Searching hither thither and yon in the internet I came across the following repository:

I downloaded the file: restore-set-sd-

Put it on an SD card, updated the ereader, it stated that it was finished updating and to restart, so I rebooted change. It's still in and endless loop of rotating arrows! AAAARGGHHH!

Looking on the SD card there is a new directory "dumps" containing the files:
mmcblk2p9.img and mmcblk2p10.img

it was supposed to also create a log file called diag.log, that tells if rescue did complete. That file does not exist. There is, however a file called script.log which contains:
