    so you are telling me that you downloaded vampirefo's recovery for MID9042 tab and flashed it, but when you try getting to recovery, you see the stock recovery and not CWM????

    if so, try perhaps downloading it from another link?
    but make sure you really have the MID9042, it shows it on the back.

    flashing the livesuit image over writes everything, meaning it deletes the flashed CWM recovery.

    yes, 9042_recovery_signed is a compiled CWM recovery for MID9042 and can be flshed through stock recovery.

    Yes exactly

    You are right, I should have tested it before, but now it is too late!

    Yes, it is written MID9042 on its back

    Yeah, I know

    Anyway I managed to revive my tablet by using LiveSuit

    By the way I am thinking about the warnings in this thread :
    READ FIRST: Development Index and Root Utility
    And by considering this warning :
    Now that I used LiveSuit, I must never ever ever root my tablet, right?!

    The warning is about using the root utility. Coby changed the hardware on many Gen 3 tablets without any version designation (i.e. coby model 7042 version 2) so livesuite images destroyed more tablets than it helped.

    Since livesuite overwrites everything on the tablet, all drivers are lost.

    So, now that Coby is no more, Identifying specific versions of tablets becomes more important that ever. Everyone should perform a system dump and upload it along with the build date for identification purposes.

    Coby tablet owners, note the build date for your tablet. It could be useful in restoring your tablet later.

    @ tpaine
    Thanks for the explanations
    But I didn't get a definite answer
    I want to make sure rooting my tablet will brick it
    Considering I used LiveSuit on my tablet
    Also after using LiveSuit there is only one problem with my tablet
    The camera don't work
    It says it can't connect to camera
    Is there anyway to fix it?
    But then again in comparison with boot loop problem this on is better!
    And where can I find out the MFR date of my tablet?

    I do not kmow for certain how your tablet will react to rooting. Seems to me it wouln't be a problem, but you have a good (mostly) livesuite image so if you have problems, flash the image again.

    Fixing the camera may be possible. Check out the 9042 system dumps for different camera drivers.

    You are very lucky the camera is your only problem.

    So no need to worry about bricking the tablet as long as there is a working LiveSuit img for the tablet?
    Since I have a working LiveSuit img for my tablet, I can mess up with it as much as I want without worrying about brick issue?!
    I want to test rooting / installing custom roms / etc ...

    But then again I am still worried about this warning :

    Thats right, you can always revert to the livesuite image. You will be no worse off than you are now.

    I installed this ROM by using CWM :
    9042 - Download - 4shared - kahrloz paz
    But I don't see any change in my tablet!
    And here is the info from "About tablet" :
    Model number : MID9042
    Android version : 4.0.3
    Kernel version : 3.0.8+
    Build number : 20120828.130802
    And still the camera is not working!

    I am curious if I perform a Factory Reset from CWM what will happen?
    What will I lose? Root? CWM? Custom ROM?

    Factory reset clears data and cache. You will not lose system files, root and recovery are unchanged.

    Does it revert to former ROM or Original ROM?
    I mean does it wipe out the custom ROM?
    As I said I don't see any change on my tablet
    How can I find out that I am on the Custom ROM?
    And can you please give a little more info about fixing the camera?

    How did you make this ROM?
    Is there any tutorial on how to convert boot.img, bootloader.img, recovery.img, system.tgz to this kind of ROM which can be flashed directly from CWM?

    see this is the "stock" rom meant to help you go back to the factory rom, and the reasong i did this rom was because the livesuit image didn't have the camera working.
    My camera wasn't working under the livesouit image, so i went to CWM recovery's "mount and restore" and formated system, data, cache, sdcard, and flashed my stock rom.

    as to how i made it , well i watched somebody else's rom to understand the zip structure ,
    $Untitled.jpg

    now, i uncompressed system.tgz to get the system folder, and boot.img is boot.img.............

    and meta-info is the so called "commands", you need to know where boot.img belongs to and how to mount and unmount system in order to flash it.... but if you are trying to compile for the MID9042 you can always use this zip's META-INFO
