How To ReBirth your Bricked Coby Tablet: MID9742

@cyrius --- Hopefully, you can Use precedure Above to Un-Brick your Coby Tablet ( MID9742.)
(You Bricked your MID9742 while trying to root, Now it Just hangs when trying to start)
1) See RECOVERYAbove: Try option 2 (wipe data/factory reset) should restore to factory condition.

2) If that doesn't work, you need to replace your Damaged System Image. (Operating system Files)
Hopefully someone can figure out how to Back up the system image from their Healthy MID9742 tablet. Then Email it to you (or upload to temp storage site) (its only about 3MB in size). ...
Then you can move the BackUp image "Restore Image" ( restore.img ) to your tablets internal SD Storage or MicroSD card. --Then boot into Recovery Mode, select the restore.img on the External Storage and the tablet should Replace your Damaged System Image with the Healthy System image and start normally.

ALSO: Contact Coby and ask them to email you a copy of the stock System Image file for the MID9742. -- Call or email Coby. 877-302-2629 or 800-727-3592 --- EMAIL:
