Haven’t updated any of our tablets so started a few days ago.
Was using CFW – Nefarious-Bread – MID8024 for quite some time. But decided it was time to Try some new options. Ultimately I am staying with CFW for MID7024 based on Alldro2 Gingerbread. The rom works 100% with the MID8024.
I tried using Volcano – Honeycomb 3.0 for Coby Kyros x024. I removed quickly to many issues right now. It’s still an early beta. If you want to go ahead and try it here’s the latest beta version Volcano B1.3. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3116735/VolcanoB13.zip
Flashing the Kyros is a very simple procedure the most important thing is to always make sure you are using a compatible rom. The ROMS I have links to here “for this post” are 100% working with the MID8024 I have personally used them on mine. When I say 100% working this means they are for the 8024 and should not brick your tablet. It doesn’t mean the ROM it self is perfect it may have some issues. Always flash at your own risk. My files are 100% scanned and clean. Regardless always scan what you download. If you brick it don’t blame me because I had no issues flashing these exact ROMS to my Kyros.
Always backup your data if possible.
1-Format MicroSD card fat23. “I suggest 4gb cards.”
2-Download the Custom ROM you want to use. Verify it will work on the Coby Kyros MID8024.
3-Unzip the Rom contents to it’s own folder copy all contents inside the folder to your freshly formatted FAT32 Micro SDCard.
4-Unmount the SDCard from your pc and insert the card into your Kyros MID8024. “Tablet should be fully charged and turned off when inserting the SDcard that has the new ROM your going to flash to it.”
5- Hold down the Power Button and the Home button at the same time until the Flashing software is seen it will be a few … with some writing about starting custom flash let go of the buttons once you see writing and… come up. It will automatically flash your ROM to the tablet do not push any buttons or turn it off in the process just wait for it to complete the process on it’s own. It will shut it self down once it completes once you make sure its completely shutdown then you can boot your Tablet up with the new custom ROM you want:-)
The ROM I am using and like so far is CFW for MID7024 based on Alldro2 Gingerbread. Here’s the Rom .zip. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3116735/Alldro2-1.3_7024.zip
Here’s what’s been added to the latest version of Alldro2: ChangeLog 1.3 -Added Xbox gamepad driver (needs testers) -More accurate SD partitioning code (before partitions were created about 1 MiB larger than they’re supposed to be) -Added USE_EXTSD option in ROM.inf -Compiled latest stable busybox (1.19.3)
It’s Gingerbread but has Honeycomb interface it’s smooth and haven’t had any app issues yet. I also have not installed all the apps I use yet so some may not be working. Let me know what doesn’t work for you.
Good Luck and enjoy!
The 2 ROMS listed were not made by me. The link to thank the people who do these ROMS can be found here.. http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/coby-generation-2-development/24713-cfw-mid7024-based-alldro2-gingerbread.html and here for Volcano http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/coby-generation-2-development/29218-wip-volcano-honeycomb-3-0-coby-kyros-x024.html The links aren’t direct to the people who made these ROMS but at these links you should be able to get the info on those who made these great ROMS possible for our aging Tablets.
Here is what the Rom files from the Aldro Rom should look like on the formatted SDCard:
