Trouble with Gen3, tried downgrading

Hey all, My wife has had a Gen3 Cybook for a long time, and recently its been freezing and the battery has been dying over one night (like its stuck on)
400mhz, 512meg storage.

She bought a new kindle, but I wanted to just restore this one to factory state, and the wiki suggested formatting the internal memory with fat32. So I did that and seems the freezing is gone, but now I can't put any books on it, it can't find any. Its constantly asking me to select the language and sometimes the case colour? It never saves it.

I tried also in the wiki to load the 796fmt firmware just to perhaps let it wipe it clean and restore a factory state, but no matter what I do I can't load that firmware. I can load the 2.1, or 1.6 firmwares all day but it won't downgrade to that one. It ignores the file.

Can anyone help me get this going again?

How can a grayscale device ask for case colour?

Hah I dunno, it asked a few times about selecting a cabinet colour to choose from, 8 or so colours.

Inssomniak, be glad that it won't let you downgrade to the 796 firmware.
Load Mobipocket firmware 1.6, buy a new battery and try to solve your problems here. It's much more stable than the epub firmware.

Right now neither 1.6 or 2.0 ePub work properly. Neither let me load a book onto either the internal ram or sd card. It can never find it and both continuously ask me to set the language.

The internal ram looks like it's having a problem. Try running a checkdisk.
Is Fat32 the proper format for it ?
