I've just seen the "Mini Teardown" where it said about the snap on back.

So I thought, as I can't see any screw holes, I'll see if the Glo has a snap on back.

and it has, so I took it apart and found the internal 2Gb MicroSD card, which is partitioned as below:

Code:
partition 1 : ext4 - 268MB - named "rootfs"
partition 2 : ext4 - 268MB - named "recoveryfs"
partition 3 : FAT - 1.4GB - named "KOBOeReader"
partition table is actually as follows:

Code:
Number  Start   End     Size    Type     File system  Flags
 1      9961kB  278MB   268MB   primary  ext4
 2      278MB   547MB   268MB   primary  ext4
 3      548MB   1965MB  1417MB  primary  fat32        lba
it looks like the first 9961Kb of the disk contains the u-boot image. Not sure how I'll handle this.

rootfs has a ".macaddress" file which looks like it contains the MAC address (surprise, surprise!)

I've made copies so that I can study them a bit.

any more info and I'll post it here
