can't i just reinstall the original firmware, then use the updater?
of course, that's if the original is available somewhere. I checked sony's site to no avail.
You can edit a file in the Reader's original installer to run (otherwise it detects it already has the latest firmware. I don't remember what it was, but it's in the forums if you search.
Try running the firmware flasher issued from Sony. It's definitely still available and you would have needed it to follow these steps anyway.
