    How to root the Coby Mid7024-4g

    You will need:

    Working ADB
    Android USB
    psneuter, busybox, su
    I downloaded SuperoneClick version 1.7 by ShortFuse over at XDA Forums. The folder contains most of what you will need. The actual program however will not work with the 7024.
    I downloaded Droid Explorer and installed it to use the USB drivers included.
    Although SuperoneClick comes with 3 versions of su I was not sure which one to use so I downloaded su
    I used a netbook with Win XP My 64 bit laptop would not connect to the tablet.

    1: Run adb commands from SuperoneClick directory using windows cmd
    2: Push su, busybox, and psneuter to your tablet. The only RW folder I could fine was /etc/ so I used that.

    adb push su /etc/
    adb push busybox /etc/
    adb push psneuter /etc/
    3: chmod busybox and psneuter
    adb shell chmod 777 /etc/psneuter
    adb shell chmod 777 /etc/busybox
    4: Now for root
    adb shell
    Screen shows $
    /etc/psneuter
    Screen shows # You now have root
    5: Now remount system RW
    adb shell
    mount -o rw,remount/system
    /etc/busybox cp /etc/su /system/xbin/su
    chown 0:0 /system/xbin/su
    chmod 6755 /system/xbin/su
    ln -s /system/xbin/su /system/bin/su
    6: Reboot you are now rooted

    Warning! This worked for me and so far there has been no problems. That does not mean it will work for you or you will have no problems. I read a lot and asked a lot of questions to do this. I am in no way an expert nor do I know much about Android or Linux. Just ask my wife. Also I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night so.............. Anyways if you mess up, it's not my fault.

    Wow! good job with this. What are the chances of this working with the 8024. I would think it would as it seems the only difference is the size of the screen?

    Got to be in step 5 check your spaces, Rage files size was really small. It didn't look right to me so I never tried it manually. Also, I downloaded Su. I could not decide which Su in SuperoneClick to use.

    Hi. Sorry, I am totally new to Android (but not Linux).

    I don't know what any of the stuff under "You will need" is. Would it be possible to add links or clarification?

    Are there any must-reads before I even embark on this project?

    I don't understand why I can't get Marketplace apps in the first place, seems like that should be out of the box.

    Thanks in advance,

    - John

    after alot of trial and error I finally got rooted here is the code I used.

    adb push su /etc/
    adb push busybox /etc/
    adb push psneuter /etc/

    adb shell chmod 777 /etc/su
    adb shell chmod 777 /etc/busybox
    adb shell chmod 777 /etc/psneuter

    adb shell
    $/etc/psneuter

    adb shell
    #mount -o rw,remount/system
    #cp /etc/su /system/bin/su
    #cp /etc/busybox /system/bin/busybox
    #cp /etc/su /system/xbin/su
    #cp /etc/busybox /system/xbin/busybox
    #chown 0:0 /system/bin/su
    #chmod 6755 /system/bin/su

    now to work on android market and google apps.
