Hi guys,

I have a PRS-T1 which is bricked with READER on the screen.
Tried some recovery methods descrided on the forum with SD card but nothing works. Also no USB connectivity to PC.
SD led keeps blinking orange.
power led steady red, the led behind the power led blinking orange.

What can i do ?

Download partitions for your device, depending on firmware:
v. 1.0.07-eu:!NNUFCKAI!kV3Kr2Zvsa87_tFiDxOORw
v. 1.0.05-eu:!VZUlXYLS!LRPiGWlj5JMYhs-GBYzDRg

Get microSD card, format it FAT32

download & unpack

Put 'OS Firmware' folder in the root of SD card

Make sure PRS-T1 is turned off

Put microSD card in PRS-T1

Hold Home (middle) and Menu (most right) button, keep them pressed

Insert USB cable

Release buttons after Windows initializes the PRS-T1 with a sound (dong/bell)

Check Device Manager in Windows 10, check ports, see COMX port

Download & open putty

Select COM connection, type in COMX and press Open

Login to the PRS-1 with user root, enter

Type/paste the following commands and hit return after each line:

cd /initr/mnt/sd
dd if=disk3s1.bin of=/dev/mmcblk2p1
dd if=disk3s2.bin of=/dev/mmcblk2p2
dd if=disk3s4.bin of=/dev/mmcblk2p4
dd if=disk3s5.bin of=/dev/mmcblk2p5
dd if=disk3s6.bin of=/dev/mmcblk2p6
dd if=disk3s7.bin of=/dev/mmcblk2p7
dd if=disk3s8.bin of=/dev/mmcblk2p8
dd if=disk3s9.bin of=/dev/mmcblk2p9
dd if=disk3s10.bin of=/dev/mmcblk2p10

All should be OK now.
