Rooting Coby Kyros MID7012 with SuperOneClick
I've spent some time researching how to root my Coby Kyros MID7012 tablet. I tried Z4Root first and it failed. I found and used a program called SuperOneClick v18.104.22.168 and was able to successfully root my Coby Kyros MID7012.

The z4root app installed on the device, but when I pressed the button to do a permanant root, z4root closed and nothing happened. Z4root was a fail for my Coby Kyros MID7012.

SuperOneClick v22.214.171.124 zip file can be downloaded at shortfuse.org. The Short Fuse website is a bit confusing as what to actually click on to get SuperOneClick. Most of the big "Download" buttons and text are for some program other than SuperOneClick. They are probably just adds. Scroll down the home page of shortfuse.org and you will see the text "Click here to download SuperOneClick v2.3.3" right before posted comments. Or use the following direct link at Deposit Files.
