    Hi
    I have a Coby 7015 A with Tipsters B7 Honeycomb firmware. The tablet works great and I am happy with it but I hate all the ads that come up. These are most distractive in games and this is why I am writing the question:

    is there any way to block the ads ?

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    I suffered this too for a while. If you do a search on the market for "Ad Free" you should find an app of the same name (the icon is a white square with a red "don't" circle). Ad free will require root/su access and you will need to make sure that it is not killed on startup in any of Tipstr's tweak programs. Once you've installed and set it up you will need to reboot the Kyros for it to take affect. (it won't tell you to but from my observation it doesn't work as well until reboot) I have to tell you, I've been using this app for a couple of months and it really does get rid of 90% of them. Good luck

    That's how "Ad Free" works.
