    There are no Livesuite images, and neither Vampirefo nor I recommend using Livesuite as that software causes too many problems. Get the 1042 dump from here, then follow Vampirefo's instructions here. The dump is the original firmware, extracted from the poster's device.

    This requires using Clockworkmod. If your device is so bricked that you can't get Clockworkmod on the tablet, you have very few alternatives available to you. Most likely you will have to contact the place you purchased your tablet from and beg them to exchange it.

    I'll correct my post, but the sentiment is the same. If you can't access CWM, you have no chance to survive. Make your time. For all your base are belong to us. ;)

    Contact the place you bought it from and ask to exchange it.

    Hi Eddy, I hope not to be too late. In the link's below are three stock rom format in "Img" that can be used to revive your COBY 1042 with a LiveSuite. For me it worked!

    sun4i_crane_mid1042_120701(8GB)V1.img - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download - Mike Hard (this Work for me)

    sun4i_crane_mid1042_120820Phip-V1.img - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download - Mike Hard

    sun4i_crane_mid1042-CrazyHamster-120808-v1.img - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download - Mike Hard

    After you revive your Coby, install CWM.
