Porkupan, The problem is that it wont shut down even using the "reset button. All the Reader shows is the "thermometer" Blank and not moving. I am very familiar with rooting and updating my reader. I have never seen this problem in MobileRead. It has me stumped. That is why I brought it to the Forum.
