    Hi

    Anyone got a copy of the 1126 specific update?

    The 1125 version isn't working, I have no backup, and so cant even boot the tablet to download the rom :(

    It looks like Coby Germany may have pulled the plug on the ICS 4.0.3 update. Whether this is temporary or permanent is not known. If you check the link: Consumer Entertainment Products for Home, Office or On the Go! | COBY you will get the message "Due to technical reasons this page is not available."

    Not exactly sure what is going on, but both the US and German websites have changed recently. The German site now only lists the older tablets (7022, 7127, 8127, 8128, 1125, 1125WAN, 1126) that were supported in the 4.0.x update but without the upgrade link. The German website does not yet list the newer models although these are seen in images elsewhere on the site. I expect to see the newer models listed in the near future

    The US site also dropped the older models (leaving only 7022, 7127, 8127, 1125 and 1126) and shows all the newer (7033, 7055, 8042, 9042, 9742, 1042 and 1045) tablet models. Things are shifting...

    -HDMI is now more reliable.
    -Connecting to the PC the tablet can be used as a mass storage device again

    Please post a link. The original link still gives the same message that the page in unavailable.

    Where are you located ?? Is it possible Coby Germany is blocking access to North American IP addresses ?? I will be in Europe in September and plan to bring my MID1126. This would be an opportunity to check.

    Thanks.

    I'm in France.
    I've just went to the same url : Consumer Entertainment Products for Home, Office or On the Go! | COBY

    Anyway, the update process seems to be the same as the old one, so I think you can download the updater (from here : http://coby.upgrade-android.com/apps/UpgradeAndroid.apk) and run it on your tablet.

    Here is the full message from coby germany if you can't read it :

    The link you posted gives the "Due to technical reasons this page is not available. " message. Are you certain you are not looking at a cached page ?

    I have the updater.apk installed. It will be interesting to see if it continues to work.

    Something is happening at Coby... I've put off buying a used 8127 until this is resolved. If I can't update the 8127 to 4.0.3 I'd pass on the older tablet and look for a used 8042 instead.

    Yes, sure. I've cleared cache, cookies, all stuff and I always can see this page.
    Yesterday, this url send me to the homepage of cobygermany but today it's working well. I've went to this url with my mobile phone too and I was able to download the UpgradeAndroid.apk from a link a the end of the page (the one I've posted earlier).

    Actually I now have my 1126 up and running with ICS, Wifi, Touchscreen etc lol.

    I could never boot the tablet before so couldn't go to the german site, but I downloaded the APK and run it in Bluestacks... see the post I just made if this method helps you.

    Fascinating... I'm browsing on a Win7 machine and after clearing my cache I still get the "Due to technical reasons this page is not available. " message. Something is happening.

    Since I have the Updater on my MID1126 I could try to run that but I don't want to wreck my ICS 4.0.3 installation. This might be a good time to pick up an used 8127 and play with that.
