You can root the PRS-T1 by copying certain files onto the reader and resetting the device. The details are here:

The method with "resetting the device" is what I meant by "booting the e-reader with the Home and Menu buttons pressed". That would probably work, but I'd like to get the reader_msc tool to work for this and other purposes too.

I've managed to make it work now, had to do two things:

(1) Installed the "Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable MFC Security Update" from Microsoft. This is a 5-megabyte file from their web site, dating from 2012. I ONLY installed that, not the older version, since it seems that this version replaces the older ones, but with some security holes plugged.

(2) While reader_msc.exe itself then runs, the other component it uses, DeviceAccessor.dll, requires msvcr100.dll which belongs to a version of MS C++ later than 2008! Putting a copy of this dll (which I got off of a newer PC) in the same folder as the rooting tool finally got it to work.

I've now run the actual rooting and it seems to have worked!

Good morning.
Is there anybody that still uses this reader?
After more than two years I would like to root my T1. Is there a way to do a backup of my settings\bookmarks\notes\? Because I think that rooting will delete everything, right?
Thanks in advance.

not sure if it works with this tip, be sure to ask someone experienced.
