    If the image in question was a Livesuite image, and I suspect it was, these tablets are all permanently bricked. Clockworkmod and Livesuite do not play nice with each other, and while some people have had luck getting Clockworkmod on a Livesuite modified tablet, many more have permanently bricked their tablets.

    You are likely in the second group.

    when these happen i was trying to install the cwm from recovery and then it bricked, so i google my problem and came across these image file "cfw coby 9742 _4.0.3_0.1.img" which i flashed using exactly the live suit, after failing to get video i tried some other img files for that tablet but these time using PhoenixCard_V3.0.9_20121211 and getting the same result it loads but black screen. using that method i notice that the sd card didn't had the same amount of MB as the img file not even a MB so i thought maybe it doesn't give video because there's no sistem in it, it only flashes the loading part may be I'm wrong.

    oh!! and thank you for your reply Traveller.

    Using Livesuite was your problem, along with not finding us first. ;)

    The ROM image you downloaded was from 2012, and it was never updated to take the hardware changes Coby made to the tablets into account. In the unlikely event you can get Clockworkmod installed I do have a nandroid backup I posted to the forums that can be used to try and restore the tablets, but the chances are good that even if you do get Clockworkmod successfully installed and restore the tablets with the backup, you'll never get the tablet to be 100% functional.

    Personally, with the age of these devices I'd simply sell them on ebay for parts.
