Hi!
I have an old Kobo WiFi (I believe it's the Marvell 166e) that won't boot at all!
Could you please send me the SD image also?
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Davd: PM sent. I only have the one image for the WiFi, so, hopefully it is the correct one.

Has anyone had any difficulty flashing the image? I've done it at least three times now, but the reader's blue power light just stays solid when I turn it on and nothing happens. It's the N647B, also with a Marvell 166e.

Hi yes, I have had trouble too. At first I thought it was because I tried it with a 4 gb sdhc card and maybe it had trouble with that, but also I couldn't get it to work with the 2gb one that came with it either. Not sure what the problem is, I guess it could just be totally dead! If anything I've enjoyed trying to open it up and seeing the circuitry at least. I'll let you know if I manage to get it working!
EDIT: Looking back at old posts I saw a discussion on this, I think my CPU is the Marvell 166E, if this helps at all!

Bob,

It is the only image I have for the WiFi. I don't know if there were different versions of it.

The only suggestions I have is to make sure it is charged and try a factory reset using the buttons. I'm not sure how to that for the WiFi, but I remember the instructions have been posted on MR a few months ago.

I'm also in the same boat as everyone else with a Marvell 166e chipset. The blue LED lights up with no change to the display (same as if you try to power it up with the card slot empty). I've even tried the factory reset via the buttons with no luck... I think the only thing that'll get us e-reading again is a working SD image specific to the Marvell.
