    Ok, I used this initially to root: [​IMG] coby_root3.zip (637.6 KB, 46 views) from this thread: http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...rmware-dumps-coby-generation-3-devices-2.html on my 9742

    I have root via Root checker... I successfully loaded this: cfw_coby_7042_4.0.3_0.1.zip onto my wifes unrooted 9742 and hers is good to go, mine however will not start using the same process with live suite. How do I unroot or flash cfw_coby_7042_4.0.3_0.1.zip now that mine is rooted? thank you for reading this

    It doesn't matter. You would use the same method as the live suite, when you choose yes and yes at the prompts, will completely reload the system.

    is there any other way to load cfw_coby_7042_4.0.3_0.1.zip like rom manager or something? I'm doing the exact process for mine as I did for my wifes, not 2 hours earlier...

    Hi, I really appreciate your work. I was wondering if this ROM for Kyros 7042 would work for Kyros 8042? Thanks in advance.

    I think that Steev needs to have the dump still for the 8042 to create the image. Not sure if anyone has submitted this for him.

    Anybody else having lockup/crashing problems with this?

    I've seen a bunch of lockups since installing it. Most of them required a hard restart, and just now I had it reflash itself on restart because something was corrupted.

    I've had it happen in several apps, but 'play' may be the most common offender.

    Firefox was in the foreground with the extra bad crash that just happened.

    I'm not running the very latest version that's in this thread - will install that just in case something relevant changed.
