    I have been trying to install the android play store on my Coby Kyros MID9742 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Tablet, but everytime I try to open the Play Strore it crashes instantly. I was wondering if anyone knows how to fix this. Thanks in advance for any help.

    I'm having the same issue. This GetJar thing is awful. Can anyone figure out how to get Google Play to function on here?

    Im having the same issue. Ive been in touch with a pretty root savey friend and he's looking into the matter. I believe you will need to root the os but not sure if its possible with whats out there now. z4root does not work. also have tryed a couple of others. I did run into a pretty lame vid posted on youtube that stated that all he did was re-install Android ICS. But again the vid was lame so not so sure im going to try it. Any help out there would be very much appreciated.

    To help in understanding, the issue is that the vendor is not allowing or is not allowed to install the google apps we all have come to love and adore like GoogleTalk, GooglePlay, etc...

    Because it's intended to be sold in China, Google has nothing to do with Android devices here, they have their own way of doing things e.g. Chinese app stores. Did you buy it from Ebay or a Chinese wholesaler or something?

    I would suggest following the instructions for Installing Market on the Coby Kyros MID7127 on Youtube. Uploaded by thekwa . Works on many Coby tablets.


    On Youtube search for: "Android Market MID7127"

    --THIS FIX DID NOT WORK--

    Just tried Superoneclick, and it doesnt work. It crashes at Shell rooting device... Step #7 "waitfordevice". And ive tried it several times. Any other ideas?
    I did get a chance to install Netflix through 1mobile.com but the system lags out bad. Not sure why. Doesnt seem to be CPU issues. It be nice to see if rooting fixes it.

    I installed the Netflix app from amazon.com and haven't seen any lag. You might try it that way and see if there is a difference.

    I'll give that a try Tx2Stepn. Thank you.

    I'm stuck on the Step 7 freeze as well. I'm unable to download earlier versions of SuperOneClick as there is a problem on shortfuse website with those links. Let me know if anyone finds a fix. I'm eager to get this rooted, but figure I will just do the amazon work around for now.

    No luck with anything before 2.2...it says the android version is too new. It still seems that the 2.3.3 gets me the closest, with the same hang-up on Step 7.

    Frustrating. Also, I see my windows security is detecting a threat...I assume this is one of the adk packs I unloaded?

    Lots of people having problems with ROOTING Android versions above 2.3.3

    A few people reported success by Repeating after it hangs. (Do not reboot) (Leave tablet connected)
    ( using "auto" Exploit )
    When it hangs on Step#7, Close SuperoneClick
    --- open Task Manager/Applications/Highlight SuperoneClick/end Task
    --- Open Taskmager by typing " taskmgr " in the RUN or Search Programs window
    When SuperoneClick window closes, just open SuperoneClick again and ROOT
    Repeat Seven Times / The ROOT may Finish in one of the tries.
