Thanks. I'm downloading it now. I'll let you know the results with an edit to this post. The Kobo Wireless in question looks to be in almost new condition.

EDIT: Well, it went really well, once I figured out what I was supposed to do. First I tried copying the image to a SD Card and installing it via the SD slot. No go. Then I realized I had to make an image (fortunately Linux Mint has software for that built-in). Again I tried the SD card and slot. Still no go. Then I went to YouTube and realized that I probably had to open the Kobo Wifi and and write (open?) the image file to built-in micro-SD card ... and that worked. And then the Kobo went online (via WiFi) right away and downloaded an update and I was thinking "uh, oh, I hope don't have to start all over this again," but it all went well. So, short story long ... I've now got another Kobo WiFi (Wireless?) working.

Thank you.

Kobo Wifi upgrade problem

My wifes Kobo Wifi went into boot loop about a week ago. Looking on KOBOeReader partition there is a file kobo-update-1.9.12.zip that has 20/4/18 creation date. That is when my wife put it online for the first time.

I have been trying in vain to fix it with little success. All resets fail to change anything. Sent an email to Kobo and just got a standard reply. Frustrated that they don't make the old firmware available.

I noticed that 'DavidFor' is the Guru for these issues. I was hoping you could send me a recovery image for the N647. Thanks.

at the risk of sounding repetetive, I would also like a copy of the N647 sdcard image.

Would it be possible for me to also get a copy of the N647 image? I've been trying everything to fix my Kobo and I'm at the end of my rope with it.

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