    [ROM] Custom ROM for Coby Kyros 9742 - rooted, deodexed, Google Play

    Disclaimer: Due to users continuously bricking their tablets by attempting to use this ROM, the link to the ROM has been removed from the post. Users are encouraged to use the methods presented in any of the following threads to root this tablet.

    READ FIRST: Development Index and Root Utility
    Linux Users, Coby 7042, Root, Recovery, Update, All Without Livesuite
    Linux Users, Coby 8042, Root, Recovery, Update, All Without Livesuite
    9742 Stock and Custom ROM

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

    This isn't much, just a slight modification of the stock firmware with root, Google Play, and a few other changes.

    WARNING:
    This firmware was tested on a Novo 7 Elf and it worked fine, but you are solely responsible for its use.
    If it bricks your tablet you've been warned.


    Features:
    - Gapps + Google Play fix
    - Rooted
    - NetworkLocation service fixed (to pinpoint your location in apps like Google Maps)
    - Deodexed for easier modding/theming
    - Samsung Galaxy tab fingerprint for better app compatibility

    Downloads:
    Version 0.1:
    cfw_coby_9742_4.0.3_0.1.zip

    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

    Windows 7 64-Bit users, it has been reported that you need to use LiveSuite 1.0.7: LiveSuitPack_v1.07.rar

    Thanks to all who posted firmware dumps and tested in this thread

    Maybe someone could make a video, because apparently I'm too dense to get this... I have the mid9742, I have downloaded the Live suite 1.0.7 I have the cfw_coby_9742_4.0.3_0.1.zip I followed the directions above, but I guess I cannot get the tablet into update mode using this method, unless I'm doing it wrong, but it seems pretty straight forward... I guess I can make a video of what I'm doing and maybe someone can tell me what I'm doing wrong? any help would be appreciated thank you.

    HOW TO USE THE LIVESUIT PROGRAM TO INSTALL (FLASH) THE CUSTOM ROM FROM YOUR PC TO YOUR TABLET

    Use your PC to Download the ROM you plan to install. Unzip the file containing the ROM. A new Folder Appears. (ROM inside)

    Click here to:
    Download LiveSuite v1.07 (Save Yourself Many Hedaches, Download this version)
    Thanks Patriotswrath
    Unzip the LiveSuit folder --- Open Folder LiveSuitPack_v1.07 Folder --- Find and Click the file ( LiveSuitPack_v1.07.exe )

    In the same folder:
    *** Find the USB Driver Installers: drvinstaller_X86.exe OR drvinstaller_X64.exe OR drvinstaller_IA64.exe ( Try to Install All) Only one will likely install.

    Click the Square cube [ ] icon on the left side of LiveSuit window - Select the location of the New ROM ( .img) you downloaded earlier.

    UPDATE:
    Power Down Your Tablet (Your tablet must be off during theLiveSuit process. )

    During the LiveSuit process, you are listening to make sure your computer PC has Detected your tablet (a Little BUMP sound)
    So turn the volume UP on your computer PC to make sure you hear the little BUMP sound.

    NOTE:--- If tablet starts during the next step it won't work. You messed up. Just LongHold Power Button to Shut Down (Power Off) you Tablet

    With Power off on Tablet: PressHold Volume+ Button ----- Plug USB into Tablet (Still holding Volume + button--- Tap Power Button a few times 5 to 10
    (EXAMPLE: If you are Right handed: Hold Volume+ with Right Hand --- Plug USB in with Left Hand --- Tap the Power button 5 -10 times with Left Hand)

    When you hear a little Bump sound on you PC --- Release both Buttons Immediately!

    The little BUMP sound means SUCCESS!!! --- The Flashing process will start.

    A PopUp Window Appears -- Choose Format "YES" Are you sure: "YES" Format

    The flashing process starts. Takes about 3 minutes to complete ... Leave the USB plugged in

    Your Tablet will Restart (Leave USB plugged In. ---- Takes 5 -10 mi
    nutes to complete --- DeskTop appears on your Tablet --- (FINISHED !!!)

    May be a silly question but, are you powering down or just going into standby. I had this problem and finally realized I was just hitting the power button (standby) and not holding the button until the power off screen came up....just asking cause I did it.

    MID9742-8
    Hey, You say you fixed up location (which I believe because I think it worked with the browser) but does maps work? Play won't let me install it, says not compatible with my Samsung GT-P6210 (I have a MID9742 but I'm guessing after this custom rom that's how it reports it's self to the market) Would side loading it work if I found an APK somewhere?

    Thanks for the great work with the rom, It's more stable, still not perfect but way better than before, I get less of those "has stopped responding would you like to force close)

    coby cyros mid9742
    hello, thanks a lot to all who finally did root possible for this device !!! now its work perfectly, but as mavermc mentioned not all applications can be installed from Play market because incompatible with Samsung )) . Is it gonna be fixed in a future or it is another way around to install apps? I`ve got problem even with booking applikations even after trying download from web site.

    One more question, my friend has Cyros MID8042 on Android 4 as well, can it be rooted using one of the present custom rom from 9742 or 7042 ?

    Thanks again.
