This will only work for 32 bit. Start by downloading the Intel GMA / Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family drivers for XP/2000 HERE. Unzip the drivers to a directory. Then Download and install THIS .INF updater utility (not intended for this use, but it helps us out).
After that, goto your Device Manager, Display Adapters, Whatever your display shows up as now (probably generic VGA), right click - Update Driver Software, Browse my computer, “Let me pick…”, “Have Disk…” then browse to the folder you unzipped the driver to, goto Graphics/ and select the igxp32 file. Press Open. Highlight Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family item in the Model list, press Next, then finish the driver install.
Music cohort Bignic surprised me with a remix of Slow Slide and blew it the hell up. He’s a hell of a guy and has made some thunderous tracks. Well worth checking out. You can find more from Bignic here http://bignic.bandcamp.com/ | http://www.thebignic.com
Also,.. a guy by the name mortal1 sent me a version where he added some live improv to it using his customer controller, “korguitar”.
A coworker recently picked one of these up. Currently there are no official releases of Cyanogenmod or anything else for the Kyros, so the next best thing is just to root it since its basically running a vanilla Android 2.2 already. I was going to simplify and post the detailed steps it took to root the Coby Kyros 8024 using ADB from the Android SDK because looking around the net all signs pointed to negative in using Superoneclick or any other program to root it automatically. In fact, the only information I could find for the 8024 all suggested to use the manual method for rooting it, with the same steps described for the popular first gen Kyros 7015.
Turns out the latest version of Superoneclick released 2nd August 2011 works just fine (because it now uses an updated 2.2 exploit for rooting that should work on ALL Gingerbread Android devices). I already had Googles’ USB driver and ADB in place from screwing around with my Nook and from programming APK’s in Processing, but Superoneclick comes with ADB so I do not think you need to install the full Android SDK or JAVA ADK. However, you will need Googles USB driver which is a part of the SDK installer. There are easy to follow instructions for installing the USB Driver and Android SDK on the Cyanogenmod website.
Once you have the USB Driver working and your Tablet connected (as verified in those instructions), all you need to do is download the latest version of Superoneclick (as of this writing, its version 2.1.1) and run it. From that point on its pretty self-explanitory… all you have to do is click a few buttons. Many thanks to it’s developer for making this process absurdly simple.
You can find Superoneclick and further information here:
Someone going by the name Gameboygenius at the muffwiggler forums did some digging around and discovered that the microcontroller within the Monotribe has the ability to send and recieve MIDI. Full on control even, not just notes but parameter automation. This is of course amazing. Can’t wait for further details so I can trick mine out. Here are the videos:

My Monotribe arrived yesterday. Below is the first recording I did of it layered up. I also use the Monotron in it a bit. More of a live jam/dub than a composed track. Instead of posting a x0x style acid track from it, I thought I’d go the route of spacemen 3, the silver apples, early chemical brothers, etc. Just a big ol wall of sound really.
Skeleton of a (very basic) step sequencer written in Processing. BPM and threading not implemented yet. Left-click to add/remove triggers, Right-click to start/stop loop.

A basic sketch that shows how to use millis() for basic animation, in this case a fade-in of a rect(). millis() returns the current runtime of the sketch in milliseconds. Left-click for Fade-In, Right-click for Fade-Out. The transparency (alpha channel of fill/stoke) is calculated evenly across the duration, meaning you only have to change 1 variable (delaytime) for adjusting the speed and fade. I wrote this from scratch as a learning activity some time ago, should be helpful to newcomers.
