-------------------- Try This :
Press and hold .. Back, Power & VolUp for 15 seconds. Recovery mode?
Press and hold .. Back, Power & VolDown for 15 seconds. Recovery mode?
Other combinations ???
Hmmm odd. I don't actually have the tablet yet as I am waiting to buy it if it's able to get playstore working. Anyways the thread I got that from is here, and he says it was for the MID7042. I assumed the MID 9742 would be the same just with a bigger screen.
