Onyx Boox I62 HD Firefly Bricked

Hello, i did something stupid

i updated my brand new firefly with Fireware for i62ML V1.8 20130403
then i discovered that i was missing my light option. (oeps)

So i searched again and updated my firefly with an firmware from www.onyx-boox.com.
( I think, but tryed in meanwhile more firmware updates without any luck. I will describe what my firefly looks like.)

Now when i turn on my firefly i see 4 3d pieces of a puzzle on top of that the tekst BOOX reading the world.
On the bottom of the screen the black boxes are loading till 10 pieces then the system freezes. (big oeps)


Downloaded the correct firmware on a fat32 formatted sdcard
update-20130427 (onyx-international.com)

Then I powered on and holding the back button, then:

The system says:

Request for update detected, checking updates …..
No update found. Booting device … (system hangs)

the system stops responding.

Please is there a soloution for this ?

Rutger,

I accidentally installed the M92 firmware on my i62HD and it booted up funny too and I was able to recover from this.

First, I think you're not using the correct version of the firmware.

I recommend you go to the first discussion thread in this forum which contains links to the latest version of the firmware and be sure you've downloaded the correct version for your firefly. I would not get the software from www.onyx-international.com since it's different. You can download the firmware from the forum or from www.ereader-store.de. I've installed the version from the forum and it worked.

You want to copy the firmware file to an empty MicroSD card and keep it in the root folder. Do not create any folders on the MicroSD card or include any other files. Power off the i62 HD Firefly and insert the MicroSD card into the card reader slot. When you power on the i62 HD Firefly hold down the joystick button while turning on the power. Release the button once you see the updating firmware message. The correct version of the firmware should install and your i62 HD Firefly should boot up properly.
