    If it reverts to stock recovery, you need to rename or delete /system/etc/install-recovery.sh. That script detects changes to the recovery partition and overwrites them. After you delete that script and install recovery.img, it wil be permanent.

    Sorry, I posted that I found this video that proved extremely helpful for me when I set up my 7015 with the root and Clockwork mod but I evidently forgot to post the link. So...here it is.

    This worked perfectly on my 7015A with the laters Kyros update.

    Thanks for the help---I will try it later and see if that works. For some reason I thought that you were not supposed to unzip it. Do you know how to unzip on the tablet? I may unzip it on my laptop, saving it to the proper place on the sd card and try again.

    These are wonderful instructions! Worked as a charm! Thank you for posting it.


    One small correction:
    on step 7 - before installing z4root make sure that USB debugging is enabled in settings->application settings->development


    Also, on the first try ClockworkMod mode didn't respond to any buttons at all. I had to reset (button on the back of COBY) and after reboot repeat steps:
    1. Terminal Emulator
    2. su
    then repeat step 16.
    On the second try it worked fine.

    Thank you again!

    Would think you should update it before starting either with either one. I have 7015 and I updated before rooting. I really don't know what differentiates a 7015 form a 7015a. I thought they were the same thing.

    That would explain why the original procedure didn't work for me. I had to use the one in the video I posted here. Then when I got to the emulator and typed in SU I had to search the web for what to put in next because what was on this site didn't work. It actually took me three different sources to get it straight. But I'm pretty that between a few of us we have all the correct info and steps on this site now. In fact I believe one guy posted the video and the proper steps for 7015a in this thread (although it might have been a different thread).

    Anyway...you can get all the info on this site to do it with either 7015 or 7015a so I recommend just going ahead and getting the update first.

    Actually, I did explain that in the thread I originally created about the 7015a update...

    I am apologizing if this is in response to me. I ran into trouble with mine the first time and didn't bother looking all through this site for answers to what I needed. I just kept Googling until I got all the proper steps from 3 different places. Now that I've been around here a little bit I see how great amount of knowledge is on this site and the many things (make that MANY things) you have contributed here, I have no doubt that everything I needed was right here in this site.

    Sorry if Anything I posted stepped out of line or offended...didn't mean to at all.

    Anyway...my new 7015 is coming in the morning and as soon as I get it rooted and clockwork on I'm planning on trying to give watery a shot. I'm so completely ignorant with this stuff though it may end up being more than I can handle right now. Been looking through the thread on it and it looks a little complicated although it may come together when I get the tablet in front of me.

    BTW...yes...I'm getting another 7015 in the morning, you read correct. The 7025 I had planned to order fell through. Right after I sold the last 7015 I wen to order on Amazon and found that they have been postponed for shipping until late spring or early summer. What a total bummer!

    You have plans to get one of the new models to work with? I sure hope so...it would be nice to have your skillz working on updates for it....maybe get it tweaked a little faster.

    Got it to work finally---thanks! Now, can I turn off SuperUser? I am definitely not a developer nor do I think I want to modify this anymore...you can respond directly to my email if it would be easier (cmcduffie69@gmail.com). Thanks again!

    P.S. Anyone know how to add their Yahoo email acccount through the email application on the Kyros 7015?

    just got my 7015 today from target.com, $155 taxes and shipping, it took me about 4 tries with this method and finally worked. Thanks for your work. the bad attempts were probably due to miss typing. hopefully I'll like this device. I have 90 days to try it out due to target local store return policy. Again Thanks!

    Use the Yahoo Mail App available in the market.

    Answer this question: Do you have ClockworkMod Recovery really truly installed using this? When you hold the back button, and power button at the same time during bootup does it go into ClockworkMod Recovery or Android Recovery?
