Hi all, I recently rooted my Kyros mid8042 and was successful. However, upon flashing clockwork mod, my tablet was stuck in a boot loop every time I restarted it. I tried rebboting in recovery and wiping caches and data but nothing. The last thing I tried to do was PDA the stock rom from my PC using Odin. It worked. But, totally not the way i wanted it to. I had effectively flashed the wrong rom onto my tablet and now all I get is a white screen in regular AND recovery boot. Can somebody please tell me if there's any hope out there of saving this thing?

Why in the heck did you use Odin when it's not for this tablet?

You can try using Livesuite and a Livesuite ROM to see if that will get you back up and running, but I suspect that there's nothing here that can be done.

Why didn't you just flash your stock recovery? The tool you used most likely damaged your mbr and entire partition structure. Not much hope for you, as suggested try livesuite, also get cobys return address and 15 dollars ready just in case livesuite doesn't work.
