    How do you unbrick a bricked 8042 after update from factory Android OS 4.0.3 to 4.0.4?

    Post by ronwizbot on Mon May 02, 2016 12:59 pm

    I purchased a Kyros 8042 with a functional Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS 4.0.3.  I wanted to upgrade it to 4.0.4. and then get Google Play working on it.  I did the CWM and thought I backed up the old OS but forgot to put a SD card in the tablet.  After I upgraded to ICS 4.04, the touchscreen stopped working.  I get the locked screen but can't unlock it.  I tried to find the backup with thw CWM but the upgrade must have overwritten it.  I tried reloading the new OS without any change.  I cleared all caches and it still fails to enable the touch screen.  Without the touchscreen I can't enable theUSB for the ADB to load that way but I do have a functional CWM to load via the SD card. 

    Does anyone have one or both of these to help me fix this problem?:

    1. Kyros 8042 ICS 4.0.4 touchscreen drivers upgrade.zip?
    2. A backup of the factory Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS 4.0.3. that I could download and reinstall in my tablet so I can get it operational, again?
    3. A working 8042 that they would like to swap with mine so they could tinker with this one?

    Please let me know.  Thank you.
