    Hi there,

    thanks a lot, got CWM installed on my 9742. Same problem here, screen is upside down, but booting into recovery mode from adb worked.
    My device is rooted now, backups are made, but stupid question of a newbie: how does CWM help me to get Google apps running?

    You use CWM to install the Google Apps. Step by step instructions are here. The apps package I used was gapps-ics-20120429-signed.zip, found at Goo.im Downloads - Browsing gapps .

    thanks, traveller1701, worked fine. But after having installed a dozen apps from google apps I ran into the next problem. This gets a little bit off-topic here, but maybe you have already solved this problem:
    I'm not able to install google maps or chrome beta since the mid9742 is not in google's list of supported devices. According to the hints I've found on the web one only has to change
    ro.product.model
    ro.product.manufacturer
    in /system/build.prop
    I've done so, setting manufacturer to samsung and model to GT-P7500. I've cleared data and cache of Google Play Store and rebooted but I could convince the google play to re-read build.prop, I'm still getting the old device info when trying to download chrome beta.

    Any idea what else has to be cleared or what to do to go to another device id?

    Setting the things you did changes nothing. The fingerprint has to be changed. I set my fingerprint in build.prop to a Dell Streak 7 and have had no issues with maps. Google Earth is a different story, likely because of the lack of GPS chip, GPU, or both. I can't comment on Chrome as I use Opera Mobile.

    ro.build.fingerprint=dell/dell_streak/streak:4.0.4/IMM76/eng.den.20120603.153428:eng/test-keys

    EDIT: I spoke way too soon. My edit of build.prop didn't work. Yours should, if the video I just watched on YouTube (see below) was any indication. I personally will get the model number of the galaxy tab 7 or 10.1 and edit mine to see if that works.

    On the Play Store Maps complains that it's not compatible with the 9742, but that is because the Coby tablets are not Google authorized devices. The only effective solution I've found is to keep your changes in build.prop and use a modded verison of the Play Store app to remove the restrictions.

    Check out this thread: Modded Google Play Store at XDA-Developers. Download the file labeled "Vending.3.5.19.noupdate.norestrictions.nosig-aligned.apk".

    your build.prop don't stick cause in /system/bin there is a file that reverts it back to stock, file is called preinstall.sh

    you can do several things, delete it or edited it.

    edit this line

    $BUSYBOX cp /mnt/nanda/vendor/system/build.prop /system/

    add # in front of it and save.

    should now look like this

    # $BUSYBOX cp /mnt/nanda/vendor/system/build.prop /system/

    Bastards.

    I honestly didn't know about that. The Dell Streak does something similar with a file Dell named "install-recovery.sh". In the case of install-recovery.sh, it overwrote the existing recovery with the stock one on every boot. Fortunately it didn't affect root. In this case, they have the build.prop stored within a hidden partition in the memory and this file sends it back.

    Good thing I did a nandroid backup. I'll have to update that backup, and a couple others.

    Many thanks Traveller1701 and Vampirefo for the recovery and .zip file to get this done, along with the batch file with adb included to make root and recovery soo easy! Only way it would have been any easier is if you had included with Windows adb driver folders to install the "android" device for adb.
    Vampirefo, i've appreciated your work since the sdx-developer days with the samsung moment, and I'm extatic to hear that you are developing for the Coby Kyros!

    Has anyone heard anything about the roms from Tipstir over at www.kyros-tablet-zone.teamtalk.net?

    Has anyone used the pre built roms by Bulldog?

    As a followup to my earlier replies to this thread, I got the build.prop straightened out. At the same time I added a few "fixes" to the build.prop to improve a few things: battery life, Internet, and streaming video. And apparently, just as my 9742 does not have the line in init.sun4i.rc to block superuser, it also apparently doesn't keep a copy of the default build.prop in the boot image. My customized build.prop sticks around following boots, which is a good thing.

    Fixing the build.prop though didn't solve the other issue of having certain apps (e.g. Facebook, Maps) register as incompatible with the 9742. However, I found this thread which explained how to fix that problem. I followed the instructions in that thread and all is good.

    I've attached an updated version of the zip.


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

    Regarding the batch file, I used what was available. That batch file assumes a working knowledge of ADB, including installing the correct driver (out of three choices) after connecting the Kyros to the PC. Adding a routine just to install the device and driver is rather pointless, especially as you only have to do it once. I made things convenient since the commands no longer have to be typed out. It's not a substitute for knowing what in the heck you're doing.

    EDIT: Updated zip file, removed mention of problems with updater script.
