Getting ready to try KSM 8. How do I make a backup of my firmware in case something breaks. To restore, do I just recopy the files into the current directories? I have a first edition H2O.

Thanks!

Cheers,
Rich

It's unlikely that anything you do with KSM would put you into a position where you can't recover by doing a factory reset. What you probably want to do is take a full copy of everything on the user partition of the device. That way, if you do need to do a factory reset, you can easily recover the books to the status you are currently at.

There is a way of taking an image from a running device to the external SD card. It is described in a thread here. But, there isn't a way to restore it to a non-working device without opening it. As such, it's probably just as easy to request an image when it is actually needed.

A swap of the SD card with a new one and restore of the image and yes it works. Thanks David.

Hello davidfor. I have a Kobo N647 and I am facing a problem when it starts. The screen freezes when the 5th square is completed. Could you send me a copy of this image and instructions, so to solve this problem?
Thank you very much !!

For instructions, see Memory Upgrade Mod Guide. It is for the Glo, but the basic steps and tools needed are the same.
