    KYROS 7042 - Windows - Root/CWM Recovery- No Livesuit Needed

    Kyros-7042-Root-CWM.zip

    Download Kyros-7042-Root-CWM.zip from Sendspace.com - send big files the easy way

    I'm trying to make this easier for newbies.
    Credit is do to Vampirefo, Steev, Saurik, Fun.

    This zip contains a root exploit thanks to Steev, and a script for pushing CWM recovery thanks to Vampirefo.
    This is a one click deal! Just extract the folder and choose your .bat file.
    root.bat is used to just gain root and should work on other gen3 Kyros.
    root_recovery.bat is used specific for the Kyros 7042, and will root the device as well as push CMW.
    I've included SuperSU for theme flow reasons.

    Update...
    If you get the following error

    Installing CMW recovery...
    /data/local/tmp/install-recovery.sh[8]: cannot create /dev/block/nandg: Permissi
    on denied
    done
    dd: can't open '/dev/block/nandf': Permission denied
    reboot: Operation not permitted

    try changing these lines in the root_recovery.bat
    adb.exe shell sh /data/local/tmp/install-recovery.sh
    to
    adb.exe shell su -c "sh /data/local/tmp/install-recovery.sh"

    It is good practice to make a stock backup (Dump) before doing any modification to your Kyros Tablet.
    Root maybe required. Credit to Steev.

    Pimpinez,

    Posted on the other thread last night and we had both bricked our 7042's. Did this get you back up and running? I'm at work right now and can't download your links but any additional info you could give would be greatly appreciated as far as running the file? Please reply or send me an email.

    Thanks again,

    Dan

    Speaking as a LINUX amatuer, I don't think you managed to speak to newbies. I'm mad to have the Play Store on my Kyros, but your instructions got me nowhere. Could you help me out here? I get up to extracting the files, but I dunno if I'm extractinng to the wrong directory or if there's some crucial idea I'm just missing. How do I install the .bat file?

    This is for windows pc's homie! It doesn't matter were you extract the zip because it contains everything inside it; its simple really, make sure usb debugging is enabled on your tablet and your adb drivers are installed. Then just double click the root.bat or the root_recovery.bat. it runs by itself and your device should boot into the CWM recovery when complete. Within this recovery you can flash roms without using livesuit by placing zips on your sdcard. However, vampirefo is the only one who has a .zip file currently... but you can replace the boot.img inside the 7042_boot.zip if your using a tablet with different touch drivers. furthermore, you could also replace his 7042_update.zip with your system dump and customize it from there. For example, adding the gapps to the system dump app directory.
    btw .bat files are scripts for the windows command prompt (cmd.exe)
    maybe i should make a video

    How can I make a rom from the stock backup files? I don't know how to restore from them. My tablet is the 9742-8. I'm trying to solve it so I can help the others here too.

    Shini,

    Please start a 9742 thread and don't hijack a 7042 thread.

    Can't you solve it with livesuite + the right rom?

    yeah, but what buttons can i use to boot into the cwm that this installs? the idea is to avoid livesuite. it may be the source of the problems i was having
