    HoldIng down Volume Up and The home key Down, and pressing the power On Until coby splash screen got me into recovery mode. Hope It helps.

    Power cord was also plugged in, but that shouldn't matter.

    So I was following the instructions and now I am stuck. When I put the SD card into the pad it says it is there and the size and usage. When I use the ES File Explorer (came installed) to install the Z4root.apk I cannot see any of the files on the card even though it shows SDcard and location. If I try to go up it drops me out of the program. Am I doing something wrong? The card has pictures on it and I cannot see them either.

    Okay, SuperOneClick will not root the Coby w/ICS currently. There has been further discussion using a different method:

    INSTALLING GOOGLE PLAY ON COBY MID7042, MID8042, MID9042, MID9742, MID1042, MID10245 TABS
    ( This is a Generic "ALLWINNER A10" ICE CREAM SANDWICH TABLET )
    ( "ALLWINNER A10 " is the CPU that runs the tablet)

    Here are some instructions for Installing GooglePlay on an ALLWINNER A10 ICE CREAM SANDWICH tablet.

    The downloaded file contains the files needed to install GooglePlay on your Coby ( MID??42) Ice Cream Sandwich Tablet which is really just a Generic "ALLWINNER A10" IceCreamSandwich Tablet.

    Download the following file to your PC Desktop > Unzip the File > Find the ReadMe file and follow instructions. Download "IceCreamSandwich-4.0.3-Google-Play-Script.7z" from HERE

    -------------------------------------------
    """" If you can not unzip the file, Download the free 7Zip Program. from HERE
    Install 7Zip program to your PC. Then Right-Click GooglePlay Script file you downloaded above and Extract To: the choice that matches the filename """"""
    Open the ReadMe File and Follow instructions.


    Alternate Download Method: Right-Click and SAVE AS
    Free Cloud Storage - MediaFire

    I have not tried this yet as my pad is less than a week old and I am not ready to Brick it yet :) Until I become more familiar with the system, I have Amazon and 1Mobile loaded and between those two I have plenty of Apps to keep me busy for awhile.

    To get to recovery vol + and the back button (the silver one that used to be a HOME button) then while holding those two hold power until the COBY shows up. That will take you to revocery on the gen 3 7042.

    I got my 7042 last week...IMHO google play isn't necessary. I've gotten lots of great apps from amazon app store, where I downloaded Netflix for free, and it runs almost flawlessly, with just an occasional hiccup, but that could be my internet service and NOT the device itself. Angry birds runs without a hitch. There are tons of free apps and many paid apps if you don't find it for free. I am VERY happy with this tablet, and with all the apps at amazon. My HTC Evo View has access to google play, and I don't see any disadvantage with the Coby's lack of access.

    Try it!

    what web site did you download these files from ?

    I have not figured out how to use the built in es file explorer I did download one from 1mobile and that worked ok, need to get more familiar with how this OS works and how to start apps and kill them

    THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH SUPERONECLICK (Except for the fact it wont work to Root ICS Tablets, YET)

    Most/Many Hacker Tools and Exploits (used in sites like XDA and this site) will be detected by Virus/Trogan scanners as potential threats.
    In order to Root most devices, you have to Defeat / Exploit the device's Locks and Security that are set up to keep you from
    Rooting the device to gain access to the System file folders.

    Again, the very essence of a Hack is to Out Maneuver or Defeat the devices built-in protections, HENCE, -- The Threat Warning.
