Was it rooted? I think you have to remove root before upgrading.

If you have an SD card in there, take it out. It could be a bad book.

Search for t1 freeze. E.g.

I've the same problem!

I've upgraded my PRS-T1 firmware from 1.0.05 to 1.0.07. Last week I decide to downgrade the firmware back to the 1.0.05 release in order to root it again.
I used the rescue_sd_1.0.05.
After that my reader freez every time I plug in my USB cable and wi-fi was not working (error).
I try to install the rescue_sd_1.0.06 and now wi-fi work fine but the T1 still freeze every time I plug in my USB cable.

Someone can help me restoring the T1 in order to work fine? every firmware release is ok for me now....

Second question: someone know if there are a way to authorize the T1 to the DRM without connect the T1 to the PC via USB (that does not work)?

Please every help was appreciated.

Claudio

I have more or less same problem.

As a matter of fact, I upgrade my reader to 1.0.07 and then I run rupor-update and after that I had problem with Home.apk so I tried restore-set-1.0.05.11130-us and now

1- Reader freezes when I connect it to PC by USB
2- I can not connect by WiFi

Please help me to recover my reader to 1.0.07 or downgrade it to 1.0.04 or 1.0.05

By the way in my country there is no support for ebook reader.

Thank you

Had this problem too - and solved it

you have to connect the reader in recovery (rupor-rescue) mode to a linux machine. i used debian...

in recovery mode you have access to the whole internal memory like to an external disk.

you can extract the official firmware and copy the 'PRS-T1 Updater.package' to the reader-partition of the internal flashdisk. the update can be started by pressing home and menu while powering on. (wait till the bar is in the middle and release the keys)

the problem is, that the update only installs, if the version on the reader is lower than the version of the update. there is a check built in the updatepack.

i used a hexeditor in linux, connected it to the reader-memory (sdb) and changed by search and replace manually all version strings found on the disk to 1.0.00.09010. the strings are easy to find, because they are in ASCII and readable in hexedit.

{there is a script on the diag-partition of the reader-memory (version_check.sh). you can start this script via console and see all version-strings you have to search and replace on the disk.}

after replacing all found strings i copied 'PRS-T1 Updater.package' 1.0.05.11130 to the reader-partition of the internal flashdisk once again. i rebooted the device without the sd-card and the updatepack 1.0.05.11130 in the READER partition did its job.

after this update my wifi and usb where back. now it was able to install the official 1.0.07.05070 via usb from windows pc...

do it on your own risk. it is potentially unsave to hexedit a partition's content. but if the device is already bricked, it is just a try.
