    [ROM] Custom ROM for Coby Kyros MID9742 - Rooted, deodexed, Google Play

    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:
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Flashing instructions:
    - Download [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

    Re: [ROM] Custom ROM for Coby Kyros MID9742 - Rooted, deodexed, Google Play

    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.

    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.

    Re: [ROM] Custom ROM for Coby Kyros MID9742 - Rooted, deodexed, Google Play

    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
