I bought an MPMAN MP827, wich is a Coby Kyros MID8027 differently branded. The Coby Kyros MID8027 is like the Coby Kyros MID8024 but with only 3 soft buttons and with a capacitive display.
Trying to install some Google core apps the device went boot cycling. This was my mistake: I download the firmware for the MID 8024 from Coby's website and installed it, however, as it for a resistive display, all is working fine (well, haven't had the change to try everything actually) but the display won't recognize any touch. Volume and power physical buttons seem to work ok, the soft ones I don't really know.
What I needed is a firmware that works with the device. It's an 8 inch, Cortex A8 1Ghz, 3 soft buttons, capacitive display tablet, with 512MB RAM and 4Gb NANO Flash memory.
Anyone has the MPMAN 827 or the Coby Kyros MID 8027 (this is being sold by Amazon Germany) or even the Coby Kyros MID 8128 (seems to be exactly like the MID 8027 but with GPS and is also sold on Amazon Germany).
I have called Coby USA and they told me they do not have any product named MID 8027, which is bs as it is being sold in Germany.
I will call Coby Germany during the next week.
MPMAN also promised to get me the original firmware and have been great about what I did to it, but they are taking sooooo long.... and maybe there's a Gingerbread, already rooter and market enabled rom that works out there.
