    This is Frank Garrett.
    So my brand new tablet got bricked with no reason (...just for fun dammit) and i have already googled absolutely everything that could possibly help me but with no results. So it brought me to making this thread - the last thing i am trying to do before throwing out the tablet.

    Well my tablet just got really laggy once and i tried to delete some applications that i've installed there, and after i did reboot it as usual. But it didn't launch as it should. Instead it gives me the "COBY" logo and that it - it just stays with this freaking logo all the time till it gets turned off. So i've tried to get it into the Recovery mode - but with no result either. It either does not doing anything but showing "COBY" logo, or just gives me black screen.

    So i have absolutely no idea what to do (adb?, livesuit?) or is it even possible To Do anything, because i'm not sure if its totally broken or else...
    Help me please.

    @Shirik: Something says to me that you used Livesuite to try and install a ROM. If you did, you're screwed. Livesuite and ADB require USB debugging be enabled in the firmware, and since there is no firmware you can't enable USB debugging. Therefore you have no means to restore your tablet.

    @rtype540: Unless someone can get you the correct drivers it's unlikely you will be able to resolve the problem you're having with the touchscreen.

    @Shirik and rtype540: You should have read the sticky posts at the top of the Generation 3 Development forum before trying to do anything. However, you didn't, and now your only alternative is to contact Coby and pay $15 each for the privilege of returning the tablet to them for an exchange, if you cannot get your tablets functioning correctly.

    No i did not, if i did i'd surely mention that...

    Speaking of which my tablet is doing some wierd thing - after being turned on for about one or two hours "COBY" logo changes to Android loading screen. Well i didnt take a chance waiting more then 10 hours for what happens next but still.


    Is it possible to somehow use livesuit on it? Its kinda dead on usb and everything so i don't know

    Well, I apologize as my intent was not to offend. It's simply that damage done using Livesuite seems to be (unsurprisingly) common lately. If you at least installed ClockworkMod recovery in place of the stock recovery before you had problems, there is an avenue to fix things. Otherwise, you're screwed since the tablet cannot complete its booting process, and therefore you don't have access to USB Debugging.

    It's possible, if kernel panics it will force a factory reset and your tablet would then boot, this really depends on what you removed.

    You can only send commands once it gets past coby screen, your post stated you did get past coby. When you get to that point again type adb shell

    I dont know anything about widows, sounds like you don't have adb setup or something.

    Well that rules adb out. Now only two choice hope for kernel panic and that you didnt remove critical files.

    Or
    Livesuite which can render your tablet useless. It's useless now also so no real loss there.

    Yes won't hurt anything, every now and the force boot it via reset button. If you can force a kernel panic, the tablet will reset itself to factory.

    If it says reset, then yes each tablet has them, some on back some on side. Just depends on tablet.

    I have had this problem, and I know how to fix it!! Press the reset button on the back of the tablet and immediately hold the big silver button on the front until a screen with lots of selections come up. Use the Volume up/down buttons to scroll and highlight "Factory reset" or something similar. Once highlighted, press the big silver button. The tablet will delete everything. This may take a little while. After done, it should boot! Please reply telling if it works or not!

    Factory reset doesn't help when the OP deleted apparently critical files from the system directory.
