Hi I didn't make a backup because I was a bit unclear on the process. Is this a reasonable set of instructions?


--How to make a backup.--

Be careful doing this. You can completely break your device if you are not careful!

We are going to create a disk image using 'rupor' rescue, then use roadkill to save a copy of the image to your computer so you can use it later if you need to restore.

1) Download this file: http://projects.mobileread.com/reade...upor-rescue.7z

2) Extract it and copy it to the root of your sd card

3)Reboot your reader whilst holding down <home> & <menu>

4) If windows pops up a window and asks you if you would like to format a device say _NO_! This is a image of the software on your reader.

5) Download, install & open this: http://www.diskinternals.com/linux-r...VM3mr5QbBZD4_A

You should see a whole bunch of stuff mounted? Great let's move on

6)Download, install & open this: http://www.roadkil.net/program.php%3...ZRBeJNALxQE85w

Use Roadkill to copy the image It must have a size 1.82GB
