    I know this is old technology but it still works and I'm trying to update it and give it to my grand daughter.

    I want to be able to download and read e books from Kindle and Nook.

    I have spent the past 4 hours going to dead end links, tips that dont work and trying to root the Coby so that I might be able to make it work.

    One link that I was directed to was ATZ. That site is a nightmare, hard to navigate, get info, even after you register you are still not granted access. He (Tipster) claims that he has a way to easily root your Coby via his bulldog whatever, it only cost you $10.50, but you still dont know how it is done and if you would even want to try it. He dosent state how its done, is it a hardware modification or software rom burn, who knows

    I was then directed to Amazon for a Kindle reader application for Android. Well after trying to download the app, I could not, and then found out it was for phones (I read one guy's post saying that it worked great for his 7015A). That was a hour wasted.

    All I want to do I make this Coby 7015A read books from other sources.

    Am I over looking something that should not this hard to do:rolleyes:

    Anyone have any ideas:confused:

    I found this Youtube video that goes over the rooting of a 7015A.

    Seems pretty simple to do.



    Is this what I want to do to get a Kindle or Nook reader to work?
