I did a search and found the following thread with information about the same thing. This link will take you to the thread with the two quotes I've listed below.... Hope this helps.

Then...
  1. Unpack the contents of the archive.
  2. (Optional) Replace the incuded 'new_opt.img' with an alternative one. (Renaming the new one to 'new_opt.img'.)
  3. Copy the exploded archive to the root of a SD card. (I'd reformatted mine to FAT/FAT16 - may not be required.)
  4. Check you have a "/tmp" folder in the root of the Reader when viewed as a USB device, (create one if you haven't,) then unmount the reader.
  5. Plug the flash card into the PRS-505
  6. Press 6
  7. Wait for the PRS-505 to report "Reflashing was successful. Rebooting."
  8. Take the flash card out of the PRS-505
  9. Wait for the unit to reboot
  10. Enjoy

Demo went away and I'm able to update to newest version. just follow the instruction. Remember, after you unzip the files. Don't drag the folder to the sd. Drag the contents and folders in the first folder to the sd. If you need any help let me know.
