    What do you mean it didnt work installing cwm?
    Only thing left is when USB Debugging was on is restoring your dump!

    No ideal what you are saying, not enough information to even guess what you are trying to do.

    Translation: He has a 7042 and is trying to install the Play Store. He attempted to install ClockworkMod but failed, so he tried to install the Play Store using the stock recovery. Now he's in a bootloop and ADB won't detect the tablet.

    Answer to OP: Unless someone has a signed stock Coby 7042 image that can be installed via the stock recovery, or unless the other people on the forum have an alternative solution, you're pretty much screwed. You'll need to look into exchanging the tablet for a new one as you bricked this one.

    Doesn't 3e stock recovery require signed files ?

    Ok, now it makes sense.

    Yes it does. But trying to install the Play Store through the stock recovery shouldn't have done anything to the tablet. The entire point of the signature is to prevent rogue files from getting onto the tablet and screwing it up.

    His bootloop I don't believe was caused by trying to install the Play Store via the stock recovery, but by something else. Regardless, he still needs to exchange the tablet.

    Oh, and before I forget it, welcome back. :)

    Lol, thanks, tho I never really left. But I picked up a lenovo A2109, and it brought me back.

    With the reality that many of the allwinner tabs are out of warranty or soon will be, the dreaded livesuite may be the only option for many.
