    UPDATED 01/17/12

    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.
    Maybe lfom can help bring it to the 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 just flashed my tablet but now he don't turn on!
    i press the on/off button, in the screen appears the Volcano logo and it turns off in less than 2 seconds. I cant flash anymore, any ideas?

    I think thats why my battery was with 0 battery, it was charging. I flashed it with the tablet plugged in in the energy ~~

    Thanks steev

    We probably won't be adding anything until after the major issues are fixed.

    Right now the biggest issue we are struggling with is getting the wifi to work with the standard kernel.

    Yeah wifi was working with Asure's kernel, but not urbetter's kernel.

    We now have a fix for wifi (thanks to Symbean) so we can use our kernel again. Expect a new alpha soon.

    it was just a little confusing for me . . . reading the new stuff over on the 'slate' side . . . hmmm ? . so the haipad factory in 'shenzhen' came out with 'ice cream sandwitch' for the M7S which is GREAT news because . . . at its core the 'S' ( super ) model is the same ( samsung ) processor - pv210 guts as ours.
    .
    then symbeam snagged it immediately and is working on back porting it to the year old herotab / dropad model on the ( hongkong ) epad forum. . And so our steev and tlbardelljr are helping him in a group effort mano-a-mano, on the slate side.
    .
    did i get that right ? . and haipad fw is really urbetter fw ?
    .
    and i think this is "extra" good news for the other 'very smart and capable' devs besides our humble steev... many more cooks in the kitchen.

    Yep rain you are right.

    But MID7024 users don't get too excited... yet.
    The ICS ROM boots but our touch screen does not work.

    I have not given up yet.

    Really hoping that those new ICS Coby tablets will be using the same CPU :p

    Just for the record

    Flashed it just fine on 8024. The Touch is very smooth, wifi an market are working fine. There's some strange red flash that appears from time to time when i'm using market. There's some lagging when i select the "apps" icon on top right corner, but there's no lagging in sliding through screens, even in the apps bay.

    Congrats to all of you guys, this job is becoming amazing

    And sorry for my bad english.

    Edit: There's some way to use usb on hoost mode ?
