to no avail. My reader refuses to even start the update sequence. I tried downgrading to 2.1.4, but that also failed to initialize. I then tried placing the firmware folder in the main KoboeReader folder, and even placing the zip file in the .kobo folder. None of these worked. What am I doing wrong?
