Hope so. Does it show Reader switched to recovery mode?

My Reader was last night 30 miles away so I can't try it myself.

I had to HR to get the Connect store to talk to mine, so I have tried it, but it was a while ago. I'm trying to remember ... I know it clears out your user (book) files ... and I'm pretty sure it did say something different on the screen, but I can't specifically recall what it was.

I think that procedure only clears DRM registration files, and doesn't reflash any filesystems (where would it get the fs images?).

I think I'll trust your (much more informed) guess over my own on this, igorsk.

Unless it had a backup flash or ROM. Depends on the hardware architecture, I guess. My co. uses Axis Etrax processors, which have a built-in recovery mechanism - you can force the processor into network or serial reflash modes by closing certain circuits. I don't know if there is a similar way of getting things to normal in the Reader, it wouldn't be too expensive to put something like a 16MB extra flash chip in there for full recovery to a known "original state"...

You can (I can't) test it - run restore and check if the changes in cramfs gone.

There is no EULA and I would not recognize any EULA if there was one. EULA's on my property are null on inception. This reader is hardware and my property. Period

NOW EULA's on software I DO recognize but ONLY in relation to IPR not PPR (IPR is Intellectual Property Right while PPR is Personal Property Rights)

IE I own this reader and I OWN the software on it Lock stock and bond for my own personal use.

EULA's do not apply as far as I am concerned until its NON personal IE I decide to sell it or release something to the public etc..

As for hacking. It simply means you can't use the sony connect software. The Hardware is yours to do with as you please.
