    Hi.

    My friend ask me to install a GoogleApps in an 9742, so google gave me a link to a LiveSuite ROM. (Don't use it, COBY as lot's of changes in hardware).

    I flashed with livesuite, with no backup or CMW installed (I now, I'm dumm..,). The result was: no touchscreen...

    Can't recover (no backup, no clockwork).

    My only solution (I saw a lot of people with the same problem), was:

    - Using the only firmware that I have, I unpacked: see this post
    - Mounted the system image. See this for help
    - Then I used the this modules, that are in the forum. I just copy to the /vendor/modules of system image
    - Repack all again, and Flashed with my custom img

    And IT WORKED, now I have touch again.

    NOTE:
    I don't advice to use livesuite, and this is only for stupid cases like mine. ALWAYS DO A BACKUP.
    This will need Native Windows, and Linux!

    You should have read the stickies before trying anything. You would have saved yourself time and energy that you wasted dealing with LiveSuite. Nevertheless, I'm glad you got things working.
