    Hello, I'm Wishdream.
    I'm an owner of the new Coby Kyros MID7038-4 model.
    I need help on getting to root this.

    Now, the HUGE problem is... it's not dictated as a Gen 3 nor a Gen 4 model.
    Infact, it doesn't have the indicated processor models said around here and I hope this new found information will help.

    Apparently, it is not a Telechip Cortex A5, nor a Allwinner or Vimicro Cortex A8.
    It's a Rockchip Cortex A9 1GHz Single Core. So could not tell me to use those methods used in the *0*8 models.
    What is more interesting, it is not rooted and actually now has a supporting Google Play Store.
    The Android version of this is also Android 4.1.1 Jellybean and not Android 4.0 Ice Cream.

    System Updates do not contain Update from USB.
    It also has a Rockchip System Updates that detects an update.zip file.

    I tried rooting with both methods and simply does not work.

    Accessing the Recovery Menu with this model is by:
    1. Press Vol+ and Power buttons until the word COBY appear on the screen.
    2. Keep holding Vol+ and release the Power button.
    3. When the lying Android logo appears, release both buttons.
    4. Hold the Power button then tap the Vol+ button and the recovery menu should appear.
    I believe this should help update and might make some progress on the 7038 model and I hope this information will help for progress. Now if I do get to root this model we have, I shall provide a ROM and an Image to help the forums.

    P.S. I'm assuming this model is either an RK2926 or an RK2928 for the Processor...

    Thank You.

    Oh nevermind, thanks anyway. Please close this thread now.
    I figured out to ROOT it myself.

    Thanks.
