Did you do a backup of your preload partition before trying to flash mine?
Did you try to restore your original one?
What version of Reader do you have and what was the original firmware version when you bought it? Mine had version 1.0 (I bought it immediately on release).
Is it possible they modified the partition table structure after the original release?
Did you flash Rupor's full dictionaries pack?

It seems like in the meantime I was able to fix my PRS-T1 (although I was very close to taking a ride to the local Sony shop and nailing it on their front door).
I ultimately ended up rebuilding all partitions according to these instructions here: http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/PRST...itioning_Guide
One of the unnerving parts was that I found it impossible to get the correct sizes under Linux - but Putty under Windows finally did the trick.
After rebooting, I simply dd'ed the partitions again you gave me, there were no errors and I've had no problems ever since (knocking on wood).
Bottom line: "Something" screwed up my partitions. Interesting idea that SONY themselves might have changed the partition setup over time, but then again I bought my device over a year ago, so I doubt it (if that lead to all the problems I encountered, it would basically mean that it's unrootable with the standard packages out there, and I assume someone would have reported it by now).
As for the dictionary pack - yes, I flashed that one as well.
Will I root again: Gut says no, brain says now that I know it all, I would be stupid not to.
For now, however, I'm not touching anything for the next couple of months to make sure the problems are really gone.
