script completed successfully but root checker still failed.
I've got a 9742 on its way from Texas...if dude ever ships the freakin' thing. At any rate, if you could provide the root script for that model, I'll do the dump and up it as soon as it arrives.
So I think the root is only temporary until you reboot.
Oh well, at least that's long enough to get the firmware dump.
Once I put a restore firmware together this thing will be easy to permanently root.

I am uploading the restore firmware now.
I have tested it on my Novo 7 Elf tablet which has similar hardware and it worked, but I can't guarantee it works on the Coby 7042 since I do not have the hardware to test.
Therefore, I recommend that somebody with an already bricked tablet be the first to try it.
The Allwinner A10 tablets are actually impossible to brick beyond recovery, but a working restore firmware (which Coby doesn't provide) is needed to recover.
