Can't update to 1.0.05.11130

I have firmware version 1.0.04.12210 now. I downloaded "PRS-T1_Updater_1.0.05.11130.exe" file from Sony support page. Page says I should connect to PC, enable USB transfer mode and run the file. I did it and indeed updater detects old firmware version and tries to install new one but with no success. All it displays is "Update isn't complete. Please try again."

Some time ago I've installed EbookHome (and probably EbookReader, too, can't remember now) app from this forum. Thread: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=164707
Could that be an issue? And if it is, how to uninstall them?

I appreciate any help. Thanks.

Really no one can help?

If no one knows how to uninstall these applications, then maybe there's a way to reset firmware to pure 1.0.04.12210?

You always have the hard reset option. . .

I thought it resets only settings and books but apparently I've mistaken. After hard reset update succeeded. Many thanks for help.

I have another question about resetting the Sony T1. I currently have the newer firmware
1.0.05.11130( I updated to this when I first bought my T1) and am interested in rooting it. Would I be best off to reset it back to its original 1.0.04.12210 firmware before I try rooting it? And if so, which method of rooting would give me the best results? I hope rooting is still possible nowadays.

Seems to me this thread should be on Sony Reader Dev Corner link below.

Linux Method vs. Windows Method

I had exactly the same problem when I tried on Windows 7. I tried the .exe file with the same results as you and then tried to update through the Reader software with the same results. I figured it would be easier on Windows even though I use Xubuntu linux for my main desktop. Turns out it was easier and actually worked when I tried it on Linux! I used the wiki at http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/PRST1_Firmware_Upgrade to upgrade and it worked flawlessly!

Gotta say though, this PRS-T1 is a piece of junk, I hate it. I lost my PRS-350 while walking and began using this one. Freezes, skips pages, and loads slow, super glitchy. I really miss my PRS-350.

On the skipping pages glitch... I have found that losing patience and tapping or swiping without letting the device respond can trigger that behavior it can also trigger the "circling arrows of death" and screen flashing needing a reset to clear so if you get a book with slow page turns try and learn patience or keep the paperclip handy lol
