I got recovery mode to work! The button sequence is as described (volume up + back, whilst holding down power until Coby logo shows up).
Here's a screenshot for proof:
Hopefully now we can proceed!

@stef234237 and @cyrius and Others -- TRY THIS on MID9742: (Turn Tablet Off First)
1) Press and Hold.. VolumeUp & Back button ...
2) while still holding above .... Then Press & Hold Power button.
3) When COBY Splash Screen shows, Release all buttons. .... Are you in Recovery Mode ???
(Try other combinations -- But you must PressHold Power Button LAST)
Please post your results. Does any button combination work? ???
