    Can you tell me if, using and updating the firmware from the Coby site, will affect the rooting outcome or process, when I do it at a later time.

    I'd be careful. At least one person has had trouble with the new firmware not allowing unsigned zips after it is installed. This thread:

    http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/coby-generation-1-technical/12548-rooting-trouble.html

    Coby may have recently updated the update to cause this. I think you'd be better off rooting and installing clockwork with the firmware that came with your device then backing up and either installing an older 7015a update or one of the custom ROMS. Would hate to see you install the update from Coby site then be locked out of applying unsigned zips.

    Can anyone confirm this is a problem? I know I'm not willing to try it then be locked out.
