    [ROM] Custom ROM for Coby Kyros 8042 - Rooted, Google Apps, 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.

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

    Hi i'm posting this rom, based on the 8042 firmware dump posted by Shinisuryu , it is rooted, and loaded with google apps and of course google play.

    I also fixed the search function which crashed, i had to remove GoogleQuickSearchBox.apk wich was causing problems, this solution should work for the other roms, just install titanum backup and delete it.

    Downloads:



    Link removed.

    Flashing instructions(taken from steev):
    - 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 cfw_8042_ics_root_gapps_v01.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 must use LiveSuite 1.0.7
    LiveSuitPack_v1.07.rar


    Write if you run into problems, i have been testing the rom for a couple of days before posting, so it should be fine.

    Thanks, what initially drove me to make this rom is that i messed up my 8042 /system trying to load google apps, after that i looked everywhere for a rom or a dump, a couple days after user Shinisuryu posted his 8042 dumps, and finally managed to make the rom (after finding out how to), hope it stays working pefectly, if you or anyone find any issues please let me know so i can fix them, so far i have'nt found any issues on mine.

    Thanks, hope you enjoy as i do.

    Sokar,
    Thanks, I had been looking for a way to root my new coby 8042, to get google Play market. First found this forum, then your thread. Just tried to get the rom from sugarsync, but is says that it is no longer available. If you could repost I would be most grateful.

    Thanks again

    Please, answear me something: this version of Android is still treating the real (and physical) SD Card like "extsd"??

    It's remains the ICeCream (4.0) Version of Android?

    Thanks for any answear.

    Its about the extsd or 4.0 Ice cream?

    This "extsd" is a pain in the a$$!
