Need help with mark 2 WIFI

I have a Kobo Wifi that has recently developed some odd behaviour:
  • When it boots up, it always displays "Updating the software on your eReader"
  • No books are in the library when it does boot
  • When connected to the computer, the connected drive is completely empty. Not even a .kobo directory.
  • Using the device to reset to factory has no effect. The drive is still completely empty.

I tried to reconstruct a .kobo directory with a downloaded database, but while Calibre will now see the normal free books when I connect the device, the device itself still does not see anything.

I realize this is just a mark 2, but I'd still like to get it back up and running. Any advice? If anyone has a mark 2, I'd love to get a complete .zip of your .kobo directory to try and get mine back up and running.

It's actually well worth while to reach out to the Kobo helpdesk. Quite a few people have of late been having issues with the Kobo WiFi that seem to be related to the most recent upgrades pushed to it.

I tried that. They were particularly unhelpful - tech support by checklist. "Get a paperclip and push it in the little hole in the back" was about all they had. Outsourced.

What is the internal storage? Is it a microsd card inside?

If anyone has a kobo wifi and can help me with a zip of the .kobo folder it would be helpful.
