    Tablet / Device:
    Coby 1125 / Kindle Fire / Samsung Captivate
    Download file from here


    Copy entire 1125.zip folder to desktop

    Extract 1125.zip to desktop

    Install PdaNetA4170.exe driver ( This should allow you to transfer files with Fastboot )

    This is Version 4.17 installer for Windows 8/7/Vista/XP (both 32/64bit)

    Extract CWM recovery img_1125 folder to desktop by itself ( Do not remove any files from this folder )

    Move zip files from zips folder to micro sd card and insert sd into tablet ( leave these in zip format !! )




    Also move apks from apks folder to MicroSD card


    Google_Play_serv.ices-signe.d .apk




    market-helper-2.0-beta.apk (this will allow spoofing of market for not compatible apps)

    Open cmd window

    ( menu , run , when window opens , enter “cmd” without quotes )

    Cd to directory

    ie ,

    type in window

    cd desktop , ( enter )

    cd CWM recovery img_1125 ( enter )

    Now place 1125 into fastboot mode , power ( or reset button ) and volume down , tablet will show fastboot mode in lower left corner

    Plug in usb cable to pc and tablet

    Then in cmd prompt type

    fastboot boot recovery.img ( enter )

    It will show some stuff , flash ok and done ok

    Tablet should boot to CWM give it a moment to do so ( You will see CWM Recovery Top hat and such )

    Volume up is up , Volume down is down , Home ( Silver Button ) is select

    Go to and select flash zip from sd card

    This will pull up menu of following zip files

    Flash each zip file




    Select reboot

    Tablet will boot ,again give it a moment ( You will see Coby and then Android splash screen )

    Select language from first screen ( as it will be in Dutch ), finish setup of tablet

    Open ES File Explorer , go to tools setting in ES File Explorer and select

    “Root Explorer” to on , allow when Super User prompt shows , this will prove SU is installed and working

    Open ES File Explorer , Select sdcard top right , Select storage

    Install Google_Play_serv.ices-signe.d .apk ( To sync Play Store )

    Install Busybox.apk

    Install Link2sd.apk

    Install Uni-init+v1.0.apk

    Open Uni-init+v1.0.apk , install intd support

    ( you will need busybox installed first for this to work )

    You now have working Play Store , Superuser and Android 4.1 with Intd support

    For Extended memory ,( You need this )

    Increase Internal Memory by Link2SD : Min 2 GB microSD

    In order to add memory to Coby 1125, your micro SD card used for install will need to be formatted

    Copy all files you wish to keep from micro SD to desktop as it will be wiped

    • Backup all your files on memory card.
    • Go into the Recovery Mode ( as above , fastboot boot recovery.img ) ( Your operating system will be fine )
    • Make a nandroid backup at this time
    • Select “Advanced”, and then choose “Partition SD Card”.
    • Then Choose your size ( if you have a 2GB Memory Card, choose 512 MB, and if you have a 4 GB Memory card, you can choose 1024 MB, ext ).
    • Select 0 Swap.
    • Wait for the process to finish, and then select Reboot
    You’ve just made a partition on your memory card, and its ready to use.

    Now follow the steps below for Link2SD

    • Open Link2SD. You will be prompted to choose between ext2,ext3,ext4 and FAT32.
    • Choose ext2

    • Select OK ,
    • It will then say, “Mount Script Created”.
    • Now you Reboot your Tablet
    • Open Link2SD again, if any message does not appear ,it means you succeeded.
    • Go to Link2SD > Setting( far right top icon ) scroll down > Check the autolink. (to automatically move apps upon installation).
    If you already have some apps listed , select “create link” ( be sure to check the files: app, dalvic-cache, and library files).

    Move to SD option only moves app to SD it does not link them

    Now to check the memory, select “Storage Info” . this will be showing you up the current status of your internal memory.

    You should see as below SD Card 2nd Part


    To move a system App you can long press App , it will pull up menu , select convert to user App let it do its thing

    Select App again and it will open option to create link as installed user apps do

    So far I have moved Calculator , VPN , Music FX , ES File Explorer and Sound Recorder with no issue

    Use Link2Sd and (long press) on SystemUpdate.apk ( /system/app/SystemUpdate.apk ) and freeze app.

    This will stop System Update from happening at random moments or on reboot

    There is no Update to install though the System thinks so (without freezing it will continue to show updates available)
