    I have successfully rooted the Kyros 7125 and here is a simple HOWTO. This HOWTO assumes you have a working adb. This tarball uses the latest su and Superuser.apk files from the Android SU site.

    Download and extract root-kyros-7125.tgz
    Code:
    [gdanko@dolemite ~]$ cd root kyros-7125
    [gdanko@dolemite root-kyros-7125]$ adb push su /data/local/tmp/
    [gdanko@dolemite root-kyros-7125]$ adb push busybox /data/local/tmp/
    [gdanko@dolemite root-kyros-7125]$ adb push zergRush /data/local/tmp/
    [gdanko@dolemite root-kyros-7125]$ adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/tmp/zergRush
    [gdanko@dolemite root-kyros-7125]$ adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/tmp/busybox
    [gdanko@dolemite root-kyros-7125]$ adb shell
    shell prompt should be a "$"
    Code:
    $ /data/local/tmp/zergRush
    
    you will be kicked out of the shell
    Code:
    [gdanko@dolemite root-kyros-7125]$ adb shell
    
    shell prompt should now be a "#". you are temp rooted
    Code:
    # mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock2 /system
    # /data/local/tmp/busybox cp /data/local/tmp/su /system/xbin/
    # /data/local/tmp/busybox cp /data/local/tmp/busybox /system/xbin/
    # chown 0:0 /system/xbin/su
    # chown 0:0 /system/xbin/busybox
    # chmod 6755 /system/xbin/su
    # chmod 4755 /system/xbin/busybox
    # ln -s /system/xbin/su /system/bin/su
    
    Type exit a couple of times to get back to your computer's shell
    Code:
    [gdanko@dolemite root-kyros-7125]$ adb install Superuser.apk
    [gdanko@dolemite root-kyros-7125]$ adb reboot
    
    Congratulations. You now have permanent root on the Coby Kyros 7125

    Huh? If you got CWM working it's a simple matter of flashing the Superuser package from androidsu.com, isn't it??

    I don't use cwm this is similar to the method that I use. It gives adb administrator privileges.

    Is there another way to get this information since they took megaupload away now?

    Hopefully the OP author will come back and host the file somewhere else...

    In the meantime, you can get the files somewhere else, probably they are included in latest SOC (SuperOneClick).
