Ok here is root attempt #2 if anybody will kindly try.
I am fairly certain it will work on the 7042, might need to be modified for the others.
If this works I take no credit, the root exploit was done by saurik.
The only thing I did was figure out the offsets for Coby's run-as bin.
- Install USB drivers like in earlier post
- Download and unzip attached file
- Run root.bat
If it worked you should now be rooted.
Hopefully this one works, and sorry about the previous failed attempt.

I got this error
Third time's a charm
I have also updated the fw dump script to request root permissions.

trying the firmware dump again
I tried the root explorer option in es file browser and it said test failed, feature doesnt work on this phone
not sure if that means anything
edit: firmware dumped fully now

Can you use the Root Checker App or Root Explorer App to verify the root ?
