My Aura HD froze during an update this morning and now is a blank screen that flashes 2x when I turn it off but no amount of reset activity brings it to life.
I was hoping to be able to try the disk image restore described in these forums.
My unit is past warranty.

Thanks in advance

The image contains the Kobo firmware. At least part of that will be licensed. Parts of it is under one of the open source licences. As such, it shouldn't be made generally available. But, I consider making it available to people with the devices not a bad thing. If Kobo say something about it, that might change.

As to the problem, have you tried a factory reset using the buttons? See http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?p=2842901 for instructions. In case that doesn't work, I have sent you a PM with the link.

Thank you, davidfor.
I was unable to to a factory reset. Maybe because I had modified the software for android on the micro SD card.
Anyway, I was able to restore my Aura HD with the image you provided and I went through the reset procedure and the update and the darn thing froze again after the update! Blank screen! Flashes 2x when turning off but otherwise nothing!
But this time, I am able to perform the factory restore! Now if I can just figure out why it won't take to latest update from Kobo!
OK, the two updates that froze were performed using the Kobo Desktop software. When I perform the update via wi-fi..........Success!
Thank you, it looks like all is working again.

Funny story. In an enthousiastic attempt to add something that would enable ownCloud to sync files to my Aura HD I used a new, cloned SD card to work with.
Once I messed that up, it refused to boot. So hey, lets get the original card and OH NO CAT WHAT ARE YOU DOING.

Soo... can I be That Guy and ask for a link, too? Much appreciated :3
