UK Firmware

I have just flashed my PRS-505 with the PRS+ hack and would like to return to the UK firmware I had. However, it seems that Sony have done a good job of burying the firmware within their website.

Any ideas out there?

Restore with Universal Flasher. Copy to the SD Root, 4 and 6.

Woops - the Universal Flasher applications reads: Sorry, this firmware version is not supported ...

Any ideas?

What about
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu...05&region_id=1

I don't think, there's a UK only firmware.
That's the one I'm using.

You have the "files.505.1.2.00.18050" folder in the root of the SD?

If not, create it. It has the same subfolders that "files.505.1.1.00.18040"

Congratulations on getting your problem solved, duckbill!
I saw your post on your other help thread.

Gosh, that was a very scary few hours without my reader!
