    I used the vieo down below as a guide, as I am sur a lot of people have. But I noticed that you could see the little hole in the case where he used the compass point to sart the clips. I check out the case and ended up using a guitar pick to sart on the left hand side of the empty microsd slot. There is a clip right the and it popped easily, and the whole side popped with it down to the left corner. The corners are a little stiff but I just worked gently from that corner clockwise. It took about 5 minutes to have it open and my test card inside. I tested both my 32GB Class 4 and my 16GB Class 6 with CFW GingerLF EVO and both worked perfect. I ended up using the 16GB since it was a little faster.

    The vids not mine it's just one going around but I just found and easier way. There really isn't anything to it. You can buy the tools which include two pick, two plastic pry tool, and a couple screwdrivers on amazon for $4 plus shipping. If it's new just wait a little while to let some of the shiny wear off. LOL When you open it, face down with the battery on the right. The microsd is on the lower left corner under some tape. you need to take the tape off carefully because you will need to re-use it.

    I've always wondered if a class 10 internal card would make some difference in the speed up. Did you run any benchmark test comparing both of the microsd ?

    I only did a class 6 and when I ran CaffeineMark and Quadrant it was hard to say the difference was from the card or just normal variance. After a few tests I got an average of 200pts more in CM and about 125 in Quadrant, but that is also with a clean ROM. I think for them to take advantage of Class 10 they have to be ver 3.0 compliant and I don't know if they are. I can say on my Flytouch going from Class 2 to Class 4, then to Class 10 you could see differences playing videos. The background on wide shot with a lot of action got much better.

    Can I do this internal sdcard change on my coby 7024 too? Any ideas or links on how to do it?

    Do as you see in the video. It's shows 1024, but you can do the same in all xx24 line, and god bless coby for that.

    I'm on the verge of doing that procedure to expand the internal memory

    4GB is just not enough. Looks easy to do on the video. What happens after I do it is what I'm afraid of, what's the next step? Re-install my current rom?

    I have heard it is possible on all xx24. I know for sure you can on the 8024 and 1024. Since they keep the designs so similar I would assume it on the 7024 too.

    Yep just place your favorite rom on the external microsd and boot.

    Thanks Kairnage, I'll try to do it and hopefully it would work.

    Finally got the courage to open up the device to change the internal sdcard. Slowly did it, but still created some scratches but it's not that bad as long as it was a successful. For those curious, the sdcard is close to the HDMI port. Didn't expect to see my board to say MID 7025 but still okay, it's just the board, I think. Happy that I was able to do it. Thanks.

    Just slow and take your time. If you haven't already order one of the kits from Amazon to open it.

    Is this possable with any other kyros models or just the xx24 series?

    I know X022 and 1125 doesn't have it, other than that I don't know.

    Telechips based devices like 7022 and 8125/1125 seem to have a bigger NAND and no internal SD.
