Hi Parkher, Thanks so much for coming back to me in so much detail.
My Device is a version 1.0.04.11081... hence I thought that I was good to go, but from what you mention in your thread, it would appear that not all versions are created equal.
I have the US version with 6 dictionaries ( 2x ENG, 2 x FR and 2x ES), sadly not German, Dutch or Italian ( let alone chinese)
How can I work out whetherI have the modern ( bad ) version of 1.0.04.11081, or if I am doing something stupid on the copying process of rescue package. i clearly dont want to try going any furtehr until I know I have a way back .
Other info I know about my T2.
