nice work LinuxReader, maybe this will help the rooting community to come up with more universal/cross platform ways to apply updated rooted firmware packages.
Actually the boot's on the other foot: it was the rooting community that gave me the idea of doing a standard firmware update this way.

See the section titled "Installation without MS Windows" from http://translate.google.com/translat...hp%3Ft%3D21458

I just modified the procedure slightly to avoid the non-standard rooting files and just use Sony's original firmware...

I won't comment on JSWolfs (unhelpful) posts as I've already done so in another thread.

Basically, I got a lemon (shit happens) and it's at a Sony centre getting looked at as we speak. I'll let you know how it goes.

Thanks folks!
Just a note for future reference, using a virtual Windows to update the reader is not a good idea as the USB port doesn't always get the resources it needs. We've had reports of readers bricking (older models) when being updated. I would suggest following LinuxReader's directions for any future updates once you get your T1 back and working.

Fixed now

Hi all.

I thought I'd let everyone know the outcome of my problem.

I took the device into the local Sony repair centre before Christmas and got a call to say they'd fixed it a couple of days later. They had done a "factory reset" and they said it was working now. As I'd already done a factory reset I know this was not the case but you can't argue with them.

So I went in and picked it up, plugged it into my usb charger in the car on the way home and 2 minutes later it was cycling (reboot, whirly circle, reboot) again so I took it straight back and they said they would replace it this time.

With delays due to holidays and lack of local stock, I finally picked up the new reader last week and since then, it hasn't missed a beat and I'm well happy with it!

So, if your PRS-T1 is crashing and cycling it's a hardware fault and the device needs to be replaced.

Thanks all.
Terry.
