    Still a noob here.

    Rooted my 7042 but could not get Google Play to work. When I would tap the icon it flash like it was loading for a split second and then go back to the main screen.

    So...I broke down and tried rooting again using LiveSuit and the cfw_coby_7042_4.0.3_0.1.zip method and here we are again. I can get the tablet to boot up about once in every 5 times but when I try to turn on USB debug the tablet crashes so I can not connect to the computer using PdaNet.

    I think I managed to back up my files this time using steev files so they are on my desktop.

    How can I restore this thing back to stock using the SD card? What files do I need to put on it and where? I put the recovery, boot and bootloader files on the card but when I'm in recovery I don't see any files.

    Will this work if I can't enable usb debugging? Everytime I've tried to do that the tablet crashes.

    usb debug is for a usb cable , wifi apps don't use cables, they are wireless.

    So yes it will work.

    If I can't get wireless adb to work is there a way to restore by putting files on the sd card?

    sure, you can do it via terminal on tablet, move files via file manger.

    Finally found an apk file for adbwireless and copied it over from the computer to the tablet. Installed it but everytime I try and start it, the tablet crashes. Seems everytime I try and start something that wasn't originally installed on the tablet it crashes. This leads to 5 or 6 reboots just getting it up and running again.

    Any suggestions?

    Do you have a file manager with root permission or a terminal app that is working? And root that is working?.

    It has ES file manager (Pretty sure that's the name, I'm at work now without the tablet) installed. The tablet is rooted but not stable. When it's running I can move files back and forth from my PC.

    Ok as long as you have root and can move files. place the recovery.img in /system then make a script copy and paste if you want, use other than notepad as it doesn't write correctly.

    #!/system/bin/sh

    if busybox test ! -f /system/recovery.img; then
    echo no /system/recovery.img
    exit 1
    fi

    cat /system/recovery.img > /dev/block/nandg
    sync; sync; sync

    echo done



    save as install-recovery.sh place /system/etc/ set permissions then reboot this will install recovery, after full reboot, you can boot into recovery via volume up silver button on power, release power when you see coby.

    once in recovery you will have adb, push one of my roms to sdcard and use cwn to factory reset and install rom.
