Hi all, here is the issue. I recently adquired a Tablet Coby Kyros Mid 7020 7". I´ve been looking around and found out that lots of people bricked their tablet after trying updating it and aparently Mid 7020 got 2 different Hardware but there is no support from oficial site of Coby.

I would like to know if it´s possible to install a custom rom on this tablet, and if so, which rom is better? And also, if it is possible to unbrick it?

Regard 4thrun

PS: Mid 7020 has a graphic bug, most of the games (angry birds and etc.) won´t display right, does anybody got a clue how to fix it?

Indeed, I also rooted it with z4root and installed android market. Though, it´s really kind of slow, and shouldn´t be. My mini pro has less cpu and it´s way faster than my kyros =/

And really, I don´t recommend custom rom unless u r sure it´s working with 7020, cuz lot´s of my friends tried and now all they got is a bricked kyros.

I subscribe this topic, I've buyed a "rebrand" of Coby Kyros MID7020: Mpman MP720.
I'm looking for a way to save the original firmware/ROM without root permissions, to reflashing if I have problems.

Hey guys, new to this, just got a MP720, not much firmware about for this one, not must of anything really,

I did however find this site with links to the to original firmware from MPMAN,

using google translate haha, it seems theres two flavours of chipset for this taplet,

Hynix NAND firmware:
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/29403117/MP720 An 2.3_Hynix.rar
Micron NAND firmware:
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/29403117/MP720 An 2.3_Micron.rar
Flash Tool:
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/29403117/upgrade tool and Introduction.rar

that said i have not tested these FW's and cant vouch for the safety of using them,

I'm not a developer but hopefully they could be usefull for making a cyanogenmod for it (fingers crossed haha) or some one who has bricked there tap,

Go to Google and search for Kyros Tablet Zone KTZ

That's a website with custom ROMs for every Kyros tablet. I've seen ROMs for 7022 but not for 7020, and I'm not sure which is the difference.
