Nate, don't do it! BTW, is it the Rocket eBook
or REB 1100
This website and instructions are for REB1100's that have somehow become 'gridded' i.e. internal firmware is corrupt and unusable.
The aim of this website is a last ditch effort to salvage one's non-functional
REB1100. This has been attempted by others here (Dr. Drib
and ROBERT J. SAWYER
) with varying degrees of success.
While the REB1100 and EBW1150 appear identical, they are not. For one the screen on the REB1100 is B&W while the EBW1150 is 16-grayscale. There once was a program by Gemstar to 'swap' REB1100 for GEB1150 (now rebranded to EBW1150) but that had to be done at the factory
and invovled upgrading the screen and firmware.
To use the REB1100 firmware with the EBW1150 has not been tested before.
Are you a leader or follower?
My two cents worth...
