    isyntax,
    maybe your question should be in a new thread of it's own.
    But since you asked here is my opinion:

    First get a microsd card - you need it for backup/restore
    Do root + clockworkmod (don't do google market yet)
    then do a backup using clockworkmod
    relabel the backup --- "Out of the Box" or something (it will be /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/some.date.thing)
    Then play with AppsLib and toy with apps. take notes of the keeper apps (lot of junk out there)
    Then get back to clockworkmod and try a restore.
    Get comfortable with backups and restores before you go with Google Market or install Watery or HCV9 or Cyanogen etc.
    Then have fearless fun :) --- Google Market, Watery etc
    I have a dozen backups and move the older ones out to the PC.
    I can "restore" to Coby, Watery, HCV9, Cyanogen, Coby+Google Market and more counting date stamp versions. Four months and I'm still in the test and try mode. I still haven't found the "perfect one" but I'm having fun.

    I wish someone would sticky all the builds' threads into one for easy reference. But I just got my Kyros 7015a today and I installed the google apps right after rooting (stock still). About too try Watery, then then HCV9, then cyanogen and play round-robin-roulette till i find the perfect balance. I learned along time ago with My D1 that there just aint never a PERFECT rom.

    Thanks Ridgeland and Kerry. I think I'll get familiar with backup and restore thing first before the experiments like you said Ridge.. I can't wait for my Kyros .___. Thank you guys, keep up the good work.. I hope I learn fast and share skills too like you guys do.

    @edit: Can I transfer back ups made in Kyros to PC? Like the original, pure Coby OS?

    Backups restore from the sdcard, they are just a folder with a few files. Move them back as forth as you like. Rename them too, to keep them labeled with more than just the date. Best to keep backups on the PC in case the sd card dies on you.

    If your Coby is on the way, it's doubtful you need the update. I have watery 1.1 and the graphics fix:

    Rooted with z4 first. Its been very stable.

    I have a problem with ClockworkMod when ever i try to install ClockworkMod recovery it doesnt, it tells me theres an error while downloading from the server. I am connected via wifi and my SD Card has 1.64gb free, and I did root my device and all that

    I'm still very happy with Watery v1.2a (modified). Do you still plan for any further work on this? Thanks.

    I don't know why but I am still having problems with installing a zip after I open it , then I try to rezip it... I use 7zip and ESfile manager ... All I am trying to do is putin new music and browser apps ... but no matter what, if I unzip it then rezip it it wont take... Any body have any ideas of what or why this happens? thanks

    What do you mean by "won't take". Are you getting errors or just not seeing the apps after the update?

    Hello,

    Just curious, why would you unzip then re-zip? If you use winzip you can view all ziped files and drag out (remove) anything you dont want to flash without ever unziping. This is handy for signed circomstances. Hope I am being clear enough... 7z is a great program but I find it is not as user friendly. If you want your browser and music working just pull them from another Telechips device rom. You may need to try a couple but you will get one working.

    Cheers

    7Zip will let you delete and add as well. I don't know about drag and drop but it works. When I want to re zip something, I always use Linux and resign the zip after.

    +1 The resign is the correct way... 7z just tends to piss me off since it is different than what I have used for 10+ years. I do know that there is less chance of bad files using 7z but I just don't like it.

    I'll try winzip... I'm running WK 1.1 and it runs great... I check in from time to time here to see whats new with it and i read how people are using 1.2a with no issues ... I can't load the zip after i re-zip 1.2a with the music and browser apps... It doesn't load onto the tab... It tries to but doesn't...

    No errors message just won't load the zip... Its crazy because if i load the zip as is it takes no problem but not after i re-zip it...

    I tried with the file zipped ... I'm not sure if the app i tried to copy into it was zipped but I'll try it again ...

    Thanks to all for your feedback

    Sounds like you are on windows and there is another possible reason. The file name has to be blablabla.zip Sometimes in windows you wind up with blablabla.zip.zip The whole "Hide extensions for known file types" thing. I've seen it before.
