There's still the possibility of it being stored on another chip. @jokeyth, did you unbrick it after fiddling with the boot loader or the os?
@Giorgio: Ciao Giorgio (I am Italian ;-) ). I have made a perfect copy of the internal SD on my HD so to clone it on a bigger one that now is on my Kobo Glo. I did it just to see if it could have worked and also because it was a bit slower to load the books' cover when stored in an "external" sd. So I did not bricked my Kobo. As far as the bootloader is concerned I have no idea where it is stored... It might be on an internal flash and it might be flashed at each firmware upgrade. Nevertheless, seeing how the firmware updates are handled I will truly doubt so. Is your Kobo bricked?
For those who can read Italian here an interesting link:
