I've been trying to download Google Chrome as my browser.
Glad you joined us here!
How are you trying to download it? It should be done through the Play Store (formerly the Android Market)
Hi kzlady, congratulations on your new Coby MID8042 and welcome to the forum. I'm moving your thread to the Coby Generation 3 forum for you, where more people with that tablet are likely to join the discussion and try to help you. Good luck!
Hi, i assume your tablet is stock, so you need to install the CUSTOM ROM which has google apps and of course google play (formerly android market), here's the link [ROM] Custom ROM for Coby Kyros 8042 - Rooted, Google Apps, Google Play, i recommend you load the rom, cause an android device without android market, gmail, etc.. is pretty useless, if you need any help, just write.
I just bought this model coby 8042, and this is my first tablet. I do have an Iphone, and this is so much different. I feel like throwing this thing out the window. I pulled up this thread on my tablet and i tried clicking on the links above to download the livesuite and the other link and I am not having any luck. All I have on this stupid thing to get apps is getjar, which is a joke. I want to be able to purchase good apps, and have a facebook app, and netflix...is this even possible. I am starting to dread my purchase. Any help would be much appreciated.
How can I download the android market on coby kyros 8042
If you want Google apps, you can do one of two things:
Install a custom ROM, as already mentioned.
Follow the directions given in the http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/coby-generation-3-development/45321-development-index.html thread to root the tablet, install the custom recovery image, and then install the Google Apps themselves.
But, before you attempt to do this, make a backup of your stock ROM.
