    Thanks, like an idiot I tried installing Steev's 7042 ROM with Google play on the 9042. Brick. Does anyone know where I can get a working ROM to run through LiveSuite? What occurs is the screen flickers and it won't boot up. I'm guessing this is due to the screen having a different resolution. of course I wasn't smart enough to back up etc..

    Can anyone help?

    PS: Thanks to all you guys out there doing these roots..my other daughter has a 7042 and Steev's root works awesome!

    Without a dump of the 9042's files, there's no way to create a ROM image, whether it be the stock ROM or a deodexed version with Google Play.

    While highly unlikely you'll get anywhere, you may want to try getting a hold of Coby and see if they can help you out.

    Nothing can be done unless someone uploads a dump for this version.

    I think that Traveller1701 is working on this right now.

    Edit:
    Ups I think I have made a mistake, because Traveller1701 does not said explicitly that he is working on this.
    He only said that have a post to update but my bad english makes me understand all wrong.

    well seeing you are posting dumps, you are already rooted, you can't dump a non rooted android.

    Ok I just looked at your dump, you are clearly rooted, and your dump is perfect, permissions intact, so you clearly know how to create a restore able dump.

    Seeing a few more users now have this tablet, I might make a recovery for it from there you can install gapps, and playstore.
