    I am releasing this ROM to the Coby community in hopes that it will attract more developers and testers.

    This was tested on a Coby MID7024 and should also work on the MID8024 and MID1024.

    STANDARD DISCLAIMER:
    USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. By running this firmware, you agree that there is the possibility that you may brick your device. You agree that only you are responsible and no one else is responsible for supporting you if that occurs. (although the community is great at providing help to you!)

    EARLY ALPHA:
    USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. This is an early Alpha it is not intended to yet be a daily driver. Many things are broken and do not appear right on your tablet. This is intended to be a community project.

    Acknowledgments
    We owe our thanks to Ron and Symbean

    Installation

    1. Preparation for a good installation:
    - Back up important data to PC.
    - Use a freshly formatted FAT32 SDcard
    - Safely "Eject" the SDcard before removing it from PC to ensure that the data is completely written
    - Battery is fully charged.

    2. Installation:
    - Download the zip/rar then extract the zip/rar to a folder on PC.
    - Copy the entire content of the extracted folder to the root of the SDcard.
    - With the tablet is off, insert the SDcard in the TF card slot.
    - Press the "home" button and "power" button together until the boot screen and a small line of text appear then release the buttons. Leave the tablet undisturbed. It will turn OFF automatically after the flashing completed.
    - Now turn tablet on and enjoy the new firmware.

    Steev, I liked the loader, keeps the user informed of what is going on. Unfortunately, I have the same issue "renancslp" has with this load.

    Loaded this on my 1024 and could not get past the lock screen. It came up with the UI error.

    But it still is in alpha so there is hope.

    Thanks for all the work.

    I don't think the modules are the problem...the os is loading too slow or looking for more ram

    You can deletes systemui.apk from the utv210_root.tgz archive before installing the rom .It will allow you to get past that error. The touch screen is off. There is a blue circle tracer in the left hand corner if you drag that to the lockscreen it will allow you to unlock the lockscreen but thats as far as I've gotten. Deleting The SystemUI causes problems but atleast you can get an idea of what the rom looks like

    Got the following after installing ROM:

    "unfortunately, google partner setup has stopped. [OK]"

    Then of course, the touch screen isn't working.

    Tested in 1024 with MID card 1025_v4
    Amazingly it seems that the touchscreen worked for the System is displaying an error "Unfortunately, System UI has stopped" and I can play OK on this error!

    The side buttons also work, but I can not see the system because of this persistent error above.

    error log in ddms:

    It would be possible to compile the goodix module in this firmware to a gingerbread? For Gingerbread 703 ...
    That's because this was the only firmware that my coby ran the touchscreen, I have a Coby 1024 with motherboard 1025_v4 (dualtouch) that has the problem with touch module. The source code is accessible for new construction.

    I put myself available for any test
