How do you factory reset if the firmware won't load?
On my Kobo, it happened once (unwillingly by simultaneously pressing the button below the screen and holding the power button for more than four seconds. Then I was back to the original firmware.
I re-installed 2.1.1, which works well on my machine, and took the opportunity to clean up my library and manage it only with Calbre. At first, as I'm an old-fashioned computer user, I copied books directly to the SD card, but it was not a good practice, because of possible file names and metadata issues.
