    Hi everyone! I would like to use this CM9 ROM with my Coby 7042 tablet found here: http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/coby-generation-3-development/46413-cm9-coby-7042-a.html

    I already have a custom ROM installed. It’s the one I found here: http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...y-kyros-7042-rooted-deodexed-google-play.html

    I installed that ROM using LiveSuite. Sadly, when I used that ROM, I wasn’t able to play games like Temple Run etc while other games like Agent Dash worked fine and the ROM itself was more stable than the stock one.

    Firstly, I did read the sticky post here: http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...ead-first-development-index-root-utility.html

    And I found it to be very confusing as it said that once I’ve used LiveSuite, I couldn’t use ClockworkMod. So, does that mean I won’t be able to use any of the ROMs available here anymore?
    I don’t have a backup of my stock ROM.

    I’m a noob. So, any help in this regard will be very much appreciated.

    Thanks a lot!

    I'm a Computer Science major. So, technically I'm not a moron. I'm just confused. LoL! =p

    Your tablet is running fine, to install cw recovery at this point might cause problems, or it might not, this has been explained many times. If you want to risk making your tablet unusable go ahead, it's your tablet.
    No support will be given trying to undo what livesuite might have done to your tablet, is not worth investing my time on.

    Thanks a lot for the information. I appreciate it.

    Is it possible to get it back to stock firmware from the firmware dump provided by members in this forum...in this specific case...the firmware dump from Joe88?

    I don't know anything about your tablet nor about Joe88's tablet, Coby has made at least 2 versions of the 7042, if your tablet and Joe88's are the same , then it should work, if they aren't the same then the dump wont work, even if your tablet and Joe88's are the same the dump might not work, depends on exactly what livesuite did to your tablet.

    take the livesuite image a part, and you can see what changes livesuite can and does to a tablet, that cw recovery and a dump can't repair. you might get lucky and everything turns out just fine for you, or the opposite could be true.

    I could fix the tablet if it was in my hand no matter if livesuite was used or not, but that requires time, desire, knowledge, and understanding of Linux and android. Once you get to that point, you wont be asking questions, you will be trying to answer them.
    Good luck.
