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"

Is this just to root the device? And if so do you have the links for stable roms and gaps?

This roots but to flash cmw you must enter the last 2 line manually through android term emu on the tablet. for some reason the bat can't get su I'm trying to fix it. Sorry for the late respones guys. So.. run the bat then open it with notepad and manually do the lines on your tablet. Should work! Ima try and fix it asap.

Do you really have gapps going? Did you just use the normal Gapps from goo-inside.me ?

Got it all figured out, but thank you.

Gapps works great, not laggy at all. Love being able to use a mouse, keyboard, or controller

Hi PimpinEZ -

I tried this on my Colby MID7042 running from Win7 x64 and I don't think it worked. I do not see the super user app on the device and when i type "su" in the emu, it gives a me an "unknown" response.

I tried installing BusyBox from 1Mobile and it failed to install stating that it couldn't find necessary files, etc.

It says all 7 files pushed, 0 files skipped. How can I else verify the root or resolve?

Thanks

I resolved my issue. I had to install adb drivers first. Thanks for all this. This is awesome! I am creating my backup and next I will try to install the gapps. Is there a link to install gapss w/o a custom rom?

Actually folks, i lose my root every time i reboot. Any ideas how to solve?

Happened to me also. Just have to figure out how to run the script correctly with LiveSuite. Once you do that, you should get Gapps+Root+Recovery.

sk8rgeek, where did you find a stable ROM with all that? I looked at the above attached thread and it looks like some folks feel that the ROM is not stable.

On a side note, after some fiddling I was able to get the root to stick (kinda). It stays but I have to update the SuperU binaries upon every boot (annoying but manageable when I only need it).

I could not get CWM to work correctly. It only recognizes my internal sd, not external sd. In addition to that it only recognizes something like 400 MB free on the internal SD though there is close to 1 GB free. This is resulting in a failed backup every time I try due to space constraints, odd! Have you had any issues with CWM?

Default can't grab the file

Hey guys. Does anyone have the zip file PimpinEZ linked to in the first post? I can't get it from sendspace, Ilnked- or what ever the download manager is - keeps crashing.

I have a Dropbox account I could pm somebody to have them upload it to that.

I'd really appreciate it.

That's normal, you'd have to flash pimpenstien ROM for consistent root privileges sadly.
