Device: elonex eb600
Exclamation Help bricked Elonex eb600 anyone got firmware image

I don't know if this is right place to post this basically i have bricked my elonex eb600 within 4hrs of owning it (dumb) without backing up firmware (downright idiotic!!). Basically i tried to install cool-er firmware on my elonex following these instructions My guess is that it ran the script below. The image 01.jpg is displayed maybe forever on my e-ink display. My guess is the hardware is different (has epson and serial boot flash) and have added what i have found out to openinkpot wiki. I hope that uboot is still working and will try serial when i get max3232cpe device tomorrow if not try jtag.
The problem is that i haven't got a copy of the original uboot , kernel or filesystem does anyone have a copy.

Thanks tony
