Coby Kyros 1042 help
Thursday 21st of June 2012
I made the mistake of not having a backup of my firmware, and then used the live method to put a 7042 image on the 1042. FYI, you don't see anything, other than it powering on and off. It seems to work a bit better with the 9742, as in i can see lines and some apparant action. however it still does not work.I"ve tried the SSD firmware option, which didn't work.BTW I used the latest livesuit 1.07 on 64 bit. using the format option. Does anyone have a 1042 restore firmware they can share, or is there a 1042 mod coming up? I'd be happy to donate.Thank you.
Apps not loading on Coby Kyros 1042
Monday 29th of October 2012
Hello. I have a Coby Kyros 1042 that will no longer load Netflix and the Weather Channel app and 1 other app that has never loaded but should. I'm not sure if this happened after a reset or just out of the blue. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Netflix several times. I'd appreciate any help that anyone could offer. Thanks.

I still have to dig into the Manta MID06 and the Protab XXL. If I find that either of these seem to have the same hardware as the Coby 1042 I'll report here.Just to share. I tried the Yarvick, Protab2 and Goclever on my 1042. They all booted up. Touchscreen did not work. and when using a usb mouse to navigate the screen, wireless did not work either. I spent some more time trying to get the liveimage to work. I can't replicate an

I have figured it out and you have not. Please let him try it. I think that it will work and you are just being rude. This issue usually happens when you have Google Play or the Android Market downloaded incorrectly.
Coby Kyros 1042 suprisely bricked
Saturday 03rd of November 2012
This is Frank Garrett. So my brand new tablet got bricked with no reason (...just for fun dammit) and i have already googled absolutely everything that could possibly help me but with no results. So it brought me to making this thread - the last thing i am trying to do before throwing out the tablet. Well my tablet just got really laggy once and i tried to delete some applications that i've installed there, and after i did reboot it as usual. But it didn't launch as it should. Instead it gives me the "COBY" logo and that it - it just stays with this freaking logo all the time till it gets turned off. So i've tried to get it into the Recovery mode - but with no result either. It either does not doing anything but showing "COBY" logo, or just gives me black screen. So i have absolutely no idea what to do (adb?, livesuit?) or is it even possible To Do anything, because i'm not sure if its totally broken or else... Help me please.
