    I have a Coby Kyros MID1042 that has a corrupted Superuser.apk

    I have attempted to reset to factory and to re-root using ADB. This has failed, because the file already exists and all of the rooting tools (and manual attempts) to copy the file will not overwrite the existing. I am able to boot the tablet as normal and I can access the system recovery, but I cannot use any of the custom roms because they fail signature verification. I cannot upgrade the rom manager because I can't get root.

    So....my question is this....does anyone have the stock rom for the MID1042 that will pass signature verification? Or any other rom for that matter that will pass?

    Use adb to root your device, then use adb to replace Superuser.apk.

    It's absolutely does not work. I do know what I'm doing. The problem is that it will not overwrite any files that already exist, and I cannot erase them without root access. Here's an example of the commands issued...

    adb.exe push data /data/local/tmp/
    adb.exe shell chmod 0777 /data/local/tmp/mempodroid
    adb.exe shell /data/local/tmp/mempodroid 0xd7cc 0xad27 sh /data/local/tmp/root.sh

    I also attempted to use the -f flag to force the overwrite, but that doesn't work.

    Oh....and the root script...

    busybox mount -o remount,rw /system


    cd /data/local/tmp
    busybox cp su /system/xbin/su
    busybox cp reboot-recovery /system/bin/reboot-recovery
    chmod 755 /system/bin/reboot-recovery
    chown 0:0 /system/xbin/su
    chmod 6755 /system/xbin/su
    busybox ln -sf /system/xbin/su /system/bin/su


    busybox cp Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk
    chown 0:0 /system/app/Superuser.apk
    chmod 0644 /system/app/Superuser.apk

    ok so you aren't rooted, you need root to remove /system files.

    It was rooted...the files are now corrupted...hence the need for original post.

    Unless you know a way to force an overwrite while rooting?

    rooting has nothing to so with Superuser.apk, you must be root before you can even push the Superuser.apk.
