    Kyros-7042-Root-CWM.zip

    Download Kyros-7042-Root-CWM.zip from Sendspace.com - send big files the easy way

    I'm trying to make this easier for newbies.
    Credit is do to Vampirefo, Steev, Saurik, Fun.

    This zip contains a root exploit thanks to Steev, and a script for pushing CWM recovery thanks to Vampirefo.
    This is a one click deal! Just extract the folder and choose your .bat file.
    root.bat is used to just gain root and should work on other gen3 Kyros.
    root_recovery.bat is used specific for the Kyros 7042, and will root the device as well as push CMW.
    I've included SuperSU for theme flow reasons.

    Update...
    If you get the following error

    Installing CMW recovery...
    /data/local/tmp/install-recovery.sh[8]: cannot create /dev/block/nandg: Permissi
    on denied
    done
    dd: can't open '/dev/block/nandf': Permission denied
    reboot: Operation not permitted

    try changing these lines in the root_recovery.bat
    adb.exe shell sh /data/local/tmp/install-recovery.sh
    to
    adb.exe shell su -c "sh /data/local/tmp/install-recovery.sh"
    [HR][/HR]It is good practice to make a stock backup (Dump) before doing any modification to your Kyros Tablet.
    Root maybe required. Credit to Steev.

    Pimpinez,

    Posted on the other thread last night and we had both bricked our 7042's. Did this get you back up and running? I'm at work right now and can't download your links but any additional info you could give would be greatly appreciated as far as running the file? Please reply or send me an email.

    Thanks again,

    Dan

    Speaking as a LINUX amatuer, I don't think you managed to speak to newbies. I'm mad to have the Play Store on my Kyros, but your instructions got me nowhere. Could you help me out here? I get up to extracting the files, but I dunno if I'm extractinng to the wrong directory or if there's some crucial idea I'm just missing. How do I install the .bat file?

    This is for windows pc's homie! It doesn't matter were you extract the zip because it contains everything inside it; its simple really, make sure usb debugging is enabled on your tablet and your adb drivers are installed. Then just double click the root.bat or the root_recovery.bat. it runs by itself and your device should boot into the CWM recovery when complete. Within this recovery you can flash roms without using livesuit by placing zips on your sdcard. However, vampirefo is the only one who has a .zip file currently... but you can replace the boot.img inside the 7042_boot.zip if your using a tablet with different touch drivers. furthermore, you could also replace his 7042_update.zip with your system dump and customize it from there. For example, adding the gapps to the system dump app directory.
    btw .bat files are scripts for the windows command prompt (cmd.exe)
    maybe i should make a video

    How can I make a rom from the stock backup files? I don't know how to restore from them. My tablet is the 9742-8. I'm trying to solve it so I can help the others here too.

    Shini,

    Please start a 9742 thread and don't hijack a 7042 thread.

    yeah, but what buttons can i use to boot into the cwm that this installs? the idea is to avoid livesuite. it may be the source of the problems i was having

    Maybe it is the source of my problem too. My touchscreen sensor is inverted :p
    Hope you can fix it. Maybe you can try a similar solution to that used in this topic: http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...t/40568-9742-mbr-problems-such-post-here.html
    Is your usb debugging working?

    shutdown the tablet, press and hold volume up plus silver button press and release power once you see coby keep holding other two until you are in recovery.

    "This roots but to flash cmw you must enter the last 2 line manually through android term emu on the tablet. for some reason the bat can't get su I'm trying to fix it. Sorry for the late respones guys. So.. run the bat then open it with notepad and manually do the lines on your tablet. Should work! Ima try and fix it asap."

    tried this and on terminal emulator gives me this:

    error: device not found

    edit: solved

    Sorry, that was an incoherent explination...
    Here is what I have tried, and the order I've tried it in:

    1. Files are on my PC's Desktop (windows 7).
    2. Turned on the tablet.
    3. Connected it via USB cable.
    4. Turned on "USB Storage" - "USB debugging mode" already checked/allowed
    5. double-click the "adb.exe"... cmd window opens, runs scipt(s) quickly, then window closes
    6. double-click the "root_recovery.bat"... cmd window opens and says "Waiting for Kyros..."
    7. I sit here looking like a dumb@ss twiddling my thumbs... nothing else happens.

    Any assistance to cure my ignorance would be greatly appreciated :)

    Unfortunately, I have no idea what most of that thread meant...
    I am completely unfamiliar with Linux :(

    Can anyone else provide me with the specific order-of-operations for using windows to root the 7042?

    Thanks,

    Your first step is going to be install adb drivers, once they are installed and working the .bat files should then be able to work.
