Android 2.3 or higher for coby kyros tablet

This may or not be the place to put this however: Soi recently bought a tablet from (the above mentioned) only to find out that it will come with 2.1 aka eclair. i am worried there will not be an update for it, as a precaution i download a few .apk 's from my G1 and MyTouch(3G) that will hopefully cause it to update such as the update manager and some system apk but, if that doesn't work i want to be able to update it manually. I would really perfer to use an official release (so to speak) but if i have to i will use a custom one. I guess it would be could to mention i have the sdk manager stuff for WinVista

On a side note: does anyone have an online customizer for android...that is to say a website where i could maybe tweak smaller aspects that i wouldn't be able to on the phone its self...pre installed apps removing certain apps etc etc? sounds like a good idea if nothin else right?

Please don't post the same topic in multiple forums, it only complicates matters and makes it more difficult to get an answer.

Please post your thread in only one forum. Posting a single thread in the most relevant forum will make it easier for members to help you and will keep the discussion in one place. This thread is being closed because it is a duplicate.

Follow up

To MS3FGX & anyone else facing the same situation,

Thank you for your reports of cross-posting. We really appreciate all your efforts to keep LQ cleaned up, the mods couldn't do it alone. We rely on your vigilance & willingness to file reports to keep our community free of cross-posts. That being said, this situation could have been handled better:

If you find duplicate posts in 2 different fora, report the one in the inappropriate forum & post your answer in the appropriate one. -- It will make the mods' lives much easier. Because there was useful answer in the duplicate thread, I had to close this & also move it here (to Mobile). If the answer had been here, I would have only had to close the duplicate. The situation would have been 2ce as bad if I weren't a mod of both fora. As it is, I was able to do all this w/o having to report the dupe in Software to the mods of that forum in order to have it moved here to Mobile.

Thanks for your continued help & co-operation.
