But the factory rom is slow and sluggish.
The Froyo would be nice but unable to mount sdcard is a big turn away for me.
Wouhou! It worked! Thanks! In fact the back (cover) wasn't removed completely when the graphics became normal. Just in case, I removed it completely, disconnected the large white connector and connected it back. Powered on the device and everything was back how the graphics should look.
I made some small scratches but barely noticeable, well worth the saving of 30 bucks!
Thanks AdamTrick for that! I owe you one.
Here's a pix in case someone want to see how the board looks like
What are your thoughts? With all of the new A8 based Coby tablets running 2.3 announced at CES, is the 7015 worth buying at this point? Not sure on release dates, but some have suggested as early as March. That said, I can pick up a 7015 for ~ $160 CAD today - not sure how much the new ones will sell for. My other thought is that the general consensus seems to be that the build quality of the 7015 is pretty decent - I guess there is no guarantee that the new ones will be manufactured by the same third party or to the same standards. Also not sure how much resale value the 7015 will have after 6 months. Even $160 looks kinda steep for the specs compared to the Nook Color retailing for $90 more - though Nook would require a trip to the US as I am in Canada. Canada needs more tablets!!
The impulsive side of me wants to jump on this, but I suspect it would be wiser to wait. Just feeling kinda twitchy since my PDN died
So has anyone noticed that with the froyo mod you don't need to modify the wifi settings to connect to a tether. It will allow for the connection without it.Another thing is that there was some info about not being able to play video I can't get you tube to work with the normal app but I can stream video using a program called orb. Works very well with a good wifi connection.
Did you try the orb video with android eclair 2.1? My orb live tv and video drop out with android 2.1 on my rooted gapp 7015. My orb is an older version running on XP 2.8 single core Athlon computer. I can not use the current version of orb because the XP Athlon cpu is too weak.
I can get my HAVA (sling box like) to work in 2.1 when I stream a SD at low quality over my wifi g network although it takes a long time to buffer. By the way I also have Pogo Plug.
Pogo Plug and orb will stream music fine in 2.1 but the video mp4 starts and shortly stops.
I have been thinking about installing froyo but currently convert my Beyond TV files with VideoRedo TVSuite, removing the padding and/or commercials, to mp4 and use the eclair video players for playback. I could use froyo over wifi instead.
How did you get your hava working? I am using testtube on my lg ally. Testtube dosent show up in the market on my kyros. I pulled the apk off my phone and installed it on the kyros. it runs but when searching for a connection it can not find the hava(the settings are identical for the ally which works fine). I know i must be missing something here to get my hava working on the kyros would be amazing.
