    Hey everyone, thanks to Arlic, a solution to the hard brick has been found! First you want to follow this guide : [Guide] Reviving your tablet in windows. - SlateDroid.com to setup your external SD card. Do not follow steps 5.2 and 5.3 even though your tablet has a NAND. once you have completed the guide, open the back of your tablet, insert the sd card into the EXTERNAL sd card slot. and look for the Nand chip. You will want to short pins 7 & 8 on the NAND, using a small screwdriver or piece of metal that can fit between the pins. What this does is make it look like there is no NAND to the processor, so it doesn't try to boot from it, and looks for the bootloader on the external SD. if your SDcard is setup right, the tablet should turn on with a white screen. if this happens, you can take the screwdriver off the pins, that way the board sees there is a NAND now and will write the firmware to the NAND. let it run till it shuts off. once it does, you can put on a new firmware using the normal flash procedure "Power + HOME" and you do not have to short the pins a second time. Be aware that when you flash a firmware the second time, the screen will still be white, so you will have to let it run till the tablet turns off, but once you turn it on, it should be normal ( if you use the official firmware like I did. I don't know what the results will be if you use another custom firmware :p )

    I'd like to know if now with the tablets unbricked, the ROMs improvement that the members here was performing will continue... I'd like to see a Gingerbread Wiceed's ROM with the adjustments I mentioned before.

    Tnx, I found it... I'm using the Evo now.... that rom is really good... the touch is a little bit less sensitive than the wiceed's rom, but the all working features make it the best, including market apps compatibility.

    Is it possible to format/imaging/restore the internal NAND/SD without open the tablet?
    Maybe by booting from external SD with some kind of linux on a SD, maybe with an USB keyboard attached!

    Contrary to popular knowledge, imaging internal SD won't give you a complete system backup. It will include system files at most, no u-boot and no kernel.

    And there isn't CWM for 1024 (or any Kyros x024 AFAIK), nandroid backups won't be useful either because they cannot be restored.

    Complete firmware restoration must be created manually, there is another thread going on about it somewhere else in the forum.

    It's pretty much useless to clone the internal memory when you can download the official firmware at coby's website.
