    I've been running ICS 4.0.3 on a MID1126 for almost a month. I did a factory reset to bone stock 2.3.3 settings first, inserted a freshly formatted microSD card and proceeded to download and install the update to 4.0.3. I have almost everything running. I also installed the recent update to 4.0.3. Memory utilization is good (typ. 145 MB vs. 108 MB with 2.3.3) and storage use is better. Google Earth doesn't work but Google Maps does, a version of Android Market works, but not Play Store. Netflix 1.7 or 1.8 won't stream video on screen or thru the HDMI. MX Video player is choppy, so far.

    USB keyboards map better. I haven't gotten the tablet to recognize an external powered HD larger than 32 GB (yet, but ths works on my Acer A500 under 4.0.3) Overall, I'm pretty happy with the upgrade to 4.0.3.

    I did a more straight on aproach, for my mid 1126. I just downloaded the updater from coby germany website installed it and done the update. After that I saw that all my applications (including the Google play store and Google Earth) was still installed except the two mentioned were not working again. After that I decited to repeat the process of installing the gapps. I took the SD card from my phone and put the newest gapps zip file on it (Goo.im Downloads - Browsing gapps). Then i turned my tablet on while pressing the volume down button to enter fastboot mode. Then I installed the gapps from there (i used the MID 1125 recovery image that I found first time when I installed the gapps, after first upgade to ICS) (there is a little bit of cmd prompt tinkerig) . After that I restarted the tablet and now I have fully working gapps on it including Google maps, Google earth, Google play store etc.

    After a first look I can see that coby did some memory and cpu optimization (my tablet is a bit faster :D) also my ui animations are not laggy like before and I do not have wifi connection problems.

    I still can't figure out how to access my usb stick or sd card cuz sci, and sata folders that worked in 2.3.3 doesen't do the job. So if anyone have info about that tell me ;D !! Solved with other file manager (File manager HD) not default manager (with ES manager I couldn't find the way to acces /mnt/).

    Today i've receive a reply from Coby support.

    "Dear Customer,
    thank you for your request:
    Please press the reset button.
    After the device has boot up try the update again.
    The exclamation mark shows you that the download failed and some files for the update are corrupt. To avoid the unit to be completely useless the update was not done.
    Mit freundlichen Grüßen / With best regards

    Even so, this was the solution i've tried for the last twenty times...

    I tried repeatedly to get the update to work (4.0 already installed, then updating to new build). The update would complete, install, then reboot to the Android barf screen (dead OS screen). Resetting would get it back but it would not be updated.

    The only way I got it to work was to restore a backup of 2.3.3, then re-do the update process. It worked, went from build 0013 to build 0025. No obvious improvements.... still issues with all flash and videos, as well as Youtube not able to seek. All of that is working in 2.3.3 so I no longer see any reason to upgrade unless you MUST have the Google apps from 4.0.

    Ok, Good news for those like me that were getting the android with exclamation mark when trying to update with German new update.
    Wincha from the Coby Kyros Free Roms forum, managed to get it working. Go there (link bellow) and follow the procedures. Worked for me.
    Note: First time i got stuck in Coby logo, second time i've use the Cleaner first and then install the update and worked fine, so i advise to use the cleaner first. Everything is done with CWM (install zip from SDCARD option)

    Regards
