Could you provide this Image to me, too? I have the same model as simongigi and my Kobo is stuck after a firmware upgrade.

Thanks in advance!

There seems to be another way to fix a bricked Kobo Touch. I have the following model:

MODEL: N905C
FCC ID: NOIKBN905C
IC: 8857A-KBN905C

I bricked my Kobo after I updated it with a wrong firmware (N905B-Firmware). After that it was stuck at the "restarting" screen. A factory reset (small pinhole in the back of the kobo) would only lead to a flashing green LED, but nothing more.

So I suspect the Kobo tried to boot the wrong firmware and got stuck in this process. What I did now was:

1. Download the correct Firmware-Version and unzip it
2. Remove the SD from inside the Kobo and put it into my computer
3. Put the files inside the firmware-folder into the .kobo-Folder on the SD-Card (I'm on a Mac, but this folder should be the same for any user. If not, look it up in a tutorial for updating your Kobo manually)
4. Put the SD back into the Kobo
5. Reset the Kobo with the Pinhole-Method

After that the green LED kept flashing until my Kobo was alive again. It's fully functional now.

I hope this helps, as this method should be a lot easier than searching or asking for the SD-Image.

Excellent, but the SD card is not available with Windows when it is outside the Kobo in a card reader.

Windows only sees the first partition of a USB device. And then there are three, the first two are Linux.

There are partition managers like the free "MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition 7.8" that work in windows. There are also tools that let you mount Linux files in windows as well.

The .kobo-Folder is a hidden folder. You have to unhide the Folders in Windows to access it.

The .kobo-Folder is inside the Fat32-partition. I can't access the other two partitions on my mac as well.

Oh! I already use this software to read the hard drive of my TV decoder (Peekton PK 1750 TNT) on my PC when I want to get and keep a record.

I did not think to use it for something else!

I am glad that you Touch is running again. A real factory reset might also have worked, and is even easier.
