    Hi guys. I have my 7024 with the OFM (Original Firmware) Android 2.2, but a have problem:

    1) the tablet when booting, it flashes COBY and the unit shuts off.
    2) Continuously rebooting.

    I install the original Coby Update, They say "This update will fix continuously rebooting" well i think it increased rebooting -.-
    Before update, i used to have those rebooting perhaps 1 every 3 or 4 days. Now the tablet reboot at least 2 times per day!! It is so annoying!! :mad:

    And it is not only that, sometimes the tablet turn off by it self when i am use it, then, i turn on; and all my apps do not works!! So i have to reinstall all my apps!!

    I do not know what to do. Anyone have or had this same problem? How do i fix it?

    I was thinking in try another ROM, but honestly i don't know how to install one. I was reading some posts here and they told about "hard brick" in Kyros... I don't want my tablet dies!

    If the solution is change ROM, can anyone of you please show me some tutorial, how i do start?

    I was reading this post http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...13-cfw-mid7024-based-alldro2-gingerbread.html
    From steev, i would like to try, but i don't know where i start.... :s

    Thanks a lot for help you can give me!

    I got three Coby Tablets and a Brick aint one.
    I would have sent it back the first week of having it. Flash it with the OFW from Coby and contact tech support for an RMA.

    Just my 4cents ( inflation)

    Yes, return it if you can and it's still under warranty. My first MID1024 did the same, I ended with a brick and had no choice but return it.

    I was reading at the Coby homepage and they say tablets has 3 months warranty... I buy my almost 2 months ago in MercadoLibre (the Latin American Ebay). Coby don't has support in my country... should i call to the North American Coby support centre?

    If you don't have a receipt from a store, then I think they will hardly accept it... :(

    Besides the receipt to prove that it's under the 3mo warranty, you have to send it to them and pay for the return, so I think you may want to try to exchange it with whoever sold it to you.

    I have the receipt that gave me the MercadoLibre seller from his store (A normal store, don't have nothing to do with Coby)... it will be enough to Coby Support center?
    I am going to try with the ML seller.... Thanks!

    Try your local seller first if they will replace/repair your tablet.

    Hi nathanhaloreach,

    Welcome to the board, I'm glad you could join us here. Did it always do this or did you try to apply some update or something that went wrong?

    Backup whatever data you want to save then restart your tablet with no card in the external slot while holding the home button (silver one). You should see a message that no update was found and if press VolumeUp button it will init (erase) the internal SD card. It will work like a factory reset. If you haven't rooted and/or messed with the system files then it should fix your problem. If it doesn't, then you need to re-install the original firmware from Coby's website. If you still have problems after this, then either you have a bad internal microSD or a defective device.
