It may not brick the tablet but it certainly won't resolve your problem. You want to take a look at the system dumps in the development forum and use them to try and restore your tablet. Keep in mind that because you used Livesuite, the chances of permanent damage have increased.

I read your Disclaimer
Disclaimer: There have been incidents recently (as of 10/22/12) regarding devices either becoming bricked or being rendered so unstable as to be virtually useless. The common denominator in all these incidents is that the end users installed custom ROMs using Livesuite and then proceeded to use the root utility to install Clockworkmod. Given ADB's track record of reliability with millions of Android devices, the only conclusion I can draw from this is that Livesuite is the cause of the problem. Therefore, if you have used Livesuite to install a ROM, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO USE THIS UTILITY. Using the root utility on a Livesuite-modified tablet may cause damage to the firmware which may not be fixable by any means, even with a system dump. Should you choose to use the utility despite this warning, you do so at your own risk.

This is what afraid of i already used the livesuit.

Once you use Livesuite you're generally stuck with it, as it rewrites absolutely everything, including the partition layout. If you want to risk restoring using a system dump, read through the thread carefully, as I provide a link within it leading to the post on how to restore from a system dump.

Thanks for the reply, I did root the tablet using the procedure in the thread rooting the tablet is a success and installing the 9740 recovery signed too. After t hat it boot fine as expected now and I turned off the tablet and check to boot in recovery mode by pressing volume minus + power button it did went well in to recovery mode and its fine then I select the reboot the system now by pressing the power button. It boot up to android icon only and tried so many times to boot and failed. Is the tablet bricked? May be you have some suggestion to un-bricked it or if I will flash it with custom firmware
cfw_coby_9742_4.0.3_0.1.zip using livesuit or maybe you can recommend any ROM that I can use using livesuit. I know my only option now is using livesuit to revived the tablet.

Your device is in a bootloop, i.e. soft bricked. You can try restoring the system dump you used and see if that resolves the issue. However, other than that there isn't much advice I can give you. Reason being you used Livesuite, and we don't support Livesuite here.

With that said, if you ARE going to use Livesuite, you MUST use firmware appropriate to your device. The 9742 firmware you are thinking of using will certainly brick your tablet as the internal hardware of both devices is radically different.

I am ready to install the system dump I downloaded at this site when this thing happened. Sorry but what I mean is when I press the power to turn on it power up but the android icon pop up not Coby as used to be and it stop there. I tried to to go to recovery mode the tablet stuck on green android icon. I am thinking of using ADB to boot to recovery,When I plug the USB cable to PC it wont recognized it nothing happened. I don't know what to do now?
