Coby Kyros 7015 - How to install CyanogenMod


1. Download and install ClockworkMod .

2: Preparations. If you have not already, install Android SDKto your PC. Download bootimage and system image. Create a "Cyanogen" folder in the clockwork/backup folder on your SD card and unzip both files into this folder. I also renamed and placed my recovery.img in here.

Contents of /Cyanogen

3: Getting Some Files from Eclair. Connect your tablet to your PC and issue the following commands using ADB (Note: This step is to be done from Android 2.1, not from a previous version of CyanogenMod. If you already have CyanogenMod install, please revert to Android 2.1 to retrieve these files)

adb pull /sys/class/input/input1/calc_table calc_table
adb pull /data/softmac softmac
This should copy the calc_table and softmac files to the directory where ADB is located. Leave them where they are, and place build.prop and sensors.tcc92xx, from COBY7015-fixpack in there as well.

4: "Restoring" CyanogenMod. Boot into recovery mode (hold down front button and press the reset button on back of device). You should now be in ClockworkMod. IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY, MAKE A BACKUP! Choose "Wipe data / factory reset" and then "backup and restore." Restore from Cyanogen folder.

5: Restoring Some Key Files. With your tablet connected to your PC, issue the following ABD commands, taking care to keep your tablet awake:

adb remount
adb push build.prop /system/
adb shell chmod 644 /system/build.prop

adb push calc_table /system/etc/
adb shell chmod 644 /system/etc/calc_table

adb push sensors.tcc92xx.so /system/lib/hw/
adb shell chmod 644 /system/lib/hw/sensors.tcc92xx.so

adb push softmac /data/softmac
adb shell chmod 644 /data/softmac
adb reboot
After your tablet finishes rebooting, you should notice you have a working touch screen.

6: Enabling Google Apps. Download gapps-mdpi-tiny-20101020-signed.zip and MarketUpdateFroyoHdpi.zip. Place onto your SD card and reboot into recovery.vChoose "Install Zip from SDcard" and install gapps-mdpi-tiny-20101020-signed.zip and then MarketUpdateFroyoHdpi.zip. Reboot and accept the terms of the market!

7: Texting using Google Voice. Here is how to text with Google voice. You will need a working android phone (probably needs to be rooted) with Titanium Backup installed. Set up Google Voice on the phone-- make sure you opt for the Google phone number as that is the number you will be texting from. Once up and running, back up the program using Titanium. On the tablet, install Titanium Backup and use it to restore the Google Voice program (App+Data) to your tablet. (You may have to copy the backup files to the Titanium directory on the INTERNAL drive.) Once Google Voice Launches, switch back to Titanium Backup-- do not try to set up Google Voice. Titanium backup will then restore the data for Google Voice. You should now be able to text from your tablet.
