This isn't much, just a slight modification of the stock firmware with root, Google Play, and a few other changes.

WARNING:
This firmware was tested on a Novo 7 Elf and it worked fine, but you are solely responsible for its use.
If it bricks your tablet you've been warned.

Features:
- Gapps + Google Play fix
- Rooted
- NetworkLocation service fixed (to pinpoint your location in apps like Google Maps)
- Deodexed for easier modding/theming
- Samsung Galaxy tab fingerprint for better app compatibility

Downloads:
Version 0.1:
cfw_coby_9742_4.0.3_0.1.zip ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

Flashing instructions:
- Download LiveSuite ([Only registered and activated users can see links]), this is the flashing software for A10 devices
- Run LiveSuitePack.exe (a bunch of files will be extracted to the current folder, so best to create a new one)
- Now run livesuite.exe
- Choose "SelectImage"
- Choose the coby_kyros_4.0.3.img
- Now you need to put your device in upgrade mode, to do so:
1. power off the device
2. Press and hold any physical key except the power key on the device(ie, press and hold Vol+ key, still holding in 3 and 4)
3. Connect the tablet to your PC via USB cable
4. Repeatedly press the power button until a popup dialog shows on your computer screen
- Now follow the on-screen instructions

Windows 7 64-Bit users, it has been reported that you need to use LiveSuite 1.0.7: [Only registered and activated users can see links]

Thanks to all who posted firmware dumps and tested in this thread

I have downloaded the cfw_coby_9742.zip file several times and I keep getting an error message when I try to unzip the file. It states that it is an invalid archive.

Perhaps try another computer ?

same for me..except I get a pop up. Which I follow the instructions to and tablet never rebooted(20min), When I disconnected the USB and reconnected, it had a yellow android guy with a red caution triangle.

Finally got mine to work, I deleted the livesuite, and .img file I previously tried to use , downloaded Live suite again then after opening each of the 3 driver files (only 1 worled) I rebooted . Then tried it once more and it worked.

But I noticed there is no facebook, amazon, and a few other popular apps that arent available to download from Google play WTH?

Thank you OP for posting

Steev,
I just wanted to say thanks, you just saved my tablet!

A couple other posters have said they had driver problems with this image but my device seems fine. It's a 3rd-gen MID9742-8, and both screen and camera work fine with your firmware. The machine seems quite a bit more responsive than it was with the stock ROM, too, which is a great plus.

I did have problems with installation; with my old standby Win7-32 bit workhorse PC it simply wouldn't go, it failed to install the device drivers. However, it worked on another PC under Win7-64 bit with LiveSuit 107. In fact, it caught me by surprise, as on my machine your step 4 isn't necessary: hold down vol+, plug in the cable, and off it goes. Make sure you are ready because it just starts flashing!

Again, thanks, and I'm back to playing with my new-again toy.
