    Yes Guys .. i have been reading and reading this forum a lot and hoping someone would help unbrick my tablet..well i manage to do it myself thanks to others that developers that help created this firmware...credits goes to them...

    Since i was unable to reset my tablet using all reset method and hard boot option...Especially since darn Coby has not release a firmware for Coby 7024. i had tried a tons of different firmware that match the same exact chipset as coby Samsung S5PV210 (Cortex A8). but i was not determine to gave up just yet.:confused:

    i am so happy that i even manage to put Andriod Gingerbread. Yes u read what i said correctly.:):D:eek:

    All i did was formatted the "SDCARD" that is inside the Coby tablet.
    * Note i am not refering to the External card but internal SDCArd***

    Completely using a software named "SDFormatter" then i placed the new firmware from a different tablet Herotab_C8_0419_Gingerbread Rooted.zip which is Kernel version: 2.6.35.7
    Android version: 2.3.1


    ******~~~~~Opps.. i forgot to add please extract the download file then copy all the everything that is in the extracted folder. and copy it to your memory sdcard INSIDE TABELT... SO SORRY i am only human..~~~~~****

    And Using update button. by Pressing Power and silver circle center shiny button together
    And waited for tablet to do a complete system wipe and update..then it will shut down.

    After that boot the tablet like normal by pressing power and u wait a minute for it to process and you will have a working Android with new feature designs...Yes the soft keys are working as well. and wifi..:D:eek:;)

    Hope i have been a great help to you guys that need help to unbrick your coby Kyros MID7024.......:cool::cool:

    Try unbrick at your own risk.. Not recommending for update untill Hopefully Coby Release a firmware update..!!!

    yes. but still dont expect everything to work 100%. for example there is no need for bluetooth, phone, voice dailer, contacts, since it is not a phone...Oh yes to let others know the camera does tek a very long time to finally appear to work.. but all i care is to use it to surf web, read ebooks, i try games later....

    Please note i dont take credit for no ones hard work...i praise them for it...

    One thing i do notice is that it does not include any market apps.

    Performance, works faster when touching the tablet, and opening apps,

    should be noted that it states low disk space...on top left had corner....

    If anyone can help tweak this firmware to turn it into a top notch firmware please be free to help out..

    I'm glad to see that someone has figured out how to root and upgrade to Gingerbread! I am happy right now with my 7015, but now that this has occurred, it will not take long for ROM's to start coming out. Glad you got your brick functional again!

    This is great news! Might I suggest that since you can use another SD card internally people save their original cards as backup in case something goes wrong. Also, the C8 batteries have a different reading than ours so I expect the battery meter will be off. The C8 is a capacitance screen, is there still a way to calibrate?
