    You were banned for the your bad behavior and I was right you are what you are! Nothing wrong with my Roms and COBY didn't do what you said because of me. So shame on you for saying that. You need to man up here. The goal is to help members not to have personal attacks. That's now how real programming works you learn and try to solve it. Well your a construction worker so can't expect much comment sense from you.

    You make KTZ Recovery that was yours and you got your credit for it. But you gone postal one day and you were banned for what you did. So man up and stop this crap. I only got on here to let you know you need to stop spreading these false statements.

    I have no interest in you or your opinions, you cheat people out of their money with roms that are others work, and you are the only one right now still encouraging users to use livesuite, which has proven to damage tablets, you are an idiot plain and simple. Livesuite has been banned from this site cause it damages tablets, yet you still push people to use it, causes tablets to being destroyed, with your roms, which are really roms belonging to others.

    Remove the link of your site to my 7065 rom, I never gave you nor your users permission to post it.

    Hello,

    I tried method number two and now I'm stuck on the Coby screen. Nothing I do seems to work. I can get into the recovery, but nothing helps. Are there any tricks you know of, maybe a zip that I could install from recovery to get it to work?

    Thanks,
    Niea

    You could do a factory reset via stock recovery this should fix your problem.

    Hi vampirefo,

    I got a coby kyros mid7011 which i think is the same with mid7065 (by the way i'm from philippines). i successfully rooted my tablet using framaroot found in xda , the problem started when i restarted the tablet. the softkeys were gone (home, back and search) and i cannot install any apps although my tablet is still rooted. i want to try to flash your rom and your recovery. i already copied the uImagerecovery in my sd card. i followed your steps carefully and there was an error. a dead android image appeared and when i pressed the power button, the stock recovery appeared. i just want to know and hopefully if we can flash the recovery tru spflash? or there's an alternative way to install recovery on our tablet.

    thanks and godspeed.

    I checked their specs, and they are both mtk6577 dual core, both ics 4.0, 4", the main difference only is the ram which the mid7011 is 512mb and the mid7065 is 1gb. so i just hoping that your technique will work on my tablet.

    oh i'm sorry. i'm a total noob. i thought that cortex a9 dual core is a mtk chipset. oh well, i guess my tablet will not be repaired. can you suggest a stock rom and cmw that is compatible with my tablet, please? Thank you so much. Appreciate the time you spent in answering my questions.

    Successfully rooted coby 8065 using this method. Thanks for the post.

    How can we backup from adb ? This method:

    cat /dev/block/nandc > /sdcard/dump/boot.img
    cat /dev/block/nandg > /sdcard/dump/recovery.img
    busybox tar -cvf /sdcard/dump/8042_system.tar /system

    Did not work.

    Update. After making a system dump using adb pull, the busybox tar command fail led me to replace busybox. After that the method:

    busybox tar -cvf system.tar /system

    worked for me. Still researching boot.img and recovery.img backups.

    Coby gen3 methods didn't work for me. To replace busybox, had to use commands from vampirefo's root.sh method for su.

    for my 7065

    cat /dev/mtd4 > /sdcard/dump/boot.img
    cat /dev/mtd3 > /sdcard/dump/recovery.img

    check yours first, then just make changes as needed if your numbers are different.

    adb shell

    cat /proc/mtd



    below is what 7065 looks like.
    Code:
    cat /proc/mtd
    dev:    size   erasesize  name
    mtd0: 00800000 00200000 "bootloader"
    mtd1: 00800000 00400000 "logo"
    mtd2: 00800000 00400000 "aml_logo"
    mtd3: 00800000 00400000 "recovery"
    mtd4: 00800000 00400000 "boot"
    mtd5: 20000000 00400000 "system"
    mtd6: 08000000 00400000 "factory"
    mtd7: 20000000 00400000 "cache"
    mtd8: 90000000 00400000 "userdata"
    mtd9: 123000000 00400000 "NFTL_Part"

    Thank you. I just found a method cat/dev/block/mtdblock4 > /sdcard/dump/boot.img,

    but your is shorter ! I just uploaded a new system image to firmware dumps with boot and recovery images included. Do you think the 7065 recovery will work on a 8065?

    Just for comparison, here's the output of the 8065:

    cat /proc/mtd

    mtd3: 00800000 00200000 "recovery"
    mtd4: 00800000 00200000 "boot"

    You can see my recovery an boot is different then yours. While the recovery would most likely work the kernel inside the recovery.img if flashed to your tablet would corrupt your recovery partition, making your tablet unbootable.
