    Thanks, this worked great for me. I just renamed su-v3 to su and followed the instructions. My reasoning for root was so I could find the wap_supplicant.conf so I could enable ADHOC support but unfortunately was unable to get it to work like I did on the 7015.

    BTW, I have an 8024. I was not able to find a wpa_supplicant.conf in the /data/etc/wifi/ directory but was able to find 2 identcal copies located in /etc/wifi/ and /system/etc/wifi/ but after modifying both (which clearly had my most recent AP's) and rebooting, the same hack that worked on the 7015 does not work on this device. Maybe there is another wpa_supplicant.conf that I need to find. *shrugs*

    In the mean time, I'm pretty content at the moment seeing as I received this tablet yesterday (from a Floridina Ebay seller for $150 slightly used) but I have already got the device rooted (thanks again), latest android market, latest flash 10.3 and the latest youtube app all working. This one last piece would close the deal until some mods are released. It sure would be nice to be able to connect to mt DROIDX while on the road rather than finding some free hotspot somewhere.

    Keep up the good work guys!

    Pwned. I had to change the procedure ever so slightly on my 7024. Heck knows why, may be cause my host is Ubuntu Jaunty. Here is what I did:

    Get su from xda-developers (su-2.3.6.1-ef-signed.zip) unzip and get the su out of it
    Get SuperOneClick from shortfuse.org and unpack it. Do not try to run it - it sucks
    Install Superuser.apk from the market or from the sd card.

    In the ADB folder for SuperOneClick run chmod 777 adblinux

    adblinux push su /etc/ (use su from the su-2.3.6.1)
    adblinux push busybox /etc/
    adblinux push psneuter /etc/
    adblinux shell chmod 777 /etc/su
    adblinux shell chmod 777 /etc/busybox
    adblinux shell chmod 777 /etc/psneuter
    adblinux shell
    $/etc/psneuter
    adblinux shell
    #cp /etc/su /system/xbin/su
    #cp /etc/busybox /system/xbin/busybox
    #ln -s /system/xbin/su /system/bin/su
    #ln -s /system/xbin/busybox /system/bin/busybox
    #cp /etc/busybox /system/xbin/busybox
    #chown 0:0 /system/bin/su
    #chmod 6755 /system/bin/su
    Reboot the device
    Test
    adblinux shell
    $ su
    The Superuser app should prompt you on the tablet for giving su su permissions (ironic ha?). say yes and you should be now be dropped to the rootshell.

    Hi everyone, I'm trying to root the MID7024 but I'm stuck in this step:

    What I get is:

    Same as http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...nical/12842-how-root-mid7024-2.html#post76626, but with no success I've tried the "alternate" method posted by mudknot2005. Am I missing something?
    As a side note, I had to restore the entire S.O. by pressing the "menu" button and then volume up at booting.

    Thanks.

    On mine I skipped "mount -o rw,remount/system". /system is already mounted as rw at the / level. /system is just a folder.
    Which leads me to believe there are more than one build being sold as 7024.
    "uname -a" on mine reads
    2.6.32.9 #1555 PREEMPT Tue Apr 12 15:23 2011
    What's yours?

    Hmm...I wish Coby could post the updates on their website.
    Anyhow, try skipping the mount or following the instructions I posted earlier. I've discovered that my Kyros had the original "mount ro" commented out in the init.rc.

    I found an even more trivial set of commands to get your 7024 rooted. It probably can not get any simpler for manual rooting.

    1. Get su and Superuser.apk from [APP] Superuser 2.3.6.1 - Now on the Market [2010-09-05] - xda-developers (su-2.3.6.1-ef-signed.zip)
    2. Get psneuter and adb/adblinux from SuperOneClick (SuperOneClick | shortfuse.org)
    3. Run the following for the files you got:
    adb push su /etc/
    adb push psneuter /etc/
    adb install Superuser.apk
    adb shell
    cd etc
    chmod 777 psneuter
    chmod 777 su
    cp /etc/su /system/xbin/su
    chown 0:0 /system/xbin/su
    chmod 6755 /system/xbin/su
    4. Reboot your device. Run
    adb shell
    su
    5. Your 7024 will be prompt you to allow su access. Click allow and you are done.
    Tested on the Apr 12 15:23 2011 firmware.

    So the last post on this thread is almost a month old.
    Just wondering ... without coby releasing the firmware update we're still stuck right?
    What are the current capabilities of hombrew on the 7042?

    Root? (I think manual right?)
    CW?
    ROMS?

    I have the felling I made a bad choice...

    Haven't heard of Any-Brew for any of the X024/X025 models

    Root? (I think manual right?)
    Yep.
    CW?
    ROMS?
    Pretty sure a big NO without access to source from Coby

    Depends on what you paid for it and what you plan on using it for. It's nothing I would suggest for playing games, it's too sluggish and the screen is very unresponsive, unlike the touch keys which are way too sensitive. As far as surfing and playing videos it meets my needs for now but I'm still looking at other tablets. If given the opportunity, I'll sell my 8024 I picked up for $150 and maybe grab the 10.1" viewsonic since the price keeps getting closer to $200 and the display is capacitive. I really want to play with the Toshiba one...but think tablets need at least a dual core 1.2Ghz+ and the Android OS still needs more polishing for mainstream enterprise professionals to use.

    Since im just using my 7024 for internet browsing, watching videos and playing games..i think im happy with this device.

    I'm actually using a different ROM(base on Haipad M7) now although i have to modify it a little bit base on the information from this thread http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...ate-coby-kyros-7024-gingerbread-firmware.html

    Thanks guys.
    pingram3541 I agree is all a matter of Pirce/features. I have to say that after being able to calibrate correctly and get the google apps working a lot has changed :) I'm happy with it. I originally bought to read ebooks and that's something that this tablet does pretty well.

    I created a post "All you need to know" with a little summary of everything I learned here.

    After getting the Android market going one thing I notice is that certain apps after update them they will stop working Aldiko and Youtube.

    Any ideas with those?
