    Requesting Firmware Dumps from Coby Generation 3 Devices

    Disclaimer: Due to users continuously bricking their tablets by attempting to use the Livesuite ROM images in this post, the links to those images have been removed. System dumps are unaffected.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I am requesting firmware dumps from Coby Generation 3 (MIDxx42) devices using the Allwinner A10 SoC.
    With these I should be able to create firmware restore images to be used for unbricking.

    Firmware dump instructions here:
    http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/...tml#post205970

    Then upload the *.img files and system.tgz you pulled

    Thanks

    Coby doesn't provide firmware downloads for these tablets, which is why I'm trying to put these together.

    UPDATE:

    WARNING:
    I have tested these on my Novo 7 Elf tablet which has similar hardware and it worked, but I can't guarantee they work on the Coby tablets 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.


    Firmware restore images for Coby Kyros 7042:

    It was discovered that Coby is using 2 different touchscreens in the 7042 models, goodix and ft5x_ts.

    The firmware below should support both touchscreens:
    coby_7042_4.0.3_dual_ts.zip (Thanks David for the dump), Confirmed working by David

    The following firmware only supports 7042 models with Goodix touchscreens:
    coby_7042_4.0.3.zip (Thanks to Joe88 for providing the dump)
    md5: 3c014061580d74c4c6b112204f3deb92

    Firmware restore images for Coby Kyros 9742
    coby_9742_4.0.3.zip (Thanks to RedDeer for providing the dump), Confirmed working by swalker5906
    md5: 71a31c954e164a0bb7f19bbd1a143d7a


    Flashing instructions:
    - Download LiveSuite, this is the flashing software for A10 devices
    - Run LiveSuitePack.exe (a bunch of files will be extracted to the current folder, so best to create a new one)
    - Now run livesuite.exe
    - Choose "SelectImage"
    - Choose the coby_kyros_4.0.3.img
    - Now you need to put your device in upgrade mode, to do so:
    1. power off the device
    2. Press and hold any physical key except the power key on the device(ie, press and hold Vol+ key, still holding in 3 and 4)
    3. Connect the tablet to your PC via USB cable
    4. Repeatedly press the power button until a popup dialog shows on your computer screen
    - Now follow the on-screen instructions

    If this works I look forward to seeing some custom ROMs from the Coby community

    I read that my 7042-4 has the Cortex A8 CPU. Do you still want the firmware dump? Where can I find the process to perform said dump?
    Thanks

    Thanks! The 7042 is one of the firmware dumps I'm looking for.

    Attached is a script that will dump your firmware.

    Instructions:
    - Install the ADB drivers for your device. (This guide here should work)
    - Root your device (see here: http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/...tml#post206352)
    - Download and unzip the attached file
    - Run dump.bat
    - Click "allow" if the Superuser dialog pops up on your tablet.

    The firmware files will be in the "dump" folder.

    I got an error near the end saying it couldnt "tar mount error(do you have root?)"

    the system file is 104MB

    I'll upload it

    Damn, I assumed it would already be rooted like the base Allwinner firmware, but I guess Coby changed it.

    Your system dump might be usable though.
    We will need root to dump the others.

    Thanks!

    Your system dump looks good.
    I will try to come up with a way to root this firmware so the other files can be dumped.
