    Google Play on Coby Kyros 1042

    UPDATED NOV 2012: 100% WORKING ON MINE ON STOCK FIRMWARE.

    Instructions follow on ways to get the Android market onto your Coby Kyros 1042 tablet. None of the tools are my own, and I am just posting tools here for convenience. All credits goes to original developers!

    Tools required:

    Grab the rooter from this thread and root it first:

    ARCHIVE 1: http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/...coby_root3.zip

    --credit: Requesting Firmware Dumps from Coby Generation 3 Devices


    Backup your filesystems using the tools in same thread or through CWM at the end of this post:

    ARCHIVE 2: http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/...s-fw_dump2.zip


    Get the google package for ICS from here:

    ARCHIVE 3: http://goo.im/gapps/gapps-ics-20120429-signed.zip

    Download the files on to the desktop,

    Get ADB up and running on your machine.

    in ARCHIVE 3:

    --cd Desktop/gapps-ics-20120429-signed
    --adb push system/app /data/local/tmp
    --adb shell

    Type following inside shell:
    --su -
    --mount -o remount,rw /system
    --busybox cp /data/local/tmp/*.apk /system/app
    --exit

    Once you have transferred all those files, just reboot the tablet

    I was capable of rooting my 1042 and romdump. Then I tried to install Google package for ICS and it started crashing. So I did a factory reset and lost root and cant restore root with same method says no space left on device. Can I restore root with my rom dump? , how?

    I am new to all of this so I am sorry to bother you all. I have a coby mid 1042, I downloaded the sdk and updated as needed. When in platform tools I typed adb devices and my coby came up. Now I was not sure what to do with the root zip, I copied to downloads of tablet and tried to update as zip in recovery and all I got was it was not signed so a no go. I do not have cwm on my coby, I have not found one yet, I could use some help please. I want to root the tablet for the market and to learn the android set up. I have been looking and trying for a week now, I cant seem to find out how to do it so I have broke down and am asking for your help. Thank god my wife can't see this! Jim

    Backup your filesystems using the tools in same thread:

    ARCHIVE 2: http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/...s-fw_dump2.zip


    Get the google package for ICS from here:

    ARCHIVE 3: [SCRIPTS] - Allwinner A10 Tablets Google Play Script - SlateDroid.com

    Try if the inbuilt batch file works for you. For me It didnt work. Workaround:

    Copy the ICS directory from ARCHIVE 3 onto ARCHIVE 2

    On a command prompt from the directory, type the following to remount the /system as rw

    adb.exe shell
    su -
    mount -o remount,rw /system
    exit

    Transfer each of the files from ICS directory onto the appropriate directories:

    s1: Except framework-res.apk to /system/framework
    s2: All files OK to /system/lib
    s3: Except features.xml, platform.xml & tablet_core_hardware.xml to /system/etc/permissions
    s4: As you wish except packageinstaller to /system/app
    s5: NA

    To move the files, open a command prompt and

    adb push <local file> <android filesystem file>
    If you are unable to copy directly to system, first copy it to temp as below and then move it to correct directory

    mkdir /system/temp
    adb push file1 /system/temp/.
    adb shell
    su -
    mv /system/temp/file1 /system/etc/file1


    Once you have transferred all those files, just reboot the tablet
    I've tried every instruction but still I cannot transfer the specific files to the /system or even make a directory. I really don't know what specific adb.exe should I use. FYI I got the Superuser but the devices still cant be detected. I also type the root.bat and still doesn't work. I appreciate if someone can help me with this. Thank you

    Coby Kyros MID1042-8
    So i've successfully rooted the tab and created my dump. For Archive 3, the batch file didnt work for me, i tried every option, nothing worked. So i attempted the listed workaround which also didnt work, not even close! So i had to do it by other means. I copied all of the files to the external SD card, installed root explorer with ADB and manually copied everything over within the tablet itself. The only problem is when trying to copy the files from the s4 folder into /system/app, i get an out of memory error. Root Explorer is showing around 250Mb used on the /system partition and 1.2mb free, but some of those apps are much bigger than the 1.2mb free space. Looking through the list of apps in the /system/app folder, i cant really remove any of them because they are needed, and the few that are useless wouldnt free up enough space, so it needs to come from elsewhere... Where? How? What do i do? Any ideas?
