SuperUser is like the Administor User on your PC. It allows you to make changes to your system that are otherwise Restricted. Most tablets/phones Restrict the Systems level files. That is where the Android Apps are Installed. So if you can gain acces to the Systems Level Files, you can > Make changes> Add / Delete Apps> Etc.
----------
TRY THIS - CLICK on the SuperUser App you installed on your MID9742
Grant all permissions and download busybox if asked. ??? Did it work?
What happened

IF so, Run RootChecker Again.

Confused

This tablet is a muthafugginpaininthears ! Ok, I'm having different problem running .bat file from my gateway lappy, win 7, 4 gig RAM, bla, bla. I run the bat file and it seems to be flashing page after page of "failure to xxxxx" or whatever the messages are. I then continue directions on reboot, open MARKET app and it hangs for about 15 seconds before force closing. After that it continues to force close. I already had gmail installed and it works. Am going to try to unistall market and try bat file again. Will report results.

----- THIS FIX DID NOT WORK ----

I noticed that both SoCoolAZ and Steph___ had already installed some google apps before trying to use the script. --
Maybe a Full Factory restore may help the script to work.
Then Download and Run the GooglePlay ICS Script.
---------------- UPDATE


The downloaded file contains the files needed to install GooglePlay on your Coby ( MID??42) Ice Cream Sandwich Tablet which is really just a Generic "ALLWINNER A10" IceCreamSandwich Tablet.

Download the following file to your PC Desktop > Unzip the File > Find the ReadMe file and follow instructions. Download "IceCreamSandwich-4.0.3-Google-Play-Script.7z" from HERE

-------------------------------------------
"""" If you can not unzip the file, Download the free 7Zip Program. from HERE
Install 7Zip program to your PC. Then Right-Click GooglePlay Script file you downloaded above and Extract To: the choice that matches the filename """"""
Open the ReadMe File and Follow instructions.


Alternate Download Method: Right-Click and SAVE AS

If you already have GooglePlay installed -- try this: resetting the application by going to "Settings > Apps > PlayStore > Force Stop > Clear Data (then Restart tablet)

Some People Believe that the Coby IceCreamTablets may Be Pre-Rooted (Shipped Rooted)
Lets Give It A Test. The RootExplorer App is used to Navagate and Make Changes on Rooted Android devices. If RootExplorer works, then the device is rooted. (Right ?)
Download Root Explorer from Here: Ndroidware: Root Explorer (File Manager) v2.19
Install RootExplorer. Open Root Explorer.
Do you see the SYS folder ? SYSTEM folder? Can you open the folders? If so, you are Rooted.
.
is the app "busybox" present in either folder ... /system/bin -OR- /system/xbin ??

No you can not use the Installer. -- I Updated in RED Above
( this is a special version of the vending.apk }
YOu have to use the RootExplorer to Do It Manually (Do not use Installer)

When you open Root Explorer does it say "SuperUser Denied? or Superuser Granted?
When you open superuser app, does does root explorer appear (does any other app appear)
Doublecheck where BusyBox is installed system/bin or system/xbin

----- THIS FIX DID NOT WORK ----
BusyBox doesnt seem to be comunicating with Superuser and Root Explorer

Try to download the app "BusyBox Installer"
Download BusyBox Installer,BusyBox Installer 2.0 Android download | 1mobile.com
And install BusyBox to the /System/xbin Folder,
----------------
Restart Tablet RootExplorer and see if anything changes.

If no changes, try to reinstall the SuperUser App
http://apkpl.us/tools/superuser
Then Restart tablet and open RootExplorer Again. ???? Any Changes

Finally, if all else fails
Download and Reinstall RootExplorer from here:
http://www.1mobile.com/root-explorer-94072.html
See if anything changes

Well that settles the notion that the Coby ICS Tabs (Allwinner A10) are Pre-Rooted when shipped.
It seems that most solutions require rooting. While there are some rooting scripts out there, none seem to be stable (each has some residual problems). Too Risky. May Brick Tablet.
That might not be a problem if we could figure out how to get the Coby ICS Tabs (Allwinner A10) into Recovery Mode in order to revert back to the original if the rooting goes bad.
Ill keep trying to find out how to put the Coby ICS Tabs (Allwinner A10) into Revovery Mode OR find a stable Rooting solution.

I found this site with some more information on Allwinner A10 tablets:

----- THIS TABLET IS NOT PRE-ROOTED ----
----- THIS FIX DID NOT WORK ----

Please hold on as long as you can. This appears to be a really good tablet and a great price. I'm willing to keep trying, if you are willing to hold up before you return.
How much time to you have before you have to Return?

Hi all, new here. Was thinking of picking up one of these tablets but doing research to see if I can get google play first. I found this article. It may help some of you get it working, let me know if it does! Also has anyone played netflix on this tablet, does it play well?

Your link refers to a generic process for Coby Tabs that exixted before the new Ice Cream Sandwich _ _42 Tablets. The only reply says that process did not work. I would not try it.
Also, on the first page of this thread, HexDogbone, said the z4root did not work on the Mid9742.

I found this on another forum, about getting the tablet into recovery mode.

"I also am having trouble with google play.
Managed to get tablet into recovery mode while plugged in. Any way to root it from there?


Hold volume up button and home button while pressing down power on, released on coby splash screen."

Some older (pre-ice cream sandwich) tablets had physical buttons for Home, Menu, Back. The MID9742 has Back, Vol & Power buttons. So that older recovery method wont work --no physical Home button.
-------------------- 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.

@Fors78 -- The person doesnt actually mention the tablet name in his/her response. The MID7042 does not have a Home button. See Manual . Only Pwr, Vol & Back buttons.

Test To Figure Out How To Place MID9742 or MID7042 Into RECOVERY MODE.

@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? ???

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!

Netflix does work. Until Google Play works, what you can do is email the APK for the Amazon App Store to yourself. The Amazon App Store contains Netflix and lots of other common apps, though of course the Google Apps are missing, as well as Facebook and a number of big ones. But I was able to pick up 80% of what I needed through there.

Good luck!

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: techsupport@cobyusa.com
