    Coby never bothered with firmware updates except for some ancient Generation 1 models. On top of that Coby has been out of business now for over four years. Since there are no firmware updates you can forget about updating the tablet. It's stuck on Android 4.0.3.

    Seriously, I shouldn't have to rewrite your post in order to be able to read it, so please learn to create proper sentences. It's very hard to parse your posts without them.

    There are no other options. The 7048 has what we refer to as a "nand lock". Attempting to modify the tablet by installing a custom recovery, custom boot.img, or custom ROM will trip the nand lock. When the nand lock is tripped, the tablet's internal storage is permanently set to read only mode. Rooting doesn't trigger the nand lock, though attempting to install the Google apps package may trip it.

    In any case, updated versions of Android are out of the question. No custom ROMs exist, and no factory restore images were ever made. To be totally honest, the device couldn't handle them anyway due to the single core processor and the 1GB of RAM. You should have the Amazon Appstore available for the tablet, which you can use to get your apps. If not, you can download it by accessing Amazon.com on the tablet browser.
