Question Kobo update gone wrong, Need Help

I am a proud owner of a original kobo. (2010) yesterday went to kobo site and downloaded a update which wipe my kobo clean I am unable to use it.
I am looking for help. It's old I Know but was simple and easy to use even with a button to turn pages.
Is there any way to fix it. Get the old Firmware. Or Do I Give up and Buy a new one. ?

If you think I should get a new Kobo. Which Model - Kobo Aura H20 ?
Have a Lager Collection of Books. Would like to have a reader that will allow me to import the collection and not harass me to go to the STORE AND BUY.

Welcome to the forums.

Even though this is posted in the Kobo Tablet section it sounds like you have one of the early eInk readers (not sure what year they first did tablets). Hopefully someone in the know will see this and be able to help, but in the mean time here's another thread which may be helpful...

Original and Wi-Fi were both released in 2010. There are threads in this forum to obtain firmware for the Wifi. If it's really an original (or frankly even a wifi, personally, though your mileage may vary), and if you can afford it, I'd really recommend updating to a new Kobo - the display, speed, firmware features etc are out of sight better. H2O if you want the larger screen and/or the waterproofing; perhaps Glo HD otherwise.
