    Good news, David, your wife's firmware dump is different than Joe88's!
    It appears my suspicion was correct, Coby did use 2 different touchscreens.

    With this firmware dump I should be able to get your touchscreen working.

    @swalker5906 is MIA since about 5:00 Eastern Today.
    I don't want to do anything to my MID9742 until swalker5906 reports back in.
    (I guess that he ran into problems trying to run ivanz Google play script.)

    I tried ivanz Google play (install) script and it did not work for me. Fail, fail, fail, etc (then again, I haven't installed Steev's Fix)
    ( yes I am kinda rooted. Can run Root Explorer, delete/rename/ change permissions on files in the system/app folder )

    If you click the "UserGuide" button in LiveSuite there are instructions for installing the USB drivers.
    But if I remember right mine were installed automatically (On Windows 7)

    Hmmm, well I did look at the users guide. It appears to be outdated but it also makes it sound like those drivers would take place after hitting update.

    Windows itself is seeing a usb device that it can't find a driver for so it's not putting it active in device manager. Live Suit can't see any device to load a driver for because Windows isn't make the device active due to a lack of driver.

    That is essentially what I'm trying to figure out. When I hold the volume button, insert the usb cable, and hit the power key until Windows dings for the usb device going active, it then tries to find a driver, doesn't and dongs, banging it out in device manager.

    ---

    On the flip side with the tablet running all three drivers load for the tablet.

    So I have no idea what driver Windows is looking for when you place the device is upgrade/download mode.

    Is there a way to package the img file as an update.zip that could be flashed from recovery?

    Well I defintitely have no idea what I'm missing. Stuck with an unknown device entry once I enter upgrade mode, so LiveSuit doesn't see a device and says Jump to update mode failed.

    Those of you who installed Steev's rooted Image to your MID9742 or MID7042 Tablet

    Can you take a minute and do a step by step of the installation process.

    Some people viewing this site are unfamiliar with the tablet.

    So a step by step of what you did after you downloaded Steev's image file. That would be very helpful.

    Thanks

    doing a "upgrade" from livesuite results in an encryption failure message after flashing the new rooted rom
    it will just do a factory reset anyway and erase all your data
    so just do the format

    anyway using the rooted firmware from my dump, I can confirm its working fine and rooted after the factory reset
    super user is installed and I can change that option in root explorer now to r/w

    So essentially I did exactly what was at the start of the thread. Although I could not solve my issue until I downloaded a different LiveSuit package. I grabbed the Novo 7 1.7.2 update package and used LiveSuit 1.07 from there.

    I installed PDANet
    Then used the newly downloaded LiveSuit package.
    This time when I went into upgrade mode it in fact loaded all the drivers just look it should.

    Update to the rooted version of the 7042 package -- reboot

    From there yes you do get the encryption failure, do the reset it prompts and after that completes you are rooted.

    I grabbed the latest ICS gapps package Goo.im Downloads - Downloading gapps-ics-20120429-signed.zip

    Then extracted it to a folder.

    I loaded Android Commander (as Im not an adb wizard)

    I used AC to push the entire set of apps from the gapps package \gapps folder\system\app into \system\app on the tablet (you may want to either remove the stock gallery first or strip the gallery apk from gapps when you push it or you end up with two as one is gallery and one is gallery2)

    Then use adb or AC to push the voicesearch library lib.voicesearch.so from \gapps folder\system\lib to \system\lib on the tablet

    reboot and open playstore..

    set account info and you're off and running.

    had to load gmail from the playstore... that version of gapps does not include it but it loads fine from the store.

    But it works and synchs.

    Voice search works

    Titanium BU is working...

    etc
