- Reboot into Windows
- Install a ext3 filesystem driver into Windows (http://www.fs-driver.org/).
- Plug your card into the card reader, copy image and you're done.

You might need something like 7-zip to extract the files from the .tar.gz you download.

Sorry if I am not more clear in the steps, but I am not a Windows user, but these might be enough to get you in the right direction.

As a side note I'd be interested to know from someone who has done the update via SD card, afterwards can ebooks be loaded onto the ext3 formatted SD card and read by the Kobo? Or does the Kobo require FAT formatted for ebooks and ext3 for updates? Essentially would one need to keep a dedicated SD card for updates?
Cheers for this!

Is it worth making some form of instruction set a sticky?
