I made the mistake of not having a backup of my firmware, and then used the live method to put a 7042 image on the 1042. FYI, you don't see anything, other than it powering on and off. It seems to work a bit better with the 9742, as in i can see lines and some apparant action. however it still does not work. I"ve tried the SSD firmware option, which didn't work. BTW I used the latest livesuit 1.07 on 64 bit. using the format option. Does anyone have a 1042 restore firmware they can share, or is there a 1042 mod coming up? I'd be happy to donate. Thank you.
