    This is basically the same as this:
    http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...13-cfw-mid7024-based-alldro2-gingerbread.html

    Except that it runs from an external SD card without installing anything to your tablet.

    Requirements:
    -card reader
    -4GB microSD card

    Instructions:

    Linux:
    You can decompress and write the image at the same time with a command like:
    Code:
    gunzip -c CFW_alldro2_2.3-0.1_live.img.gz > /dev/sdX
    
    Windows (not tested):
    -Decompress file with 7zip or WinRAR (note, the decompressed file will be about 4GB since it's an exact image of a 4GB sdcard)
    -Write the image to your sdcard using the Win32 image writer
    http://launchpad.net/win32-image-writer/trunk/0.3/+download/win32diskimager-RELEASE-0.3-r27-binary.zip

    To boot the firmware:
    -Insert the microSD
    -Turn on the power while holding the HOME button

    You can revive a 1024 Kyros hardbrick?

    No, this won't revive a hard brick, since it requires a working bootloader in the NAND
