Coby Kyros MID 1042 Can't install ClockWorkMod, doesn't list my device. What to do?
Tuesday 12th of March 2013
Hello,I'm a newbie to all this Android stuff. Just got this Coby Kyros MID 1042 tablet and it doesn't have Google Play Store. The following is my quest to open my device to be able to install and use Google Play Store. After searching much forum and YouTube info I found a ROM (AlienDroid V.2.0) here: [[ROM] [Coby MID1042] ▶Alien Droid◀ (Advanced GUI customization) [11.18.12] that I want to use to replace my standard Coby ROM, it includes Google Play Store. In following the instructions I was, with much effort, finally able to root this tablet using "Unlock Root" tried "SuperOneClick" but it failed. Next I'm trying to install ClockWorkMod and can't find a way to do it. When I access "ROM Manager" I try to "Flash" ClockWorkMod as my Recovery Setup and it doesn't show my device. It says ClockWorkMod has no Recovery Setup currently for my device. I'd really like to be able to have this installed and working. I've also successfully installed drivers on my computer for my device and installed JDK and SDK, which I know nothing about other
[AD-HOC TETHERING] Tether your iPhone to the Coby Kyros MID x024!!!
Saturday 04th of February 2012
Android does not natively support the ability to connect to an Ad-Hoc network; so what's the big deal? Aren't most of our Wi-Fi networks nowadays all about 802.11x for which there is widespread compatibility?The truth is, that the Ad-Hoc infrastructure is the only means by which a mobile 3G device is capable of broadcasting its signal. Seeing as the Kyros is a Wi-Fi only device, one could see the benefit behind tethering--you're out of a Wi-Fi zone and you need to pull up a map or webpage to find your way home (for example). Wouldn't it be convenient to just pull out your 3G enabled iPhone and share your 3G connection with the tablet for a more comfortable browsing and media consumption experience? Unfortunately though, this is a lot easier said than done seeing as the iPhone's tethering applications only broadcast 3G signals.Fortunately, the generous developers of this forum have made this process possible; all it needed was some experimentation to figure out how to pull off the iPhone-Android tether.What you need:A Coby Kyros MID x024 device (tested on the 7024 at the time of writi

Factory Reset for Coby Kyros MID 8120
Saturday 14th of July 2012
Hello Fellows, Apparently I installed some app which is conflicting with the software. Sometimes the tablet starts, and when it does, a few seconds later the massage appears "Sorry! android.process.acore unexpectedly stopped. Force close". And it reboots, and the same thing happens over and over. Sometimes it only stays on the Android logo loading, and it reboots over and over.I want to do a factory reset to erase the conflicting app I must have installed, and to format the system and start clean. How do I do that? I've looked at some posts showing combinations of buttons but that hasn't worked for me. When I try that the screen goes black and nothing happens. ADB isn't working wither because the PC won't recognize the tablet.Any solution?

Coby Kyros Mid 7022 reset/root help?
Thursday 19th of January 2012
Hello,I have only posted a few times here on Android Tablet.net. I am a novice android user. I got my first android an archos 43 early last year but dropped it a couple months later. I replaced it with the Coby Kyros Mid 7022 in July 2011. Witht the help of the forum here i was able to get market and flash player on my 7022. On the most part I have been happy with my tablet until recently. I noticed my Home button has stopped working, my system has slowed down and take a long time to boot up, the battery is draining rapidly (screen keeps waking up), and the lock screen is gone.After a bit of searching I see these are all common problems. I am hopeing someone can walk me through fixing them. I have almost no experiance with this type stuff. Is there a way to backup everything I currently have on my tablet? I have some videos i do not want to lose. Would rooting be advisable? I found a few tutorials but they assume I know some basics which I dont LOL. Please help.Thanks Victoria
