Oh dear...
I can't really tell you what to do...I guess you'll have to contact iRex Techsupport. Did you have any unusual modifications or anything on your Iliad?

No, it was clean as a whistle, I was waiting for unbricking-and-easy-install to be in place before I played with it... and thanks for the advice, I emailed them before posting. Now it's just sit and wait... with nothing to read!!

That's nasty. i just did my upgrade and it went smooth as silk. It took less time overall than the e-mail implied it might.

Sorry to hear about your troubles.

My update went fairly smoothly. I did have to reconnect to IDS manually after the 6 steps went through (or a least I think they completed before I reconnected). The whole process went quicker than I expected although this is my first upgrade so I have nothing to compare the time to

It went smoothly for me too (this time) and faster than they said.

Ella, have you tried rebooting more than once?

Other than that, sit tight, get a paper book (gasp!) blow the dust off of it and start reading

I've tried rebooting several times, but nothing happens, except for some white lines at the bottom, several more appear and stay on the screen each time, but I can still see the upgrade page dimly.

Problem is, I've read of all my p-books, and I only read in English, getting English books here in Mallorca isn't the easiest thing...

Thanks for the commiseration, guys.

Oh, that's a pity. Did you do this update with the 2.9.1 firmware or you were lower? Anyway if you tried to reboot so far, your just escape way is contact iRex, thought.

I have just did my iliad update to 2.9.5 and the first time it did nothing, but after a reboot and new connection to iDS all went ok.

Sorry about your troubles.

@ElaHuget, you seem to have a computer there as well... I know it's not as nice as reading on e ink, but desperate times call for desperate measures.

Hi,

I haven't updated yet. I have received the ability to run third party programs or so called "shell script". If I update will it brick my device?

I did not do any tweaks in the registry as I am Linux-illiterate. (OFF: But I know Excel and Windows very well, and SharePoint server too!)

Any ideas?

LOL, thanks Neko... I might have to do that, but my iLiad has spoilt me, turning my nose up at pc-reading; plus, I spend all day on it, I work in an IT dept, by the time I get home, my eyes need to rest. :P

I already contacted Support last night, they've replied today... I just know I'll have to send it in... boo-hoo, my baby... it's too young to travel on its own!

PS: The photo is from last night, the screen is a lot darker today.

I ad the shell scripts update, I just made sure that I reverted any scripts I'd ran before I ran the update..

Restore ipdf to default, restored menu order to default, restored bottom buttons to default..

Update went without a hitch for me apart from led flashing after it rebooted itself which was fixed with a reset.. then I was able to run update again to get the extra bits that come after initial 1.9.5 update.

I also had all mem cards removed at the time of update.

Ok my iLiad is stuck at step 2 for more than 35 minutes now. What shall I do?
Is something like copying data to ram disk such a big task?

Stuck on Step 2 forever. ElaHuguet: let me join you in this topic and the camp of those who accidentally bricked their iLiad with this update.

I really share and understand your feelings. The worst thing I am afraid of is what if the update screen gets idelibly burned on the screen?

I don't think you need to worry about screen-burning...but the rate of failure with the update is alarming!
Did you have memory cards inserted? Maybe that's the problem with the failed updates?
