    The rooting process for the 9042 is identical to the process for the 7042, 8042, 9742, and 1042. In Generation 3 Development is a sticky with a rooting tool. Use that tool, root your tablet, then make a dump of the system. Currently there is no firmware dump of a 9042, and thus no custom ROMs and no Clockworkmod; please, once you have made your dump, upload the zip to a download service like mediafire so that it can be made available for developers to use.

    I've been reading these threads all evening trying to figure out how to root my device also. If I can get it rooted, I'll gladly upload the firmware dump if it's still needed.

    If you've been reading these threads, you haven't been reading them thoroughly enough. If you're running Windows, there is a utility I have available in the Development Index sticky found in Generation 3 Development, which I mentioned in this thread already. You'll likely need the drivers however, which are found in the sticky in this forum.

    I also have a Coby mid9042 and I am also trying to root it and get the market but with no luck. I've tried everything including Super One Click which hangs at step 7 waiting for device. I went to the sticky and followed the instructions to the best of my ability. I really need someone to walk me through this. Just remember you're talking to Forest Gump!

    I'm not a mind reader, and telling me that you're having problems without telling me where you are having problems is a waste of my time. I need to know exactly what you did, and where you are having problems in order to try and help you.

    I'm sorry, I don't want to waste your time, I was just looking for some assistance. I've tried every different option, on every thread on the internet to attempt to Root my Coby mid9042 including Super One Click root which hangs at step 7 waiting for device. I even went to the website that is advertised to root any android device. I paid them the $29 dollars and all they did is set me up with Super One Click root. I followed all of their instructions through all of their emails but I got the same result. I eventually got my money back because they just kept repeating their emails. I have USB debugging checked and accept apps from different sources checked but Super one click just doesn't work. I tried running a .bat file that I found on xda developers site and that didn't work. I've rooted my old phones before with Z4root but I've never dealt with a tablet. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I would even be willing to pay you the $29 dollars if you could resolve my issue.
