Default Kyros 7042-Windows-root/cmw recovery

Kyros-7042-Root-CWM.zip

Download Kyros-7042-Root-CWM.zip from Sendspace.com - send big files the easy way

I'm trying to make this easier for newbies.
Credit is do to Vampirefo, Steev, Saurik, Fun.

This zip contains a root exploit thanks to Steev, and a script for pushing CWM recovery thanks to Vampirefo.
This is a one click deal! Just extract the folder and choose your .bat file.
root.bat is used to just gain root and should work on other gen3 Kyros.
root_recovery.bat is used specific for the Kyros 7042, and will root the device as well as push CMW.
I've included SuperSU for theme flow reasons.

It is good practice to make a stock backup (Dump) before doing any modification to your Kyros Tablet.
Root maybe required. Credit to Steev.

Update...
If you get the following error

Installing CMW recovery...
/data/local/tmp/install-recovery.sh[8]: cannot create /dev/block/nandg: Permissi
on denied
done
dd: can't open '/dev/block/nandf': Permission denied
reboot: Operation not permitted

try changing these lines in the root_recovery.bat
adb.exe shell sh /data/local/tmp/install-recovery.sh
to
adb.exe shell su -c "sh /data/local/tmp/install-recovery.sh"
