It is already too late. I made a connection to IDS after I re-installed the developer package, but it went wrong somehow. Now I have a frozen startscreen. When I reset the green light goes off and when I try to reflash the green light goes on again and the screen refreshes to the same startscreen and it crackles. I tried it fully charged/fully discharged. I tried to reset the iLiad while I held the downloadbutton and the on/off on the bottom (yes: three hands were needed for that). My computer doesn't recognize my iLiad anymore. So I think that is the end of the story for me. Just on the off-chance I mailed a request to iRex; they will probably not be in the mood for repairs.
Perhaps someone near Nijmegen in the Netherlands reads this and is able to help me?
