    This is not 100% right for this thread, but I'm sure someone here can answer my question. My MID 7024 has become erratic with a lot of apps stopping at startup. It seemed to me that reloading the firmware was as good a place as any to start.

    I got it from Coby's site along with the instructions PDF. So far so good.

    When, however, as the instruction sheet states, I press the HOME and POWER buttons at once, one of three things happens:

    1. I get the previous app screen (like when you press the HOME)

    2. The power goes off (like holding down the POWER button

    3. Nothing

    Did I miss something? How do I get the firmware reload to start? TIA.

    Copy the firmware files to a microSD card the insert it in the external slot of the tablet while it's powered off, then turn it on while holding the home button (silver one). Release buttons as soon as you see some text on screen.

    That worked. Thanks - I never would have gotten that from the way their instructions were worded.

    Thanks for the tip!

    There was an error in res/xml/settings.xml

    This line:
    Code:
            <intent android:action="android.intent.action.MAIN" android:targetClass="com.android.settings.VoiceInputOutputSettings" />
    
    Should be:
    Code:
            <intent [B]android:targetPackage="com.android.settings"[/B] android:action="android.intent.action.MAIN"  android:targetClass="com.android.settings.VoiceInputOutputSettings"  />
    
    I meant to fix it earlier, but forgot all about it until I noticed the bug today in my alldro2 firmware.

    Actually I like the way it works with the bug, I can select some hidden settings like Quick Launch, which is missing in this version of Gingerbread for some reason. I use it to disable the B button.

    Hey everyone, just wanted to say that you are followed in Croatia also. I installed pro 3.1.1. mod version on my Coby and i worked like a charm but mi HDMI did not respond. Don't know why because i am not very good at all this coding and all. I will bi installing other roms, until my Cobys HDMI starts to work. Thanks for the great work and all the roms!

    cheers!

    I have v1.0, but it seems to me that graphics is a bit off on this rom.. a bit grainy. Does it work for you and others well? Maybe i am just to much of a perfectionist.. :)
    Is that the "latest" rom?

    P.S. And the HDMI did not work.. I am beginning to think that maybe my TV doesn't support my Coby or something..

    I have tried it once again and it works ok now.. I think that the wallpaper is just a bit grainy. When I tried to use youtube, browsing and other it worked fine and the picture was great. I will stick to this one until you guys pop up something new.

    Thanks Steev

    I am newbies to this. Currently, my MID7024 would only power up and display "COBY" and went off, leaving only menu button lights on. I've read the forum and noted that this new update may help me to revive my 7024. But after I follow all the instruction within the official PDF, my MID7024 seems to be updating, but halted.. Following is the screen that it has stay on for hours without any progress

    Update bootloader...
    Done
    Update kernel...
    Done
    Update recovery...
    Done
    Update logo...
    Done
    Update File System...

    Then the 7024 just stay as such for hours. Initially I thought the update will take long time, but even after 24 hours staying on also the same. I figured there must be something wrong. Can any good samaritans help me??

    did u try to reformat your microsd? and theres a custom rom here for 7024, if u like u can try it. but before u try the custom rom, try to reformat your microsd and then download the original firmware from coby and install it again. maybe you've got a corrupted rom.

    here look at the downloads column:

    Hi mharckk
    Yes, I've performed Quick Format from Windows on the External MicroSD that I've just bought (brand new). Upon copying all 13 files from the 7024 Firmware content to MicroSD, I eject it out and insert it into MID7024. Then I press Power On + Menu (Silver Button) together, and the result is as specified above. I've even tried the custom rom and result is still the same. Do I need to pry open the MID7024 and remove the internal MicroSD first before the whole upgrade and revive thingy could work?

    Hi, try reformatting your microsd using sdformatter from sdcard.org, I had the same problem before using windows formatter.
