    Hi guys,

    I followed the procedure above and all is good until Step 17. When it reboots, it just stops at the "Coby" screen (never gets to "Android"). The only way to unfreeze it is to hit the Reset button on the back. The same thing happens if I try to enter by pushing down the Back and Power buttons at startup. I tried redownloading the recovery.img and running through step 16 again, but got the same result. The problem is that I can't even get into the standard recovery mode now. Can anyone help?

    You might have to use the SDK to force recovery to come up.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I'll give it a try.

    I knew things were going too well to last when this happened. :(
    I'm also thinking there may be a problem with the flash_image file I copied over.

    I have coped the recovery file to the sdcard and have copied it to the /system/bin.
    the only way I can copy this is to change flash_image to recovery.img
    # cp /sdcard/flash_image /system/bin/flash_image
    cp: can't stat '/sdcard/flash_image': No such file or directory
    to
    cp /sdcard/recovery.img /system/bin/recovery.img
    # chown root.shell /system/bin/recovery.img
    # chmod 0755 /system/bin/recovery.img
    I have check over and over and the recovery.img is there on both. I have used the file expert to check
    this.

    Well, using the SDK did not solve the problem. Still got the freeze-up on reboot rather than going to clockworkmod recovery mode. Searched around and found another recovery.img on the XDA developers forum here: http://teamtelechips.naobsd.org/experimental/20101212/recovery.COBY7015.img.zip

    Loading this image on my SD card and running through Step 16 worked! Was then able to add the Google Apps. Don't know why the other recovery.img didn't work. I downloaded it a few times on different computers, but had the same results. Might try the watery rom upgrade next. :D

    Hi again
    Just realized that I have 7015 version. Is there any advantages to upgrade to 7015A ? Can it be done after rooting and adding Google market place?? Any help appreciated

    You should read the thread I started about the update when it was first released. All the official updates wipe system and suggest erasing your data.

    My dropbox has had too much traffic, sorry. I'm trying to find a better solution.

    I tried to upload the flash_image file using the attachment feature on the forum but that was a no go. It looks like the attachment function doesn't support that file type.

    Would www.4shared.com work as a place to store the file for download? I tried to go to the site but it's blocked out by work's filter.

    If you zip the binary, you can attach it. I don't know if I trust 4shared... Plus you've already confirmed that some offices filter it.
