Sony firmware update 1.0.05.12140 released today for European PRS-T2 disables jailbreak functionality (ability to boot from SD cards) on the "virgin" PRS-T2 units. I would recommend that no one installs this update without first installing the jailbreak. If the jailbreak was installed prior to "upgrade" to 1.0.05.12140, this package should recover ability to boot from SD. It can be installed in the "usual" manner (no SD card required, unpack on a PC, run "flash_reader.bat").

The units with 1.0.05.12140 installed over non-jailbreaked firmware, or pre-installed at the factory, are not hackable at present time.

Hi

I have a big problem here. Just bought an EU PRS-T2 which has firmware 1.0.02.08090. I want to update it to 1.0.04.11081 to root it but I cannot find this update file anywhere anymore. On Sony's site it's only possible to download the latest update 1.0.05.12140 which breaks the jailbkreak.

Can someone send me (via PM if you prefer) the 1.0.04.11081 firmware update for EU device so I can install it?

Thanks
Roby

Hello,
First post here. My wife had this reader for christmas. Unfortunatelly, we did the update. Are we stuck forever or is there any chance ? For the moment, we just want to install some apk like a real facebook app and maybe a rss feed reader.
BTW, thanks for that thread, it has interesting information.

So, what happens? Does the jailbreak go through and reset the reader, and the reader then doesn't show the "Updating" screen? Or does the jailbreak script fail? You have not provided enough information.

Since you had the older version of the firmware, I suspect the jailbreak should still work. Recently Sony has started selling the readers with patched up Recovery, which makes jailbreak impossible, but I doubt that your reader has that.

You need to have an SD card in the Reader. The script is copying the files onto the READER drive, which is wrong (not going to work). The Jailbreak requires the micro-SD card.

It shows shutdown

look at the flash_reader.bat, and maybe you can hack it.

The root stuff should go onto the READER drive (you can take the SD card out).

Looks like there is a weird problem with the driver that causes it to mistake the READER drive for SD, and vice versa. Don't know why. Haven't seen it anywhere else.
