    Custom Firmware for 7024 Base on Official 7024 firmware of Coby!

    ***Please note i customise my firmware base on what i want and how i use my tablet. I am not responsible if something bad happen to your tablet... This is also just a hobby.. please dont be mad at me if you brick your tablet..well if you dont like you can always flash the OFW Firmware.***

    ****Before flashing a new rom...always use Titanium Backup so it will be faster to restore your application after every flash of rom!!!**

    Now Pictures first

    Improve Database IO
    Battery with Percentage
    Font
    Windows action
    Icons
    Bootanimation
    Latest ver of google market

    i forgot the other changes

    This is not yet rooted but easily rootable... i'll leave it up to you if you want to root your tablet.

    Please note if you dont want overclocking replace "u-boot.arg,u-boot.bin,u-boot.sd and setbootargs" with the official u-boot.bin of OFW 7024
    ***I dont know the long term effect of overclocking the cpu...this is a warning!!!***

    That's awesome. Did you work out the issues such as the camera being reversed and part of the screen missing? Is the CPU frequency at 1.15Ghz the default on the official rom? Or did you tweak it somehow?

    Actully stock uboot.bin of official kyros 8024 have to be edited. If your going to use it for 7024 lcd and camera orientation should be change.

    LCD value
    8024 UT08
    7024 UT07
    1024 LP101

    Orientation for camera must be change to X from Y

    For faster cpu im using different boot img for gingerbread.

    If anybody is interested ill post the modified uboot.bin of 8024 to work for 7024.

    Hey flxrms excellent job!
    So, how is the rom behaving? soft and hard buttons working? HDMI output and everything?
    Would you say that we finally have a "stock" (or at least as close as we can get without coby releasing an official update) recovery image?

    And the most important questions of all will you shared your work? :D

    Well maybe just another question. did you change the font type on the rom or is that font the default on the new update?

    Hdmi is working including 3g using the official 8024 rom from cobyusa site.

    The font, battery with percentage, icons and windows behavior i change using the online kitchen.
    The overclock cpu boot img i pulled from the Evo 2.0 gingerbread rom from slateroid im testing yesterday which is really good if you want to try gingerbread. My tablet is really snappy now.

    I will share the modified uboot.bin of the official kyros 8024 firmware so it will work with 7024..

    I opened u-boot.bin in a hex editor and searched for "lcd="

    I found "lcd=ut08gm"
    Should I change that to "lcd=ut07gm"?

    Note: I read /proc/cmdline from the stock rom on my 7024 (requires root) and it seems to use "lcd=ut7gm" instead.

    I saw another boot arg in u-boot.bin, "camrev=y" (camera reverse?)
    Do I change that to "camrev=x"? (or maybe camrev=n?)

    Just want to make sure I understand correctly.

    Thanks

    hey steev yes you are right about
    changing it to

    lcd=ut07gm
    and
    camrev=x

    if you want just the uboot use the one in the stock 7024 rom i made. it is here if you wanna download it
    mid7024.rar

    i did that and i changed the bootlogo to the 7024 one and i changed the mid8024 to mid7024 and i turned on the 3g settings in the init.smdkv210.rc.
    other than that its the stock rom. it worked perfectly on my tablet untill i decided to do the evo mod to overclock but thats another story..lol

    stock uboot.bin of official kyros 8024 can be edited to work with 7024. If your going to use it for 7024 lcd and camera orientation value should be change via hex edit. I have a dmegs of a 1024 tablet and the lcd value is lp101. Im not sure if changing the value at uboot.bin for 1024 will work but if your tablet is brick you might want to try this.

    LCD value
    8024 UT08
    7024 UT07
    1024 LP101

    Orientation for camera must be change to X from Y

    Thanks

    The md5sum of your u-boot.bin matches the one I modified myself, so I guess I did it right :)
