    Does anyone know how to force a MID8042 into recovery mode ?? I picked up a 8042 on eBay, got it to boot on the second try and did a factory data reset. The tablet is stuck in boot mode. I can rest it or turn it off by holding down the I/O button.

    However on reboot it displays the Coby logo, then Android and gets stuck there (for hours if I leave it...)

    Any suggestions ?

    Thanks.

    The tablet went back to Coby for warranty replacement or repair. It never worked right, repeated encryption errors and lockups and still have the factory protector on the screen. We will see how it works in a month. In the meantime I have the 1126 running ICS 4.0.3.

    I've done that but did't work.
    Then I've done like this, and it worked:
    1- Charge the device
    2- Unplug from charger
    3- Keep pressing BACK and VOL+
    4- Put a clip on the side reset button for +- 5 seconds
    5- When the android cartoon apears, press VOL + or - and select the option you want
