Creating Bad Images.

Hi,


This is a real basic question. I am new, a beginner in all things firmware, so please be gentle.


My Kobo Mini was recently locked into a Factory Reset loop. So, I had to flash with new FW.

Before I did so, I took an image of the uSD card. (The same uSD card with the Factory Reset loop)

Have I captured the Factory Reset loop error, in the image file, rendering it useless?

(i.e If I restore this same image, I will still find the same Factory Reset loop error)

most likely: yes

if you're missing any files, you could run photorec on the image, I guess

other than that a borked image is not very useful. you could go in and attempt to fix the problem, but why when known working images exist.

Thank you frostschultz,

I notice your list of add ons. Where might I find add ons, such as flashcards or chess?
