
Thank you very much guys.
