    I have a coby / kyros / telechips 8048 (it's actually my Step Dad's) tablet that I've managed to munge up recovery mode on. I have a good recovery image now, but I can't figure out how to get this thing into fastboot so I can flash it.

    I've tried various key combinations with no luck.

    I've also tried "adb reboot bootloader" and "adb reboot-bootloader" -- but those just seem to power off the unit, not actually put them in fastboot mode.

    I've searched around all over tonight and I can't find the magic sauce, anyone know how?

    Thanks.

    power off, press and hold volume up, press and release power once you see coby logo keep holding volume up for 10 seconds now you are in fastboot.

    Just to follow up, that fixed the recovery, then I installed your rooted gapps -- everything's good.

    OH NO....spent the whole day reading and trying to figure this all out - thought I was "getting" it. Followed these steps and I have the COBY sign and nothing else - it is just sitting there, won't power on or off, just sitting....it's going on 5 minutes now with no response. What do I do and what did I do? HELP

    after messing with it for awhile I finally got it to power back off and back on. I guess I am back to reading some more.

    You shouldn't need to do this unless you've messed up your recovery. Otherwise just install the gapps package using the built in update (there's a sticky.)
