    Hi all,

    recently I was going to change my fonts with font installer app but on reboot got stuck on boot screen meaning the android logo after the Coby logo.
    so when my tablet was working good I rooted it using the sticky post here. then installed CWM succesfully also made backups and dump. But now that I have this problem, I can't seem to reboot into recovery mode. hold down power + vol+ & back still nothing. And before installing font installer app I also made a backup.

    so if someone can help me out here would be great

    Ricky

    Unless you can get into CWM, there's no way to break out of the boot loop. Try other key combos such as power, volume - and back, or power and a volume key without back.

    If you have adb setup, use adb to reboot into recovery.

    So I tried many combo's still trying randomly, but with nothing.

    @vampirefo
    yes I have adb setup, but it doesn't find the device:( , or maybe I'm doing something wrong.

    But this is rare cos the key combination I used was 'back' + 'vol+' then 'power' and when the coby logo came I just let it lay. thenn the CWM recovery prompt! My Luck!.

    And now doing same combination but CWM doesn't appear strange. but the good news is Tab is working til now. I gotta find how to properly go into CWM recovery?

    make sure you have debugging enabled, and get adb working, that way you could adb to recovery if needed.

    Yeh for now on debugging will stay on for sure man. oke good to know that adb could also get it recovered with debugging on, cos previously it was off.
    Got adb working great now! I really appreciate it you guys 've been a great help here. So now I'm armed :)

    well first I think you should take a deep breath try different key combinations
    look here http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/coby-generation-3/42871-recovery-mid8042.html#post278752

    Have you installed adb setup, or let's say did you let on USB debugging?


    These didn't work for me then I tried like this
    well it seems that you have to have luck getting that 1/1000000 to boot into recovery! I would say keep on trying !

    Hi. I also have a Coby Kyros 8042. It is rooted but I don't have CW installed nor adb debugging on. Last night I installed busybox and when I reboot, it is now stuck in bootloop. What can I do?

    well what I can say and have learned is that your big problem is you have no CW installed nor adb debugging on! stuck on a bootloop man your first aid was CW. And I'm not sure if livesuite can help you please confirm with mods around here.

    Stick a fork in your tablet, because it's done. Without USB Debugging turned on there's no way to access the tablet. Without ClockworkMod installed there's no way to access the various partitions to fix this.

    I don't believe using LiveSuite will be able to resolve this issue, since the issue isn't one of partitions but apparently incorrect file permissions.
