The code is in the correct place, but -f checks for existence of a file, not directory. If you want to mount the whole directory:

Code:
if [ -d /Data/FONT ]; then
   mount --bind /Data/FONT /opt/sony/ebook/FONT
fi
For debugging you can probably echo some messages into a log file on /Data, but you should make sure it doesn't grow forever.

You can extract the cramfs.Fsk.img from the firmware updater.
If you want the final created image, you will need to edit make_opt.sh. I took out the code which copied it to the card since it was crashing the Reader. In the end, before the "Image created successfully " line, add the following:
Code:
cp $W_DIR/new_opt.img /Data

This isn't working for me. I made the change to make_opt.sh and the #5 create image runs successfully but I don't end up with a .img file on my card. I tried:

Quote:
cp $W_DIR/new_opt.img /Data
and
cp /tmp/self_upgrade/new_opt.img /Data

Then copy to SD, etc...

(There shouldn't be a space in 'application' but one shows up here for some reason!)

I tired editing it with notepad. I think I did it right. But it still didn't work. Is there any way you can attach something that will work?

Awesome. That works perfectly. It is so much more aesthetically pleasing with consistent, small menu items.

I can upload the file with the changes in it if anyone is nervous about doing it themselves. (I just don't want to step on anyone's toes...) Big thanks to igorsk and to gwynevans for the tips.

Hi...I'm trying to flash my updated 505 with the new Universal Flasher 2.0 (from the top of this thread). If I'm understanding this correctly, by successfully doing this, I'd have the clock back on my 505.

I haven't been successful, so far. When I put the SD card with the files from the zip in my reader and push the 5 button, I get the following message on my reader:

"Sorry, this firmware version is not supported: 505.1.1.00.18040".

Am I missing a step or doing something wrong?

Thanks for any help!!

Here's my make_opt file (If this upload takes). I renamed it make_opt.bat for the upload, so rename it back to make_opt.sh.

Any luck on the "enter" button quick shutdown? I really miss that. It's not already here is it? It's not working for me.

Do you have a directory named files.505.1.1.00.18040 in the root of the card?
