    Hopefully this will be an easy one given I cant find it anywhere. I rooted and installed CWMR on my 9042-8. Proceded to try and install the reccomended gapps build from goo.im it said everything went well then I rebooted the tablet and poof. No Gapps. Any ideas? I have read the stickies and searched here, google, and xda and have found nothing of value. Maybe someone would be kind enough to upload their ROM with Gapps installed already so i could just flash to it?

    This is a common problem with newer coby's. Coby has added to much bloat so nothing else can be installed. The solution is to remove enough bloat to allow gapps to install. However many MB the gapps is you trying to install you need to remove that much bloat first.

    One trick you can try if you are real close on system space is to delete the options folder in the gapps zip before you apply it.
