    when ever coby releases 4.0.4 I assume the same process will be required to presere the root

    Can I get some more dumps from 7042 users running stock firmware?
    I actually don't need the full dump, just bootloader.img.

    I want to check if there are any hardware differences.

    Not without rooting.

    I'm uploading a 7042 firmware that uses the other touchscreen driver now, so let's see if that works first.

    Can someone post a gapps/google play for dummies for the 7042?., and anyone figure out a fix for the sdcard issue?

    Any chance of getting the stock image to try and see if that works?

    HOW I DID MY SYSTEM DUMP ON MY MID9742: ( Instructions originally posted for MID7042)

    FIRST DOWNLOAD THE FOUR FILES TO YOUR pc DESKTOP:

    MOTO Android Driver / PDAnet Drivers & App / coby_root3.zip / fw_dump2.zip

    1) Driver for Motorola Android Phones (aNDROID) http://junefabrics.com/bin2/MotoDriver.zip

    2) Download & Install: PDAnet Drivers from HERE: How to Install ADB Driver via PDAnet software | Top Notch Tablets
    ------------------
    3) Download and run Run root.bat file:
    http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...mps-coby-generation-3-devices.html#post206352
    coby_root3.zip (on page 2 #16)
    -------------------
    4) Download and run Run dump.bat
    http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...mps-coby-generation-3-devices.html#post205970
    fw_dump2.zip (158.4 KB (on page 1 #2)

    -------------------------------------------------

    Installed Moto Android Drivers (I restarted mu PC)
    Installed the PDAnet Drivers.

    After I installed the PDAnet Driver: Connected the USB cable, went to Settings, Development, USB Debugging checked.

    Make sure the new PDAnet APP (in you app drawer) is working. Should see icon in bottom right Task Tray on PC) If no connected right-click and connect

    Run the root.bat file (in the coby_root3 folder

    Run the dump.bat. (in the fw_dump2 folder) Script ran successfully (2-3 minutes)

    Dropped the system.tgz , boot.img, bootloader.img and recovery.img files in the same folder as the dump.bat file.

    Thank david I will look at it.

    I've also sent emails to Coby asking them to post the official firmware download for the MID7042 and other MIDxx42 tablets.
    They did post downloads for the 2nd Gen tablets, so hopefully they will again.
