Had the exact same problem when rooting my reader yesterday after repartitioning, then I realized I had the "OS Firmware" directory containing the recovery mode software on the microSD card root and the reader's LED was blinking orange Removed the microSD card and rebooted from a PuTTY console, logged as root, reboot command on command line with gserial.inf serial gadget installed, so I really was in rescue mode (I think a forced shutdown is OK). Then re-executed flash_reader.bat and everything was OK this time.
