Unhappy my story has been frozen ever since i downgraded it

well this is really annoying.

i just got my story some weeks ago. yesterday i tried to downgrade it from 1.61 to 1.40. it booted normally, but when it came to the startup page, the page froze when the bar have almost finished (about 5mm still remain).

i tried to restart it for about 20times. each time it restarted but got stuck again when there were 5mm more. i tried to plug it into my computer but it only recharged.

can someone help me plz, i'm desperate.

if the center don't fix it
try this

download firmware 1.61 or later
and put EBOOK.HEX in sd card root (note must be named in capital letter, not ebook.hex)
put the sd card in the story and turn it on

hope it work


my personal note:
downgrade on the story was bad, because i think the registry was not resetted and get corrupted, so don't try it

We should not have to be computer programmers to get a simple device to work. The world is going crazy!

oh my, i've done that, but forgot to put it in capital letter. then i wouldn't have to travel all the way to the cs center. (believe me, the traffic in Vietnam is crazy)

well i finally got my story back from the cs center and put my sd card with 'EBOOK.HEX' into it => restart => nothing happened => hopeless.
can anyone visit this page: http://vanderwijk.info/2010/1/23/hac...-eb02-e-reader and tell me how to fix the problem as detailed as possible?

I have not found any easy steps to fixing your problems. My suggestions are either wait for somebody to reply on Ivo's blog or investigate this page http://openinkpot.org/wiki/Device/Story and go ask at the openinkpot IRC http://irc.openinkpot.org/%23openink...03-18.log.html

*hint - there are some instructions on running arbitrary code in the samplecode.zip file. Be careful though, because if you don't know what you are doing, you'll probably make it worse.
