Unhappy PocketBook 613 stuck at firmware update

Hi,

hopefully somebody here can help me.

The board search, Google and the PocketBook website as well as the device manual didn’t help me with my problem.

I tried to update a PocketBook 613 with Firmware 3.3. The Device is stuck at “Updating Software” and does not answer to any input anymore for hours now.

The Power button (like any other button) does not do anything.

“Reset” causes the display to flicker once but doesn’t change anything.

Does anybody know how I could reset the device to factory settings? Any other ideas?

Thanks for your support :)

I have never seen a 613, but if I were in your shoes I'd try to disconnect the battery

It's quite a new one similar to the 611. I guess it shall sell in the "low price" segment.

Unfortunately both sites are in German.

Pavajeje you can do as follow:

1. As Paola says: Remove battery (maybe you already done it )
2. download official Pocket Book 15.8 firmware from here
3. Unzip the package and copy SWUPDATE.BIN file in the root of the SD card
4. Insert the SD in the reader and switch it on
5. During the boot process press and hold OK and FORWARD buttons simultaneously until you will see a "Firmware update" message on the display

At this point firmware update procedure should take place so follow instructions.

Hoping this helps!
