Thumbs down Manually update? Vox won't update

Hey Everyone,

So I have a Vox here and whatever I do, it won't update to the newest update. It always fails.

Doesn't matter if I go through about > system update, or go through the update notification. Fails every time. "Corrupt update file".

Factory reset does not actually remove my files. If I try the "real" factory reset (when off, holding +, then press power, keep holding + and wait for reset prompt) it says that the system update failed and cannot reset.

Android version: 2.3.3
Kernel version: 2.6.35.3
Build number: imx51_bbg-eng 2.3.3 GRI40 eng.
CAN.20111027.172304.39765 test-keys

I've also tried removing the back and pressing the button top right of the battery, this doesn't help either! Also, if I delete an app, when I reset, it's there again! I don't know what's up with my device. Can anyone help? Is there a way to manually put an update onto it?

Any help is appreciated, thank you!

By the way, when I try the factory reset, it says:

Unable to Start

Something went wrong while starting your Kobo eReader. Please restart by pressing the On/Off button, and then update your Kobo software.
