If he can get the build 538 to work, and get around the thing being stuck at the first screen, maybe that will get around it. I did read somewhere in the forums about someone resurrecting a cybook stuck at the first screen( is that the 'splash' screen?) but I can't remember what exactly they did--it involved a sequence of button pushes.
I did that a while ago - in both directions - on my old Netronix EB-100. First had problems putting Build538fmt onto it and then had problems re-installing Netronix firmware. But by the time I had gone through the Build538fmt a second time, I was an 'old hand' at it. Of course, that's been MONTHS ago...
