Coby Kyros MID8024 Android 2.3 update (Nefarious Bread v1.2)

Since flashing the 8024 with Nefarious Bread which is using Android 2.3 instead of stock 2.2.

I have lost a few apps that worked on stock which I listed in previous post those are the only ones I personally noticed there could be more that will no longer work.

Will I be flashing back to stock to have those apps working again? NOPE… Because I have much better performance and am completely fine with no longer being able to use those apps. It is an easy update and from what I understand Nefarious Bread is already rooted upon flashing to your Coby.

Netflix now works 100% no need for no device check and market place works flawlessly no more app crashes that would occur using the no root method on the stock 2.2 Android.

Here is where you can get the Coby stock update it also explains how to flash the new update and this also will be the same when updating to Nefarious Bread v1.2.

This is the download link for Nefarious Bread V1.2: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3116735/Nefarious-Bread-V1.2.zip

The Rom Nefarious Bread was not created by me I take no credit for this awesome rom. I have heard that Version 1.3 is complete and in testing I will post it when it gets a public release.

Enjoy and good luck! Any questions or any thing I forgot feel free to email me or just reply here and I’ll get back A.S.A.P:)

The Rom I am sharing from my dropbox is the one I am using it is clean and was scanned using Avast AV.  PC & AntiVirus is 100% up to date ALWAYS SCAN FILES YOU DOWNLOAD! Format 1gb or more MicroSDHC card fat32 extract all files & folders to the  Micro SDHC card & follow the Coby flash guide link is above.

If the links are no longer working please let me know.

P.S,  Always do your homework prior to hacking or changing your stock device!

Start at these places they worked for me and should work for you if in doubt google is your answer.

Coby Electronics Shuts Down, Taking Customer Warranties With It

Coby was gone early-mid 2013 the link I posted is old news. But relevant none the less.

Unfortunately the links to Coby’s home page are no longer available.
All other links are working okay.

The links to Coby webpage will still be shown but will not link to anything useful.
For the information that was listed at Coby’s webpage can be found at the usual places.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/
http://www.androidtablets.net

Also google is a great place to search. Since there are newer tablets available I will not be keeping up on the Coby MID8024.
I’ll do my best to keep the links that I have control over active.

      All modifications are a risk. I feel for you.. before getting to upset be sure to follow the links I posted for you and look in the Coby section of the forums. You should find a solution or possibly a answer you don’t want to hear. Either way atleast you will know where your at. Some bricks are only semi so get to some reading and please reply back on your findings.

      If you feel like posting here how you did the custom rom and what it’s doing after you flashed it. I’ll see if I can come up with an answer. I had no issues flashing the Kyros if it were a Gtablet issue those ive had semi brick on me and was able to come back from it but the Kyros I never had an issue.

  4. I’m an Android nb and just bought a used Kyros 2084 to learn my way around. Junky little thing stock but neferious bread turns it into something actually fun and useful.
    Instructions were clear and precise. The whole process, downloads and everything, took under 20 minutes. Running just fine.
    Thanks much

  5. Works great, long better than stock. This is an example about why free software is better than any proprietary option. My tablet was almost a brick, and now it’s a real tablet!
    Thanks!

  6. I’m very satisfied with the results, now i feel my tablet is working at its best. Specially with the access to google play store. The installation went easy and fast. At first i kept the buttons pressed (home & power) and it didn’t worked, then i just pressed and released the buttons and everything went well.

  10. first time doing anything like this to an android device. im a bit afraid to try, as i swear that i read in another of your posts that you have to format the sd card first. is this done in the tablet, or on the pc? where do i find the MID8024.zip folder? maybe im a bit dumb at this, as ive never tried this before, as previously stated, but could you give me some simpler instructions on how to do this, or possibly point me in the direction where i can find the information? please reply, and thanks!

    1. Since I no longer own the Coby MID8024 I can not check on that. When installing any rom or software that is not provided by Coby themselves is a risk. Custom roms are great they allow you to get updates you would never get from Coby. So sometimes there are things that won’t work and sometimes it improves compatibility. Always do plenty of homework prior to modifying the stock software and then see if the custom rom is worth updating to. Follow the links listed on my blog you should be able to get latest updates and info there.
