I posted my "Ultimate How to Guide" on XDA-Developers and tipstir.the-talk.net, but thought you might benefit from it here as well. This guide is written for new users who have NO experience with the Android OS or this device. I do not take credit for the patches/fixes. I am just documenting the process to make it easier for new Kyros tablet users. Intro Steps 1. Put your device in USB Debugging mode. From the main menu, press Settings, Applications, make sure Unknown sources is checked. Press Development,and make sure that USB Debugging is enabled. 2. Turn on your WIFI by going to Settings, Wireless & Networks, check WIFI,and then Wi-Fi settings. Select your Wi-Fi access point. 3. Open AppsLib,press the search hour glass icon,and type File Manager and press Search. I like the File Manager by mmaapp. Install it. Close AppsLib Rooting your Tablet By rooting, what they mean is that you will have full control over all of the files and folders on your tablet. This is a good and a bad thing. It is good because we can add programs. It is also bad because you can delete files that you shouldnt meaning you could kill your tablet if you mess around. 1. From your PC, download z4Root and copy it to your micro SD card. Z4Root can be found here: [APP] z4root - xda-developers 2. Put the sd card in your Kyros, and open File Manager. 3. In File Manager, Press SD card, then press z4root.x.x.x.apk (x indicates the version number), and press install. 4. Press Open 5. Z4Root will open. Press Permanent Root. Once it is done rooting, it will reboot your Kyros. Installing the Windows software and ADB drivers 1. Download and install The Java Development Kit 6here (you will need to register on their site first): https://cds.sun.com/is-bin/INTERSHO...ProductRef=jdk-6u22-oth-JPR@CDS-CDS_Developer 2. Download and unzip the android-sdk-r07-windows.zip file to the C: drive on your computer. Android SDK | Android Developers 3. Go to the android-sdk-windows folder that you unzipped 4. Launch SDKManager.exe 5. Under choose which package to install, click accept all. As a part of what it is downloading, it will download the Android USB drivers. This part will probably take like 30 minutes or more to complete. 6. Once the download is done, close the SDK Manager. 7. You should now see a folder called usb_driver. Open that folder. 8. You will see a file called android_winusb.inf. Open that file in notepad. --- Alternatively you can just download an android_winusb.inf file with all of the modifications already done here: rapidshare.com android_winusb.inf --- You would then just copy over the original android_winusb.inf file in your \android-sdk-windows\usb_driver folder. --- Once the file is over written, skip to step 12 9. Right underneath the section labeled [Google.NTx86] paste in the following: %SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_18D1&PID_DEED Code: %CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_18D1&PID_DEED&MI_01 ; Android Eclair %SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0C01 %CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0C02&MI_01 %SingleBootLoaderInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0FFF 10. Right underneath the section labeled [Google.NTamd64] paste in the following: Code: %SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_18D1&PID_DEED %CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_18D1&PID_DEED&MI_01 ---- Note --- Thanks goes to phygman at XDA-Developers and lschroeder at tipster.the-talk.net for the code here to get the ADB driver working in XP 11. Save the changes in the android_winusb.inf file 12. Plug in your Kyros device. Windows will still not find the driver for the device, but go into the Device manager, and select AndroidEclair, and update driver, browse my computer, let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer. 13. Click "Have Disk" and browse to the c:\android-sdk-windows\usb_driver folder. Double click on android_winusb.inf. 14. Select Android ADB Interface. 15. It will then come up with some messages about this is unsigned or something, are you sure you want to do this, click yes or continue. Then it will install the driver and detect the kyros. Installing ClockworkMod Recovery to back up your Kyros. 1. On your pc, download recovery.img and place it on the root folder of your sd card (\) Recovery.img (be sure to choose the correct one!) for the... MID7015: here MID7005: here 2. Put the sd card back into the tablet and then plug the usb cable into the tablet, and then your pc. Make sure your tablet is powered on. 3. Open the Command Prompt in windows (cmd.exe) 4. Go to the android-sdk-windows\tools folder. Since I placed the android-sdk-windows folder on the root of my c drive, I typed cd\android-sdk-windows\tools and pressed enter. 5. Type adb shell and press enter. Code: adb shell 6. Type su and press enter. (wait for the hash # symbol to appear) Code: su 7. Type flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img and press enter. (where /sdcard/ is the location of your sdcard mounted onto the device) Code: [B]flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img[/B] 8. Press and hold the CTRL button, then press C. This will return you back to the windows prompt. 9. Type adb reboot recovery and press enter. Code: [B]adb reboot recovery[/B] 10. Your Kyros tablet will reboot. Clockwork Mod Recovery will then load. When Navigating through ClockworkMod Recovery, here are the keys: Home is down Menu is select Back is back 11. Press the Home button until backup and restore is highlighted and press Menu. 12. Backup should already be selected. Press Menu. 13. It will now do a complete system backup. This is ESSENTIAL as it is VERY easy to play around and break your Kyros to the point that it is useless. 14. It will say Backup complete once the backup is done. 15. Reboot system now should be highlighted. Press Menu to reboot. Installing Google Marketplace 1. Remove your sd card and put it back in your pc. Download the file gapps-passion-EPE54B-signed.zip and place it on the root of your sd card (\). The file can be downloaded here: mediafire.com mjmmfmm0jez 2. Connect the usb cable to the Kyros and the pc. 3. Put the sd card back into the tablet and then plug the usb cable into the tablet, and then your pc. Make sure your tablet is powered on. 4. Open the Command Prompt in windows (cmd.exe) 5. Go to the android-sdk-windows\tools folder. Since I placed the android-sdk-windows folder on the root of my c drive, I typed cd\android-sdk-windows\tools and pressed enter. 6. Type adb reboot recovery and press enter. 7. It will boot into the ClockworkMod Recovery menu. 8. Press Home until install zip from sd card is selected and press menu. 9. Press Home until choose zip from sd card is selected and press menu. 10. Press Home until gapps-passion-EPE54B-signed.zip is selected and press Menu. 11. Press Home until Yes Install gapps-passion-EPE54B-signed.zip is selected and press Menu. 12. It will then install the Google Market. 13. Once the install is done, it will say Install from sd card complete. 14. Press the back button 15. Reboot system now should be highlighted. Press Menu. 16. It will reboot the Kyros. You will see a Wizard appear. Go through the Wizard 17. You now have the Android Marketplace installed on your Kyros. I would also recommend installing the AppBrain app from the Google Market. It gives you the ability to install more apps then just the Google Market alone. Enjoy!
